In another light Monday, we have a game from the west coast that features the return of sorts of a prodigal son, or sons if you will, to the floor as well as a few other contests ...
Marquee Match Up
Remember that you can find the full list of players playing in Division 1 right here.
10:00pm Portland State @ Oregon
Devoe Joseph played his first game as an Oregon Duck this past Saturday and he had one hell of a game. In the win over Fresno State, he was nothing short of magnificent. Showing no rust from the near 12 month layoff Joseph had 18 points on 6-of-13 shooting including 3 treys, 4 assists and 2 steals in 29 minutes off the bench. I’m sure he felt vindication particularly since he was hounded by situations at Minnesota. In his second game back, it will be interesting to see if he gets inserted into the starting lineup. On the other spectrum, Olu Ashaolu seems to continue with inconsistent playing time leading to overall inconsistency. He’s totaled 10 points and 13 rebounds in 52 minutes over his last two games. He’s obviously not the same player he was at Louisiana Tech but with a position change you would have expected some adjustment. But with the season a third of the way done, will Olu be able to adjust with enough season left to show that he’s the player everyone thought he was last season?
Here is where everyone else is playing tonight …
7:00pm Arcadia University @ Lehigh
8:00pm Oral Roberts @ Arkansas-Little Rock
8:00pm Dakota State @ South Dakota State – South Dakota State’s Taevaunn Prince has scored in double digits in his last two games and is averaging 14 points and 3.5 rebounds in a very efficient 16.5 minutes.
And here is where the ladies are playing tonight … actually there are no ladies games with Canadians in them. It must be a mani/pedi girls night out (I’m just playin’ y’all).
