Today's tournament games may not be in the NCAAs but the games with Ashaolu, Joseph and Dylan Ennis are worth checking out for sure and the women's game is worth a look too ...
Here is where the men are playing today ...
7:00pm Massachusetts @ Drexel
9:00pm Oregon @ Washington - Oregon may not be in the NCAA Tournament but they are making a pretty good run in the NIT. In their two wins over LSU and Iowa, both Devoe Joseph and Olu Ashaolu are playing pretty well. Over the last two games, Joseph is averaging 20 points, 4 rebounds and 7 assists only missing 4 minutes. Ashaolu is averaging 15.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3 assists and a block in 21.5 minutes off the bench. Going up against PAC-12 rival Washington will have some added edge to it since the Ducks split the season series with them 1-1. Now with the stakes exponentially raised here, can Oregon make it two straight wins against the Huskies?
7:00pm Rice @ Oakland - Freshman Dylan Ennis has been playing great all season and he's continued it into his first post season tournament. In the win over Drake in the second round of the College Insiders Tournament he had one of his better games, as I mentioned earlier on in another post. He's averaging 13.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 4 assists and a block in 26.5 minutes over the pair of wins.
And here is where the women are playing today ...
7:20pm California vs. Notre Dame - Natalie Achonwa tied a career high with 5 assists in Notre Dame's NCAA first round against Liberty Sunday. She also chipped in 8 points, 2 rebounds and a steal in 18 minutes and could be a key factor to a win here. Cal is one of the better teams coming out of the PAC-12 and could be a tough out for the Irish.
9:40pm Kansas vs. Delaware
