For last week. Better late than never.
UAF: Ashton Edwards -24 points in a win against ND de Namur and then 14 in a close loss to Holy Names.
UAA: Travis Thompson -had a full house as well as 28 points against Rice University and then scored 14 and picked up 4 steals against Missouri State.
SFU: Sango Niang -29 points and otherwise good balance with HNU + 15 points and more balance against ND de Namur.
MSUB: Marc Matthews -Great game against Black Hills State, led the Montana Yellowjackets in scoring with 23.
CWU: Gary Jacobs -Went 7-11 and had 19 points against D3 Walla Walla –this is the benefit of the doubt that WWU and SPU don’t receive.
NNU: Erik Kinney -this was a difficult choice and while Erik had some turnover issues, he redeemed them with his assisting and rebounding prowess, while ultimately averaging 12.5 points for the weekend.
SMU: Ryan Rogers -His eight rebounds distinguish him in a balanced scoring attack from the Saints.
WOU: Julian Nichols -26 points and only one turnover against Academy of Art; 17 points and again only ONE turnover against CSU-Monterey Bay.
Lots of good and a few great performances; the winner will be announced tomorrow morning. The game day preview will go up shortly after that, and then we’ll get into yet another day of real GNAC basketball.
