NAIA Morning Bullets
It’s Election Day in America, which means tensions will be high over the course of the day. Like our Tweet said earlier today, no matter who you voted for and no matter who wins today, lets work to treat people better and become Unified again! There is too much division and hate going on, and it’s time we do our OWN part, in correcting it!
With that being said, we are bringing back a popular segment from last year called our NAIA Morning Bullets. This segment is a quick look back at some of the news, scores, and updates from around the NAIA basketball world.
BIG congrats to one of the best young coaches in college basketball, Chris Briggs. Coach Briggs and his #1 Georgetown Tigers were able to hold off a pesky Midway team last night, earning Coach Briggs his 250th career win!

A player to keep an eye on in the National Player of the Year picture is Rayshawn Mart of Xavier (LA). The 2x- All-American continues to put up good numbers again this year, helping Xavier to a nice 76-63 win over William Carey last night! They will need him to keep playing well as they have a BIG time game this weekend with #16 Loyola (LA).

The Cascade Conference is still working towards playing basketball. As of right now the teams in Oregon are unable to even practice, but the CCC has a very extensive Return to Play Plan, and are trying to have first games on December 4th. We will keep you posted as things progress.

Returning All-American Kadavion Evans had himself a night this past weekend. Evans posted a QUADRUPLE DOUBLE in their blowout win over Dallas Christian. Evans is a D1 Transfer from UL-Lafayette, who had a nice year for LSUS last season. He is another player who will surely be in the running for NPOY this season!
