Tuesday, February 2nd NAIA Games

Games of the Day:

Xavier vs 14 Talladega NOON CT Live Video

Two teams vying for a regular season GCAC title, two teams trying to help resume for NAIA National Tournament and two of the top players in the NAIA face off early on today’s schedule! You won’t want to miss this game, it’s going to be a battle! Xavier is coming off a Top 25 win over #24 Dillard last night and now set their eyes on back to back Top 25 wins. Dega has been on a bit of a roll but have to play XULA on the road. GCAC Player of the Year favorites, RayShawn Mart (XULA) and Darryl Baker (Dega) go head to head in this one as well!

There is no love loss between these two programs. It stems over from last season in the game at Columbia. You can expect a lot of high emotions in this game. From a standings perspective, Columbia really needs this win to stay just 1 game back of Central Baptist. You can expect a pretty low scoring game in this one, but we will see if Woods can slow down Tony Burks for a 2nd straight game. This game is going to be chippy and you can expect some fireworks!

With just four teams from the Aii playing in the conference tournament for the 1 automatic bid to the National Tournament, this game could very well be the two teams we see in the Aii Championship game. They will get a good look at each other in this contest. Neither has a great record, but if you want a good look at who may represent the Aii in the National Tournament, this is the game for you

 

Five Players To Watch

#1 Rodney Munson 6'2 G LSU-Alexandria

– 19th in the NAIA in 3FG% at 51%

– 32nd in the NAIA in FG% 60%

– 46th in NAIA in Asst/TO Ratio at 2.73

The Freshman has really stepped his game up since LSUA lost 2 of it’s top 3 scorers at the end of the 1st semester. He is one the most efficient scorers in the country right now. 

#3 Darryl Baker 6'4 G Talladega

– 7th in the NAIA in FT% at 92.6%

– 5th in the GCAC in scoring at 16.19ppg

– 18th in the GCAC in RPG with 4.36

Was the preseason GCAC POY and an HM All-American last season. He has been a bit inconsistent this season, but is still ultra talented. He has been dominant when he plays aggressive and forces teams to foul him,  but he also settles for jumpers at times. If Baker gets himself going today, WATCH OUT!

#3 Rayshawn Mart 6'3 G Xavier (LA)

Just named GCAC Player of the Week – His 4th this season

– 4th in the NAIA in SPG with 3.11

– 8th in the NAIA in PPG with 24.889

– Leads the GCAC in PPG and SPG and is Top 5 in FG%, RPG and 19th in APG.

We have talked about RayShawn a ton. We think he is one of the best two way players in the country. Today he will have to showcase that ability if XULA is going to get their 2nd Top 25 wins in back to back daysl

 

#4 Maxwell Starwood 6'8 F William Carey

– 43rd in the NAIA in Blocks with (40)

– 10th in the SSAC in scoring with 15.47

– 20th in the SSAC in rebounds with 5.24

– Leads the SSAC in FG%

Starwood is going to have to use his size to keep this active Loyola group off the glass, but he has been quite good over his past 7 games, only scoring below his average twice. If Starwood can get North of 20 in this one, Stillman is capable of pulling a huge upset.

 

#35 Brandon Thomas 6'6 C Bryan

– 11th in the NAIA in FG% with 65.8%

– 13th in the AAC in scoring at 16.20

– 12th in the AAC in rebounding at 6.47

The Junior just surpassed the 1,000 career scoring mark this past weekend. He will try to help lead this young Bryan team to a big win over Milligan tonight.
