Thursday, February 4th NAIA Games

Games of the Day:

 RV Cumberlands @ 20 Thomas More 8pm ET Live Video

Thomas More has been rolling winning 10 of their last 11 games. Cumberlands on the other hand is trending downward losing 3 of its last 5 games, including coming into this game on a two game losing streak. Cumberlands did hand Thomas More 1 of it’s 4 losses on the season though and you expect this to be another great game between the two.  This is a MUST win for Cumberlands as a current team on the bubble, and having a bit of a tough stretch left, they need wins yet to get into the National Tournament. 

Missouri Baptist @ Columbia 7:30pm CT Live Video

Columbia remains 1 game back of Central Baptist in the AMC Standings and has been playing good basketball. They have a tough test tonight against a good MoBap team who sits just 1 game back of Columbia for 2nd place in the AMC. This should be a slower paced game, but should be a fun back and forth battle. The matchup to watch in this one is Tony Burks (Columbia), who leads the AMC in scoring, versus Brendon Harvey (MoBap)!

19 Tx A&M Texarkana @ 2 LSU – Shreveport  7:30pm CT Live Video

Neither team has had a great SoS to this point as LSUS has a SoS of 164 and Texarkana’s is 192 out of 195 teams. It has made it hard to really gauge how good both of these teams really are. However, both have mostly done what good teams are supposed to do against the competition they were playing. With the first real test of the year for both teams, it will be interesting game to watch. Shreveport continues to have one of the best back courts in the county, so if Texarkana can find ways to slow down this potent offense, they will give themselves a chance in this one. 

 

Five Players To Watch

#0 Kortland Martin 5'10 G Freed-Hardeman

– 14th in the NAIA in 3FGM

– 18th in 3FGM per game at 3.353

– 33rd in the NAIA in Total Assists

– 36th in the NAIA in APG with 4.765

– 50th in the NAIA in FT% at 83%

Still feels like he is one of the most undervalued players in the NAIA. Kortland Martin has had a great career and is having a stellar Senior season. He’s had seven games with 20+pts on the season. 

#5 Kadavion Evans 6'0 G LSU Shreveport

–  8th in NAIA in SPG with 2.778

– 9th in the NAIA in PPG with 23.444

– 37th in the NAIA in FT% 85.5%

Get yourself familiar with Kadavion Evans and LeAndre Washington of LSU-Shreveport. The dynamic duo are both Top 15 scorers in the NAIA. The #2 ranked Pilots, have their 1st real test of the year tonight against #19 Texarkana. Evans is an electric playmaker who will stuff a stat sheet. 

#1 Markell Turner 6'2 G Union

– 2nd in the NAIA in 3FG made per game at 4

– 2nd in the NAIA in PPG with 27.313

– 5th in the NAIA in Total Points

– 6th in the NAIA in 3pt FG made

Markell should be on his way to the AAC Player of the Year. Union hasn’t had a prototypical “Union” type year, but Markell has been nothing short of spectacular. He’s on a streak right now where he’s had 3-straight 30+ pt games. In fact, he’s only been held under 20pts one time this entire season. The Sophomore is a STUD!!

#2 James Jones 6'4 G Shawnee State

– 17th in the NAIA in Total Points

– 21st in the NAIA in Total Assists

– 37th in the NAIA in APG with 4.37

– 44th in the NAIA in scoring with 19.63ppg

EJ Onu and James Jones have this Shawnee State team looking like a real National Championship contender. Jones has not been held under 12pts all season. He’s a guy that won’t just look for his though, he is also a great and willing passer. It’s been that combination that has made him a great asset to this Bears team.

#5 Connor Ouellette 6'4 G Tx A&M Texarkana

– 5th in the NAIA in 3FG% at 57%

These RRAC schools haven’t had the toughest of schedules so it is going to be fun to watch Texarkana vs Shreveport tonight. Ouellette came on strong at the end of last season and has carried it into this season. He is automatic if you lose him!
