Daily Dive – 2/21

Daily Dive – 2/21

By naiahoopsreport_admin February 21, 2021 0 Comments

The Daily Dive is your deep dive into the news and notes from around the NAIA Hoops World. Every day we will highlight some of the top headlines, conference updates, player accolades, coaching milestones and more. This used to be our Morning Bullet Points series. We went away from it this year, as others were doing similar things and we didn’t want to step on any toes. At the request of many, we have elected to bring it back for the second half of the season. Feel free to DM us on Twitter (@NAIAHoopsReport) or send an email to to recommend stories to be included into this segment.

A huge Saturday indeed as we saw a lot of the postseason playoff picture finally play out ahead of conference tournaments. We still have a few leagues that will have the final pieces play out over the next 48 hours, but yesterday was fun!
