Five Players to Watch

Angelo Johnson 6’0, Arizona Christian

2020-21 HM All-American

Angelo showed last season that he is one of the best guards in the country. The All-American is a smart, savvy play maker who is great at making plays for himself and others.

Christian Rodriguez 5’9 Cornerstone

2019-20 All-American

Christian came back for his 5th year of eligibilty and we couldn’t be happier. He is one of the best passers in the country and averaged over 6apg last year. 

Jaylon Scott 6’5 Bethel (Ind)

2020-21 1st Team All-American

Pro Scouts always hit us up and we don’t make it far without bringing up Jaylon. He is one of the best all-around players in the country. He had several triple-doubles last season. His skillset and toughness makes him very tough to defend.

Alex Van Kalsbeek 6’6 Northwestern (IA)

2020-21 3rd Team All-American.

Last season he was one of the best Freshman in the NAIA. He was 2nd in the GPAC in scoring, led the NAIA in FG% and finished inside the Top 30 in total rebounds on the year. He is a STUD!

Seth Maxwell 7’0 Indiana Wesleyan

2020-21 HM All-American.

The preseason CL Player of the Year. One of the best bigs in the country. Maxwell can hurt you both inside and out. He is also one of the premier shot blockers in the NAIA. 

Games of the Day

#11 Talladega @ Missouri Baptist 7pm CT

The Missouri Baptist University Classic gets tipped off tonight with a really intriguing battle between Talladega and Missouri Baptist. Talladega is loaded with talent and if Vegas had lines, they would be the favorite to win. However, this MoBap team, in Head Coach Preston Ingram’s second season, is ready to take that next jump up. While tonight’s game isn’t a make or break for the season, the Spartans can make a BIG statement with a win. 

#9 Indiana Wesleyan vs RV Indiana Tech – 6pm CT

WHAC/CL Challenge

IWU begins the post Kyle Mangas era tonight. While they lose two of their top three players, including Mangas who was a 2x NAIA Player of the Year, they still return quite a bit and have the Crossroads Preseason Player of the Year, Seth Maxwell, back in the fold as well. The Indiana Tech trio of Rog Stein, Grant Smith and Josh Kline will be looking to make a BIG early statement with an upset win tonight. We think this Indiana Tech is better than what most think. Tonight they have a chance to prove it. That will be no easy task as IWU has been one of the very best NAIA program over the past decade.
