NAIA Hoops Report Game of the Week

We had selected the GPAC matchup between No. 5 Jamestown and No. 23 Concordia (NE) as our Game of the Week, but Jamestown didn’t want to participate in the fun, as they go on the road and absolutely crush the Bulldogs, 90-59. The win, ended a 23-game home win streak for CUNE. Mason Walters continues to add to his resume for National Player of the Year, as he finishes with 33pts, 9rebs and 6assts. All of which were game highs. You can read more on the game below:
