December 18th, 2007

Three Stars of The Day


We handpick the best performances of the day, whether it be stat lines that make you drool, or clutch performances.  Either way, its our way of showing the love:


Darnell Dials - Eastern Kentucky

Had the best game of his 4-year career with 25 points, 11 rebounds, and the eventual game-winning three (his 5th three ever)


Tony Lee - Robert Morris

Approached a triple-double in a 764-71 win over WSU, finishing wih 16 points, 11 rebounds, and 9 assists


DeMarcus Nelson - Duke

Sure, he could have gone scoreless and Duke would still have won, but 23 points on 6 of 7 shooting in 26 minutes is solid


Other Top Performers

John Bryant - Santa Clara - Quietly putting up averages of 20 and 9 on the season, Bryant had 14 and 12 in a home win over Montana


Terrance Carter - James Madison - The senior had his 4th 20-point game of the year in a win over Radford, finishing with 22 and also hauling in 12 off the glass


Henry Salter - TCU - The Horned Frogs ended UTA's perfect record in OT, behind 17 and 14 from the junior
