There were 6 British ballers in action last night in NCAA Division 1. Read on to see how they fared…
Ben Daniels (6’6, 190lbs, G, Freshman, Manchester) Houston Baptist Huskies
Houston Baptist Huskies were routed 107-87 by North Texas Mean Green (what a name!). The only positive being it mean Ben Daniels would get on to the court. He finished with a blank statline apart from 1 turnover in just 3 minutes of action.
The Houston Baptist Huskies are now 6-19 (5-2).
Glen Izevbigie (6’10, 230lbs, C, Senior, London) Savannah State Tigers
Savannah State won for the fifth time in its last seven, an 82-68 victory over Stetson. Big man Glen Izevbigie got 1 minute off the bench and finished 0/1 from the field for 0 points but did register 1 offensive rebound.
The Tigers are now 10-14.
Hugh Barnett (6’9, 265lbs, F/C, Senior, London) Arkansas Pine Bluff Golden Lions
Arkansas-Pine Bluff secured a win over Alcorn State (who have won just one game this season). Unfortunately, our Brit Hugh Barnet only managed 2 minutes off the bench, going 1/2 at the line for 1 point and adding 1 turnover.
Arkansas-Pine Bluff are now 10-14 overrall (not having won a game outside their conference), but sit second in the SWAC at 10-3.
Justin Robinson (6’2, 190lbs, G, Junior, London) Riders Broncs
Rider defeated St. Peters 72-66 last night thanks to 70.8 percent shooting in the second half (17 of 24), and 58 percent overall. Justin Robinson had a season high 8 assists to go along with 11 points (4/11 from the field, 1/5 threes, 2/4 at the line), 5 rebounds and 1 steal.
The Broncs are now 15-13 (8-8 in the MAAC).
Kene Anusionwu (6’8, 215lbs, F/C, Senior, London) Bethune Cookman Wildcats
Bad news for Bethune-Cookman Wildcats who were defeated 62-56 by Maryland-Eastern Shore. Even worse news for Brit Kene Anusionwu who registered his second straight DNP.
The Wildcats are now 14-12 (6-6 in the MEAC).
Larry Awosanya (6’7, 210lbs, F, Freshman, London) Campbell Fighting Camels
Campbell’s Fighting Camels secured a 71-64 win over Kennesaw State Owls. Not a good night for Freshman Larry Awosanya who registered a DNP.
Campbell Fighting Camels are now 16-9 (11-5 in the Atlantic Sun).
Except for Justin Robinson’s all around game, it was overrall not a great night for us Brits last night
