Tough Night For Brits in The NCAA, Roundup 16/02/10

We had 4 British basketball players in action last night in NCAA Division 1, read on to see how they fared

Carl Josey of VMICarl Josey (6’5, 195lbs, F, Senior, Surrey) Virginia Military Keydets
After registering a number of DNP’s and limited minutes this season, Carl Josey was thrust into a starting role last night. The good news was that VMI registered a 91-84 win over High Point Panthers. Unfortunately, Josey struggled to acclimatise to his starting spot and went scoreless (0/1 field goals, 0/2 at the line) adding 2 rebounds in 17 minutes. Expect those numbers to rise if he starts the remaining games on the season.

The Keydets are now 10-16 (5-11 in the Big South).

Danny Carter StonybrookDanny Carter (6’9, 210lbs, F, Sophomore, Windsor), Stony Brook Seawolves
Stony Brook secured a comfortable 86-72 victory over UMBC Retrievers. I would have expected Danny Carter to perhaps see more minutes after registering a lot more in closer games this season, he finished scoreless going 0/2 (0/1 threes), adding 1 rebound and 1 assist in just 8 minutes of playing time.

Stony Brook Seawolves are now 19-7 (11-2 in the Am. East).

Mikey Manghum Oral RobertsMikey Manghum (6’1, 175lbs, G, Freshman, Derby) Oral Roberts Golden Eagles
Oral Roberts Golden Eagles cruised to an easy 20 point win, 76-56 over Centenary Gentlemen. This meant Derby boy Mikey Manghum would see his second highest minutes total all season at 23, however he couldn’t capitalise, going 0/3 from the field (0/2 threes) to go scoreless, adding 2 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 block and 2 turnovers.

Oral Roberts are now 16-12 (11-5 Summit).

Will OghuaregbeWill Oghuaregbe (6’8, 255lbs, F, Freshman, London) North Carolina-Wilmington Seahawks
North Carolian-Wilmington suffered another loss in an increasingly difficult season, 65-56 to Northeastern Huskies. Brit Will Oghuaregbe got 8 minutes off the bench, going 0/1 to complete an empty stat line except for 1 personal foul.

NCW are now 8-19 and sit among the bottom 4 in their conference (CAA) at 4-12.

To Summarise..

We struggled last night, registering 0 points between 4 players in 56 minutes. The positives are that of those 4, two are Freshman, one’s a Sophomore and the other was in a role he is unaccustomed to (not even mentioning the fact he is usually asked to play the centre position..Carl Josey is a lot of things, but a centre is not one of them!). Onwards and upwards!
