Duncan ties Nik for season made 3 pointers.

Duncan ties Nik for season made 3 pointers.

Submitted by champswest on March 17th, 2016 at 2:26 PM

With last nights win over Tulsa, Duncan Robinson tied Nik Stauskas for fourth place in single season made three point field goals at 92 and needs one more against Notre Dame to tie Louis Bullock for third place. Current standings: 1. Bullock 101, 2. Glen Rice 99, 3. Bullock 93.

In 2013-14, as a sophomore, Nik made 92-208 for a .442 average in 1281 minutes played in 36 games.

Duncan has played 1002 minutes in 35 games and has made 92-206 for a .447 average.

If that isn't close enough for you, Bullock made 93-207 in 1997-98. So, if Duncan makes his first three point attempt against ND, he will tie for third place on the same exact number of shot attempts.

Xavier Simpson named Gatorade POY for Ohio

Xavier Simpson named Gatorade POY for Ohio

Submitted by Raoul on March 17th, 2016 at 9:47 AM

After being named Ohio's Mr. Basketball yesterday, Xavier Simpson garnered another honor today: Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Ohio.

The 6-foot, 175-pound senior point guard has led the Spartans to a 28-0 record and a berth in the Division I semifinals, scheduled for March 18. Simpson is averaging 28 points, 6.3 assists and 3.7 steals per game through 28 games, shooting nearly 60 percent from 3-point range. . . .

"I can’t believe that there is a player in Ohio that is more important to his team’s success than Xavier Simpson," said Jim Rucki, head coach at Findlay High. "He makes everyone around him a better player. He is true point guard. He keeps his team under control and is a coach on the floor. He can be a great scorer when he needs to be, but has an uncanny ability to give his teammates the ball right where they need it. He is the best player in Ohio."

Hello all, I am a student at the University of Dayton, and I unfortunately cannot make the game tonight and am trying to sell my tickets. They are normal GA tickets, not students. I got them for 45 a piece and would like to get close to that. Tickets are in the 400 section. Anyone interested?

We had over 650 participants last year! I finished near the bottom so I'm looking for some redemption this year. Last year's winner was goblue10 who finished with 1540 points (99.7 %) and correctly picked Duke as National Champs.

Good luck to everyone and as always, GO BLUE!
