Shaun
Willett
Queens University of Charlotte senior forward Shaun Willett (193-F) was featured in SportsCenter's Top 10 Plays of the Night, on Jan. 3, 2019, for a dunk that helped Queens to a 102-85 win over Virginia Union University at the Levine Center. The dunk, which was Willett's fourth of the game, was ranked No. 7 by ESPN.

With 2:28 remaining in the first half, Willett caught a pass at the top of the key and drove right for a right-handed tomahawk jam over a leaping defender that gave Queens a 45-27 lead. Willett finished the night with a career-high 28 points on 11 of 15 shooting, and 14 rebounds to post his NCAA-leading 12th double-double of the season.

Willett became the second Queens player to ever appear in the nightly countdown by ESPN's flagship program. On Nov. 18, 2016, a dunk by Daniel Camps received the No. 9 ranking from ESPN's Top Plays in an 84-69 win over Lees-McRae College.

Led by Willett, Queens has won eight straight games, including six in a row by double figures. The Royals return to action on Wednesday, Jan. 9, at Newberry College. Opening tipoff is scheduled for 9 p.m.

Brooklyn ends Nicolas Claxton's draft wait with first pick in NBA second round - 5 days ago
Nicolas Claxton (211-SF-99)'s decision to leave Georgia after his sophomore season looked shrewd leading up to the NBA draft with all of the buzz that he'd go in the first round. Claxton's patience was tested Thursday night as he waited in the 'green room' of the Barclays Center and that goal of his didn't materialize. He slipped to the first pick of the second round before draft host Brooklyn selected him with the No. 31 overall pick. 'I just want to show people I can play,' Claxton sa...   [read more]
