Virgin Islands junior men's national team member Jordan Murphy (201-F-97) was selected sixth by Ponce Lions of the annual Puerto Rican BSN Draft Wednesday evening. Murphy, a senior at Minnesota currently has 1,160 career rebounds, ranking second to Ohio State's Jerry Lucas (1,411 from 1959-62) for the all-time Big Ten Conference lead. Rebounding has always come easy for Murphy, but he worked on improving his passing this season. The results have been obvious with him averaging a career-best 2.9 assists, to go with 15.1 points and a Big Ten-best 12.0 rebounds per game this season. He tied his career-high with six assists for the second time in three games Sunday against the Hawkeyes. It might be tough for Murphy to overtake Lucas, but his senior season is far from over. The 6-foot-7 forward will continue to distance himself from everyone else in the Big Ten rebounding record books, including more recent stars like Michigan State's Draymond Green (1,096 from 2009-12).
Walter Hodge and Angel Rivera are the other Virgin Islanders that played in the BSN last season. Hodge suits up for the defending champions Arecibo Captains while his cousin Rivera comes off the bench for San German.

Kyle Clarke (196-G-95) had eight points and five rebounds as the Kennesaw State men's basketball team cruised to an 81-64 win over North Florida Wednesday night to earn its first ASUN win of the year. After the Ospreys (9-15, 3-6) opened the game with a three-pointer, the Owls (4-18, 1-6) battled back with a 7-0 run to take a 9-5 lead at the 15:39 mark. UNF pulled it to within one, 11-10, following a three-pointer, but another 7-0 run gave KSU an 18-10 cushion with 11:25 to play.
KSU and UNF then proceeded to go point-for-point before a 6-0 run for the Owls, capped off by back-to-back buckets from Kyle Clarke, gave KSU its largest lead of the half, 38-24, with just over two minutes to go. The Owls kept their double-digit lead heading into halftime, 38-28. KSU pushed its lead to as high as 20 points, 73-53, following a quick 5-0 run with over four minutes left to play.

Clash of the islands, Shaquan Jules (201-F) and the No. 6 nationally-ranked USC Aiken held off Miguel Arnold (180-PG) and Augusta University, 79-76, in a Peach Belt Conference rivalry showdown Wednesday night. Augusta freshman Miguel Arnold poured in 14 first-half points - making four early three pointers and he finished the night with a career-high 25 points. He also set a new personal record with seven made treys. Jules, a 6-7 freshman had three points and two rebounds. VIDEO

Shaun Willett (193-F) scored a career-high 30 points, but plagued by turnovers the No. 9/6 Queens University of Charlotte men's basketball team (19-3, 11-1 SAC) fell to Lenoir-Rhyne University (15-4, 8-3 SAC), 92-79, on Wednesday night at the Levine Center. Willett added nine rebounds as the loss put an end to the Royals' 14-game winning streak.

He will again compete in the Rising Stars Challenge and debut in the Slam Dunk Contest this weekend in Charlotte. There is a long list of reasons Collins wanted a chance to show his above-the-rim abilities and join a list of Hawks who have won the contest....   [read more]

By Adam Bushman Royce O'Neale(198-SF-93, college: Baylor)< paid many dues throughout his journey to the NBA. Splitting his collegiate eligibility between the University of Denver and the University of Baylor, O'Neale did his best to prepare for the NBA draft.
