There was tons of great college basketball tonight around the country. Here are some transfers that stood out:
Oscar Tshiebwe, Kentucky:
In typical Oscar Tshiebwe fashion, he picked up another double-double. His 22 points and 18 rebounds were not enough to avoid the upset to Michigan State in the Champions Classic, though.
Joey Hauser, Michigan State:
Hauser seemed to hit everything when the clock was expiring in Michigan State’s big win over No.4 Kentucky. The Marquette transfer had 23 points and 8 rebounds, leading the team in both categories.
Johni Broome, Auburn:
The double-double machine picked up his first for Auburn in only 20 minutes, racking in 13 rebounds and scoring 18 points in a win against Winthrop.
Tristen Newton, UConn:
Newton was one of a handful of players to pick up a triple-double on Tuesday night. In an 84-64 win over Buffalo, he scored 22 points, pulled down 10 rebounds, and dished 11 assists.
Will Douglas, Prairie View A&M:
Prairie View A&M boat raced Washington State, leading from start to finish. Douglas’ 26 points led the way for the Panthers.
Ike Nweke, Quinnipiac:
Ike Nweke racked in his second double-double in as many weeks. His 18 points and 11 rebounds pushed QU to an 81-72 win over Dartmouth.
Andrew Carr, Wake Forest:
Wake Forest needed overtime to beat Utah Valley, but if it wasn’t for Carr’s attributions, they would’ve lost in regulation. He finished with his first Demon Deacon double-double with 15 points and 14 rebounds.
Connor Vanover – Oral Roberts
The 7’5″ center had his first double-double for the Golden Eagles in a big 82-64 win at Texas Southern.
Josiah Allick – New Mexico
Allick led New Mexico in scoring, rebounding, and towards a signature 84-63 win at SMU.
D’Moi Hodge – Missouri
As he did at Cleveland State, D’Moi Hodge had one of his signature scoring bursts on Tuesday night. The British Virgin Islands native scored 30 points in a 105-80 win over SEMO.
DeAndre Williams – Memphis
DeAndre Williams had the biggest game of his three-year career at Memphis, picking up a double-double with 21 points and 12 rebounds. The Tigers still lost to Saint Louis in a big mid-major matchup.
Kenan Blackshear – Nevada
Against non-D1 William Jessup, Blackshear racked in the first triple-double of his collegiate career.
EJ Harkless – UNLV
EJ Harkless scored 24 points including the dagger in UNLV’s 60-52 upset win over No.21 Dayton.
