SSC again ranked # 1: For the ninth time in Coach John Pigatti’s 16 seasons at South Suburban, the Bulldogs are the nation’s top-ranked NJCAA Division II men’s basketball team. The Bulldogs (14-0) have moved up one spot from the last poll, replacing former No. 1 Mott of Flint, Michigan.
Brown de Valpo named MVC Newcomer of the Week: After posting a pair of solid performances that helped the Valparaiso women’s basketball team in their first-ever Northern Iowa / Drake weekend sweep of the Missouri Valley conference calendar, the junior Olivia Brown (East Grand Rapids, Michigan) was named MVC Newcomer of the Week. Brown opened the weekend with a record 18 points in Valpo’s win over UNI. She followed that performance with an 11-point effort on Sunday in the victory over Drake. His efforts helped Valpo secure the team’s first victory over the Bulldogs in program history.
Purdue men’s game in Michigan postponed: The Purdue Michigan men’s basketball game scheduled for Tuesday in Ann Arbor, Michigan has been postponed due to continued internal COVID-19 protocols within the Michigan program. Michigan, following medical tests, fell below the Big Ten Conference roster low with fewer than seven stock players available on Friday, resulting in its game against Michigan State being postponed on Saturday. Michigan still fell below the low for Tuesday’s game with the Boilermakers.
