We are now closing in on conference preview 15 of 32, The Ivy League. I will be looking at three players that you need your eyes on this College Basketball season and in the future NCAA Tournament, the NIT, the CIT, etc. Enjoy!
Devin Cannady, Guard, Princeton
- The biggest movement from last season for Cannady is getting his shots. With getting over 10 3 point attempts per game, he has been a shot maker at 45% from the 3 point line, which is very close to top in all of College Basketball based on the amount of shot attempts.
- Based on Devin’s depth from beyond the three point line, I think he has the length to make an NBA roster. The Indiana native has a chance to get them to the tournament this year. Tigers Ya’ll.
- Free throws win games, the fact that coaches don’t stretch this theory blows my mind. Mitch Henderson has the most dependable free throw shooter in the Ivy League in Cannady, a clutch shooter at 95% thus far this season.
Matt Morgan, Guard, Cornell
- When looking at Morgan, maybe the times have changed in the Ivy League as far as 3 point shooting as Morgan is a consistent 46% from the 3 point line this year which is a 10% hike from last year.
- A danger when he has the opportunity to catch and shoot.This is his strong suit, don’t let it happen Ivy League defenders, you will be sorry!
- Morgan may go down as one of the most dominant players in Big Red history. A trip to the big dance would be a great way to close it out! NBA material.
AJ Brodeur, Forward, Penn
- When Brodeur brings his big rebounding capabilities, the Quakers are 3-0 this year. Definitely the top forward in the Ivy League with Seth Towns out.
- He has carried his team with 6 games over 18 points which only proves he’s carrying more on his plate when Ivy League play.
- Although his shooting is around 52% from inside the arch, you take a way the bad games against Delaware State, and two Power 5 schools he’s had an outstanding season for the Quakes. They may even quake enough, to get into the big dance!
