On a quiet Wednesday night of NCAA basketball, two Canadians let their game do all the talking.
Daniel Mullings has been a staple for the NMSU program and their top producer, while Saskatchewan’s Joe De Ciman is on the come up, now a sophomore earning minutes for Colorado State and working his way into the starting line up. Both guards are averaging career highs in almost every statistical category.

- Daniel Mullings and his New Mexico state Aggies fell victim to the #1-ranked team in America, the Arizona Wildcats, 74-48. The Scarborough, Ontario product was the only player who really showed up for the Aggies, and the only one to reach double figures registering 18 pts (6-14, 6-7 FT), two rebounds, three assists, but did have an alarming six turnovers. The junior guard is averaging a career-high 17.6 PPG on an efficient 49% from the field.
- Joe De Ciman (Regina, SK) put in 12 points (4-8 FG, 3-4 3PT, 1-2 FT) for Colorado St, but it was not enough as the Rams fell to Denever 80-70. De Ciman also added two rebounds and an assist while scoring in the double digits for the fifth time this season.
- Following a season-high 17 points in victory over St Bonaventure, Jarryn Skeete (Brampton, ON) was ice cold from the field against Canisius (0-8 FG) but did contribute in other areas, snatching seven rebounds and dishing out four assists.
