The NC-Double-Eh Weekly – December 6 – 13
Looking back on the week in the NC-Double-Eh, we look to give you a look at some key stories and lines that you should keep an eye on going forward in the NC-Double-Eh Weekly …
- Tevonn Walker (Montreal) was sidelined the last four games for Valparaiso with an apparent knee injury. The last game he played was Nov. 24 when Valpo beat Oregon St when he put up 15 points. There hasn’t been any news I could find what exactly what the nature of the injury is but all I can find is that he’s out “indefinitely”. His return is still possible but right now it’s a matter of when. Walker is poised to be a key player for the Crusaders this season and this could be a huge deal for them if his return becomes truly indefinite.
- Dylan Ennis (Brampton, ON) is still sidelined with the foot injury that has kept him out of the Oregon lineup since the start of the season. There is hope that he will take the court for around Christmas time, which is after the projected time of a month earlier in the season, but we will have to see.
- Dyshawn Pierre has lost another appeal to lift the suspension that he has been serving for an alleged assault. He is slated to be eligible to play for Dayton beginning Dec. 20 but whether he will is going to be the big question. Coach Archie Miller is reportedly going to talk to Dyshawn to discuss the possibility of rejoining the team this season. Pierre would be a welcome addition to the team but with the Flyers currently 7-2 would he really be welcome back?
- Iowa St freshman Bridget Carleton was sidelined for three games due an injury. She returned to action this past Friday. The injury was serious and may have included a concussion but she was able to come back this past weekend and she averaged 16.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 3 blocks in 28.5 minutes.
- Naz Mitrou-Long was a DNP in Iowa St’s 78-64 win over Ark-Pine Bluff Sunday. Iowa St head coach Steve Prohm stated that he was giving Mitrou-Long rest and said it would not extend past this week.
- Emily Potter had the best week of just about any player in the NCAA. In Utah’s two games this week against Creighton and BYU she averaged 26 points, 18 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 block in 33.5 minutes as the Utes split the games. She should be PAC-12 Player of the Week. UPDATE: She was the PAC-12 Player of the Week.
