CANMORE, Alta. — With all of the talent that the Rider Broncs have assembled, the future appears to be rather bright in Lawrenceville, NJ.

For starters, there’s star sophomore Stevie Jordan, who seems to flirt with a triple-double whenever the Broncs have a game. Then, there’s sophomore big man Tyere Marshall, who is anchoring the front court.

Add in Rider’s trio of talented freshmen this season, and it’s easy to see why this is a team on the rise. There’s Dimencio Vaughn, who has played well in just three games this season. You’ve got Jordan Allen, who is the team’s leading scorer, averaging a shade under 18 points per game. Lastly, you’ve got forward Frederick Scott, who had himself a solid week for the Broncs, who sit at 5-1 on the season after a perfect 3-0 week.

The 6’8” freshman was looking to help the Broncs build off a win last week over the Hartford Hawks. With three games this past week, Rider had three winnable games, all of which would add momentum to an already strong start.

Over the week, Rider would go onto win all three games, while Scott posted the second double-double of his young career, and added his first 20+ point game the next night out.

For his efforts over the past week, a stretch that saw him almost average a double-double, forward Frederick Scott has been named the College Court Report Freshman of the Week for November 20-26, 2017! Continue reading College Court Report Freshman of the Week: Frederick Scott, Rider Broncs

CHICAGO, Ill. — It’s always better to give than to receive.

On Monday night, the UIC Flames proved that to be true in their CBI quarter-final match-up with the visiting George Washington Colonials. Despite possessing a sub-.500 record after the regular season, the Flames looked good in their post-season opener against the Stony Brook Seawolves, and they were looking to build off the positive momentum.

It was a record night for the Flames as a whole, and for freshman guard Tarkus Ferguson. As a team, UIC tied the CBI single-game mark with 24 assists, and Ferguson tied the individual single-game mark, dishing out 12 dimes of his own.

The Flames only trailed the Colonials for a grand total of 44 seconds on Monday night. Ferguson narrowly missed a triple-double, recording six points, 10 rebounds, and 12 assists in the Flames’ 80-71 victory. Continue reading RECAP: Ferguson ties CBI single-game assist mark in 80-71 win for UIC

Just like last season, the Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks kicked off their 2016-17 campaign on the road against a high-calibre team.

With preseason expectations surrounding the Hawks ranging from a 5th-place finish in the MEAC to 11th, many were unclear as to what they would see from the team on opening night. Losing two senior leaders from last year, in Devin Martin and Dominique Elliott, left holes in the lineup, but also presented opportunities for others to step up.

The Hawks went on the road to take on the George Washington Colonials in their season opener. The Colonials, led by Tyler Cavanaugh, are the reigning NIT Champions.

On paper, it looked like the Colonials would cruise past the Hawks, But, that’s why games are to be played, because anything can indeed happen on the court.

Despite trailing by 10 at halftime, the Hawks launched a comeback in the second half to try and close the gap and take a lead of their own.

In the end, their comeback efforts would fall just short, and the Colonials held on for the 75-71 win to open the 2016-17 season. Continue reading RECAP: Maryland-Eastern Shore Hawks Fall Short in Comeback Efforts Against George Washington
