There were a number of off days for our MVP candidates last night. Sohn of Trinity performed well considering the tempos in their win over a human controlled team. Lynchburg faced a Sim team. Woll shot comfortably on his home court, ending 6 for 9 from the field, but the real star of that game was the unlisted guard, Ralph Kim, who scored an amazing 32 on 10 for 15 shooting (7-11 from beyond the arc). John White of Wabash was last night's runner up for MVP and last night he shined again (albeit maybe not as brightly as last night). 22 points on 8 / 12 shooting, he's also been very efficient at the line. Regrettably, his performance was not enough to win away against the human controlled Denison and considering the tempos, again it would have been nice to see him pull in a couple more rebounds. Norman Griffith didn't [put up any impressive numbers and I have to say he is one of those players that doesn't look good on paper. He seems to be more of a role player and I may end up taking him off the list in a few games, but I urge you to check out his ratings. His stats might not show it, but Darnoc's undefeated record does- the guy is a defensive nightmare for any team. Wittenberg managed to pull out the win playing away, though they struggled with an off night performance. Calvin crushed the SIM controlled Hope team on their own court. You might say it's impressive that Christianson shot over 50% from 3, but what if I told you he's been averaging over 50% all season long? 53.1% so far, to be exact :) Don't leave that guy open. R. Cherry had been putting up impressive stats and percentages thus far, and last night he did not falter. He should be given props for his consistency. On to the GNE, Rivier has been steamrolling through conference play, 3-0 now after an away win against the human controlled Norwich. Mikkelson has nothing to feel bad about after last night's game, shooting 67% on 4-6 and holding his opponent to 3-10 shooting, while bringing in 8 boards... all this with Slowdown-Slowdown tempos. Next is Vassar and it's two candidates: Sutton and Lujan. Winning away last night against a SIM, Lujan clearly was the game MVP for Vassar, putting up 35 points on some amazing shooting from tray land. Even with an uptempo, 7 assists and 35 points are quite remarkable, more so with only 2 turn overs and 1 foul. He's a clear favorite for last night's MVP. Last on the list is T. Andrews of Susquehanna. His team played away and lost against ther SIM, Pittsburg Bradford who has been playing very well this season. Andrews didn't do anything remarkable for this game, though it should be mentioned he held a 98 LP shooter to 10 points on 3-7 shooting. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ I think if it were me, I'd give the MVPotN to Lujan- Mikkelson a close second. Now before you compare the two players' stats and wonder if I've lost my mind, consider the difference in tempos and the fact that Mikkelson was playing away from home against a human controlled team (Note: Lujan was also playing away from home). Putting up 8 rebounds in a Slow-Slow tempo is nothing to sneeze at, for sure. My third pick of the night is R. Cherry, though had Wabash won, I think I would have favored John White's performance for third place. But how would you pick them?
