Before I begin this week’s mid major blog, there are two mid major players that deserve some recognition. With the 2016 Wooden Award Midseason Top 25 candidates being announced, senior forward Alec Peters of Valparaiso and junior guard Nigel Williams Goss of Gonzaga have been named finalists. Both players are having spectacular seasons for their respective schools and conferences. Peters is averaging 23.8 points per game, 10.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game, while he is shooting 45 percent from the field and 92 percent from the free throw line.
The fourth annual Mustang Madness tipped off in Paducah, KY. With a mix of top players from the ’17, ’18, and ’19 classes, some of whom will be college stars sooner than later. The event provided many quality names to keep up with moving forward.
