A routine dispatching of Rutgers in MSU’s conference opener was paced by 20 from Ward but he followed that up with a dazzling 26 against 18th ranked Iowa on a perfect 10/10 from the floor. All told, Ward accrued 46 points on 68% shooting in a pair of Spartans victories to open conference play.

2018 Maui Invitational: Top Prospects

Mon, 12/03/2018 - 11:58pm

Each year the Maui Jim Maui Invitational provides arguably the best early season tournament, and that is especially true when a number of elite teams are involved, as was the case this year with Gonzaga, Duke and Auburn, all top 10 teams coming into the field. The event has a great track record of producing National Champions and long tournament runs, as a number of Maui Invitational winners have gone on to win the NCAA title, including Duke, UNC and UConn. It provides a unique opportunity for scouts to see teams and more importantly top prospects compete in a win or die format.
