OVC PLAYERS IN THE NBA
ISAIAH CANAAN (MURRAY STATE)
IC3 was finally called up to the Rockets after an impressive month in Rio Grande Valley. Canaan did not see the floor in the Rockets 111-104 loss loss to the Mavericks. Jeremy Lin finished with 20 points but Francisco Garcia played 35 minutes and scored just 3 points on 1 of 6 shooting. So maybe, with the way Canaan had been playing in RGV, he should have been given a chance over Garcia. But we all know at some point Isaiah will be given a shot.
KENNETH FARIED (Morehead State)
Mannimal was injured last week but the xrays showed that he did not sustain a major injury. He was doubtful for Monday’s game versus Golden State but will most likely play Friday in New Orleans. The Nuggets are 14-12 and 8 games back of first in the Northwest.
He also did THIS
IAN CLARK (BELMONT)
Last week we told you that Clark had been demoted to the Bakersfield Jam in the D-League. Well, this week we find out that he is back in Utah. You can check out his game field from his game versus Idaho here.
KELLEN THORNTON (TENNESSEE STATE)
Thornton went for 20 points in a loss to the Los Angeles Defenders. Idaho is on a three game losing streak but are still first in their division.
ROBERT COVINGTON (TENNESSEE STATE)
Covington is averaging almost 17 points and 10 boards per game. Rio Grande Valley is still in first place with a 10-2 record.
