Jam On It

Thanks, Rob

POW: Arnaud Dahi, Old Dominion: Dahi averaged 17.7 points and 10.3 rebounds as Old Dominion swept its three CAA games last week. The senior forward posted a double-double in the Monarchs’ 62-52 victory at Drexel with 14 points and a career-high 17 rebounds and had 14 points in just 22 minutes in a win over Georgia State. Dahi capped the week by tallying a season-high 25 points and nine boards in a 66-56 overtime triumph at George Mason, including a game-tying 3-pointer at the buzzer that forced the extra session.

NOW: Matt Janning, Northeastern: Janning repeats as CAA Rookie of the Week after averaging 17.3 points, 4.0 rebounds and 3.0 assists in Northeastern’s three games last week. The freshman guard was the Huskies’ leading scorer in each contest, tallying 18 points versus Drexel and Towson and 16 at Hofstra. For the week, Janning shot 50% from the floor and made eight 3-pointers. He leads all CAA freshmen in scoring with 11.9 ppg.

In a show of depth that wasn’t seen at all last year, 10 of the league’s 12 teams recorded at least one win and one loss last week. Old Dominion was the only CAA team to go undefeated over the three-game stretch, while Northeastern was the only squad that went winless. Interestingly, the two teams did NOT play each other.

Gary Neal became just the third player in NCAA Division I history to score 1,000 points at two different schools in the Tigers’ victory at James Madison last Monday.

Loren Stokes moved past former ODU standout Petey Sessoms into 8th place on the CAA’s all-time scoring list with 1,999 points after tallying 21 in the Pride’s win over Northeastern on Saturday. (Side note: I remember being on a golf trip watching Petey eat up Villanova.)

The top four teams in the CAA standings are among the top 67 nationally in the latest RPI ratings by Collegiate Basketball News through games of Feb. 4. VCU leads the way at #52, followed by Drexel at #55, Old Dominion at #63 and Hofstra at #67. The CAA moved up to #12 among Division I conferences.

The meaningful stat: Drexel shot 53.8% from the floor at NU and 48.9% against Towson, both wins, but hit only 27% in the ODU loss.

Georgia State beat the Dub 72-60 at home last Wednesday. The victory over UNCW gave State its first-ever sweep of a CAA opponent.
