News On The Horizon 4/1/2016

The Morning Dish – Thursday, March 31, 2016--Hoopville
That was illustrated again Wednesday night, when in their 38th game the Monarchs edged Oakland 68-67 to win the first-ever Vegas 16 tournament title. ODU ended an up-and-down season on a high and also won a debuting postseason tourney for the second time, having also taken the initial Tournament in 2009.
Wednesday’s game also was a matchup of two of the best scoring guards in the country, and it did not disappoint. Freeman and Oakland’s Kahlil Felder both scored 24 points each, but ODU’s Brandan Stith provided the difference with 14 points and 15 rebounds and sent out seniors Freeman, Aaron Bacote, Nik Biberaj and Martin Shaw out as winners. Which isn’t that surprising, since it’s something this group has done a lot the past two years.
Tonight’s Menu:

The championship game of the 79th annual NIT features Valparaiso and George Washington (7 p.m. EDT, ESPN). Both teams are looking for their first-ever title in this event. Should be an outstanding game, two excellent teams .
