Marcus Ottey, UIC

UIC’s freshmen continue to impress, and this week Ottey topped the list with 15.5 points per game on 54.5% shooting. For the first time this season, Ottey failed to get to the foul line in a win against Chicago State, but he got back to his old ways against Eastern Illinois with 6-of-8 shooting at the stripe.

Ottey also had two steals in each of UIC’s games last week.

Scanning the Nation Notebook – Dec. 6, 2016--Hoopville
-As we’re now nearly a month into the season, we’re starting to see a number of teams that were on the preseason sleeper lists steady themselves after perhaps slow starts. Middle Tennessee State is now 8-1, while UNC Wilmington is 7-1 with its only loss to the Blue Raiders. Valparaiso also is 7-1 even after a convincing loss at Oregon, and the Crusaders get a chance to make an impression if they can at least stay close this week at Kentucky. The lesson: don’t forget about these teams just because of early missteps.
