DIVISION I HOOP ROUNDUP #2: Mustapha Heron continues to score in double figures

Heron (Auburn athletics)

Mustapha Heron
The opponent could be Eastern Kentucky or the University of Kentucky.
It hasn’t mattered to the Auburn freshman Heron and his assault on the record book. Heron has played 17 games — starting every one of them — and has scored in double figures in each one of those games. What the former Sacred Heart superstar has done has set the program record for most consecutive double figure scoring games to open an Auburn playing career.
In the third game of the season against Eastern Kentucky, Heron dropped 24 points. Last Saturday, Auburn played in Rupp Arena against the ultra-talented University of Kentucky. Heron scored 11 points against some of the best talent in college basketball. The Tigers lost 92-72 to the Wildcats.
In the first game of the week last Tuesday, Auburn beat Missouri 77-72 on the road, and Heron was a huge reason why. Heron scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half, including seven of the last 11 Tiger points.
Heron and Auburn take on LSU and Alabama in SEC home games this week.

Wright (Montana athletics)

Walter Wright
Wright had some foul trouble in his two games this past week, but the former Wilby star still helped the Griz win twice.
In a 89-68 win over Northern Colorado last Thursday, Wright scored 16 points and dished out three assists in 20 minutes of action. Wright went over double figures again in last Saturday’s 76-70 victory over North Dakota, scoring 13 points and passing out four assists in 25 minutes.
Wright is averaging 11.7 points, 3.2 assists and 2.0 rebounds per game. He has played in all 19 games, making seven starts.
Montana has two Big Sky games on Thursday and Saturday against Portland State and Sacramento State.

Brooks (Marshall athletics)

Khadaijia Brooks
The former Bristol Eastern star picked up her second straight double-double in a 72-63 loss to Middle Tennessee State last Thursday. Brooks scored 11 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in 34 minutes of play. She also had two assists in the game.
In last Saturday’s 61-58 win against UAB, Brooks played a team-high 36 minutes. She had three points and four rebounds, but she also had two assists, two blocks and one steal.
Brooks is averaging 8.1 points and a team-best 7.4 rebounds per game. Brooks has started all 17 games and is averaging a team-high 30.5 minutes.

Flowers (UMass athletics)

Tyrn Flowers
The former Sacred Heart standout has played in every game at UMass this season, though his minutes have varied wildly from a high of 26 to a low of five.
The Minutemen took on Dayton at home last Wednesday, then faced Rhode Island on the road this past Sunday. Flowers played eight minutes in the 67-55 win over Dayton and had two points to go along with one rebound and one block. Flowers didn’t score and grabbed three rebounds in 10 minutes of action in the 79-77 loss to Rhode Island.
Flowers is averaging 5.1 points and 2.8 rebounds in 13.7 minutes of play.
