In weekend college action in the States both Penina Davidson and Krystal Leger-Walker posted career best numbers. It was quiet on the men’s front although Tai Wynyard enjoyed a little more action than normal.
Davidson scored a career high as she posted a double-double of 22 points and 10 rebounds in Cal Berkeley’s 92-85 win against Pacific. Davidson’s points in the Golden Bears fourth straight win were punched at a very efficient 9 from 11 from the field and 4 from 5 free throws.
Leger-Walker was only one point shy of a double-double in Northern Colorado’s 55-44 loss to Colorado State – just the third loss of the season for the Bears. Her 10 assists were a career high and she added 9 points, 2 rebounds and a steal.
Brooke Blair top scored with 20 points (7/11FG) as Idaho State Bengals won an exciting 64-62 overtime encounter against Hawaii. The win snaps a two game losing streak and improves the Bengals to 6-3 for the season.
Dru Toleafoa logged 13 points and added 4 points and 13 rebounds as Santa Clara Broncos rode all over Menio to win 104-61.
The lack of opportunity afforded Tai Wynyard at Kentucky is evidenced by the game time afforded the former Rangitoto College standout in the Wildcats 93-76 win against Monmouth.
The game was played at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York where Wynyard, given 12 minutes of court time. The power forward responded with 4 points, 6 rebounds and 2 steals as Kentucky improved to 8-1 for the season.
12 minutes doesn’t seem a great deal of playing time but it equals the most opportunity he has been granted by Coach Calipari in his season and a half at Kentucky.
In his freshman year he averaged 3.6 minutes across 15 games played. Things haven’t improved greatly in season two with Wynyard averaging 5 minutes in the seven games he has played.
