Alumni Harrison, Del Cadia turn in strong performances


PRESTON – It was another strong week for Myerscough alumni pair Shauna Harrison (Class of 2018) and Edoardo Del Cadia (2018) whilst others stepped up in wins for their respective collegiate programmes.

Harrison reached double-figures scoring with 10 points in all three games for Cal U this week. The sophomore guard added five rebounds, including four offensive boards, and five assists in a 68-57 win over Central State (OH) on Tuesday. The Vulcans remained unbeaten and improved to 7-0 on the season ahead of the Thanksgiving break.

For Del Cadia, meanwhile, it was the return of “the chef” moniker, which followed him throughout his career at Myerscough. The Italian forward recorded his sixth collegiate double-double (11 points & 11 rebounds) on Wednesday against South Georgia Technical College and followed that up with another 11 points — on 3-of-4 shooting from 3-point range — and nine rebounds over the weekend.

Drexel powered its way to a win on Wednesday, hitting 12 3-pointers in the process. Mate Okros (Class of 2019) connected on three of his six attempts from range and finished with 11 points, four rebounds and two assists and saw a season-high 30 minutes in the 86-74 win over Bryant.

Callan Low (Class of 2019) had a breakout game for Newberry, recording his first career game in double-figures scoring with 11 points in Saturday’s blowout win over Warren Wilson. The Wolves swept both games this week to improve to 3-1 on the season.

Eckerd College went 2-1 across its three games. Kiko Stavrev (Class of 2015) was instrumental in the Triton’s 97-90 win over Palm Beach on Saturday — The Bulgarian scored 13 points on an efficient 5-of-8 shooting, including a perfect 3-for-3 from three, to go with seven rebounds.

Winnipeg’s slide continued with two defeats in a home-and-home series with Manitoba, but the Wesmen came close to victory in a narrow 96-91 loss in overtime. Spas Nikolov (Class of 2017) posted a season-high 14 points and hit the game-tying layup at the buzzer to send it to the period.

Samuel Keita (Class of 2019) has missed the last four games for Casper College through injury and is being held out for prevention.
