PRESTON, England – Edoardo Del Cadia‘s trip with UNLV to the Maui Invitational, hosted in Asheville, N.C. due to COVID-19, headlines a week of basketball for Myerscough alum. The Running Rebels will match up on Monday night against six-time National Championships and no. 14 ranked North Carolina at the Harrah’s Cherokee Center, with tip scheduled for 7 p.m. local (12 a.m. GMT).

Del Cadia saw limited action last Wednesday in UNLV’s 91-78 loss to Montana State. Alongside the Running Rebels and the Tar Heels, the 2020 Maui Invitational is being attended by No. 17 Texas, Stanford, Davidson, Indiana and Providence.

Former Myerscough teammates Mate Okros and Amari Williams reunited at Drexel for their first competitive minutes together since the 2019 EYBL SuperFinal. Okros, who started every game as a freshman, made his 34th straight start for the Dragons playing 34 minutes. Williams, meanwhile, came off the bench for his collegiate debut and saw six minutes of game time.

Drexel will travel to Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. for a pair of games against Quinnipiac with the first at 7:30 p.m. local time (12:30 a.m. GMT). The Dragons — coming off a hard fought 83-74 defeat to Pitt to start the year — will close out Week 2 versus Coppin State at the Daskalakis Athletic Center on Sunday, Dec. 6.

Callan Low saw both of Newberry College’s games last week postponed due to COVID-19 protocols, but the Wolves hit the court on Wednesday for a tilt against Carson-Newman University. Milly Knowles and Eastern Washington, who saw a similar fate to start their season, face the visiting Northern Arizona twice in the span of two days with the first on Thursday, Dec. 3.
