That’s not so much a slight as it is the fact that it’s really, really hard to pick just one player that makes this team go.

It is not unusual for Division II college basketball teams to step up in exhibition games and take on Division I programs. The local scene has seen several area squads do just that over the last week, on both the men’s and women’s side.
