WKU's Bassey heads list of top players from smaller leagues

  WKU's Bassey heads list of top players from smaller leagues Ja Morant provided an inspiration to all small-conference players when he earned All-America honors at Murray State last season and went to the Memphis Grizzlies with the second overall pick in the NBA Draft. There doesn't appear to be anyone of Morant's caliber in the mid-major and low-major ranks this season, but there remain plenty of productive performers and pro prospects from outside the largest conferences. Western Kentucky center Charles Bassey was having a productive freshman season last year while watching Morant rise to stardom about 100 miles away.

With his father — former UNLV and NBA guard Greg Anthony — in the stands, the Atlantic Coast Conference preseason freshman of the year broke Rashad McCants' 17-year-old scoring record by a freshman in his first game and finished 12 of 24 from the field with six 3-pointers.

BOX SCORE: NORTH CAROLINA 76, NOTRE DAME 65

Anthony scored 15 points during a 29-13 second-half run that put the Tar Heels in control.

Prentiss Hubb scored a career-high 22 points, T.J. Gibbs added 19 and John Mooney finished with 10 for the Fighting Irish. They led 37-32 just under 2 minutes into the second half.

That's when Anthony took over. He started the run with a runner, reeled off seven straight points for his team and hit three 3s in a 4-minute span, the last of which gave the Tar Heels their first double-figure lead at 61-50 with 9 minutes remaining.

BIG PICTURE

Notre Dame: The Fighting Irish had never opened a season with a conference game — in any of their conferences — and this was a tough ask, though they did more than simply play the foil in Anthony's debut. They built that second-half lead on Hubb's shooting but couldn't contain Anthony down the stretch.

North Carolina: Anthony certainly lived up to the hype, becoming the first UNC freshman with at least 30 points and 10 rebounds in a game since Tyler Hansbrough against Georgia Tech in 2006. He helped the Tar Heels reach a milestone — they earned their 700th ACC victory, the first program with that many wins in the conference.

Why UNC's Roy Williams was 'ticked off' after the Tar Heels' win over Gardner-Webb .
North Carolina coach Roy Williams had heard enough questions about the Tar Heels' game against Gardner-Webb. It was nearly midnight, his team had just won 77-61 at home, and Williams was annoyed. "Do I believe we're getting better? 'Yes,'" Williams said. "Am I ticked off right now? 'Yes.' Am I a scrooge probably this time close to Christmas? 'Yes.'"“Do I believe we’re getting better? ‘Yes,’” Williams said. “Am I ticked off right now? ‘Yes.’ Am I a scrooge probably this time close to Christmas? ‘Yes.’ But we’ve got to play better.
