Ahmed Hill, Christian Nobles, and Kwajelin Farrar headline this college hoops update

Saturday's college hoops schedule includes at least three games featuring Augusta raised players who are earning notoriety for their contributions on the court:

USC Aiken (featuring Christian Nobles, Richmond) @ Florida Southern - 3:30 - Link to watch

Virginia Tech (featuring Ahmed Hill, Aquinas) vs Nebraska - 4:30 - on ESPN3

Charleston Southern (featuring Christian Keeling, Laney) vs Toccoa Falls - 7:30 - Link to watch

(Here's a link to a recent post about Keeling, which follows his red hot start to his freshman season)

Hill's 6 threes weren't enough for Hokies to top Texas A&M

Ahmed Hill continued a scorching hot shooting start to his sophomore season Friday by making 6 of 11 threes, scoring all 18 of his points from deep, in a 68-65 loss to Texas A&M in the semifinals of the Wooden Legacy tournament in Fullerton, California. The Hokies play Nebraska at 4:30 today in the third place game.

Hill has made 19 of 39 three pointers this season, and he is averaging 15.2 points per game.

Nobles scores 18 as Aiken tops Paine

Richmond Academy graduate Christian Nobles scored 18 points Wednesday in USC Aiken's 75-71 home win over Paine. Nobles, a senior, is averaging 19 points per game during the Pacers' 3-0 start.

Aiken plays today at 3:30 at Florida Southern. The next great time to see the Pacers is Wednesday's double-header at home when the men host Anderson College at 7:30, right after the Lady Pacers take on Johnson C. Smith.

Kwajelin Farrar has made an immediate impact

Farrar was 6-6 in Aiken's win over Shaw.
Speaking of the Lady Pacers, Kwajelin Farrar, a freshman who starred at Grovetown, is off to a
fast start for USC Aiken. The 6'1" forward is second on the team in scoring (9.4 ppg), she leads in rebounding (6.6), and she is making a remarkable 74% of her field goals, while playing only 20 minutes per game.

More college hoops notes about area players

California University sophomore Don Coleman, who is Butler High's all time scoring leader, has played significant minutes during the Bears' 3-1 start. Coleman's most productive game came last week against San Diego State when he scored 7 points in 17 minutes in a 77-65 loss.

Frank Booker (Westside) and Jailyn Ingram (Morgan County) took turns leading Florida Atlantic in scoring in the Owls' recent wins. After an 0-3 start, FAU got in the win column with a 98-64 win over Edward Waters. Booker scored 18 points in the win.

Ingram followed with a 16 point, 8 rebound outing in Florida Atlantic's 78-62 win over South Florida.
