Oakland quick hitters

Oakland senior Erik Kangas has been invited to participate in the College 3-Point Contest on April 2 at the Palace of Auburn Hills. Kangas is fourth in the country with 127 3-pointers this season, an average of 3.8 3-pointers per game. Kangas is also in the top-25 in the nation in 3-point field goal percentage at 41.9 percent. Kangas is Oakland's all-time leader in 3-pointers and holds the school and Summit League single-season record for 3-pointers.

The Golden Grizzlies (22-12) have likely not played their last game after falling to North Dakota State in the Summit League championship game. Oakland has a good shot at hosting a game in the 2009 tournament. The 16-team tournament begins on Tuesday, March 17.

hosting a game would be the most ideal thing for OU, which would allow them to play more and not have to pay the large amount of money to travel again. I hope we get in!

You really think Oakland has a good chance of actually hosting a tourny game?! That would be kinda cool!
