We’ll call these the random lottery selections. There’s no rhyme or reason, it’s just the matchups that caught our eye this week. As we mentioned earlier, 905 is undefeated and our guy Devin Cannady is signed to Lakeland. The Austin Spurs are calling their matchup against Oklahoma “The Dream Game,” so that means something special is on the way.

South Bay’s matchup against Salt Lake City is actually their season opener, which is just another indicator of how crazy this year has been. And finally, we selected Westchester and Oklahoma as both teams are looking to turn their season around. This game could be the turning point for whoever wins.

That’s going to wrap out G-League coverage for this week. As usual, we’ll be back next week with more updates.
