Miami Madness took place on April 1st at Miami University. The day was filled with intense competition, showcasing the skills and sportsmanship of the participating teams: Ohio University, Miami University, Ohio State University, and the University of Illinois Urban-Champaign (UIUC). The following are the results and a rundown from Kevin Skiba (UC) who was there to see all the teams in action.
The OG Bearcat. The NCDA Slim Reaper. Brett Liming has been putting on a show and half this year and is a huge part of Cincinnati’s success this year. In their right corner Brett has done it all. He’s known for being a fierce weapon on offense, whether on the front line or in transition; but is highly underrated in his ability to catch and survive in clutch situations. Whether racking up kills in transition, picking opponents off on the cross, or snagging a catch out of a team throw, Brett is a major threat to anyone he faces. I would even go so far as to say he’s the most complete player in the league right now. Don’t take your eyes off the Slim Reaper.
