I believe 7 of their top 9 scorers return from the team that beat us in the NIT Finals last year. They beat NIT Final Four participant Colorado yesterday 67-58.
ESPN Preview of game.
I hope we can defend their 7 footer in the paint... or at least keep him off the boards.
Prediction: I'm going to be consistent with my preseason predictions... I think the Shockers shock us with some premium 3 point shooting and win by 6. The key to this game is keeping JaMychal out of foul trouble... something I don't think he can do with regularity,
Gametime is 9PM EST (8PM CST) on ESPN2
