Yale Takes Out Colgate
The Yale Bulldogs come into this one looking to build on their 68-50 win over Colgate last time out. Going Into Friday, Bez Mbeng leads the Bulldogs in scoring and assists with 16.7 PPG and 3 APG along with 1.7 SPG while John Poulakidas has 13.3 PPG and Matt Knowling has 10.7 PPG with 5 RPG to cap off the trio of double-digit scorers for Yale up to this point in the year. August Mahoney has 9 PPG and 3 RPG and Nick Townsend’s got 8.7 PPG with 5 RPG while Danny Wolf has a team-high 7.7 RPG to lead Yale on the glass up to this point in the year. As a team, Yale is averaging 85.3 PPG on 51.4% shooting from the field, 42.9% from three and 81.5% from the foul line this season.
Weber State Edged Out By Gardner-Webb
The Weber State Wildcats come into this one looking to rebound from a 62-61 loss to Gardner-Webb in their last game. Entering Friday’s matchup, Dillon Jones leads the Wildcats in scoring and rebounding, averaging 27.5 PPG and 12 RPG, putting up a monstrous double-double per game, while Steven Verplancken and Blaise Threatt each have 12 PPG with Threatt logging a team-high 3 APG to lead the Wildcats in the assist department. Alex Tew also has 10 PPG with 4 RPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Weber State. As a team, Weber State is averaging 78.5 PPG on 45.7% shooting from the field, 30.6% from three and 85.7% from the foul line this season.
I’m leaning towards Yale here. The Bulldogs for my money are just the more consistent team offensively in this game and they’re the better team in terms of defensive efficiency up to this point. The way Weber State likes to attack is getting to the foul line and Yale is really well disciplined and doesn’t give up many opportunities like that. All in all, I have to roll with Yale to get it done here.
