Team CP3 is organized by Chris Paul and includes players that were included in the CP3 grassroots program. The coach of the team is Chris Paul, but it’s hard to know if he will actually be closing the team in person.
Nate Mason is one of the stars of this team. Mason played his college ball at the University of Minnesota, averaging 16.7 points per game during the 2017-18 season. Codi Miller-Mcintyre, David Weaver, and CJ Harris played their college ball at Wake Forest. Harris is a veteran who averaged 15.4 points per game during his senior year in 2012-13.
One place this team might have issues is with their center position. James Dickey is the best center for the team and he averaged 8.7 points per game his late-season at UNC Greensboro.
On the other side of this matchup is Mid-American Unity who is mostly made up of players who played in the MAC Conference
Luke Knapke played for the Toledo Rockets this last season averaging 15.8 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. He is a player who can also step out and hit the three-ball. Josh Williams started off his career with Akron and transferred to Robert Morris for his last two years. During the 2019-20 season, Williams averaged 13.6 points and 2.6 assists. Carlos Medlock is one of the veterans of the team playing for Eastern Michigan as a senior in 2009-10. Medlock played 32 games that season putting up 16.9 points and 3.8 assists per game.
On paper, this is a pretty even matchup, but there is one area that Team CP3 is going to struggle, their center play. Knape is going to be able to have a big game, and that will be the difference as Mid-American Unity will run away with a win and cover the spread. This game really isn't going to be all that close.
