David Riley vs Wes Miller
The Eastern Washington Eagles have had an underwhelming start to the 2023 season, still searching for their inaugural victory. While their offense has encountered its share of challenges – managing just 65 points per game on 40.3% shooting from the floor. But defensively they have struggled terribly; surrendering an alarming 88 points per contest in just two games alone! It is an area of immediate concern and must be addressed quickly if they hope to turn things around this season.
Cedric Coward and Dan Erikstrup are leading Eastern Washington in scoring, averaging 12.5 points each per game. LeJuan Watts has also been an effective contributor, scoring 10.5 points while leading his team with 7.5 rebounds per game and leading them with 7.5 rebounds per game overall. Ellis Magnuson contributes just one point per game but makes up for it by dishing out 3.5 assists per game – helping the Eagles strengthen their defense and break into winning territory.
Cincinnati’s Strong Start
On the flip side, the Cincinnati Bearcats have proven themselves a formidable opponent early in this season. Going unbeaten through two games and riding high on a 32-point win against Detroit Mercy, Cincinnati proved their worth as a defensive powerhouse limiting opponents to just 61 points on 37.5% shooting while forcing 15 turnovers; offensively they scored an impressive 93 points – most coming in just the first half itself!
Cincinnati Bearcats’ star player has been Day Day Thomas, averaging 13 points per game and leading their offense with CJ Fredrick (12.5 PPG), and Dan Skillings Jr. (12 PPG, 8 RBP per contest). Simas Lukosius has also been an invaluable playmaker averaging 7.5 points while also leading with 3.5 assists per game; all this augurs well for continued success on both ends of the court.
Prediction and Analysis
Eastern Washington faces the Cincinnati Bearcats with all odds stacked against them. Cincinnati’s impressive start, both defensively and offensively, shows they’ve found their rhythm early this season. Their ability to control pace, limit opponents scoring opportunities, and capitalize on offensive possessions makes them strong contenders in this matchup.
