The Bruins were humiliated by the Oregon Ducks in their last game by losing by 21 points. Jake Kyman stepped in when the starters are having a hard time with 20 points and four triples. Jalen Hill had 16 points, eight rebounds and two steals while Jaime Jaquez Jr. did 10 points, five assists and three rebounds. It was an off night for the team’s most reliable scorer with Chris Smith shooting 2-of-7 from the field to finish with a lowly 7 points. Against the Buffaloes, Smith’s game has to be at its best for them to protect the home court. This team must also find a way to control the possessions on the offensive end as they did a very high 20 turnovers in their last game.
