Florida Gators vs Saint Joseph’s Hawks 11/21/2019
It has been a literal up-and-down season so far for the Florida Gators. They are coming off a loss against the UConn Huskies by just three points. Andrew Nembhard had a difficult time putting the ball to the hoop with missing 10 out of his 14 shots. Kelly Blackshear Jr. was his usual self with 15 points and eight rebounds. Nembhard was a strong revelation that even he missed ten shots, he was able to dish out seven assists and grabbed five boards. It will be exciting for the Gators if Nembhard could find his game along with Blackshear and other starters, Keyontae Johnson and Scottie Lewis to avoid back-to-back losses.
Players to Watch: K. Blackshear Jr. (14.5 PPG, 11 RPG, 1.5 APG, 1.3 SPG), K. Johnson (10.5 PPG, 5.5 RPG, 1.3 APG), S. Lewis (9 PPG, 2.8 RPG, 1.3 BPG).
Saint Joseph’s Hawks
Like the Gators, their win-loss pattern is the same and they are also coming in from a loss. Ryan Daly had a subpar scoring night against the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers but he made up with his rebounding and assists. Taylor Funk was the surprise of that game stepping up with 15 points missing only 2 of his 7 shots. They are the favorites to win this game against the Gators but They would need Lorenzo Edwards and Cameron Brown stepping up and spacing the floor for Daly to operate. The depth of this team will be their best strength as the Gators will have Rahmir Moore to worry about as well.
Players to Watch: R. Daly (19.3 PPG, 9 RPG, 6 APG, 1.3 SPG). L. Edwards (12.3 PPG, 6.3 RPG, 1.8 APG, 1.3 BPG), R. Moore (12.3 PPG, 2 RPG, 1.3 SPG)
