Missouri State Bears
Missouri State Bears suffered a 3-point loss against Xavier. It seemed that the Bears have a hard time closing out games as it also happened against Little Rock Trojans during their opening game where they lost by one point. In other games against Alabama State Hornets and Cleveland State Vikings, they had a good lead early on and en route to the victory. Looking at their losses, Keandre Cook was below his usual self. Against Xavier, he only had 13 points and four rebounds. Tulio Da Silva was underwhelming with only four points and four rebounds. But the positive note was Tyrik Dizon who stepped up with 12 points, six rebounds and two assists. Against the Hurricanes, they need to have Cook and Lamont West leading the way and try to jump to an early start since they need to still learn how to close tight games.
Players to Watch: K. Cook (17.8 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 1 SPG), L.West (10.8 PPG, 2.3 RPG, 1 APG), T. Da Silva (8.3 PPG, 8 RPG, 1 APG).
Miami has been on a good groove winning against Quinnipiac Bobcats, Central Florida Knights and Florida Atlantic Owls. In all of their wins, their closest winning margin was 9 points and the largest was 28. The Hurricanes are on a roll with Kameron McGusty looking like a good NBA prospect in the early going. In their last game, he had 22 points, three rebounds and three assists. Chis Lykes and Dejan Vasijevic are consistent players that back up McGusty and they combined for 25 points in their previous match. The three players are the core that Missouri State needs to prevent from gaining a good start.
Players to Watch: K. McGusty (14.8 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 2 APG, 1 SPG), C. Lykes (14 PPG, 2.3 RPG, 2.8 APG, 1.5 SPG), D. Vasiljevic (13.3 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 2.3 APG).
