Northern Colorado Bears

The Bears suffered an overtime loss in the hands of the Northern Iowa Panthers. It was commendable since their opponents were expected to win and they pushed them to the brink. Johan Radebough was phenomenal with 24 points, six rebounds, three assists and two steals in that game. Still, the Northern Colorado Bears will look at Bodie Hume to lead the team. But it would be interesting to see how Radebaugh and Hume can co-exist with their newfound strength together. Against the streak-hunting Mountaineers, they would need more firepower and Matt Johnson should be that guy along with Sam Masten. With odds against them, it should be a watch if the Bears can keep up with the Mountaineers.

Players to Watch: B. Hume (17.5 PPG, 4.5 RPG, 1 APG, 1.8 SPG), J. Radebaugh (12 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 5 APG, 2 SPG), M. Johnson (11.8 PPG, 2 RPG, 2.5 APG, 1.3 SPG).

West Virginia Mountaineers

West Virginia is on a roll and in their first two games, they are realizing how dangerous their team can be to opposing teams. Emmit Matthews had been consistent and is expected to be the leader of the team. He had 15 points per game but the real story for the Mountaineers is the development of Oscar Tshiebew. The big man was a monster with 20 points, 17 rebounds and three rebounds last game as he controlled the paint from both ends of the floor. No player in the Bears roster is expected to match up with him one-on-one and Tshiebew’s numbers will just be there.

Players to Watch: E. Matthews (15 PPG, 7.5 RPG), O. Tshiebew (12.6 PPG, 11 RPG), D. Culliver (10 PPG, .5 RPG, 2 APG).
