Ohio Bobcats

The Ohio Bobcats are on a roll disposing their opponents one-by-one from Heidelberg, Iona Gaels and St. Bonaventure Bonnies. In their last game, Jason Preston looks like he is getting more comfortable with the team as he contributed across the board with 27 points, 14 rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block. Lunden McDay was impressive with 13 points, a steal and a block. Ben Vander Plas and Jordan Dartis will surely come out and help out Preston as they were the most consistent contributors for the Bobcats. It would be intriguing how McDay will follow up after having a good offensive night against the Wildcats since they would be needing the depth contribution to keep this game close.

Players to Watch:  J. Preston (18 PPG, 9 RPG, 9.7 APG, 3 SPG), B. Vander Plas (14 PPG, 5 RPG, 3 APG, 1.7 SPG), J. Dartis (13.7 PPG, 2.3 RPG, 2 APG, 1.7 SPG).

Villanova Wildcats

It looks like the Villanova Wildcats will ride on Jeremiah Robinson-Earl to dictate the team’s direction. Robinson-Earl had a monster game against Army Black Knights with 24 points and 13 rebounds but he failed to replicate that in their next game. Resulting in a loss against Ohio State Buckeyes, he just did 8 points and six rebounds. Like Robinson-Earl, Cole Swider and Saddiq Bey had a hard time replicating his first day performance. It was only Jermaine Samuels that did well with 14 points while Collin Gillespie had a fair 10 points. With the loss, it does not define how strong this team is and expect them to pick it up against the Ohio Bobcats.

Players to Watch: J. Robinson-Earl (16 PPG, 9.5 RPG, 1 APG), C. Swider (14.5 PPG, 5 RPG, 1.4 APG), S. Bey (12 PPG, 5 RPG, 1.5 APG, 1 SPG).
