VMI Keydets vs UC Davis Aggies 11/17/2019
The VMI Keydets are struggling to find their identity at the same time securing a win. They had two good chances but failed to close out the games against Idaho Vandals and Presbyterian Blue Hose.

In their last game, he had 20 points, six rebounds and four assists. In the season, he has averaged 11.8 points, 7 rebounds and 1.5 steals. Heading to this match against the UC Davis Aggies, they need Geg Parham to be more consistent as he is the second top scorer of the team and he was held to just two points in 25 minutes last game. Myles Lewis will need to step up his game as well in order for them to secure their first win of the season.

UC Davis Aggies
So far, it has been an up-and-down start for the UC Davis Aggies. They lost their first game, won their next two then lost their last. They now have a 2-2 record and will look to regroup and go back to the winning column. Joe Mooney has been carrying the team behind his back. In their last match, he had 21 points, five rebounds and three assists. In this tournament, he has been averaging 16 points, 3.7 rebounds and 2.3 steals. But their best games are when he gets support from teammates namely from Matt Neufeld and Ezra Manjon. The previous game showed that Caleb Fuller looks to be a solid contributor as well with 10 points in 25 minutes. Helping Mooney will be the key for UC to prevail over the VMI Keydets.
Players to Watch: J. Mooney (16 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 2.3 APG, 2.3 SPG), M. Neufeld (12.5 PPG, 12 RPG, 2.3 APG, 2.3 SPG, 1.3 BPG), E. Manjon (12 PPG, 1.7 RPG, 2.7 APG, 2 SPG).
