They come in at 4-4 playing the Gators close in their opening game and getting blown out by Ohio State in their previous one. They actually have a game tonight (vs Edward Waters) so maybe we can catch them worn down.
EDIT- North Florida throttled Edward Waters 90-68. I am officially worried now. Or maybe not.
Travis Wallace leads the team in points and board per game (12.5/7.4). He is an undersized forward I think we can handle quite easily inside.
Dallas Moore is hitting 48% from 3 and is their 2nd leading scorer. He shoots he ball better from beyond the arc than inside it. He has put up almost 15 a game the last 3.
Beau Beech is another one averaging double digits scoring and also is better beyond the arc (.395) than inside it (.394). He is a 6'8" guard that so far chucks up the most 3s on the team.
Charles McRoy and Chris Davenport round out the starting five. Davenport could be a slight issue inside and on the boards.
- 74.1 PPG
- .720 FT
- +3.5 rebound margin
- 15.6 turnovers a game
This is a good opponent for us after the disappointing showing in MSG. Get Jacobs started inside (and keep him interested in the game) then let Relly and Retin take over with the dribble drive. I would like to see Cooper and Randolph work on some mid-range shots if the game is out of reach as they both need the confidence.
Game time is 8PM EST (7 CST) 12/4 on CSS I think.
