The Weber State Wildcats take the floor with the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles in Monday action.
The Oral Roberts Golden Eagles are picked as one the top teams in the Summit League but they have yet to establish any kind of consistency in the early stages of the season. The Golden Eagles are looking for better production at both ends of the floor as both weren't at their best in a 69-66 decision over Milwaukee on Wednesday. The Panthers were the better shooting team at 48% with Weber hitting at 40.7% however the decisive edge came at the line where Oral Roberts held a 21-12 advantage. Obi Emegano tossed in a team high 20 points and snagged six boards on 7-13 shooting while Korey Billbury added 19 points, eleven rebounds and six assists with Brandon Conley and Bobby Ward contributing eight points apiece.

The Weber State Wildcats have struggle to sore the basketball which has played a role in their uneven start. The Wildcats continued to have problems putting the ball in the basket in 59-56 victory over Nevada although the defensive end of the floor picked up the slack. The Wolf Pack were held to 35.7% from the field and gave the ball away 16 times while Weber State countered with 40% which was good enough with a 6-2 edge on three pointers being the main difference. Jeremy Senglin tossed in a contest best 16 points with Joel Bolomboy tossing in 13 points and snagging eight rebounds while Chris Golden and Kyndahl Hill chipped in with ten and seven points respectively.
The under is 22-7 in ORU last 29 non-conference games and the over is 11-5 in ORU last 16 road games. For Weber State the over is 8-1 in Wildcats last 9 home games and is 15-3 in Weber State's last 18 overall while the over is 6-2 in the Wildcats last 8 Mon. games. I think both teams need to be more consistent but the fact of the matter is the season is young and I believe both will get better. The Wildcats have blowout potential but I'll take a stab with the points for now...
