The Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders are penciled in as a challenger in the top heavy CUSA with good reason as the majority of the team’s production returns from last season. The Blue Raiders head to the Great Alaska Shootout at 1-1 after squeezing by Tennessee State 69-66. Both teams sank shots in the 41% range with MTSU totaling eight more shots which turned in to four more field goals in a one possession contest. Giddy Potts led the Blue Raiders attack with 21 points and seven pulls with Darnell Harris adding 16 points and six yanks. Quavius Copeland was next in line with 15 points but the rest of the team managed just 17 points.
Obviously Middle Tennessee State is the better team that pals a much tougher schedule. I don’t think Alaska Anchorage is trash because I believe some of their roster could play at a higher level. We will see soon enough…
