The Wyoming Cowboys and Furman Paladins face off on Sunday in a college basketball showdown at the HTC Center.
Wyoming Looks for Another Big Win
Wyoming comes into this game with a 3-1 record overall and they sure looked good on Friday. Wyoming faced off against the College of Charleston and the offense scored only 67 points, but the defense stepped up giving up only 60 points. Sam Griffin was the top player for Wyoming putting up 24 points. Wyoming wants to push the pace and so far this season they are averaging 80 points while their defense is giving up 65.3 points per game. In this game, Wyoming is going to try and push the pace here with the offense.
Furman Offense Rolled on Friday
Furman sits with a 3-1 record and in the three wins the offense has been dominant. On Friday Furmna’s offense put up 89 points on the way to the nine-point victory. Guard Marcus Foster has been the top player for Furman putting up 30 points, five rebounds, and three assists. Furman on the season is averaging 86.5 points while their defense is giving up 78 points per game. The offense is ranked 49th in the league while the defense is ranked 303rd. In this game I would expect Furman is going to try and push the pace here.
Shane’s Free Pick
Furman has run up the score with ease this season and even in the loss they scored 74 points. They are going to push the pace here with the offense, but their defense is also going to be an issue. Wyoming is averaging 80 points per game and they are going to go over that number here also. The lack of defense by both teams is going to be the difference as this game is going to go over the total.
