The Bulls, 2-5, are on the road as they take on the Delaware Blue Hens, who enter the game at 3-2 (game begins at 7 PM). USF won its last game over Savannah State and will be looking to make it two in a row.
USF is averaging 65.7 PPG (allowing 70.7 PPG) and 40.9 RPG (allowing 37.9 RPG). The Blue Hens are averaging 66.4 PPG (allowing 67.2 PPG) and averaging 41.3 RPG (allow 33.8 RPG). This could be a very close game that is won in the paint by either side.
Delaware is led by junior guard Cazmon Hayes (6’4″ 195 lbs.) who is averaging 13.5 PPG (8 for 35 from 3-point range), 7 RPG, and has 5 steals on the season. He is a long guard that will be matched up most likely against Nehemias Morillo who will have the length to defend him on the perimeter. Senior forward Marvin King-Davis (6’7″ 230 lbs.) is averaging 13.4 PPG, 8.6 RPG, and has 5 blocks along with 3 steals on the season. He will be one of their big bodies that will be battling Chris Perry and company down in the paint for the entire game. Rounding out their top scorers is sophomore guard Kory Holden (6’2″ 180 lbs.) who is averaging 12 PPG, 2.4 RPG, leads the team with 28 assists (12 turnovers), and has 2 blocks along with 2 steals. He runs their offense and will be a match-up to watch with Roddy Peters or Jahmal McMurray opposing him.
The Bulls looked stronger in their win over Savannah State, taking care of the basketball and winning the rebounding battle. If they want to get the road victory (Vegas odds have Delaware as 4 point favorites as of Wednesday afternoon), they need to continue that trend and not rely on the three-ball, something that has doomed them in the past. If they can do that, they will stay competitive in this game and could pull off the upset.
