Bracket Buster Preview: You Don't Know Jacks!

UB has one chance to right their ship before diving back into conference play, that chance is this Saturday when the Bulls travel to South Dakota to take on the Jack Rabbits of South Dakota State University.

The South Dakota State Jackrabbits Men's Basketball is one of the newer members of the Summit League. They joined the conference, and Division one 2007-08. Coached by Scott Nagy the Rabbits are sporting an RPI of 67, and stand at second in the summit league, two and a half games back of Oral Roberts.

The Jack Rabbits have little in the way of depth but it only takes one man, Nate Wolters, to provide them with a deadly attack. His 22 points per game highlights an offense that is dropping more than 75 points in every contest.

"He's hard to stay in front of and he's very good on the break. The one weakness he has is that he hasn't shot the ball great from the outside. But…when he does he's impossible to stay in front of." Coach Scott Nagy

The Bulls, if they go with the zone, will rely on the front to make Wolters try to play outside. With just on big on their roster UB may be able to continue their dominance of the boards.
