Triple BBB - BRuWPEG BBall

New, comments

Week 2 of 10 for 3B (also known as BRuWPEG BasketBall) Not to late to get your picks in.

What does UB and Akron have in common?  Tough losses to Ohio.  Akron is coming off a 83-82 defeat at the hands of Ohio in comes to town da' Bulls.  The Bulls enter the contest riding a three game MAC win streak propelling the Bulls to talk of chances of winning the MAC East.  The chances to win back to back MAC East will have a much clearer picture at the end of Saturday night.

Akron & Buffalo enter the contest at virtually the same record, 15-7 (OK so UB should be 16-6 as compared to 15-6) but exact same in the MAC at 6-3.

Akron enters the contest averaging 69.38 points per game (119th) as compared to 74 ppg (44th).  Rebounds for Akron 35.8 (118th) for UB 38 (38th)  Assists Per Game: Akron 12.5 (184th) to UB 13.3 (133rd).  To me this is the biggest factor in this game, Field Goal Percentage:  Akron .423 (243rd) to UB .434 (186th)  On paper UB should win this game.  On paper UB should have blown out Ball State.  With playing on the road and I hope we do not ever see that referring crew again, this is going to be a very competitive game and goes a very long way to determine standing for the MAC tournament.

The good news for the rest of the season:  5 of the remaining 9 games are in Amherst where UB protects the house as good as anybody.

The bad news:  The remaining opponents have a near 70% win percentage overall (102-48) and in conference win percentage of 60% (38-25)  You have to love how competitive the MAC is.

Not to late to join BRuWPEG if you missed Ball State.  One good week and you can be a leader.
