Bulls 71, Phoenix 65 at Wisconsin-Green Bay
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Rahmon Fletcher (Senior guard No. 20) - The senior is Green Bay's leading scorer on the season with over 17 points a game. He has been a consistent scorer his entire collegiate career; he has averaged over 10 points per game over all four seasons. He's an efficient scorer as well, shooting 49 percent on field goals and 87 percent from the free-throw line this season.
Bryquis Perine (Senior guard No. 0) - The senior had a breakout season last year as he increased his scoring average by 10 points. This season he is averaging 13 points per game, but he has more turnovers than assists. Perine will have trouble against Buffalo's tough defense.
The Bulls will win if… They don't make too many mistakes. The Bulls have played their best ball in Alumni Arena this season and haven't scored less than 80 points in any of their three games there. It's the last game before break, so there should be a very good turnout, making life difficult on the visitors.
The Bulls will come out of the gates fast and will take an early lead that will be too much for the Phoenix to overcome. Their defense has been tough on opponents and will wear Green Bay down as the game goes on.
Green Bay doesn't have enough scoring to match the Bulls, and it will show as Buffalo stifles its opponent. Look for another high-scoring, double-digit win for the good guys.
