I sort of thought I had this Bronco team figured out after their near-miss against Oregon and beatdown of SMU...then they went and lost to Evansville of the Missouri Valley Conference. Now as the Broncos (4-4) get set to play Loyola-Marymount (2-2), who knows what to expect? One thing I'd say it's safe to expect is another big game from Chandler Hutchison, who is averaging 17.5 points/game and nearly 9 rebounds per contest. Also safe? The Broncos are going to launch a lot of three balls. When those three balls are on target, the Broncos are eminently tougher to beat...when they aren't...things can get ugly. On the Lions bench, be on the lookout for Brandon Brown and Buay Tuach, who are both averaging 12.3 ppg and lead the team in minutes. The Broncos are still trying to find themselves, so hopefully tonight isn't a 2 steps forward, 3 steps back affair.
How to watch
Loyola-Marymount is favored by 2...coincidentally, the same amount that a field goal is worth in basketball. How about that?
