Seattle Key Players:
G- Alex Schumacher, Jr. 6’3, 185: 11.6 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 3.4 apg, 38.9% FG, 23.8% 3pt, 61.1% FT
Schumacher in his first yr with the Redhawks has been the de facto level guard, however he has struggled with turnovers as he has 17 assists and 13 steals. For a 6’3 guard although he’s an excellent rebounder however takes plenty of photographs for somebody who has been as inefficient as he has been.
G- Cameron Tyson, Jr. 6’3, 190: 28.3 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 0.3 apg, 50.0% FG, 51.4% 3pt, 58.8% FT
Every yr Seattle has a participant who places up ridiculous stats. It was Terrell Brown Jr. then there was Darion Trammell (now at San Diego State), and now Tyson has taken up the mantle. He missed each of their video games in opposition to non-D1 groups, however count on him to play tonight. The switch through Idaho then Houston is without doubt one of the finest 3-point shooters within the nation and is capturing over 50% on over 12 makes an attempt per sport from deep (!?!). If UW can hold monitor of Tyson within the zone and shut him down, then they need to win the sport.
G-Viktor Rajkovic, So. 6’6, 220: 5.0 ppg, 4.8 rpg, 1.6 apg, 42.1% FG, 25.0% 3pt, 77.8% FT
It did not occur fairly often that Rajkovic obtained concerned within the assault and when he did he often turned the ball over. He’s made lower than 10% of Seattle’s photographs whereas on the sphere, so he isn’t going to shoot it until he is vast open. He is a strong rebounder although so no less than he has that going for him.
F- Emeka Udenyi, Sr. 6’6, 225: 6.0 ppg, 5.4 rpg, 2.8 apg, 71.4% FG
We have not seen many photographs from Udenyi, however when he shoots, the ball usually goes within the basket. He hasn’t even hit a 3-pointer or a free throw but, however that is okay once you make 70%+ of your 2-pointers. He can also be a talented passer as he’s second in assists per sport on the crew and in addition their third main rebounder. Don’t count on an excessive amount of when it comes to rim safety, although, as he is on the lookout for his first block in opposition to D1 competitors.
C- Brandton Chatfield, So. 6’10, 225: 7.5 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 1.0 apg, 76.9% FG, 80.0% FT
Chatfield started his profession as a punter for Washington State, however has emerged because the Redhawks’ beginning middle. He’s been a dominant drive capturing the ball despite the fact that he is been used sparingly, making 10-of-13 three-pointers and 10-of-13 photographs inside. His blocked photographs, steals and offensive rebounding charges are additionally extraordinarily spectacular. We’ll see how he does with the scale of Kepnang and Meah although.
After an unbelievable upset of Saint Mary’s to win the Wooden Legacy Tournament, the Huskies definitely do not have the posh of stress-free a sport. Seattle U is undefeated to this point and even when they have not performed a really difficult schedule, they’re definitely a harmful opponent who’ve gained each sport by no less than 12 factors.
It has began on the offensive finish for Seattle to this point this yr and particularly with Cameron Tyson. The former Idaho and Houston switch has been dynamic averaging practically 30 factors per sport virtually totally on the again of his 3-point capturing. This has boosted the crew general as they’re capturing 41.7% from deep as a unit which is nice for twelfth within the nation. And primarily based on their above-average frequency it means they’re fifteenth in 3-point proportion. Washington has been superb this yr holding opponents to simply 25.9% capturing from past the arc this yr and they’ll want to proceed that to forestall an upset tonight.
On the defensive finish, Seattle’s energy has equally been conserving their opponents from capturing the ball. They have allowed opponents to make simply 26.6% of their 3-pointers, which is simply behind Washington’s mark. Whichever crew is in a position to escape and shoot proportion from deep could have the benefit.
The excellent news for a Husky crew with out a true level guard proper now’s that Seattle hasn’t been good at forcing turnovers. They are 351st in rebounding protection and in addition rank 295th or worse in block proportion and free throw proportion. Washington ought to give you the option to dominate inside with Meah and Kepnang in opposition to a roster that solely has 2 gamers taller than 6’6 and one taller than 6’10.
As with Cal Baptist, this can be a sorely missed sport. The Redhawks will bomb it from past the arc all night time and have the capturing expertise to make it a excessive proportion. If Seattle comes shut to their season common of 42%, then the Huskies most likely aren’t successful this sport. If as an alternative they’re ready to bother Seattle on the perimeter with their size and persistently hit the ball within the paint offensively, then issues will swing Washington’s manner.
Hopefully the expertise the Huskies obtained final week with Brooks built-in into the lineup gives a bit of extra chemistry and permits them to draw back late after staying very shut for the primary 32 or so minutes.
Washington Huskies– 72, Seattle Redhawks- 65
