A little late but want to give a happy birthday shoutout to the big man, Bol Bol. He just turned 19 last Friday. Bol spent his birthday squeezing the Orange so we thank him for that.
After a 3rd place finish in the 2K Empire Classic in NYC, Oregon travels back home to Eugene to face Green Bay. The Phoenix, from the Horizon League, have a record of 3-2 so far in this early part of the season.
Wins - Wisconsin Lutheran, @ Eastern Washington, Morehead State
Losses - Indiana State, @ Iowa
Green Bay (3-2) @ #21 Oregon (3-1) (10:00 PM ET, PAC-12 Network) on Tuesday, November 20th
Green Bay KenPom Ranking: #206
- 87 Points Per Game
- 40.6 Rebounds Per Game
- 17 Assists Per Game
- 74.6 Points Allowed Per Game
Player to Watch For:
Sandy Cohen III, Senior - 13.6 PPG, 7.0 RPG, 6.0 APG, 1.4 BPG, 1.4 SPG
The 6’6 guard is a sort of renaissance man who leads his team in rebounds, assists, and steals. He plays a heavy amount of minutes with 31.6 MPG and shoots an efficient 49.1% from the field.
Score Prediction: 75-61, Ducks over Phoenix
The key to this one is to win the rebounding battle. Oregon has seemed to struggle in this category so far and needs to fix this before PAC-12 play starts against bigger opponents. I want to see a double-double out of both Bol and White on a consistent basis. I wouldn’t be opposed to Wooten crashing the glass a bit more too.
