Osun Osunniyi, 6-10 starting center. Averaged 7.5/7.5 last year, plus 2+ blocks. Had 8&9 against us last year off the bench. One less tall tree for them inside.
Definitely went young against Ohio: started a freshman, 3 sophomores, and a redshirt sophomore. My guess is they'll start Amadi Ikpeze at center now: 6-10 senior, played 25 mins off the bench against Ohio.
The Bonnies are preparing to not get beat by Anthony Lamb. If Vermont takes care of the ball, doesn't shoot too bad on the road and gets production from 4-5 guys, I think their experience will be enough.
Steph and Ben are battle tested. Becker has the rim protector he wanted.
EvD is a 5th year player who should step up. If Davis and Demuth are effective at this level of play, that will be great news.
I'll take the Cats by 5.
I just watched the ESPN replay of Ohio vs St. Bona. SB did not defend very well and they shot terrible from 3. Ohio was better at both of those things and that's what they won on. Those are also UVM strengths and I see a UVM win tonight by double figures.
I saw their last game against Ohio. Ohio was picked last in the MAC. SBU lost 3 of their 5 best players from last year and looked sloppy. Osunniyi is one of their 2 best players and will be out this game. Hold pg Lofton down a little and it should be a comfortable win.

I'm not a big NBA fan any longer, but this concept has me intrigued. They are bringing 22 teams (13 from the Western Conference, 9 from the East) and I am hearing they are going to quarantine them all while finishing the regular season and playoffs in one location. Each team will play only 8...
How does UVM President Dan Fogel stepping down effect UVM's plan for a new arena? In a recent article in the BFP Fogel was quoted.....
One main regret of his tenure-- adding that one last building to his legacy.
"I wish someday that we'll have that arena," Fogel said. "We're working on it...
