#25 Anderson (4-0) at Oklahoma Panhandle State (2-2): What a difference a season (or two) makes. Anderson lost 71 straight games over the course of three seasons. bscollier guided them to a 10-17 record last season and now has a perfect 4-0 mark on the young season. Anderson's high octane fastbreak/press attack is led by SF Rogelio Vasquez and his 19.8 ppg. PG Cory Hodgins (11.0 ppg) and SF Anthony Kuehner (10.5 ppg) provide punch off the bench. Anderson is 2nd in D-II Iba with 91.8 ppg.
khook19's motion/zone set offers backcourt scoring aplenty. SG's Brandon Berry and Paul Knox with PG Lewis Arocho combine for 32.8 ppg. OkPan puts 9 underclassmen on the floor and has a tall order in undefeated Anderson.
Oddmakers are believers in undefeated Anderson, installing them as the 20 point favorite.
Montevallo (2-2) at Barton (2-2): After dropping the first two games of the season, srook and Montevallo have righted the ship and won their last two. Three SRs key the offensive for the Mont: Timothy Henderson, Charles Goodwin, and Roger Battle.
jtmatt's squad is also led by a talented trio: Joel Greene, Jesse Street, and Andy Fournier.
This one should be a good matchup. Oddsmakers like Montevallo by 4.
Young Oklahoma Panhandle State rode an emotional home crowd and a 3-2 zone throughout a competivie first half and only trailed by 4 at the break. Bscollier became just collier in the second half, because they dropped the bs and pulled away for a comfortable 16 point win.
C Mario Esquer was player of the game for Anderson with 11 points and 14 boards. Cory Hodgins and John Dix each added 12 off the bench. Lewis Arocho had 11 for OKPan, which went a not OK 17-of-32 from the free throw line.
Barton 84, Montevallo 71:
Montevallo jumped all over Barton during the first ten minutes, building a 20-4 lead on the strength of ridiculous defense. Montevallo then learned that Jesse Street is a bad part of town at Barton. Mr Street got loose for 22 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists, and 5 steals. Barton blew up for 57 points in the second half.
Mr Street was player of the game and led all scorers with his 22. C Andy Fournier chipped in 10 off the bench for Barton. Roger Battle and Timothy Henderson tossed in 16 and 12 for the Mont, but it wasn't enough against a Barton team that generated 16 steals.
In what should be a surprise to no-one that follows the Challenge, the CVAC jumps out to a 2-0 lead.
