Tetons vs Bucs Men’s Basketball Pregame Primer
The Third game of the Teton-Bucs series will tip off at 8:30 pm CST.
The men's teams for the Tetons and Buccaneers have already met twice this season, once in both of them coming down in Glendive. Both games were saw the Tetons routed by the very deep Dawson team.
The Bucs are scoring 84.4 points per game on the season, while shooting 43.9% from the field and 35% from deep.
Joe Mpoyo leads the team in scoring with 16.3 points per game with Damon Gros Ventre (14 ppg) also averaging double digits.
Williston State comes into the season with a 5-19 record overall in the season and 3-14 in the Mon-Dak Conference. The Tetons are averaging 63.9 points per game this season while shooting 38.8% from the field and 28.1% from the perimeter.
The Tetons are led in scoring by Shaheed Muhammad with 17.7 points per game, with Abiodun Adedo (15.2 ppg) also scoring in double figures.
Three Things to Watch for:
1. Getting Healthy: Last week's win loss the Pioneers came without both Shaheed Muhammad and Grady Gonsioroski on the court and the absence of two key pieces was certainly felt. Should both be healthy and able to play tonight, Dawson will be in store for the best Teton team to hit the floor yet this year.
2. Controlling The Paint: Adedo and Moses Gordon have been defensive stalwarts on the defensive end over the last month. Both big men have to log big minutes and come up with even bigger plays on the defensive end.
3. Line Changes: Dawson has the depth and the talent to go five on and five off throughout the game with situational subbing sprinkled in. With a short Teton bench, they will need to stay locked in for all 40 minutes, especially in their matchup 2-3 zone.
