Buckle up, It’s go time for the BIG 12.
On Paper, Cinn is just the kind of team that can cause headaches for BYU
1 Ther two best players go 7’ and 6’11
#30 Victor Lankin will work you inside or take a shot anywhere on the floor and shoots plenty of 3s.
match up nightmare for us
Both guys are poor FT, 50 to 60%
2 Cinn plays a lot of guys, much like BYU, so don’t count on them gassing out like so many teams BYU faces. There will be no blow out I’m guessin.
3 Cinn takes plenty of 3s, they have 2 players that shoot over 45%, Frederick is a 3 point specialist (closest thing to Knell) . 6’8 Lukosious not only shoots the 3 well but he will take any shot anywhere.
4 Cinn is the best assist team we have faced to date. That makes them dangerous.
They are really good at a lot of things, play plenty of guys, have size but the one thing that stands out…
5 They have not played well in road games. little Ol Howard U took them to OT and Xavier beat them
47 ranked Dayton killed them on a neutral court
6 on Defense, Cinn will have trouble with Khalifa taking them outside, They have not faced a passing center, opens the middle for easy lay ups. Hall should have a good game on high pic and rolls.
7 BYU on D will have to worry about Cinn shooting 3s, 35% of their shots are 3balls. BYU also has to worry about their ability to assist, Cinn is #37 in the NET, they do a lot of things well.
8 Can Cinn beat BYU, they all the pieces to be a top 25 team but they have not played well on the road… at the Marriott, at 8pm on ESPN2
I will say BYU gets to 80 and it only takes 75 to win.
