PREVIEW

WHAT TO EXPECT | Eh . . . this is a rough team. Wins have come against Washington Adventist, Philadelphia Biblical, Maryland Eastern Shore and Maine. That's not to say that Delaware St. hasn't played any tough opponents as they've also taken on Maryland, La Salle, South Carolina, Pittsburgh, North Carolina St. and Clemson. The Hornets actually played a very tight game with NC State and only lost by 2, but for the most part, this is a team that struggles against top 60-ish teams.

KEY MATCHUPS | If my research is correct, Delaware St. will be starting a 6-3/255 forward. I don't know what to say about that, and I'm hoping that this will lead to a hugh rebounding edge. Honestly, I'm not sure how this will workout, but I'd love to see Singletary take on Stowe and either take him off he wing or just get fouled as he tries to take him off the block. Tairu is a better shooting guard than a point guard, but he's holding his own offensively and that's the key for him. You'd like to think that with Delaware St. having such a small lineup, guys like Cooper and PF Robert Lewandowski will have field-days against the Hornets. It would make me happy to see each of these guys get 10 to 15 points tonight.

FOUR FACTORS | Statistically, TAMU-CC is a better team, but they've also played vastly inferior opponents.
