15.Dec.2011 Basketball: Howard @ Oregon State
I’m on the road, so I don’t have the time to do a comprehensive write-up for Howard. The key points for them are that they are young, fairly active on defense, and they have about 20% focus in any given game… meaning they will find about seven or eight minutes where they will click and make a run.
Fortunately for the Beavs this run will not mitigate the other 80% of the game. Howard will miss a lot of shots, and they will lose the handle a lot. It may not be pretty.
The long and the short of it? The Beavs should win pretty handily.
Beavs 86 – Bison 64
There was a time not long ago when fans fretted Howard. Now we're licking our chops. Can the Beavs put up 100? Will they win by 40? These are the questions, rather than "Will they win?" It's refreshing. Hopefully the team isn't overlooking these guys like I am.
I'm with JackBeav: 80 something to 60 something.
No TV for tonight's game, but I believe it's available via the official site's stream.
