As for the game:

  • Despite being tall, Youngstown State doesn't rebound very well at all. Three of their wins have been against non-Division 1 teams.
  • They scored well in a 91-73 loss to Pittsburgh behind 28 from star Kendrick Perry. But they also lost to Austin Peay (284 in the Pomeroy rankings) and Mizzouri-Kansas City (290 in the Pomeroy rankings)
  • They force turnovers and protect the ball.

Just because this is a likely lightly-attended pre-holiday game doesn't mean the Johnnies can take the opponent lightly. The goal tonight should be to beat down the Penguins and go enjoy Christmas dinner.
