And let's get it started.

WKU is also 2-0 on the young season defeating St. Joes and Alabama A&M. The trio of forwards is the group to watch on both ends of the floor. Kerush and Pettigrew are 6-5 forwards that will be interesting match-ups for Williams and Mbakwe (or whoever starts). Pattillo is scoring 19 while also grabbing 12 rebounds per game and at 6-6 he'll also be an intriguing match-up with the taller Sampson. The former Oklahoma player looks like he'll be a major boost to Western this year in their quest to regain the Sun Belt Conference title.
Minnesota will have their hands full tonight. WKU gets up and down scoring a lot of points. I'm sure we will start the game with the intent to pound the ball inside using our height advantage. If we can dictate the flow we should be just fine. But it should be a very good game.
