Clarkson Men Open Season At Bryant & Stratton

It has been more than 10 months since the Clarkson University Men's Basketball team stepped on the court for a game and the Golden Knights are anxious to begin the 2020-21 campaign this weekend when the team travels to Bryant & Stratton (Buffalo) to take on the Bobcats.

The Series: Saturday's meeting will be the first clash between the two teams.

Key Stats for Clarkson (0-0): The Golden Knights lost two starters to graduation in Matt Higgins (14.6 points per game) and Barryn Shark (3.9 assists per game) and the team will also be without last year's freshman sensation Ryan Miles-Ferguson for the semester, but the Green and Gold return plenty of offensive firepower for 2021. Junior Chris Hulbert ranked fourth in the Liberty League a year ago with 15.8 points per game and few shooters could get hot quicker than Hulbert. He ranked third in the conference in 3-point field goals made (70) and enjoyed 10 games with four or more makes from beyond the arc. Overall, Clarkson made 231 3-pointers and will have sharp-shooting seniors Roburt Welch, Joe Lucas, and Jason Phelps back to add to the backcourt. Welch scored 7.8 ppg in 20 minutes per contest and was hitting his stride in the second semester last season when he delivered all seven of his double-digit scoring games. Phelps played in just four games as a junior before sitting out the rest of the campaign while remaining with the team and his all-around game will a welcome return for the Knights. Junior forward Reese Swedberg ranked third on the team in scoring last season (11.0 ppg) and ranked sixth in the conference in rebounding (7.5 rpg) with seven double-doubles.

Key Stats for Bryant & Stratton (3-2): The Bobca

ts will have a leg up on the Knights on Saturday as the team has already played in five games, including two this semester. The rotation runs deep with nine players having competed in all five games and several others logging double-digit minutes in shortened time. Bryant & Stratton likes to get up and down the court, averaging 86.0 points per game, but the team generally plays inside the arc, shooting 51.6% from the floor overall with less than seven 3-pointers made per contest. Shyquinn Dix runs the offense and is a threat both with the ball in his hands and as a distributor, averaging team-bests of 13.6 points and 7.0 assists per game. His most frequent targets are Tyrell Mitchell (13.0 ppg) and Eric Waters (12.0 ppg). Both Mitchell and Waters are efficient scorers, shooting 57.4% and 59.5%, respectively.
