Subject: Rider v NIagara

Niagara has played well and not so well.

If Fisher stays in the paint it opens up opportunities for our big guy, Ben, at 6'10", who has been playing very well.

Lewis injured his hand a few games ago and he is NU's fireplug on defense.

Still waiting for our 6'7" Slovakian PF to be cleared by the NCAA which would make NU a tougher team. He played two years at the JUCO level waiting for him to clear is frustrating. In the end, I think this game belongs to the Eagles....78-72.

Makes sense but in NU's case I don't think so.

Fisher has a tendency to play away from the rim. In doing so he lets his defenders retreat to the paint and collapse in the middle, in this case on 6'10" Benson Egemonye, who is developing nicely. If Fisher is in the paint his defender, and others, must pay attention to Fisher thus relieving some of the defensive pressure on Big Ben. He has played well of late.

Thompson is a very good player and will be a handful. For NU to win, IMO, Tyrone Lewis has to be back at full strength and playing tough D with frosh Anthony Nelson. If so, Rider will have a tough time getting the ball to Thompson. If we don't play well defensively it could be a long night for the Purps, even on our home court. Lewis is the key IMO. If he is healthy we have one of the best backcourts in the MAAC along with Hodge. Though only a soph, he is also emerging as a leader and floor general.

Good luck.

Rider should beat Niagara. They are one dimensional with Fisher hoisting up shot after shot. If you literally put two guys on him you will win by 20. All Siena did was triple team him when he got the ball and he was not smart enough to pass it out to open teammates. He would just continue to try to bull through three guys and then complain he wasn't getting calls. Also their big guy Benson is a stiff on the perimeter. Everytime Siena ran a ball screen with his man they got wide open shots and layups. Fisher plays no D so have his man screen away from the ball and you'll see the most open shot ever. Siena abused them and Rider should too with a more balanced approach. Be prepared to see a lot of zone as I think JAM knows he cannot guard anyone with Benson and Charron on the court.
