GW versus St. Bonaventure Game Thread

Next up for GW is a road trip to Olean, NY and a game with St. Bonaventure in a Saturday matinee. Although we beat the Bonnies last year, we suffered a lost in Olean two years ago, the last time we played there.

The Bonnies, who were projected to finish behind GW in the A10 (at 13th of 14), had a pretty good OOC, finishing at 8-3 against a so-so schedule, but have lost their first three A10 contests to Dayton, Duquesne, and Davidson. Their loss to Davidson on this past Wednesday in Olean was a close contest (50-47).

SBU matches up pretty well with GW from a height and style perspective. They are a mixture of experience and youth and have the same offensive and rebounding challenges as the Colonials. The Bonnies are led by 5’8” senior guard Asianae Johnson, who averages 15.5 ppg on 43.6% shooting, and 3.3 apg. She doesn’t seem to be a 3-point threat with only 8 attempts so far this year. The rest of the scoring is spread out pretty evenly among five other players, led by 6’0” Tobi Harris at 9.7 ppg, and 6’3” I’yanna Lops at 8.1 ppg. Lops also leads the Bonnies in rebounding at 6.3 rpg. They have three players (Harris, Dzeizgowski, and Oppenheimer) who have taken 45+ 3 pointers, with all hitting around 30% of them. As a team, SBU scores 56.1 ppg, while allowing 57.6 ppg. They shoot 36.7% from the field and 26.3% from distance.

After the URI game diminished our overall season stats, GW comes into this contest at 7-8 and averaging 52.2 ppg while giving up 55.7 ppg. We are shooting 34.3% from the filed and 29% from beyond the arc. With a full complement of players, this should be a competitive game, maybe with GW having a slight edge. Unfortunately, in these times, it’s hard to predict who will be available, or when, if at any time this season, we’ll come into a game with a fully healthy team. Regardless, our younger players will come in with additional game and practice experience, so if they have to hold the fort a little longer, it will be great to see how they perform against a team that isn’t as talented inside the paint as URI.
