Previewing Tonight's Games

Romel Beck and the Wizards take on the unbeated Idaho Stampede tonight.

Tulsa 66ers at Austin Toros

I will more than likely be in attendance at this game, and quite frankly I don't expect to see much of a different result than last night's game.  Moses Ehambe should play better for Tulsa, but other than that their raw big men are still raw.  Talented, certainly, and maybe Mullens will rebound a little better too, but Dwayne Jones should still dominate the boards, and the 66ers don't really have anyone who can guard Alonzo Gee.  If Curtis Jerrells turns the ball over at the rate of the first two games and the other guys on the roster don't hit their shots then Tulsa could be in it, but otherwise Austin should be able to handle them pretty well.

Dakota Wizards at Idaho Stampede

Similarly, I expect the Stampede to win again.  Curtis Withers should still do alright, but I'm not sure he'll be able to guard Anthony Tolliver out on the perimeter, and neither will new acquisition Connor Atchley (assuming he joins the team in time to play).  Idaho is probably due for a poor shooting night, but just as likely the Dakota perimeter guys get caught trying to play Idaho's game when doing so doesn't really suit their own style.  That means you, Romel Beck.  As I said, the Stampede can't hit their shots forever, and Dakota has some pretty solid defenders, but I expect Idaho to stay unbeaten for one more night.
