NORTHWESTERN 80 Fairleigh Dickinson 53 (F)

This game had the tenor of the Texas Southern opener.  In other words this was a blowout.  We are not very motivated to write about this game as we've already been down this road once and that first date excitement has worn off.  The official story is located here.

There were no real stars of the game although some are making Olah's effort as meritorious for extra attention.  The highlight for us was to see Ricola Cerina make his official debut.  Looked pretty good.  Until he went down with some type of ankle injury.  We hope he is okay.

Next up: It's Groundhog Preseason as another familiar face comes to the friendly Welsh environs: Delaware State.  Tuesday 7PM Central.  Delaware State is 3-0 and ranked in low 200s on kenpom.com.  This means they would be expected to win over Nebraska on a neutral court.  They most recently upset Wagner in OT.  Wagner is currently ranked 115 on kenpom.com.
