Daily Starter- November 24

The Slate

Western Carolina at Oakland, 7:00
ETSU at Winthrop, 7:00

So, What's the Story?

After some slightly disappointing performances by the SoCon over the weekend, the SoCon gets an opportunity to come up with a couple of wins against mid-majors on Monday evening. The SoCon teams are likely to be underdogs in both games, but they have a chance to win both games as well. Both of these are on the road, so it will not be easy. The SoCon so far this year is 9-11 against mid-major competition. It would sure help the SoCon's cause to come up with another win against a mid-major.

Game of the Day- ETSU at Winthrop

Jalen Riley, Rashawn Rembert and the rapidly improving Ron Giplaye will be on display as ETSU tries to take out Winthrop in a big game for the SoCon. Winthrop, in a true shocker, upset Clemson, but followed that up with a loss at Savannah State. Against Clemson, Keon Moore scored 18 points with five rebounds. Keon Johnson came off the bench and scored 19.

The Eagles will be at home, where they have been just once this year. That was a non-D1 win. This is an opportunity for the Bucs to pull the slight upset, but they will have to be ready to play because the Eagles are a very good bunch capable of playing a great game.
