The Flames will be led by senior guard John Walker III, who averaged 15.2 points and 4.3 rebounds per game last season. Walker is one of the top scorers in the CAC Conference and is a Preseason All-CAC selection.
The Dons will be led by senior forward Morris Udeze, who averaged 16.8 points and 8.3 rebounds per game last season. Udeze is one of the most dominant players in the WCC Conference and is a Preseason All-WCC selection.
The game between the Flames and the Dons is expected to be a challenging one for Bethesda. San Francisco is a more experienced and talented team. However, the Flames have played well against the Dons in recent years, winning two of the last five meetings between the two teams.
I predict that the San Francisco Dons will defeat the Bethesda Flames by a score of 80-65.
San Francisco is a more experienced and talented team than Bethesda. The Dons have a number of returning players from last year’s team, led by Preseason All-WCC selection Morris Udeze. San Francisco also has a good mix of size and speed, which will make them difficult to match up with.
Bethesda is a young team, but they have a few key players who could cause the Dons some problems. John Walker III is a talented scorer who can get hot from behind the three-point line. The Flames also have some good size in the post, which could help them rebound against the Dons.
Overall, I believe that San Francisco has the edge in this matchup. They are a more experienced and talented team. However, Bethesda is a capable team that could pull off the upset if they play their best game.
