Owen: After a tough month of basketball in November, the men’s basketball team is hopeful to get back on track in the win column. Dallas Christian College is a member of the Division II National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA). For a college that doesn’t have more than 400 students, this will be the biggest exposure they see all year on ESPN3. The Crusaders have been nothing short of a disaster on defense so far this season. After just eight games, Dallas Christian is giving up 110 points per game. Meanwhile, the Wildcats are looking to get more consistent on offense. This will be a game where junior center Kolton Kohl dominates inside and the reserves get some solid minutes on the court. This one will be nothing short of a blowout for ACU.
ACU vs. DCC: ACU: 120 DCC: 37
Tavian: The Wildcats are looking to get what should be an easy win against Dallas Christian. Dallas Christian College hasn’t been able to find their stride either as they are 1-7 overall and its only win came early in November. Dallas Christian College competes in an association separate from the NCAA, which means they haven’t played anyone to the level that the Wildcats have played. Expect the Wildcats to feed the post with rising star sophomore Joe Pleasant and more shooting from senior Peyton Ricks. Everyone should be getting some playing time in this matchup. I expect the Wildcats to blowout Dallas Christian here in Moody Coliseum Saturday. Wildcats win big.
ACU vs DCC: ACU: 90 DCC: 45
Tyler: The Wildcats are back home after a tough loss to a 7-0 SMU and finishing the night cap of a double header against Southeast Missouri State, and they are looking to win big against the Dallas Christian College Crusaders. The Crusaders are heading into Moody Coliseum against a hungry Wildcats team. The Wildcats outsize the Crusaders by a large margin, leaning heavily on seven foot junior Kolton Kohl and budding star sophomore Joe Pleasant, who had a career showing against SMU, putting up 20 points and six rebounds against the Mustangs. Look for ACU to win big against a young Crusaders team that features only two upperclassmen. ACU will lean on it’s depth chart against DCC, allowing the entirety of the team to play and get needed experience as they’ll head to conference play coming up in the next few weeks. ACU over DCC big. Expect this game to be over early in the first half.
ACU vs DCC: ACU:97 DCC:34
Jalen: After a tough loss against SMU last week, the Wildcats return home to host the Dallas Christian College Crusaders. The Wildcats struggled offensively against the Mustangs as they shot 32.7% from the field and 26.3% from the three point range. In losses, the Wildcats are averaging are a little over 45 points a game and they’re looking to bounce against Dallas Christian. The Crusaders are currently 1-7 and its defense has been rough all season. I expected senior guard Payten Ricks and sophomore forward Joe Pleasant and the rest of the team to run laps around Dallas Christian. Everyone should see plenty of this game. This will be the biggest blowout in ACU history. Wildcats win.
