FAYETTEVILLE, NC - Another North Carolina snowstorm gave the Fayetteville State men's basketball team some extended rest prior to its Saturday contest against Winston-Salem State at Felton J. Capel Arena. That game, a battle;at Livingstone, was postponed due to the weather and will be made up on Monday night.
In the meantime, the Broncos battle the Rams at 4 pm in a game that will be available on Comcast Sports Southeast, Bounce TV and Aspire TV (Raleigh/Fayetteville TWC 288). Check your local listings for the game in your area.
FSU has played inspired basketball of late, winning four straight games to leap to 5-1 in Southern Division play.
Tyrrel Tate (Raleigh, NC) is averaging 17.9 points per game, the fifth-highest total in the conference. He has scored in double figures in 12 of his last 13 games and has only failed to score at least 10 points on four occasions this season.
Bobby Collins is in his 10th season as a head coach and seventh at the helm of the Rams. Collins came to WSSU after three years in charge of the Hampton Pirates.
Marquez Jones is the third-leading scorer in the CIAA, averaging 19.6 points per game. His 141 field goals this season rank first in the league. In the first meeting between these foes, he scored 14 points on 4-of-11 shooting.
Wykevin Bazemore is the league's top rebounder, averaging 9.1 boards per contest. He is averaging 14.1 points per game and scored a season-high 27 points against Livingstone on February 1.
This will be the 85th meeting between these teams and the second this season. The Rams lead the all-time series, 45-39.
FSU dominated the game in a 72-54 win in Pikeville, NC, on January 25. FSU shot 51.8 percent (29-of-56) from the floor and hit six of its 13 3-pointers.
In the game against Johnson C. Smith, each member of the Broncos roster earned their first win at Brayboy Gymnasium. FSU managed to gut out a 71-66 win despite shooting just 31.3 percent from the field, thanks in part to a defense that limited the Golden Bulls to 39-percent scoring and outrebounded JCSU 50-39.
Tate scored 16 points to lead the Broncos, while Showers recorded a double-double (13 points, 10 rebounds) and Dawson added 11 points for Fayetteville State.
After this one, FSU will travel to Livingstone on Monday at 7:30 pm, trying to avenge its only Southern Division loss to this point of the season in the makeup of Wednesday's postponement.
