The unranked 14-3 UNLV Rebels lead by 6 foot 8 power forward Anthony Bennett will face the #15 San diego State Aztecs. The Aztecs are 14-2 and the reason why is only two words. Jaamal Franklin. Franklin does most of his damage when he finishes at the hoop. Franklin is particularly good at finding holes in zones and driving through them to the hoop. Although he is only 6 foot 5 inches a whole 3 inches shorter than Bennit giving Bennit the advantage in that category.
Anthony Bennett is also the number one candidate for the NCAA Wooden Award. It is clear why though. He has 9.3 rebounds per game and 19.6 points per game leading the Rebels in both of those categories. Jaamal Franklin makes the list of Wooden Award candidates too. He is ranked further down the list at number 8. The reason why is clear, he has great court vision and it pays off. He has 17.9 points per game, 10.3 rebounds per game, and 3.5 assists leading the Aztecs in all of those categories.
The Aztecs as a whole team are a decsent team only losing to the Syracuse Orange and the Arizona State Wildcats. Find out if they will have to add the UNLV Rebels to that list. Post in the comments with your predictions!
