GameNight: UTEP vs Saint Mary's

November 27th, 2008
Nov 27 2008 - 2:00pm

In a potential bracketbuster, St. Mary's (3-0) takes on UTEP (2-1). While this is a pre-season tournament game, it is played in Anaheim, which should give the Gaels a distinct home court advantage. Both of these teams have been impressive so far. Although St. Mary's has yet to play an opponent of UTEP's caliber, no one has even come close to knocking them off. They are led by Patrick Mills. Mills, the only college player to represent his country in Beijing, is one of the best point guards in the nation.

The NBA Draft is finally behind us, where half of this year’s top dozen picks were freshmen. 2008 looks to be no different, with the likes of one-and-doners Derrick Rose, OJ Mayo and Michael Beasley in all likelihood hearing their names called early.

But of course, not all incoming freshmen are already fielding calls from would-be agents. In fact, not every member of the stellar Class of 2007 is even going to the so-called “Big Six” power conferences. Many are going to be thrilling fans at the mid-major level as well.
