KEEP AN EYE ON
Scouting Quinnipiac:
Ike Azotam has scored career highs in his last two games and the brst couldn’t have come at a better time. With Jamee Jackson expected to miss up to five weeks with torn ligaments in his left foot Azotam has become an offensive force. Freshman Ousmane Drame was also terrific last game, a win over Niagara, registering his first career double-double. Drame is averaging 5.9 rebounds a game in just over 15 minutes of action.
Scouting Colgate: The Red Raiders are 4-0 at home on the season and have a balanced offense with five players averaging at least nine points a game. They shoot 40 percent from 3-point range and are 2-0 on the season against Northeast Conference teams. They’ve played at Wisconsin and at Syracuse this season but both were blowouts.
