Preview: Nicholls State Colonels

Cal State Fullerton plays three games in three days this weekend at the Beryl Shipley Classic in the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana. First up is Nicholls State, tonight at 3:00pm PT.

Scouting report

  • Team Preview
  • Best player (Fred Hunter) out for year with knee injury
  • Three-point shooting team
  • Young team. Return only two players with significant playing time: Bryan Hammond and Dantrell Thomas.
  • Picked to finish last in Southland East (6 teams)
  • Sam McBeath, a forward from Sydney, Australia. Named one of the five best players in New South Wales in 2009, McBeath's frame and size will make it hard for defenders to get a grasp on his game, having both speed and finesse in his arsenal.
  • McBeath has yet to play a game for unknown reasons.
