    Stats: https://richmondspiders.com/documents/2020/11/29/Combined_Team_Stats_1_.pdf

    Richmond is led by 6’0” Blake Francis (16.6 ppg), 6’10” Grant Golden (14.8 ppg & 6.5 reb), 6’7” Tyler Burton (13.7 ppg & 8.2 reb), 6’7” Nathan Cayo (11.6 ppg & 3.9 reb), and 5’9” Jacob Gilyard (11.4 ppg & 5.5 assists per game). Their starters continue to play most of the game. In the first game against us Richmond enjoyed very balanced scoring with Golden getting 18, Burton 17, Gilyard 15, and Francis 13.

    Richmond averages 76.3 points per game while giving up 70.3. The Spiders shoot 48.4% from the floor and 34.9% from 3. Opponents are shooting 46.9% from the field and 33.2% from 3. The Spiders shoot 74.4% from the free throw line. The Spiders are currently out being rebounded by their opponents to the tune of 4.8 boards per game.

    The game is on ESPN+.

    My prediction: They crushed us first time out and will do so once again unless we find a way to get them in foul trouble. They are better than us, pure and simple. Spiders 78 - Patriots 56. DP falls to 90 - 90 all time and just 43 - 57 in A10 play. Brad Edwards, pleased with having “nice kids” who get their ass kicked, extends DP to a lifetime contract.

    Looks like GDub is paused through at least the 6th.
