Huskies Vs. Aztecs: Backcourt Advantage

The guards for UW and SDSU are eerily similar players. Kell and Nigel Williams-Goss will be the matchup to watch in this one. Both are tall point guards who use their body control and size advantage to win their position battles. Williams-Goss is better at making those around him better.

Did my description of Polee remind you of anybody? Andrew Andrews and Polee must have been taught how to play basketball by the same guy. Unfortunately, I think this might be a tough matchup for Andrews. Polee is the superior athlete, and his length is likely to bother Andrews. However, both players are capable of taking over the game at any moment.

Advantage: Push (I promise they won’t all be ties!)
