*4 Star Play on Weber State* The Portland State Vikings are a very inexperienced team this year. Portland State made their mark on the country last year with impressive wins in the non-conference slate, but this Portland State team isn't even close to as good.
Portland State is still pressing most of the time. The Vikings were in the top 15 in turnovers forced last year though, and they aren't even in the top 150 in the country in that category this year. The Vikings have committed the second most fouls in the country. Weber State is excellent at getting to the line, and the Wildcats shoot 73.5% from the line.
Portland State is dead last in the nation in 3 point shooting percentage. The Vikings rely heavily on getting offensive rebounds, and Weber State ranks 39th in the nation in defensive rebounding percentage.
Weber State is clearly the more talented team, and we should get a max effort out of them here. The Wildcats were stunned at home by Southern Utah in their last game. That was their worst performance of the year. Weber State needs to get back on track here.
Portland State is coming off an upset win at Montana. They are feeling pretty good about themselves, but they are the less talented team.
Take Weber State.
