The Wildcats need to focus their defense on sophomore guard Tyler Bernardini. He is averaging 17.8 points per game and is shooting 40% from three. Last season Bernardini hit 4 threes and 9 free throws to score 21 points against Nova. Coming off a great game versus Rhode Island, Reggie Redding will probably see a lot of time tonight to try to shut him down.
Tip off is 8:00 PM at the Palestra in Philly. Nova should be familiar with the rims after playing two games in a row there during the Philly Classic. The game will be televised on CN8.
