On Wednesday night, it was a tale of two halves in Denver, CO for both the Utah Valley Wolverines and the Denver Pioneers.
The first half was all about the Pioneers, as they were able to take a 21-point lead into halftime, at 54-33. In the second half, it was all about the comeback for the Wolverines.
Utah Valley began chipping away from start of the second half, and took a lead of their own with just 3:58 left in the game.
After a missed three pointer from Brandon Randolph that would have all but sealed the game for the Wolverines, Isaac Neilson grabbed the offensive rebound, forcing Denver to foul. Jordan Poydras hit both free throws, putting the Wolverines up by four with nine seconds on the clock.
With the exhibition season in full swing, and coming to a close early this week, that can mean only one thing.
The 2016-17 college basketball regular season is just around the corner!
Things get underway Friday, November 11th at Noon EST with the first regular season game of the season, and there will be a plethora of talent on display across all 32 conferences all season long.
Before the season gets started, we decided to hand out some preseason hardware, in the form of our Conference Player of the Year award and All-Conference Teams.
Along with that, we have the College Court Report All-Americans, and the Mid-Major Player of the Year Preseason Watch List. Links to all of the conference awards and the Watch List can be found at the bottom of each article.
