Goood morning and welcome to the third weekend of non-con. It’s not quite as intense as the past two weekends, but there are still three D2 games today, so… Here we go.
All times pacific.
Notre Dame de Namur vs. Western Oregon @ CU-Portland @ 5pm
NDNU is traditionally horrible and we doubt anything has changed, so… This game really ideally shouldn’t tell us much.
Prediction: WOU wins.
Alaska-Fairbanks @ Westminster (Utah) @ 6:30pm
Beware, the conference lists the game time as being Alaska standard time, which on the one hand is good, but on the other hand is simply confusing. We like when they list it local to where a team is playing, because then it’s standardized; this new listing the “local” time for the conference team involved is strange, especially when they’ve never done it that way before. If you say it’s listed as “local” time, we expect that “local” denotes the location of where the game is being played because otherwise how would that work in conference play? UAF plays at MSUB, do you list it as 7:30 MST or 5:30 AST? With how they’re doing it in non-con, it’s just as likely that it would be listed in AST.
Anyway, Wesminster appears to be pretty solid and UAF definitely doesn’t, so…
Prediction: Griffins win.
Regis (RMAC) @ CU-Portland @ 7:15pm
Historically Regis is good-to-great, and so although they’ve played few games this year, this will theoretically be a pretty tall order for Concordia. Good luck Cavs!
Prediction: Regis wins.
All for today, but we’ll see you guys tomorrow to find out how these games went and to preview those for Saturday.
Be safe, have fun, go GNAC!
