Always good when you can get a game in December that pits two mid-major conference favorites against each other, acts as a guage of relative league strength. Pacific was short-sold in the preseason polls due to graduation losses, but people who saw how well they played big, tough Nevada
, or what they did to San Jose State
the other night, know that they're not to be slept on.The 5-1 Hilltoppers have been exactly as good as advertised, and would have a more prominent place in the national conversation if not for a trip-up at home
versus Georgia. Diddle me this: 6'4" senior Anthony "A-Dub" Winchester (24.5 PPG/51.5% FG) is a legitimate candidate for the national scoring title, and sophomore Courtney "C-Lee" Lee (18.7 PPG) is quickly becoming a Sun Belt star.
