Reason for Northern Arizona Lumberjacks vs #17 Arizona Wildcats NCAAB Picks

Northern Arizona Lumberjacks +22.5

The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks are set to visit McKale Memorial Center in Tucson, Arizona in the season opener as they will face the Arizona Wildcats. The Northern Arizona Lumberjacks will be looking to rebound from their 2018-2019 season as they went 10-21 with an 8th place finish in the Big Sky.

There will be some friendly faces on the opposite bench in this game. The Lumberjacks who had been coached by Jack Murphy for the past 8 years resigned, so he could join the Arizona coaching staff.  The Lumberjacks will be led by junior forward Brenie Andre.

The team returns five of its top six scorers from a season ago, including Bernie Andre, who averaged a team-high 13.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. Ted McCree was third on the team in scoring at 10.7 points per game and is expected to start the year as the team’s sixth man.

Junior forward Bernie Andre was the 2018-19 Big Sky Newcomer of the Year and third-team selection after averaging team bests of 13.8 points and 8.5 rebounds.

#17 Arizona Wildcats -22.5

The Arizona Wildcats will be looking to rebound from their 2018-2019 season as they went 17-15 with an 8th place finish in the Pac-12. The Arizona Wildcats will have to replace their leading scorer from a season ago as Brandon Randolph moved to the professional ranks after averaging 12.4 PPG. The Wildcats should be strong in the frontcourt with redshirt senior center Chase Jeter as the big man averaged 10.9 PPG and 6.6 RPG last year.

The top returning scorer for Sean Miller's team is Brandon Williams. Sophomore guard Brandon Williams is the top returning scorer (11.4 points) and also contributed 3.4 assists in 28.2 minutes per game last season. Senior center Chase Jeter enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2018-19 with 10.9 points and a team-high 6.6 rebounds.

Wildcats senior G Dylan Smith (7.2 points, 24.4 minutes last season) and junior F Ira Lee (6.6, 17.9) provide leadership and depth. The Wildcats do not play a ranked opponent until their eighth game, when they visit No. 18 Baylor on Dec. 8.
