One of the most surprising scores on Tuesday night was Denver’s 90-62 pasting of Belmont at Magness Arena. The Bruins have wins over Indiana State and North Carolina to their credit, making the margin of defeat a surprise. But Joe Scott’s Pioneers, picked to finish second in the Summit League behind North Dakota State, have played better basketball of late after starting the season 1-4.
A key player is senior forward Chris Udofia, a very versatile player who is second on the team in points (13.6 ppg), rebounds (5.4 rpg) and assists (3.4 apg). And on Tuesday night Udofia threw down an impressive two-handed finish while being fouled by Belmont’s Caleb Chowbay.
