#9 Pfeiffer (3-0) -4 at Rockhurst (3-0): The first game of the Challenge kicks off with a matchup between two undefeated teams. Unipanther, in his first Challenge, has to defend home court against veteran coach bow2dacowz. Pfeifer's small-ball attack is led by guards Willie Bohler and Colby Schumacher, each averaging over 12 ppg. Pfeiffer has made a living slashing to the basket, averaging over 80 ppg with only four made 3-pointers on the year.
Rockhurst appears to be a year away, with 5 juniors and zero seniors on the roster, but that hasn't stopped them from a perfect start. PFs Allen Weaver and Jack Fulmer combine for 28 ppg, with PG Bruce Jessup blazing away at 50% from deep to add 13.3 ppg. In fact, the whole Rockhurst team averages 50% from three, in route to 86 ppg.
#9 Pfeiffer will have to contend with a confident Rockhurst team on their home floor. It should be a track meet, with the visitors favored by 4.
