UCONN Center Amida Brimah will face Temple Power Forward Ernest Aflakpui in the frontcourt at the XL Center in Connecticut. The game tips off at 2:00 AM.
Heading into the anticipated matchup, both players have been in good form.
Brimah missed out on a double- double performance in UCONN’s 61-70 loss to Memphis University where the 6 foot 11 inch shot blocker scored nine points and grabbed 15 rebounds adding two blocks.
Brimah improved his statistics in the blocks department in UCONN’S 64-49 win as he paced the game with five blocks.
Aflakpui on the other hand, rebounded from a scoreless performance against Southern Methodist University with a double-double of his own scoring 13 points and grabbing 10 rebounds to power the Owls past University of Central Florida. Temple beat Florida 81-62.
Fourth year man Brimah is looking to become the second ever Ghanaian-born player to be drafted into the NBA.
