Meet the Teams

Santa Clara

The Broncos are coming off a rather disappointing 14-19 season last year but are looking to improve greatly on that record. With six new freshmen (two redshirt fr.) available on the roster this year, the team is loaded with an abundance of young talent. Lead by the two headed monster of Brandon Clark and Jared Brownridge at the guard position, the Broncos will look to these two to continue the bulk of scoring that they contributed to the team last year.

Cal State Fullerton

Coming off a similar season as the Broncos, the Titans will also lean on their guard play for much of their scoring production. Senior guard Alex Harris will continue to put up big numbers for his squad as senior big man Steve McClellan will work on controlling the paint. Both teams finished 6-10 in the WCC last year and both hope to make a bigger splash this year in a loaded, mid major conference.

Key Matchup

Brandon Clark vs. Alex Harris

Fans will be watching in anticipation for something special to happen in this battle between these key senior guards. Both are lighting quick with the ability to score from anywhere on the court. Clark will look to defend his home turf as Harris attempts to steal the opener away from Clark and his Bronco teammates. Look for quite a few shots to be put up between these two guys but pay close attention for something amazing to happen. Both players have that “wow” factor that coaches look for in certain players.
