The California Baptist Lancers are riding high. CBU is one of the best offensive teams in the nation. And CBU play-by-play broadcaster Braiden Bell joins the podcast to talk about this Lancer offense.
The Lancers rank in the top-25 nationally in a variety of offensive categories including points per game, 3-point field goal percentage and rebounds. CBU is tops in the WAC in 3-point field goal percentage, free throw percentage and points per game. It is quite unique considering that the Lancers lost the majority of their offense from 2019-20.
However, Ty Rowell, Reed Nottage, Tre Armstrong and Gorjok Gak have stepped up. And Mark Carbone and Elijah Thomas also provide an offensive spark at times.
It has led to mixed results, however. CBU is 8-5 overall and 3-3 in WAC play. The Lancers lost on Saturday night at the CBU Events Center to Dixie State.
Bell also talks about how excited he is to call this week’s CBU game at New Mexico State. The game is being played at Eastwood High School in El Paso. Just listen to Bell describe his thoughts when he first saw pictures of the ‘arena’.
Along with this, Bell also describes his feelings toward the EA Sports announcement on Tuesday. It might surprise you. Bell got a little jealous when I told him I had an old Xbox 360 with NCAA football. Yes, I am that old but I love that game.
And last but not least, the CBU play-by-play broadcaster has a request for New Mexico State fans. And it is important so help him out Aggie fans.
