Denver Pioneers Tickets for Sale

The backcourt is very good and will have to lead the way. 6'-1' senior Erik Benzel (14 ppg, 5 rpg) led the Pioneers in scoring and shot 42% from long range. He teams with 5'-10' sparkplug Rodney Billups (10 ppg, 5 apg), the younger brother of the Detroit Pistons star Chauncey Billups. So the team has its No. 1 and 3 scorers back.

But the cupboard in the frontcourt is not bare. 6'-9' junior Terrence Gordon and 6'-10' junior Yemi Nicholson were role players off the bench last season, but get a chance to start. Both got better as the season went along, too. Denver goes on long road trips when playing in the Sun Belt, and it's not surprising they were 9-4 SU/4-7 ATS at home, but 5-9 SU/4-6 ATS on the road
The Denver Pioneers (14-13 SU, 8-13 ATS) should have been better last season and this year they have to replace their key frontcourt aces, losing 6'-9', 260-lb Brett Starkey (13 ppg, 7 boards pg), 6'-8' Carvell McAlister and 6'-8' Zeljko 'Ziggy' Zupic.
