N’Faly Dante has been the main man for the Ducks so far. The big center was among the team’s leading scorers in both games. He played 26 minutes in the first and managed to score 16 points, along with 10 rebounds and an assist. In the second game he was even better. Dante played 28 minutes and scored 20 points in a losing cause.

They opened their account with an away loss to the Grand Canyon Antelopes (60-54) but bounced back in Game 2 to win against the Long Beach State 49ers (70-57). This will be their game on the road and they would like it to end on a high note.
