The Cal Poly Pomona men’s basketball team is about to tip off in its game against Montana State-Billings at the Grand Canyon Christmas Invitational at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix.
The Broncos (2-2) will be without the services of their biggest player – 6-foot-9 forward Tobias Jahn who is nursing a groin injury. He isn’t even dressed. That puts the Broncos down to nine available players with senior Kevin Menner possibly seeing limited minutes due to a sore knee.
Cal Poly should be able to get by despite that. The Yellowjackets are just 1-6 and tomorrow’s foe, Simon Fraser, is just 2-3.
The Broncos have six players back from a team that won a national title but the jury is still out. We probably won’t know much more after this weekend because they still will not have faced an opponent over .500.
It’s too bad the Broncos can’t play a better schedule. Travel costs are an issue but a lot of people don’t want to play them. So they’re in a tough position.
