The meeting will not only pit two of the top powers in the HCAC against each other, but will present a matchup of two of the top scoring threats in the league as Anthony Pettaway and BU’s Mike Anthony face off.
Pettaway has reached double figures in the scoring column in all but one of Defiance’s 18 games this season and has registered six double-doubles. The sophomore center has emerged as one of the league’s top big men and is currently third in scoring with 16.1 points per game and fifth in rebounds with 7.3 boards per outing.
Bluffton is led by 16.3 points a night from Anthony, who also chips in 4.9 rebounds per contest. The senior forward enters play on Wednesday second in the HCAC in scoring and has led the Beavers in scoring in 11 of their 19 games this season.
A junior varsity game between Defiance and Bluffton will start at 5:30 pm, with the main event scheduled to tip-off at 7:30 pm.
All DC students with an I.D. will be admitted for free and those wearing a SWARM shirt will also receive a free bag of popcorn from the concession stand.
The gameday promotions will also include a special round of musical chairs between Defiance and Bluffton fans at the half as well as the Scotty’s Club 111 47-foot halftime shot.
