Jaedon LeDee (Forward) vs. Tristen Newton (Guard)


Jaedon LeDee, a forward for San Diego State, has been shining in a big way with an impressive average of 21.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and a 55.9% field goal percentage over the 34 games he played. With his dominance at both ends of the floor Aztecs sure need his contribution now more than ever. LeDee’s strengths are scoring efficiency and rebounding, but the 2.4 turnovers per game in his statistics could be a very risky factor against UConn’s aggressive team.


Tristen Newton, UConn’s guard, has also displayed excellent skills, he has 15.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game over 35 games. Newton has been a key contributor on both ends of the court with his well-rounded game and leadership for the team. Although he makes fewer field goals as LeDee does, his assists and the fact that he has an 80.4% free throw accuracy make him a strong opponent.


LeDee could play as an inside scoring and rebounding weapon for San Diego State, and Newton can step in as a playmaker who is capable of doing everything for UConn. The meeting will be a good showcase of what they got and where their shortcomings are, with the fate of the game on their shoulders.
