Big Blue Nation got to see the 2022-23 team take the floor for the first time against another opponent, and the Cats put on a show. Several highlight reel plays unfolded, and none stick out more than a couple of dunks from Daimion Collins (see videos below).
Collins finished the game with 15 pts (6-9 FG), 5 reb, 5 ast and 2 blk. His development during the offseason has been phenomenal, adding a mid-range jumper to his game to go with his freakish athleticism.
Reigning National Player of the Year, Oscar Tshiebwe, finished with 17 points and six rebounds on 8-11 shooting in his 22 minutes of action. Daimion Collins and Jacob Toppin also stuffed the stat sheet, but it was their highlight plays that stole the entire show.
