Why Jacksonville can cover

The Dolphins are led by senior guard Kevion Nolan, who has reached double-digit scoring in six of the past seven games. In Saturday’s win over Charleston Southern, Nolan poured in 15 points and dished out six assists. It was the fourth time this season he had scored 15 or more points. For the season, he is averaging 13.8 points, 4.6 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. He is among the team leaders in free-throw shooting, connecting on 83.3% of his foul shots.

Junior forward Mike Marsh is a question mark for the game. He was injured two weeks ago, but had to sit out on Saturday’s game. If he can’t go, look for junior Omar Payne to help fill the void. In six games this season, Payne is averaging 8.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 0.8 assists. Payne scored 17 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to lead the Warhawks to a 91-61 win over Voorhees on Nov. 20.
