Starters, stats, and beer, and the return of the Stat Stuffer Challenge, all you have to do is jump.



AE OFFICIALLY UNOFFICIAL BEER OF THE GAME, a.k.a. PINT TOUCHES: The Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown, Pennsylvania, churns out a number of good brews, but for today, we'll adopt the HopDevil IPA as the Beer of the Game.

JEREL MCNEAL STAT STUFFER CHALLENGE: Mr. K had the jones to play a game in today's thread, so we're dusting off the Stat Stuffer. In case you need a refresher: You're trying to predict the total number of points + rebounds + assists + steals + blocks for a given player. Closest without going over wins a prize*

Today's contestant is Davante Gardner. Davante has become a pillar of the Marquette attack lately, but will have a tough challenge going up against the 6'10" Yarou. You are all tasked with predicting how his numbers will look at the end of the game.

*Today's prize is Rubie photoshopping your head onto a picture Burt Reynolds. You're welcome.
