OREM, Utah - Utah Valley University will play its third game in five nights when the Wolverines host Haskell University on Friday at 7:05 p.m. MT in the UCCU Center. The game can be heard live on 960 AM the Zone.
UVU (4-4) dropped a Wednesday night contest against Wyoming and earlier in the week, notched an 11-point win over Northern Illinois. Alfonzo Hubbard scored 10 points and pulled down eight boards to lead UVU at Wyoming while Geddes Robinson notched a double-double and the Wolverines were led by 15 from Isiah Williams against NIU.
The Wolverines and Indians are meeting for the second year in a row in Orem after UVU defeated Haskell last Jan. 4.
"They played us very hard and competitively last year," said coach Dick Hunsaker of Haskell. "Coach Kills Crow has done a nice job building his program."
Williams leads UVU with an average of 15.5 points per game while Robinson is averaging 11.5 points and 10.6 rebounds.
Utah Valley will have a pair of games next week, first traveling to Logan to face Utah State on Tuesday before hosting Portland State on Saturday, Dec. 10.
