The name everyone should be ready to hear during the game is Bulldogs forward, Tolu Smith. Smith returned to action just before conference play began, and he is proving to be a much-needed asset for the team. The Bulldogs forward is averaging 16 points a game and bringing down nearly seven rebounds. The Cats must contain him in order to minimize the visitors' chances of grabbing a massive road victory.
