GAME DAY QUICK FACTS
- The Bonnies have started a season during the month of December just five times since 1975 and since that point have opened a season later just once: Dec. 16, 1975, vs. Georgetown. St. Bonaventure had not opened a campaign in December since 1992.
- This is Take Three for Bona's opening game: The Bonnies were originally slated to be in the very first game of the NCAA basketball season in "Bubbleville" back on Nov. 25, but a positive COVID-19 test paused team activities for two weeks on Nov. 19, cancelling three games against Stephen F. Austin, Towson and Army (after another was already wiped away when Vermont decided not to play non-conference games). SBU tried again this past Saturday when, less than two hours before tip, a positive COVID test from Saint Francis (PA) canceled that game as well. In all, the Bonnies have had five games taken off the schedule so far because of COVID cancellations.
- Tuesday's game will take place in Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, home of the Cleveland Cavaliers. The Bonnies are looking for another regular season win inside an NBA venue: Last November, St. Bonaventure scored a victory over Rutgers in the Toronto Raptors' ScotiaBank Arena as part of the Basketball Hall of Fame Naismith Classic. On that night, Alejandro Vasquez poured in a game-high 20 points and Justin Winston added 19.
