Breaks out of funk Rachal had 21 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-11 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists across 36 minutes in Saturday's 77-68 victory over East Carolina.
Impact Rachal had been in a bit of a slump of late, as the senior was averaging 11.8 points and 3.8 rebounds over his previous four games. Three of those games were on the road, however, and several were against some of the top defenses in the conference. There's no better opportunity than a matchup against ECU, a team that is 1-6 in AAC play. Rachal will look to keep this momentum going in a showdown Wednesday against SMU.
