Listener of the Streets (6/7)

  1. Long article, but interesting. Some good in-depth analysis of each A10 team. I found this interesting and an area to look for some improvement: SLU took 42% of their shots at the rim last season, a larger attempt rate than they had from the mid-range or from three-point range. The Billikens only scored a rather average 1.18 points per possession from those shots at the rim. Okoro did record an impressive number of blocks, but teams were able to score 1.22 points per possession on shots at the rim against the Billikens, higher than the average in the A10. https://a10stats.wordpress.com/2022/09/26/previewing-the-atlantic-10-what-we-know-and-what-we-dont-know/
  2. Our match-ups with Dayton will be high level entertainment.
  3. Houston, we have a problem. A better, but fairly listless, effort by the Red/White/Blue. Two okay teams shut down the offense. Adams, Zimmerman, Scally and Turner were okay. The rest, meh. DId Scally secure a seat on the plane to Quatar? For me he did. Pepi and McKenzie need to make sure they have Fox TV to view the games from home. Can this team accomplish a 1-1-1 record in the group? Will that be enough to get them through?
  4. Memphis on three year probation, $5000 fine, and vacate one win that Wiseman played in. "Make that a Veggie Burger please, no cheese, no lettuce, no tomato, no pickles." https://www.si.com/college/2022/09/27/memphis-penny-hardaway-avoid-major-penalties-in-ncaa-probe-james-wiseman-recruitment
  5. After our win in the HOF opener against Maryland, we would possibly play Providence, if they can get by Miami. The Friars are another team we should defeat. They lost a ton of scoring, and brought in a ton of transfers, including Clifton Moore from LaSalle. They have three significant returnees. I'd call it a Billiken win in the HOF winners bracket, but I'm not sure they will get by "the U". Coach Cooley is perhaps their biggest asset. https://www.collegesportsmadness.com/article/20963
  6. Here is a different spin on the starting lineup. Try and put together a depth chart. What makes it fun, is that we have a bunch of players who play on the wing. Are they SF or SG? Is Jimerson a SF or a SG? Same for Perkins. So using the classical 5-4-3-2-1 positions, what is your depth chart. Center - Okoro, Forrester, Cisse PF - Pickett, Thatch, Hargrove SF - Jimerson, Rivera, Kramer SG - Perkins, Parker, Hughes PG - Collins, Perkins, Thatch, Thames Yeah, it doesn't fit a pattern. There are six to seven players you could put in more than one slot. Just about the only two that aren't movable into mulitple slots are Okoro and Collins.
  7. Billiken foe Memphis comes in at 46. They lost 6 of their top 7 scorers from last season. No reason we can't take them at home. https://www.collegesportsmadness.com/article/20957
  8. Butt ugly. Turner good, Aaronson showed a lot of energy, Reyna okay, the rest should have stayed in the hotel.
  9. Coach announced Long is starting. He mentioned his open field defense and his experience in a high pressing line. He will sub in a CB at halftime.
  10. 1 1/2 hours is too long for me to listen. Give us a recap. Thanks in advance.
  11. So you are saying that we won't be using our 'Yuri, dribble around for 25 seconds and then figure something out' offense?
  12. I'm agreeing with you, and he brings some veteran, "been there, done that" experience. I don't know if he starts, but he should be on the squad.
  13. Well, I was wrong on my assumption that Pepi wouldn't get a call up for the last two friendlies. Ferreira, Sargent and Pepi are the three strikers he called in, leaving Pefork, Vazquez and Wright at home. While this is not the final WQ roster, I'm guessing (again) that those three will get plane tickets to Quatar. For tomorrow's friendly with Japan (7:25 AM start), we have injury replacements for Musah, Richards, and Carter-Vickers all out with camp/recent injuries. Steffen, Weah and Robinson weren't called into camp with existing injuries. While this is not ideal, the likelihood of an injury right before the WQ is real, so having backup plans is necessary.
