Senior (5/7)

  1. Iona was ranked as the pre-season favorite to win the MAAC, but maybe isn't quite on the same level as last year's team considering their five-point loss at Hofstra. Boise St. has back-to-back wins against Loyola-Chi (by 22) and Colorado (who beat Tenn and Texas A&M) after losses to South Dakota St and Charlotte Boise State Drake looks good, but hasn't been test yet (Wyoming, Buffalo and Wofford don't look like tournament teams).
  2. Same goes for Florida St., Georgetown, SMU, Louisville, etc...
  3. Good points. Exciting to think we beat Providence without our full or fully healthy line-up. Our depth should be a strength this season. But it's good to see we can still win at a high level when we don't have as much of it.
  4. The refrain of "he's not a troll, he's actually a really nice guy if you get to know him" gets tired, as the two are not mutually exclusive. Similarly, how one feels about Billiken basketball and how one posts on a message board are two different things. Indeed, ignore is a useful option for all.
  5. So both teams shot themselves in the foot. Nice! Really glad we evened the score on the scheduling front.
  6. The Tuesday night scheduling was always going to make visitor attendance tough. That was a missed opportunity.
  7. Want to speed up the offense, drive the lane, and draw fouls? Play Parker. Want to go a little bigger, add a little more energy on defense, and spread the floor a little more (to make space for soul-crushing alley-oops)? Play Hargrove. There's a use for either in any game depending on what the other team is doing. Them splitting 20-25 minutes in different ways seems to be working pretty well so far.
  8. "26-year-old DeAndre Williams" Wow. A full 2 years older than JGood.
  9. Here they are, for today, 11/14: AP Poll - SLU #30: Coaches Poll - SLU #36:
  10. Guessing we'll get a few votes in the Coaches Poll this week, after getting snubbed last week.
  11. Bad night for the A10 with Rhode Island (0-2) losing to Texas State and Bonnies (1-1) losing to Canisius. SLU, La Salle, and VCU all handled their low-level opponents.
  12. Nice to see our future opponent Salukis beat Oklahoma State tonight 61-60 in Clearwater. They might actually be a solid opponent this year if they can also beat UNLV at a neutral site game on 11/22. Side note, Oklahoma State had a terrible crowd. Their stadium was mostly empty except for the very lowest courtside sections comprised of 4-5 rows.
  13. I wouldn't be surprised if in Hughes Jr. becomes a starter and integral part of the team over multiple seasons and is never on scholarship. Having one more scholarship for coach to improve the roster with might mean more to him than taking it himself.
  14. Same for sports-reference.com. Maybe the "we" is The Wiz inadvertently revealing that he considers himself a Purple Aces fan above all else.
