Hunt was everywhere tonight with 14 points and 13 boards including 6-9 FGs and 5 offensive boards. He looks like he could become a great college player but is a little reckless at times and did have 4 of our 10 turnovers tonight.

C.J. White looked much improved and had 5 assists vs only one turnover while contributing 6 points on 3-7 FGs. He ran the point much of the night and played pretty good D with a block and a steal but I still hope Davis and McNeil get to play this year.

Mike and Jolly are scoring machines and I think we can count on both to be consistent double figure scorers. I thought Ray looked better tonight and good a good job on the defensive boards.

Still concerned about Chargois after another 1-8 shooting night.

Once we hear from the ncaa and get Aggie playing in a month this is going to be a pretty good team.

Ethan is playing like someone who knows they are losing their starting spot.

The length on the team is nice. It will help us defensively the entire season. We are going to have to play zone against smaller teams because we are going to get beat off the bounce by small guards. But so did the 30-5 team. I'm also going to upset people by stating that CJ is a nice rotational piece off the bench. Not a wasted scholarship at all.

The thing that is going to prevent us from competing at the top of the conference is a lack of a second scorer. Jolly has emerged as a number one. Mike, Hunt, Ethan are all number 3 scorers - solid players that can hit double digits on most nights. I love that. But we don't have a dependable number 2 option right now. I love watching Hunt and his energy, but he isn't that defined number 2 option yet.

Even if we get the two waivers, I think we are lacking a clear, reliable number two scoring option. McNeil is inconsistent, and Davis is a provider more than scorer.

Starters: Davis, Jolly, Hunt, Mike, Jasey
Second team: CJ, Bandoumel, McNeil, Ray, Ethan.

I love the depth there. Our second team will destroy the opposition bench on most nights. But at the end of a close game and in tourney play, you need a dependable second scorer that you can count on to get their own shot and make it.

I think this team is 4th best in conference (Cincy, Memphis, Houston) this year with the two waivers. Get to the semis of the conference tourney. Hopefully sneak into the tourney to get experience before next season and is a one and done. Even without the waivers, I think they drop maybe a spot or two and finish behind Witchita and Temple, but still are a solid team and get into the NIT. We have Nic and a bunch of solid players, but Shake hasn't shown up yet as option number 2.

Next year, however, I'm pretty confident Hunt develops into that stud second scoring option and this team is 1-2 in conference and has a good chance of making a run in the NCAAs. We have a lot of options who might develop into that second scorer for next season, so odds are pretty good that it happens.

10 years ago when I bought my 1st season tickets for basketball there were very small crowds and zero atmosphere. But if you were a regular you could get pretty good seats for about a grand. It appears we're back to those same days but the seats are 4 times higher minus meatballs

And that's all I have to say about that.

I'm not sure this team will compete well with our conference mates . And they need to work on free throws which has never been a strong point.

I have an appreciation for your posts Jason, but I think it is much too soon to be making some of
the predictions you have posted here. We are winning is spite of shooting badly and I think our
shooting will improve with experience. I said a month ago after the open practice that Jolly would
be very good and CJ White would be much improved. I also was impressed with the play
of ERay and thought that Bandoumel and Jolly would be more than adequate at point. Having
said all of that our rebounding needs to improve & I think it will, and our 3 point shooting has to
get much better & I think it will. Our man to man defense needs to greatly improve. As much
as I don't like us playing zone I think it won the game for us tonight.

Tyson Jolly is a talent, no doubt about it. His shot selection has been excellent and he's hitting a high percentage of his shots through the 1st 2 games. I liked what I saw from Ray who might really help us on the defensive boards. Hunt is going to be special but at times gets a little out of control. Our zone was effective last night and Mike finally started hitting 3 pointers but otherwise we have not shown that we can shoot the trey very well. It will be interesting to see how this bunch fares against stronger competition. The upcoming road game at Evansville looks like it will be a real test.

Disappointing to see so few in attendance. The announced crowd of 3,665 suggests we have more than the 1500 buying season tickets.

The average season ticket holder has 3 seats.

Wow. They were announcing 5600 last season so they lost another 2000 season tickets.

The attendance is officially back to pre-LB era. We do what we do.
It's wayyyyyyyyyyy too soon to be declaring where we wind up in AAC play. So far we've been very inconsistent against mediocre competition.
