Tobias Harris must be taking care of his little brother's team.

Nunn puts up 40 in an exhibition game for Oakalnd vs. CMU. Ouch.

We play them twice.

Ehh it's CMU. Raven dropped 50 on them. I'm not reading too much into it.

Glad we are playing them twice, though. It'll be great preparation for MAC play.

Yes, that would be my guess as well.

Backups. Bond can back up Jackson at PG (02-13-banana), Nobles backs up Minnie and Groce behind Bond (Bond the SF). McAdoo in the back court.

Still trying to get a feel for front court backups (I haven't switched over from FB to MBB thinking yet).
Don't forget Ellison. Interested in seeing how well he does at PG.

Indeed. 'Cause it effects the backup PG which we assume to be Bond.

If Ellison is a good frosh then that changes the calculus as a number of positions (does Bond have to back anyone up?). Would Murphy want to run 3 different PGs, Jackson, Ellison and Bond???

When would Murphy prefer the tall Bond over the short Ellison behind Jackson?

Will it be one of those situations where it is based on 'match ups?"

In Murphy's 3rd thru 5th season, he had top 1/4 talent in the conference and finished somewhere between 7-9 conference wins.

Conclusion: Murphy's system is an enabler to overachieve with lesser talent or underachieve with more talent and win 7-9 conference games.

I predict we win 7-9 conference games.

Reflecting back on my post before the season started, it appears we will win closer to 9 games.

How'd your prediction turn out?

If all I cared about was my prediction I guess I'd be happy.

Predicted 18-13.

Currently 16-11 with four games remaining.

They did better than I expected in the OOC season, but weaker in conference play.
