MyBB MBB Game 1 - Towson 11/10 7:00
I am certainly not the only person excited for hoops to tip-off Friday. Today's exhibition gave us as much reason for optimism as a game against CNU possibly could.

Last year we defeated Towson on the road 60-58. They lost two of their top three scorers from that team; however, they are returning four players who averaged over 20 minutes per game. They are not inexperienced.

What do y'all think the keys to this season are? I believe we need efficient production in the half court from Xavier Green and Randy Haynes. It's also imperative that Trey Porter and Brandan Stith stay out of early foul trouble.

Fun fact: Old Dominion holds the all-time series lead over Towson 22-2.

from what I saw today, I doubt Towson gives us much trouble on Friday.

Towson is a good team. This likely will not be an easy win. How can out of towners see the game? I don't see anything by the listing in the schedule and also don't see it listed on CUSA.tv.

I believe all home games will be on CUSA TV although not on schedule yet. They really need to work on the production. It was awful today.

Here are the stats from Towson's charity game vs Bucknell. Bucknell went 26-9 last year and lost to 4 seed West Virginia in the tournament 86-80.

Something that scares me: Towson's free throws actually work. 22-28 this game.

Towson only went 3-14 from behind the arc.

Look Towson might be a decent CAA team. Thats it. Lets stop acting like they are something special. We will win this game and I think convincingly. We are not putting up 100 but I think our offense will be fun to watch this year. We lost 2 good defenders who were complete offensive liabilities in Baker and Taylor. We will shoot the ball much better this year

ODU 83
Towson 61

It will be a tough game. They are very physical. Have to play good defense and not foul. Make them stand out there and bomb away from the 3 point line.

Something I can just copy/paste all season long: Brandan and Porter staying out of foul trouble will be a major factor with this game
