Not really sure what to take form this W. Obviously it's good to get a w, and we shot the ball well but without much contention. Giving up 81 to a D3 school could be a concern but tough to say as clearly the bench players got a lot of minutes.

I hate we are playing Davidson so early on the schedule, but we will see real fast where this team is. Not expecting a W, but hoping for a competitive showing. With Talley and Cacock on the floor we should be at least decent. Concern is when they come out.

Numbers Ty Taylor has been putting up look pretty bad. How did he look on the court?

Ty had an off night shooting, but looked good in other aspects of his game. The biggest surprise for me was Talley's 3 point and passing accuracies.
This team has a lot of work to do to challenge in the CAA. And I don't expect them to beat Davidson at this point. Anytime Cacok goes out will be a huge dropoff. Kalina has a nice shooting touch, but he is too soft right now and doesn't have good hands. But maybe I'm spoiled by Cacok. Hoping Elmore has improved immensely. We are thin down low.

A competitive game would be a plus vs Davidson. We know our D is going to get a huge test next Sat Vs Cambell and Clemons, he had 39 in their opener Vs Penn State!

Oh, and i could do without the Carolina Blue tie!!!! Coach your color is TEAL now!

Ty is really quick and athletic so he might be part of the solution. If he's hitting shots, hit can help you, but can still help if he prudently attacks the cup. Fornes has good ability and should definitely be part of the equation. Richmond has good quicks and a nice game so he will help. Heck, Jacque Brown looked like he can play as well. Talley is the man. It's good to have the 2 freshmen guards/wings off the bench to blend. They have size and both will be good players-both can shoot and will eventually be consistent over time. Two guys that can get their own offense at this point looks to be Talley and Brown-haven't seen enough of Ty, but he and Jaquel have the quicks for sure. I'm sure that Gary can also and probably Estime, but both are freshman that won't likely be trying to do something late in the clock very much.

As far as bigs go, yes, we are thin there right now for his preferred style. That "preferred" style may not be the best thing until Matt gets back when we go to the bench. It may seem odd to some, but I wouldn't mind seeing Powell get a look in a 4 guard set. He's a really good ball player with size that can stroke it. He efficiently scored 8 points in 9 minutes with an assist/no TO last night and seemed to always make the right basketball play. He gives up size at 6'6" but is pretty solidly built. Hawks seemed to do good with Flemings. Not saying that he's at Chris's level (they have different games), but he showed that he can efficiently give you double figures (not part of the scouting report, I get that, but still homeboy looked good). Heck, even some hustling minutes from Etoroma was cool to see-he's a pretty good athlete.

Kalina actually exceeded my expectations.

He may not be a "force", but the man had 9 points, 4 blocks, and 2 rebounds in 16 minutes of play. That's worthy of a mention.

Anybody guessing the line against Davidson? I'd say that it starts at 8 points after the beat down of Charleston Southern. They might be really good this year. They didn't look good to me last year but their coach is fantastic! I've always been a big fan of his and have used some of his stuff with my coaching over the years.

70's,
He does have a really good touch out there. That left handed shot was awesome and surprising. His defense is the only thing. The 4 blocks is a positive surprise-I remember 2 of them.

RE: Saturday (11/11) Opponent: North Carolina Wesleyan
Based on the outside shot of Cacock at this point, i'd like to see him stay at the 5 and play at the rim. I I could see Powell on the court with him at the 4, with Fornes at the 3, Gary shooting guard and Talley at point. Powell plays hard, and if his shot is for real, he could be tough at that 4 spot.

When Elmore comes back, i'd put him in for Powell. Sorry, not to pick on anyone but Bryan doesn't look like he has improved at all and I just don't like him in the game. He doesn't do anything another player can't. I'd bring in Kalina for Cacock simply because of his size and he at least can score. And, I don't like Bryan and Cacock on the floor together, since Bryan just clogs up the middle.

IMO, we can be a top 4 team based on just one game. Cacock and Talley alone put us there.

Frankly, with a DIII team putting up that many points, I wouldn't single out Kalina for his underwhelming defensive performance. The whole team is going to have to tighten up alot before Tuesday...
