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.

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

RE: MBB Game 1 - Towson 11/10 7:00
Friday 7:00 at the Ted: Towson (20-13 2016-17).

Stats (16-17): 74.6 pts (vs 69.3); .450 FG (.312 3s); .685 FT; +8.1 RB; A/TO= 0.82

Starters (Bucknell). 16-17 stats
F Justin Gorham (6-7 230 So). 10.8 min.; .522 FG; .452 FT; 3.0 RB; 2.9 pts (2 starts)
G Mike Morsell (6-5 210 Sr). 27.1 min.; .438 FG (47-141 3s); .769 FT; 3.2 RB; 13.6 pts (26 starts)
G Zane Martin (6-4 205 So). 14.2 min.; .394 FG (17-51 3s); .739 FT; 1.8 RB; 5.5 pts (1 start)
G Eddie Keith (6-5 240 Sr). 22.6 min.; .453 FG (22-54 3s); .510 FT; 3.6 RB; 4.8 pts (13 starts)
G Brian Starr (6-3 185 Sr). 24.3 min.; .429 FG (19-72 3s); .638 FT; 2.1 RB; 1.9 assists; 10.1 pts (22 starts)

Bench
G Jordan McNeil (6-5 192 Jr). 10.4 min.; .435 FG (15-43 3s); .615 FT; 3.0 pts (3 starts)
F Thomas Alex (6-9 265 Jr). 16.0 min.; .500 FG; .560 FT; 4.3 RB; 3.0 pts (30 starts)
G Travis Ingram (6-3 177 Fr).
G Jeffrey Prophete (6-2 185 Fr).

Note that Towson’s graduated their top two RBers who also scored 24.6 pts/g.

In the Bucknell game Justin Gorham scored 21 pts (10-12 FG) with 10 RB along with preseason all-CAA Mike Morsell (6-13 FG, 8-9 FT). Despite a high scoring game (93-86); TU only had 11 assists in 34 made baskets and was only 3-14 on 3-pointers. Thomas Alex had 12 pts (5-6 FG) in 17 mins off bench and will likely play more vs Stith/Porter (possible start). Deshaun Morman (6-3 190 Sr) was all-defense CAA in 2016-17 although he DNP vs Bucknell.

Probably not what they were expecting to see.

Towson is a very good; under-the-radar type team. Which means, if we do anything less than beat them by 15, this board will meltdown.

If we beat them by more than 15, this season will be very special. Towson is a very good team. I know the CAA is not as good as it was, but any team contending for the top of their league is a good team.

I predict that ODU wins by about eight, pulling away late (would be 13 with decent FT shooting).

No line that I've seen yet but ESPN's game predictor thing has ODU with a 61.5 percent chance of winning.

That would suggest about a 2.5-3 point favorite.
