ODU @ St. Joe's
ODU (1-0) at Saint Joseph's (0-0)
Tipoff: Friday November 9 at 7:30pm eastern
Watch: ESPN+

St. Joe's finished 4th last season in the A10. They lost to the 1 seed Rhode Island in the A10 conference semifinals and did not play in the post season.

They are picked to finish 2nd this year in the A10 behind St Louis.

ESPN's predictive index gives us a 32% chance of winning.

Kenpom: ODU = 78. Saint Joe's = 106.

Blue Ribbon picks them 4th.

the coach, Martelli is expecting them to be a good squad.

Will be a very tough contest.

I could see that outcome if we get our team FG% up. Hopefully they come out cold and our warm up game gets us ready to go from the start. It'll be a good W if we get it.

I think getting a win under our belt gives us an advantage. Have already got a chance to work out kinks

They are a good team. I think they will be a favorite in the game. I believe they are a team that is better than what Blue Ribbon had them (4th), but BR did mention they expect them to compete for the AAC title.

This is likely going to be a defensive battle. If I had to pick, I think they have the edge being at home.

That'd be quite an accomplishment

While I realize this game could be difficult, it is the type of game we will have to win if we want to compete for a bid. St. Joe's is likely a first 4/NIT bubble team. We need this one on the road.

I think you hit the nail on the head. This is the type of game during the Jones era that we haven't won and need to. This would be quality road win and certainly pay dividends with all the metrics.

The fact that it's their home opener will make it tough but our first game jitters should be gone while they may still be working through some of that. This would be a huge win for us this season.

Yep. Beats playing a ton of MEAC teams OOC. At least we have a theoretical shot at an at-large bid this year if we take care of business. Our chance at a 2018 bid was shot in June 2017 when the schedule came out.

RE: ODU @ St. Joe's
You guys are quick after a win!

Friday 7:30 in Philly: St Joe’s (0-0). ESPN+

St Joe’s was picked second in the A-10 pre-season poll (4 first place votes) as they return three starters from 2017-18 (losing their top two scorers) and welcome the return of two 2016-17 starters that were injured last season. Two players, Charlie Brown and Lamarr Kimble, were picked the pre-season A-10 third team.

Returning starters (2018-18 stats)
F Taylor Funk (6-9 232 So). 29.9 min.; .378 FG (41-117 3s); .789 FT; 4.7 RB; 10.5 pts
F Pierfrancesco Oliva (6-8 215 Jr). 26.1 min.; .507 FG (13-35 3s); .531 FT; 6.1 RB; 3 assists; 6.8 pts
G Chris Clover (6-3 217 Sr). 28.3 min.; .408 FG (16-50 3s); .667 FT; 3.0 RB; 9.0 pts

Returning redshirts (2016-17 stats)
F Charlie Brown (6-7 200 So). 34.2 min.; .375 FG (71-185 3s); .819 FT; 5.0 RB; 12.8 pts
G Lamarr Kimble (6-0 182 Jr). 37.4 min.; .362 FG (40-125 3s); .696 FT; 4.0 RB; 4.5 assists; 15.5 pts

Other returners (2017-18 stats)
F Anthony Longpre (6-10 245 So). 16.3 min.; .338 FG (10-30 3s); .750 FT; 2.8 RB; 3.9 pts (9 starts)
F Lorenzo Edwards (6-7 218 So). 7.9 min.; .286 FG (3-12 3s); .000 FT; 1.0 RB; 1.4 pts (8 games)
F Markell Lodge (6-7 215 Sr). 4.8 min.; .833 FG; .333 FT; 0.8 RB; 0.9 pts (12 games)
G Toliver Freeman (6-3 215 Jr). 1.0 min.; 0.0 pts (4 games)

Rest of Roster
G Jared Bynum (5-10 172 Fr).
G Troy Holston (6-4 195 Gr). Transfer from S Florida, injured in 2017-18
G Mike Muggeo (6-3 205 Sr). Former walk-on, injured in 2017-18
G Greg Smith (6-0 183 Jr). walk-on

RE: ODU @ St. Joe's
Looks like they are inexperienced and lack depth in the backcourt. After Clover and Kimble, they have a junior that played in only 4 games last year, 2 walk-ons, a freshman, and a grad transfer. If we can get Clover or Kimble into foul trouble, we can exploit this. Also our offense needs to be slinging the ball all over the perimeter and wear them down so they have nothing left in the tank down the stretch.

Yes! The same one that Big Blue tripped and the legendary mascot fight ensued. That was awesome.
