Johnson & Wales University Wildcats (Charlotte)

JWU's Charlotte campus participates in the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) in the EMAC (Eastern Metro Athletic Conference) with four other teams. The USCAA plays non-scholarship basketball. JWU enters Trask Coliseum coming off an exhibition loss on October 30 @ Presbyterian, 95-64, followed subsequently by a USCAA win against South Carolina Faith A&M on Nov 2, 117-62.

JWU is a private, non-profit school of 12,930 students across four campus locations: Providence, RI; Miami; Denver and Charlotte. The Providence campus athletic program participates in D-III, while the North Miami and Denver campuses are in the NAIA. All 4 teams are known as the Wildcats.

The Charlotte team went 21-11 at the USCAA level last season, and acquitted themselves pretty nicely in 4 games against D-I opponents: The closest game was an 86-61 loss to Charleston Southern, and JWU also took on UNCG, The Citadel and Gardner-Webb during the 2018-19 campaign.

It's clear based on their results from last season, and so far this season, that JWU plays at a rapid pace. The team averaged 83.0 points per game for the 2018-19 season. The top 2 scorers on the team from 2018-19 are back for 2019-20 in Senior wings 6-5 Robert Hobson and 6-3 Majerle Poole.

Hobson led the team with 17.4 ppg last season, shooting .395 from the field and .366 from 3-point range. He also averaged 4.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists on the season. So far in 2019-20, he has averaged a more modest 12.0 points as his minutes are down.

Poole, who put up 14.8 ppg, .406 shooting and .338 3-point shooting while averaging 6.2 rebounds and 1.7 steals per contest in 2018-19, is off to a hot start this season. He leads the team in scoring at 19.0 ppg while playing just 20.0 minutes per contest.

Expect a fast-paced contest with JWU throwing a lot of bodies on the court. Thru 2 games they've used 17 different players, with 10 of those players averaging over 10 minutes per contest.

RE: Johnson & Wales (Charlotte campus team) - Tuesday, Nov 5
Is it wrong that this game concerns me? The usual advantage of a DI team is their size and scoring in the post, but we don't really have that. I've watched DII type teams hang with UNCW simply by launching 3 pointers and scoring at a high pace, and we've held them off by being basically unopposed in the post due to our size domination and rebounding. We don't have that advantage this year. Linssen is not an athletic big who can play at a high pace. I expect we may see a lot of Dodd who can run and present a big body. He may be the difference maker. Otherwise, we could see a lot of one on one at all other spots on the floor and we'll see if we can defend man to man like that and score with them.

I mean, yeah. I expect to win against a Culinary Arts School whose Charlotte campus team just lost by 31 to Presbyterian College.

RE: Johnson & Wales (Charlotte campus team) - Tuesday, Nov 5
I think it's all about the effort tonight. If we come out and play the way we should, it should be 30-40 point victory. From what I've heard about the UNCP game, the team lacked effort and played soft. With our size Rebounding is going to be an issue for us all season, so playing soft is the last thing we can afford to do. Last but not least, has our 3 point defense improved? Apparently this team likes to shoot a lot of threes and has a couple of guys that can fill it up. How well will we defend them or will we hear the "they made some tough shots." quote

I talked with several players and ask them flat out if this was the case and they laughed at it. Where did you hear this ? Soft and lack of effort is a very strong statement to put on a team in any game or even practice for that matter. So I would love to know who say this?

Of course the players would deny this, no one wants to hear that if you are them.

I'm not going to get into a he said/she said thing over this statement. It came from someone that was in attendance for the scrimmage and I'm not going to out the person. Honestly, I'd rather that be the case... Playing harder can be fixed, I would hate to hear that UNCP just had a more talented team than us.

That answer would be a best case scenario as an explanation for a loss. Worst case would be any other excuse.

One more question. Why in the world were you asking them that particular question? Seems like maybe others had the same impression if you heard about it to the point you asked about it. And, if they laughed it off, what did they say was the problem? Inquiring minds want to know....

Seahawks Open New Season With JWU

WILMINGTON, North Carolina – Featuring a revamped roster stocked with eight newcomers, third-year Head Coach C.B. McGrath carries his new-look Seahawks into the 2019-20 men's basketball season opener Tuesday night against Johnson & Wales.

The Seahawks, 10-23 one year ago, return only five players for the 7 p.m. tip-off at Trask Coliseum. But McGrath and his staff are optimistic about the potential of this year's club.

"The practices have been very competitive," said McGrath. "We've got a lot of guys that want to play and they're playing hard in practice. What they do in the games will determine their playing time.

"I just want us to play hard and play together. Johnson & Wales likes to get up and down the court and shoot a lot of three's. They will be really excited about playing. We just have to match their energy. We have to concentrate on not getting caught up in the opening game and the crowd. We just need to play under control, play with discipline and make the plays we've been working on every day and not have too much game slippage."

"Hopefully, we play great. We're looking forward to a good game. We know they will compete real hard…and so will we."

UNCW and JWU are squaring off for the first time in the starting leg of three straight home games to kick off the new season for the Seahawks. UNCW's first five opponents are based in North Carolina, including UNC's Tar Heels, who come to town on Friday for their debut at Trask Coliseum.

JWU is a member of the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), a national organization not affiliated with the NCAA or NAIA, but featuring non-scholarship schools. The Wildcats compete in the EMAC (Eastern Metro Athletic Conference) with four other teams.

The Wildcats opened their season last Saturday with a 117-62 throttling of South Carolina Faith A&M. JWU raced out to a 43-29 halftime lead and held the Ragin' Bulls to 37.8 percent shooting on the night. Senior guard Majerle Poole paced JWU with 19 points, while sophomore forward Zyrion Wilkins added 17 and senior guard Robert Hobson and junior forward CJ Miller chipped in 12 points.

A familiar face will be sitting on the JWU bench. Second-year JWU head coach Dan Larkin served as a student manager for former Seahawk skipper Buzz Peterson from 2010-14. He is the second former Seahawk to head up the JWU program, following in the footsteps of Lamont Franklin, who directed the first team in Wildcat history in 2010-11.

UNCW will counter with a guard-oriented lineup anchored by sophomore playmaker Kai Toews, who set UNCW and CAA records for assists in 2018-19. The Tokyo native also chipped in 8.8 points and 7.6 assists per game in a spectacular freshman season.

With top returning scorer Ty Gadsden (11.2 ppg) on the shelf until next month, the Seahawks will depend on heavy contributions from Toews and sophomore guard Jaylen Sims early in the slate. Sims collected 5.7 points and 3.0 rebounds off the bench for McGrath's club.

The Seahawks stand 43-7 lifetime against non-Division I opponents, including 35-3 at home. UNCW has won 12 in a row vs. non-Division I opponents since a 55-54 loss at Alaska-Fairbanks on Nov. 24, 1996.

The Seahawks own a 25-28 scorecard in season openers since records became available in 1963-64. The total includes a 17-7 mark at Trask Coliseum and 8-21 ledger in combined road/neutral site contests. UNCW has not lost at home in the season opener since a 63-60 defeat to UNC Charlotte on Nov. 25, 1995.

The Seahawks are opening the season on their home floor for the fourth time in the last five years. UNCW has won seven consecutive games when opening the season on its home floor and has not lost a season opener at home since Nov. 25, 1995 (63-60 vs. Charlotte).

UNCW plays 13 non-conference games before the CAA opener on Dec. 28 at Delaware. The non-conference ledger features seven home games, four road contests and two neutral site matchups.

Following Tuesday's clash, the Seahawks return to their home floor Friday to host No. 9 North Carolina in a 7 p.m. game that is already sold out.

Of note from the uncwsports.com preview and also mentioned in the Game Notes:

Quote:A familiar face will be sitting on the JWU bench. Second-year JWU head coach Dan Larkin served as a student manager for former Seahawk skipper Buzz Peterson from 2010-14.

Larkin graduated from UNCW in 2014.

Not that it matters that much, but Estime is 6'5", not 6'3".
