Because I thought Kalu was the best player on the team at the end of last year. I hoped that Dickens would hit the weight room and get stronger. By what other on here had been saying about Reece I thought he would only compliment the other two.

By best player at the end of last year I assume you were speaking of returning players. What about Green? I do agree with your statements on Dickens and Reece. I was hoping to see Dickens put at least a little bit more bulk on that skinny frame.

Not any more. I turn on the games to witness a 19-2 run for MD. Mason cant do anything against the MD zone.

MD defeats GMU 86-63 last night. At least we will be more rested than them? Not sure if that matters much

Almost a must win, imo.

It will happen - I say the kids regroup find some cohesiveness and make it to the final game ...

Like I said, I thought Kalu was the best player on the team at the end of last year (yes, those coming back). I thought and still think he is capable of that level. He needs an attitude adjustment. Needs to play smarter and intimidating! Dickens is fading fast. Kalu would be starting if I were the coach and so would Wade. Dickens and Carver come off the bench. Hell, I would even consider a starting line-up of: Curry, Wade, Green, Ezipke & Dickens.

Monday 5:00 in George Town: GMU (5-1). FloHoops.

Results to date: Navy (68-55 OT); Longwood (76-65); LIU (80-74); SMU (83-70); Loyola, Md (65-61); Maryland (63-86).

Last game: GMU started well, up 29-24 with 6:24 in the first half, but Maryland closed the half 19-2 and cruised to victory. GMU struggled both from deep (6-22) and inside (-14 RB, -12 PIP). AJ Wilson led the Patriots with 19 pts (6-12 FG, 1-2 3s, 6-8 FT), Jamal Hartwell had 13 (4-10, 2-2, 3-5 FT) and Javon Greene 11 pts, 7 RBs and 4 assists.

Stats: 72.5 pts (vs 68.5); .416 FG (.320 3s); .688 FT; +2.0 RB; A/TO= 1.1

Starters
F AJ Wilson (6-7 210 Jr). 27.5 min.; .429 FG (1-4 3s); .613 FT; 8.3 RB; 3.7 blocks; 12.3 pts
F Greg Calixte (6-8 225 Jr). 16.7 min.; .600 FG; .200 FT; 3.5 RB; 3.2 pts
G Jordan Miller (6-6 190 So). 28.3 min.; .517 FG (5-12 3s); .783 FT; 4.3 RB; 13.8 pts
G Javon Greene (6-2 190 Jr). 31.5 min.; .353 FG (15-43 3s); .765 FT; 7.3 RB; 3.7 assists; 7.3 pts
G Jamal Hartwell (5-10 155 So). 36.7 min.; .361 FG (14-40 3s); .684 FT; 3.0 RB; 13.2 pts

Bench
G Xavier Johnson (6-1 185 Fr). 24.8 min.; .485 FG (3-13 3s); .789 FT; 4.2 RB; 8.3 pts
F Gonar Mar (6-7 215 Jr). 19.3 min.; .353 FG (1-9 3s); 1.000 FT; 2.8 RB; 3.5 pts
F Josh Oduro (6-9 235 Fr). 12.5 min.; .524 FG; .800 FT; 2.8 RB; 4.3 pts

GMU was picked 9th pre-season A-10. Pre-season 2nd team G Justin Kiel is out with a stress fracture. GMU started the season 5-0 (all at home) for the first time ever. GMU utilizes co-PGs and will play a 1-2-2 zone at times. The PGs are both snipers- Greene 43/68 FGA from 3; Hartwell 40/72. GMU has excelled defensively holding opponents to .396 FG and .250 from 3 (#23 NCAA). The have also been strong on ORBs (#22 NCAA). Finally GMU blocks 5.7 shots/g (#30 NCAA). Note AJ Wilson avgs 3.7 blocks (#6 NCAA) and 4.5 ORBs (#12 NCAA).

I like that we look loose/having fun after such a heartbreaking loss. What a great recruiting tool to be able to offer an annual Caribbean trip to our players (or other desirable tournament location). I have only been to the Caribbean once in my life for my honeymoon. And it was an awesome trip.

That means we beat Mason and either Nebraska or Washington State so I hope so

As much as we leave outside shooters open as we pack the lane they could kill us.

I was getting ready to say the same thing. Just ask JMU.

ODU left JMU too many open looks from 3. One or more guys that had shot poorly till that game had a strong shooting night against ODU. Same thing happened when ODU played St. Joe's. ODU collapses hard in the paint against drives and leaves outside shooters open, especially in the corners. Stats are a useful tool, but they don't necessarily provide an accurate story of what will happen.
