GO A-10!

You’d think the way Leemire played this week he would of gotten more than an honorable mention. You’d also think with the many freshmen we have this year that one of them would be “A10 Freshmen of The Week” anyways still good to be mentioned

Thanks for the info Run!

Other than the game winning shot, Leemire played very poorly versus UIC. Fourteen points from a 2 guard that played 37 minutes is not going to get you player of the week. Andersen had almost as many points in 20 minutes of play.

Have to remember the competition played. I’d like to think our opponents were better then any of theirs. N. Iowa is respectable and UW-GB has fielded good teams, but I think I’d take App and HPU over them this year… N. Iowa is the only one I wouldn’t.

Don’t know if our UIC game would have been included this week, but if it was I can agree with your reasoning. I won’t complain about not getting any of the weekly nods. Just give me the W’s.

I like the way Dewhurst rebounded after a poor outing offensively against GaTech. He was only 1-3, but he got to the line and shot well. He also had 5 rebounds and two assists with no turnovers. It is a shame that he and Anjuan are sharing a position for 4 years. I think that next year he might work his way into the starting lineup. Wilderness is too strong defensively to not start, but if Dewhurst can find a solid shot, he will be a player we have to have on the floor.

Clearly Phil Jones gained a lot of confidence in the UIC game but I think Dewhurst did too. In the post-game interview on 1660 Dewhurst said that he did gain a lot of confidence… as long as we are improving from game to game we are going to be a force in conference play.

Um, I think Andersen was the one being interviewed/said that.

If Temple doesn’t collapse in the 2nd half of the Providence and Charleston games (which they wouldn’t be playing Charleston if they had beaten PC) Christmas wins POW award.

UGH!!

Damn that looks familiar. Worst shooting, by far the worst 3pt defense, and good rebounding.

On paper, this team looks eerily familiar. But on the court…

One thing to note about the shooting percentages:

Charlotte: 86 of 214
Opponents: 76 of 156

Our opponents have had less opportunities to put the ball in the basket. It’s just that their shots go in most of the time. (ESPECIALLY beyond the arc)

We win by turning the other team over and rebounding, not by forcing bad shots.
