Don't look for a lopsided win tonight.  Morehead was 23-8 last season and made the tourney.  Auburn slopped around in their exhibition game against a Division II opponent, going down 9-0 before waking up. 

We have a butt load of new faces who haven't played together and may take a little time to gel.

USI isn't a slouch of a D2 school, they were picked to win the GLVC, one of the top D2 basketball conferences.  They've got 5 guys who played D1 last season.

Their head coach, an alum of USI, was the D2 player of the year when Bruce was coach, in the year they won the national championship.  I love that Pearl gets places like USI some love by scheduling these games with them.

But like Buzzy said, they ain't no Barry.

Thank God we were able to buy out that contract and get him off the schedule.

Bruce said that he's scheduled USI at every school he's coached.

So...size all over the court.  Nice.

Aggressive defense from all positions.  Nicer.

Trio of guards with shot-creating ability.  Nicer still.

I'm amazed at how Bruce can get his teams to commit to defense, but he fucking manages that.  Lots of full-court press last night that paid dividends over and over.

I'm a little concerned about Kessler spending so much time out in 3-land cranking shots when he should live under the basket, but I guess he earns those shots with so much defense under the rim.

Almost had a heart attack when Smith went to the floor.

Future is bright, kids.  Gonna be a fun year.

I couldn't pick it up, so I have no idea how they looked. (Edit....just saw where Wes covered that)  Sounds like they stayed in control from the start.  It was nice to have a game on just about every channel, so I could flip around and check a lot of teams out. 

Tennessee looked good and rained 3's at a record pace.  Foggy Shit For Brains, Justin Powell, was right in the middle of it. 

Kansas looked like their usual athletic self in a fairly easy win against Michigan State. 

Duke and Kentucky beat on each other all night.  UK has a beast under the boards.  Wide body bro who transferred from West Virginia and had about 8 rebounds in the first 10 minutes.

Heard Jay Bilas say UCLA is the best team in America.  Horse hockey.  They just got on a Cinderella run to the Final 4 last season.  Gonzaga has their usual 28-3 regular season team that will get that shit packed at some point in the tourney.

Memphis officially has the worst looking court in all of basketball.  Even Scott Van Pelt was making fun of it.  Pure ass!

Surprisingly Hulu had the ESPN+ games (I think it came with a Disney+ subscription).  The quality of the broadcast was pooooooooooooooooooor, though.   Bad lag/buffer, horrible commercial/half breaks.  Just ass.

Good first game, lots to build on.  Little concerned that from the 4min mark of the first half, Morehead went on a 30-15 run, and judging by how loud Bruce was during a timeout, he was a little concerned, too.

Thought we gave up too many offensive rebounds - was a little shocked that Kessler didn't box out better - but I think all of that is fixable, and have complete faith in Bruce to fix it.

 Rain and GH were railing on some screeching hyena of a woman close to the broadcast table all night.

God she was fucking awful.

At least she wasn't joined by that asshole who hollers during the entire broadcast.  Though, I presume he'll make an appearance as the season progresses.
