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.

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.

Question:

I was flipping around looking at different stuff last night and I ran across part of Bama's game.  The announcer was screaming "Shackleford goes to the rim..." 

Shackleford?  Isn't that guy like 45?  He's been there since the 80s.

After a lackluster performance against the South Florida Bulls, the 3-0 Tigers take the show on the road to face Connecticut.  The Huskies are ranked #22 at 4-0.  Their closest win has been by 24 points, but they've played who's who of nobody's from Binghamton to Coppin State.  Still, they've taken care of business like a good team should.

Time to see if Bruce's boys have the chutzpah to come out with a win against the Pups.

So, 1-1 in Atlantis with a 3rd game today at 3:30.

This team obviously needs time to gel, as they are making tons of unforced errors and just generally are not in sync.

That said, each individual piece is very exciting.  The guards are tenacious defenders and WG and KD are fearless shooters.  WG loves that Jared Harper 26 foot 3-ball.  Can't wait til Allen Flanigan gets to join this group.

How about this lineup at forward: Jabari Smith (6'10"/220), Jaylin Williams (6'8"/230), Chris Moore (6'6"/240)...and then THIS guy runs with them when he's not swatting shots under the rim: Walker Kessler (7'2"/245).

And camped out low: the aforementioned Walker, along with Stretch (6'10"/245) and Dylan Cardwell (6'11"/250).

All that size out there makes me moist.

We took UConn to double OT and lost, then rebounded with a relatively easy win over Loyola-Chi.  Syracuse will be another legit test today and another chance for these guys to build chemistry.

This team will make a LOT of noise in the conference this year, so get on board early.

Oh, also Bama lost to Rick Pitino's Iona squad (ranked 140 by KenPom).  So, HAHA.

UCF comes in tomorrow night.  This team is pretty damn good.  4-1 with a win over Miami, and the only loss being a 3 point win for Oklahoma.  Better bring that A game.

The last 5 out of 6 are at home before starting the SEC slate against LSU.  Hope Flanigan is back and ready to contribute by then.

Quotes from Sir Bruce on tonight's game with UCF

"This will be the second-best team we've played against behind probably UConn, and it's the best defensive team we've played against so far," Pearl said. "They're one of the oldest teams in college basketball – a lot of juniors and seniors, a lot of fourth- and fifth-year guys. Last year we didn't play Darius Perry, who is arguably their best player.
"This is a much better team than we played a year ago. We'll have to continue to improve."
