How should I feel after this weekend if we go:

2-0 - excited?
1-1 - ok
0-2 - we’re a bottom half SBC team?

I’d be really disappointed with 2 losses to USA. They’re not a very good team. Being that arenas have no real atmosphere they’re a team we should be able to beat by 8-10.

We need a beat writer for basketball. Anyone know if the Watauga Democrat, High Country Press, or even the Appalachian serves as a beat writer? If any of them do we need to pump up their coverage.

Ken Pom has the game close to a toss up although the stats/comparisons are all wonky since Kendall isn't playing and he actually leads the team in possession usage (however KP tracks it).

I haven't watched Michael Flowers play for SA yet, but his stat line is pretty blistering by Sunbelt standards to start the year. They actually have his closest comp as Donald Sims. We've given up a lot on the perimeter and unfortunately Flowers is shooting 40% from 3pt range so that'll be interesting to watch.

As far as team rankings go...

NCAA NET App State #212, USA #216
KenPom App State #198, USA #218
RealTime RPI App State #143, USA #194

As far as 32 NCAA MBB conference rankings go...

KenPom #13 C-USA, #14 SoCon, #15 Sun Belt...just above the middle of the pack

RealTime RPI.com has App State the winner by 3 in both games. I'll take that weekend outcome in a heartbeat!

A split at the least. Possibility of winning both. Can’t lose both games. I say a split.

Active hands on defense and good ball movement so far. We look crisp at the moment.

I wish Duhart would go up strong and draw a foul or throw it down. That’s what I miss most about K Lewis.

No answer for this 2-3 zone. 2 for 11 to finish the half. Proud of the effort and defense though. Really don’t want to see Eads or Parker launch another 3 this season.

We need to pound it in inside. Feel like we can wear this team down and pull away.
