Anyways, Iati is obviously a terrific shooter and shooting the heck out of the ball- my preference between the two would be Papale though because he's taller and his technique/form is textbook.

It's also misleading to point out Papale benefits from Irving/Watson without mentioning Iati benefits from Mike Black and Guerrier- two players that both shot very well last season- Guerrier shot over 40% from 3, and Black is probably off to the most impressive start offensively in the conference.
Iati shot 46.5 percent from 3 last season, he's put together a large enough sample size to know he's legit... Obviously iati benefits from guerrier in the sense that he'd be worse off without him on the floor and a lesser player in his place, but to imply that he is in the same boat as Papale simply isn't true. Iati is one of two marked players on Albany, he is the second biggest focus of opposing defenses, Papale is not. Iati's usage rate and touches are significantly higher. papale is a great shooter, right now he is benefitting from being a much lesser focus of opposing defenses.

I'm not trying to say Iati is not legit- he definitely is, and I would expect usage and FG attempts to be the case when comparing a senior starter playing more versus a freshman coming off the bench in his first couple college games.

That being said, you can already see increased minutes for him and the the word is out on Papale not to leave him alone after these first few games and coaches will change their defenses accordingly.

Re: America East Gameday: 11/20

I wouldnt say 1 is much better than the other but I'd take Iati as a senior and clutch factor. They are both great shooters but UVM Hoop Cat saying Papale is easily the best shooter is way off. Neither 1 is easily the best anything.

This may be a little off topic, but watching Iati in the AE tournament game last year, he was obviously a defensive liability. I mean to the point that he was hurting his team by being on the floor in a close game. I actually felt bad for the kid and the team. His guy scored like every possession in crunch time. He may be a clutch shooter, but sometimes you can't keep guys like that on the floor.

Re: America East Gameday: 11/20

Papale is dangerous. If I'm defending BU and he's on the court, I want the shot to come from anywhere else but him and I also do not want to leave him open for a second.

Plus, his technique/form is text book. That probably has me biased in his favor.
