Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

Just got an email from the UVM ticket office announcing the "Basketball Season Ticket pick up event" on Monday, Oct. 17, at 5pm. "Pizza, raffles, and meet your 2016-17 basketball teams." I can't eat the pizza, never win raffles, and don't want to accost the players, but I'll probably go anyway. At least it's a start, right?

The women's team recently announced an open practice, but I haven't seen a similar announcement for the men. Anyone heard of one?

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

I'm most excited to see Henson this year and how much Everett Duncan has improved. He is suppose to be a gym rat like his brother. I don't see any minutes for him but maybe he will earn them.

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

UVM Menís Basketball Scrimmage

saw 15-20 minutes of drills, then two 10-minute scrimmages. Looked like they were getting ready to play another 10-minutes or more but I had to leave.

Observations:

1. nice up-tempo offensive pace
2. nice ball movement for so early in preseason
3. upper bodies suggest most have been pumping iron this summer.
4. Ernie was suited but didnít play; he had a splint on his right wrist and thumb
5. TBH had a bandaged right wrist but played a lot and looked good, especially getting to the rim (as we saw last season)
6. both Tulane boys looked good, both inside and outside
7. Shungu was impressive: played with confidence, good ball-handling and passing
8. Anthony appears to be Div-I ready. Nice outside shooting and attacking the rim. Will be surprised if he doesnít start. Looks confident.
9. Cam might have been injured: he didnít play much.
10. Dingba is very mobile but thin as a rail. Seems like heíll be a defensive specialist.
11. Drew was a force inside; made a few mistakes but overall was very offensive-minded, and finished well
12. Steidl and Wills didnít play a lot in the scrimmage. Steidl didn't miss many 3-pt shots during the drills.
13. Darren moved well in the paint and took his short jumper.
14. didnít see Dalrimple, Nate, Urso or Everett D. do too much in the scrimmage
15. Josh was suited; during the drills he was on the sideline working with someone on his left-hand ball handling. When the scrimmages started, he was in the huddles and interacting frequently with the players when they came off the floor.
16. didnít do an exact headcount but I estimate 30-40 fans watching the scrimmage.

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

Thanks for the observation, sounds positive overall. Hopefully Ernie's injury will not keep him out of action too long. He really came on strong at the end of last year. It's good to hear the Tulane transfers looked good. I'm really looking forward to seeing Lamb in action too.

Thank you for attending and posting observations.

Really excited to see Lamb. Think he has potential to be a beast in this conference. Saw him up close and he's a lot taller than I thought he would be. Sounds like Henson going to help fill some of the void that Ethan left.

Think Steidl is poised for a big senior year. In addition to Ernie playing excellent down the stretch last season, thought Steidl really finished year strong and got more consistent.

Per earlier e-mail from UVM athletics, Wills, Steidl, and TBH named the captains.

Wills has only played 1 full season thus far, his sophomore year. Hoping he gets to play in every game his senior year.

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

Lamb was not present at the ticket pick-up event?

Ernie has a wrist sprain and should be back in action within a month.

The rest of the guys looked healthy.

I'm impressed with the size of Kian from Long Island. He looks a legit 6'4

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

Urso and Urquhart were not there either.

Just watched the team intro. video. We are REALLY DEEP!

I know we are the favorites to win this conference but I really think Dre Wills is critical to get back to the dance.

He needs to bring steady leadership, hard nosed defense, and smart decisions with the ball. It's no secret his junior year was a disappointment. He needs to get his mojo back.

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

Wills will be starting, he's a senior captain. I also think Payen gets the start.

Starting 5:

TBH
Steidl
Wills
Payen
Henson

Re: 2016 - 2017 Vermont Catamounts

Becker said that a few players had class and couldn't make it.

It used to be that starters were obviously better than bench players and would stay on the floor until they were really sucking wind. With this team I don't think that is the case. There might be some honor associated with starting but here is going to be a lot of substituting.
