ESPN article - A10 season primer

http://espn.go.com/mens-college-bask...ege-basketball

POY - Treveon Graham - VCU

ROY - Willie Clayton - Charlotte

Revised predictions:

1. VCU: The Rams' stifling "HAVOC" defense will make their new league mates miserable all season.
2. St. Louis: With Kwamain Mitchell back, the Billikens' brand of smart, hard-nosed, slow-paced basketball will be just as effective as last season.
3. Temple: If the defense keeps trending in the right direction, look out.
4. Butler: The Bulldogs have done a massive offensive 180 from last season, and Brad Stevens is one of the best coaches in the country.
5. Saint Joseph's: The jury is still very much out.
6. La Salle: Ramon Galloway is one of the best players you've never heard of; La Salle is one of the sneakier tournament hopefuls in this mix.
7. Charlotte: The 49ers aren't pretty, and they're not as good as 12-2 would seem to say, but they defend and rebound well enough to convert nonbelievers en masse.
8. Dayton: You never know what you're going to get with Dayton, but Archie Miller has some intriguing young talent to work with.
9. Xavier: The Musketeers are young and learning on the job. This is a rare real-deal rebuilding year for Chris Mack & Co.
10. UMass: As an avowed Chaz Williams fan, I'm tempted to make the Minutemen a top-half regular-season sleeper. But their efficiency numbers tell a different, far less flattering story.
11. Richmond: Chris Mooney is still rebuilding with a trio of sophomores who can really score the ball, but the Spiders don't guard anyone yet.
12. St. Bonaventure: Seniors Demitrius Conger, Chris Johnson and Eric Mosley offer scoring punch, but the Bonnies have too many other issues.
13. George Washington: Good news: The Colonials have one of the 35 best per-possession defenses in the country. Bad news: They can't throw it in the ocean.
14. Rhode Island: First-year coach Dan Hurley already has the Rams playing better and harder than last season's miserable seven-win campaign, but there's a long way to go yet.
15. Duquesne: The Dukes have a frosh to watch in Derrick Colter, and that's about it.
16. Fordham: When VCU came from the CAA, the A-10 should have traded Fordham. It probably would have been better for everyone.

Sure hope Rhody's improvements bump them up to be Brooklyn-bound.

Not sure who the 3 sophomores are that are referenced in the Richmond blurb ( 11. Richmond: Chris Mooney is still rebuilding with a trio of sophomores who can really score the ball, but the Spiders don't guard anyone yet. )

We have one sophomore who can score - Kendall Anthony.

^^^Well, Zach Chu is still shooting 75% from three on the year.

He makes Brothers and his ridiculous 55% shooting from deep look bad.

Re: ESPN A10 season primer

Wait, aren't Brad Reford, Rotnei Clark and Kellen Dunham the best shooters of ALL TIME?

Numbers don't lie.

He was on crutches in our last game, so can't rely on his .00001 ppg.
