Re: Around the League


So, the NET has not updated today but the teams sheets are showing that VCU moved from 36 to 32 in the NET rankings. It shows the win last night against Mason. That is looking comfortable so if someone slaps down VCU in Brooklyn it is looking like two bids.

VCU needs to do their part and take one for the team, especially if they see Bonaventure

Tremaine Isabell from Saint Louis and Fats Russell from URI named Co-Players of the Week in the A-10. Dayton's Obi Toppin wins Rookie of the Week for seventh time.

Re: Around the League

VCU's top 5 rated defense is the sum of all it's parts but the stats show at least one VCU player should be on that all-defensive team.

Re: Around the League

Awards look fine to me. Only quibble might be no Jared Bynum on all rookie, but whatever.

JAG took an official to SJU and Phil let him slip through his hands. A couple month later he was a Davidson commit. Just awful stuff.

My only issue is the defensive team. Numbers and the eye test supports several VCU players.

I also do not get Kier being most improved. His numbers are almost identical to last season.

Improvements per game:
Santos-Silva: 6.4 pts 4 reb
Langevine: 8.5 pts 4.1 reb
Cayo: 10.6 pts 1.7 reb
Kier: 2.9 pts 1.9 reb

He's shooting much much better from 3 and grabbing a couple more boards per 36. That's about it.

Excellent team defense is hard to quantify. Utah Jazz and Pacers just grind their opponents to dust and I think I could name two or three excellent individual defenders between both teams. Ditto for the Bucks.

I know I will not change your mind but the efficiency ratings have four VCU players all near the top in every category. It is excellent team defense that is 5th in the nation. Several of those players are top notch defenders. Hey, it's all good. It is about team anyway.
