Solid Rebound win last night but we have another huge game on Friday Night against a team that stole a win from us on a fluke last year... Let's take it to them.

Game is at 7 PM on Friday Night and will be shown on ESPN2.

Possible Starting Lineup:
G 3 Paul Jorgensen 62 185 SO New City, NY
G 13 Patricio Garino 66 210 SR Mar del Plata, Argentina
F 12 Yuta Watanabe 68 197 SO Kagawa, Japan
F 34 Tyler Cavanaugh 69 238 RS JR Syracuse, NY
F 21 Kevin Larsen 610 265 SR Copenhagen, Denmark

Their normal PG Joe McDonald missed the last game with an eye injury, I wonder if he plays on Friday. Wake Forest transfer Cavanaugh avgs 17+ Points and 7+ Rebounds a Night.

Hopefully Chuck plays.

Let's finish off the successful week in style before we, I can't believe I'm going to say this, have a showdown in Olean against SBU next Tuesday!

I Believe... Go UD!

They begin classes Monday the 18th. But it looked about 100 in the Pep band last night for the women's game. It appeared most were students with some alumni sprinkled in, so maybe students will have a presence on Friday.

will be interesting to see if either team is matches up with the other as GWs front line of Larsen, Cavanaugh and Garino is much bigger than the Flyers. On the hand Pollard, Pierre and Cooke are much quicker than the Colonials.

I'm not going to lie, this game has me concerned. I'm concerned about the match ups for this game in the interior. GW could kill us on the boards tonight. Larsen could expose McElvene.

I'd rather beat a team when at 100% but glad to see McDonald out. Any word on Cooke?

He lost the smallest guy on the court and the guy capitalized with a bucket in the paint. Ryan has to be focused like a laser on his man. I think he gets caught following the ball and not the man.

Cavanaugh and Garino 5-7 on threes is killing us right now, and of course their 8 offensive rebounds.

Pollard has been a non-factor with no rebounds and one missed shot, and a seat on the bench for not blocking out.

What a fun half of basketball to watch! Great shots, up and down action, and some nice defensive plays too. In the halfcourt O, Dayton is not settling for perimeter passing and 3's. Lots of crisp passing, penetration, and mostly good shot selection. Now let's pull away in the 2nd!

TommyGola
01-15-2016, 08:08 PM
If you are going to play a man-to-man defense then the defender must close out on the 3-ball! If not, then you are better off to play zone and cut off the dribble penetration.

Seems I've seen that called more this year than ever especially on our bigs. Not to say they werent warranted but sometimes they were close.. Larsen was shuffling around as the pick man something terrible. More irritating than anything to me
