I think it is more like 3 guys who can really handle and pass to break the full court press. You get two guards and potentially a forward who can really handle the ball, make good decisions and pass well, and I think you become immune to the full court press.

I just donít think it makes sense. Mali played great last year. Elvis may not be our preference, but he has experience at the point. Mike is young, but people who have watched him play are impressed. For a host of reasons, folks on this board donít want to accept the evaluations. The one that sticks out is the assumption that he canít play PG because of his height. Weíve never had a 6í8Ē PG before, so he canít do the job. People disregard that heís already had to overcome the doubts because of his size. Itís easy to doubt. Itís also easier to let them doubt. AG seems to think weíre ok at the point. Me? I see a starting PG who played awesome last year. I see a back up PG who was serviceable (much better than in most years). We have a top 100 guy as our 3rd option. When did we have better depth at PG?

Youíre neglecting the elephant in the room. Itís Maliís durability. Scootch and Crutch were incredibly durable which lead to our team success. Mali was injured 2x last year not to mention in a boot this summer. Availability is the best ability. I truly hope he stays healthy, otherwise it likely wonít be pretty.

He played in EVERY regular season game and played in 33 of 35 games. He played the second most minutes of anybody on the roster. You’re bringing up durability? LMAO.

You’ve been one of the loudest naysayers about the PG depth all off season. Stop trying to make fetch a thing…

Fudd, I say the 2 further up court have to find space and come to the ball. You have to punish the aggressive team by scoring on the other end. So, yes, you can have 3 guys who are your primary guys in getting the ball past half court. The other 2 have to attack on the offensive end. Punish the aggressorís aggression. Also, Iím a big proponent of using the pass since a pass moves faster than any player. Movement and passing can make aggressive teams very vulnerable.

I don't know what "make fetch a thing" is, pardon my ignorance, is that a Chevy Chase reference? Anyway, I'm one of the least negative posters and more than likely an over-positive poster (koolaid drinker etc.) on this board. It's my concern, like it or not.

This upcoming season has huge implications for the program with realignment discussions and the changing college landscape. My feelings are simply that we really need to make serious noise this year, and if Mali goes down...well, you obviously witnessed what happened last year. Can Mike be good? Absolutely. Lead us deep into the tourney? Likely not, but I'd sure love to see it. I pray they all stay healthy, especially Mali and DaRon.

HahaÖitís from Mean Girls Just a little levity.

Seriously, I think we all share your concern about Mali going down. Itís just that I donít know what could be done about it. If it happens, it happens.

What I do know is that any 5th yr senior who might have signed up for back up duties isnít going to save the day either. So, everyone who continues to harp on this is wasting their time. And, last pointÖwe donít know if AG tried to get some ďrent a PGĒ but no one bit.

I happen to think that Elvis and Mike can cover for periods if Mali is out. If itís long term, Iím not sure there would have been an answer in any situation.

My other point is that Mali is a strong dude and is definitely not injury prone. He played a lot of minutes last year. If you are worried about him getting injured you need to find something else to worry about.

@jakeweingarten

Hearing Daytonís Mali Smith has taken a massive leap headed into his sophomore campaign. Heard heís become a huge vocal leader, has been terrific in practice as well. Could expect elite playmaking out of the Flyersí PG this season.

Agree and don't think that a healthier Elvis hasn't matured and improved not only as an overall SG but with his PG duties as well. I won't say UD endured a hard dose of reality when Mal went down because Elvis simply was not the PG Mal was and there's not a person on here that shouldn't have expected a let down.

There's probably not a handful of teams in the country, if that many, that could handle the loss of your top 2 top PG's going into the season and not suffered, especially losing your starter **** near the last game of the season in tourney action.

Any insight as to when the full A-10 schedule will be released, including the date and times for each game. I'm really itching to schedule a few away trips for this year.

5 Freshmen who could outplay their ranking

https://basketballrecruiting.rivals....-their-ranking

Michael Sharavjamts, Dayton

Rivals150 ranking: 98

Sharavjamts may honestly be high school basketball’s best-kept secret in the 2022 class. At 6-foot-8, he has legitimate guard skills and a great overall feel for the game as a ball mover and initiator. His shot has also become very consistent and, upside-wise, it wouldn’t surprise to see him be on NBA Draft boards at some point this season.

Dayton is going to have a very fun roster this season with Sharavjamts, DaRon Holmes, Toumani Camara and Malachi Smith. The Flyers could make some noise come March, and Sharavjamts could be a huge reason why.

This situation with Mike, his country, his b-ball exposure has the feel of something bigger developing at warp speed. It will grow quickly with our great schedule that Neal has put together. It will be a story line that follows us around the country.

If Amzil plays more like two years ago than last year, coupled with Smith and Holmes improvement, the sky is the limit for this team. Camara, Elvis, Blakeney, Brea, & Mike make for a very solid top 8. Iím also hopeful for both noticeable improvement from Washington and getting either Amafuele or Baker to bring the team more than Sissoko did last year.

St Louis will be very good. Itís going to be a horse race for the A10 championship between the two.

Dayton stays at #22 in ESPN's latest Way-Too-Early Top 25.
Dayton announced its nonconference schedule earlier this month, and it's again a slate that allows the Flyers several chances at rťsumť-boosting victories. There's a home game against SMU, road trips to UNLV and Virginia Tech, as well as a neutral-site game against Wyoming. On top of all that, Anthony Grant's team is in the Battle 4 Atlantis, where it will open against Wisconsin and then face either Kansas or NC State. On paper, Dayton is likely the third-best team in the field, meaning it could end up playing USC in the third game of that tournament.
It's a difficult stretch, but the Flyers' top-25 credentials will be tested before Atlantic 10 play -- although, as mentioned many times this offseason, beating good teams wasn't Dayton's issue last season.

I wonder how they would compare to the similar metrics that made them the youngest or one of the youngest teams last season. I'd imagine they are still young age wise as there are a ton of sophs and still no super covid seniors (though those will fade out over time), but on the contrary, I'd imagine UD would rank pretty high in terms of "returning minutes" from last season or about middle of the pack in terms of "total minutes played" collectively.


At any rate, with a full normal off season, the argument that they are inexperienced should be dead, but they will still be lead by a ton of sophomores so the narrative will be used to describe them.

Saw that the Lindy's 2022-23 preview magazine is released as of today, Sep 7. Ordered my copy online. Anybody have any thoughts on other mags? Nothing comes up for Athlon, and I'm not sure Sporting News or Sports Illustrated will have anything. So excited about this coming year!

Presenting The Athletic’s 20 Most Intriguing Players for the 2022-23 men’s hoops campaign. It’s an entirely subjective exercise aimed at, one, reminding everyone who (presumably) will play this winter, and, two, highlighting players in particularly compelling roles or circumstances.

17. DaRon Holmes II, Dayton
By way of introduction, for those who may not be familiar with the 6-10 big man operating along the banks of the Miami River: Holmes was the No. 38 recruit in the Class of 2021, and thereby the highest-rated prospect ever to sign with Dayton. He delivered via earning Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Year honors and a spot on the league’s All-Defensive Team and All-Conference teams, period. The Flyers are a souped-up mid-major that should be a preseason Top 25 team and Holmes is the lodestar, and that’s interesting enough. What fascinates us most is the track Holmes is on, and what — or, more specifically, whom — it evokes. Some freshman year numbers for Holmes: 16.7 points and 7.9 rebounds per 40 minutes, an offensive rating of 124.9, an effective field goal percentage of 65.1 (seventh nationally) and 5.7 Win Shares. Obi Toppin’s freshman year production, meanwhile? Averages of 21.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per 40 minutes, an offensive rating of 123.2, an effective field goal percentage of 68.4 and 4.8 Win Shares. They appear to be wired a bit differently, yes, given Holmes’ superior rim protection and Toppin’s ability to do more offensively, in less time, as a freshman. But the distinctions don’t entirely disqualify the similarities. How Holmes’ second season evolves, and how closely (or not) it mirrors the development pace of Dayton’s last impact big — that’s the curiosity.

When comparing DaRon's first year numbers to Obi's they should also mention that Obi was Red-Shirted and therefore spent a full season practicing with the team before his first season. That doesn't mean DaRon is better or is going to be better, but it did give Obi an advantage as a freshman.

He was also like 42 years old as a freshman because he did a year of prep school before the redshirt year.

Years ago there was a story about having the Federal Gov give money to Hawaii to put an INTERSTATE on the island of Oahu.

Now Hawaii is about 2,000 miles from the nearest US mainland state but that didn't prevent the FED from designating the interstates as H1, H2 and H3.

The people on Oahu said "Heh, if they want to give us money to build some much needed roads then who cares what they want us to call them!"

I believe the mid-major moniker at this point refers mostly to conference affiliation and not program quality. For instance, DePaul, Northwestern, and Vandy, are all considered high major programs even though they are objectively inferior to Dayton. In any event who cares? It only makes it better when we beat P5 schools. (I quoted because I think you are spot on, not because I disagree).

I spoke to someone today who saw and heard interview with a homeless man from San Francisco. He was asked how long he had been there. His answer was he had just moved to San Francisco from Texas. Asked why he left Texas for San Francisco he responded by saying he got $800 a month from San Francisco while in Texas he got nothing. Nothing like free bucks!

DaRon comes in at 44 on the top 100 players. In another thread someone asked about other basketball publications. The Almanac is a new one this year with a preview of every D1 team. It is supposed to include interviews with all the head coaches. Link to order is in this tweet.

Iíve never heard him speak before. He seems like he has a really good head on his shoulders. And Obi Toppin was the reason he became interested in us. Despite not being able to play a tournament, that season is still paying dividends.

Katz has Wyoming inside the top 25 (#25). Most seem to have them just outside. Nice to hear him also mention SLU, VCU and Loyola as under consideration.

Maldonado is a load for Wyoming. Can back down almost any guard to get his shot. He did this against Indiana at the Arena in the First Four and just didnt get the shots to fall down. He also had 10 TOs I think. Probably the worst game he ever played but you could see it was an aberration and on most nights he'd be a problem.

Graham Ike is their big guy inside and is a massive man who may average 20 and 10this year. We dont have anybody to throw beef at him and battle unless Amaefule or Baker can do something we're not expecting. Toumani is too small and I dont think DaRon is thick enough. We coulda used Jordy for this job. Or Big Steve -- oh man it would have been perfect for Big Steve.

Rothstein at practice today

"Dayton's DaRon Holmes II has put on approximately 25 pounds and is now near 230, per the staff. Looks like a completely different player physically."

"Dayton may have a potential front court reinforcement in 6-9 redshirt sophomore Richard Amaefule. Could be post insurance --- especially when the Flyers face power conference teams."

"R.J. Blakney could be for this Dayton team what Trey Landers was for Dayton during the 2019-20 season. So steady. So consistent. A potential Under-The-Radar Glue Guy to monitor."

"Palpable Buzz at Dayton regarding 6-8 freshman Mike Sharavjamts. Could be used in a backup PG role. Excellent "pocket passing" ability."

"Early prediction on Dayton's 2022-23 starting five:

Malachi Smith, Kobe Elvis, R.J. Blakney, Toumani Camara, DaRon Holmes II"

I would tend to agree on your starting five with only one exception - as the season proceeds, we are going to find out that Kobe Brea will be replacing either Elvis or Blakney. There is no way Coach Grant will be able to keep him off the court.

It is not so much about who starts, but who finishes. Brea brings good energy off the bench and will probably average more minutes than Elvis or Blakney in route to earning A-10 6th man of the year.

25 lbs of muscle on Holmes should make him stud. Hopefully with no loss of quickness.

The big unknown is Amzil?

I doubt he'll get more minutes than Elvis. When Elvis isn't at SG, I'm guessing he's first to spell Mali at PG. Plus I think Elvis and Blakney are better ball handlers. But you are correct that Brea brings the energy and if the inside offense is being stifled, he's the man you call on to force defenses to back off.

This has to be one of the most exciting upcoming seasons as far as anticipation for me. This team has so much room for improvement that's very likely to come to fruition based on their youth. And that's improving on what I believe was an NCAA team at the end of last season but for Mali's injury.

Mali certainly has room to improve his finishing at the basket skills. And he's got a great teacher at that in the family. Elvis needs to improve his backup PG skills and I'm guessing that's been and being worked on. DaRon was great and will certainly improve based on experience and muscle. But the key to how far this team can go to me will be what we see out of Camara. He's the guy that can put the Flyers over the top and I believe we're going to see it.

The rest (Improvement from Amzil, Zimi, Kaleb, RJ and Brea) will be icing on the cake. And anything (and that could be a lot) we get from M. Mike is just thicker icing. Same with the two big men seeing the court for the first time as a Flyer.

ACC has released tip times and television designations. Virginia Tech game on December 7 will be an 8 oíclock start on ACC network. Note, if you only have ESPN plus, you will not get this game. I believe spectrum and certain DIRECTV packages carries this network. most watering holes should have it.

Given the off-season debates in this forum, I couldn't help but legitimately LOL when I read this.

This isn't his lhsgolf's prediction, but Rothstein's that he was quoting. And it really isn't Rothstein's either, just the SL from last year rolled over.

I find it interesting that Rothstein called out Amafuele. The big guy is a huge unknown and it strikes me as a good sign that Rothstein gave him a shout out.

Rothstein names DaRon as one of the 15 players who will become stars this year
https://collegehoopstoday.com/index....022-23-season/
DaRon Holmes II, Dayton: Heís not Obi Toppin, but the 6-10 Holmes is one of the primary reasons why the Flyers are projected to be one of the top non power conference teams in college basketball during the upcoming season. A former Top-50 recruit, Holmes averaged 20 points and six rebounds over his final five games as a freshman while shooting an astronomical 68.3 percent from the field. Donít be shocked if heís the Atlantic 10 Player of the Year as a sophomore.
There are a few other names on the list that UD fans will recognize.

Yesterday Neil talked about the Red and Blue game during the NIL town hall.

The autograph sessions are presented by CareSource. They are an NIL opportunity for our players. Neil mentioned attending those sessions as a means of supporting NIL opportunities for our players (at no cost to the fans). People attending increases the likelihood of similar events being funded in the future.
He asked everyone to spread the word about the importance of supporting NIL opportunities, so I'm spreading the word about this one.
Doors open at 12:30

We must have had a bad week last week because we dropped 2 spots.
