Agreed, if we score 65 we have a good shot to win and if we score above 70, we are almost a lock to win, imo. I also agree we have played great defense under CAG, however, I thought CAG would press way more than he has to date. We have pressed some in each game, however, we don't or still haven't pressed the majority of many games, which is what he says he believes in. Remember, his team slogan is, "94 both ways," I just haven't seen that as regularly as that slogan implies. RTR!!!
I actually think, while our roster doesn't have the prototype size/depth for the forward spots, that we are just now getting the type of experience at the 1-3 spots to run the whole game. I don't think there is enough optimism for our guards. They were mostly freshmen last year, and while they had a lot of freshman moments, they are supremely talented. This team may win 19 games or 27 games, but either way, will be a tough out for most anyone. I agree with one of the other posters that you can't logically talk about CMG anymore (IMO couldnt last year either), but the rebuild job was going to be long. I expect somewhere between this season and 2 seasons down the road that this team could look a lot like the old Nolan Richardson teams of the early 90's. Don't much care for Nolan, but loved the 40 minutes of hell philosophy and the great games we had with them.
This team finally resembles a Grant bball team. The past few years he's been limited to playing a slow paced offensive scheme due to Jamychal Green. Now he has long athletic guards that can defend well and run even better. This team will resemble his teams at Virgina Commonwealth. And for anyone that watched those teams you know that it will be fun to watch.
We're already a 3 sport school.
oh yea im feeling pretty good right about now. Feeling good about our team. I knew we could play good.
I had faith too crimsontemplar!! We lack a legitimate post player but if we can just get some solid d from Moussa and Karl and say maybe 10 points and 10 boards we will be a force to be reckoning with. Trev, Lacey, cooper and Randolph have all improved tremendously in the offseason . Retin looked pretty good tonight I think he can spell trev and we've got a nasty workhorse in Steele. Pollard with a lot of length and athleticism. I'm excited . Best grant team we be had by far. Also of nick Jacobs can just slow down a little bit in the paint I think he can give us 8-10 points and 5 rebounds a game.
You are not considering the improvement Lacey, Cooper, Randolph, and Jacobs have likely made from their freshman to sophomore seasons. We will be better than last year. Seven losses is not a stretch.

lol at you for thinking the reason retin didnt play last year was because "he couldn't beat out eblen"
