Was hoping to get a scouting report on the Blue Devils with next weekends CCSU-PC game, here's something I posted to the Illinois board on our team....if someone could post something on our board on the Blue Devils we'd appreciate it!

Our board's at: <a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://b4.boards2go.com/boards/board.cgi?user=pcfriars1999">http://b4.boards2go.com/boards/board.cgi?user=pcfriars1999</a>

Our website is: www.friartown.com

And that post on our team was:


Basically, since going strictly to a zone D and instituting the starting 5 they use today, the Friars are 11-4 (12-4 now) from the the St. Johns game in Feb. of last season. It's modeled after Syracuse, and basically challenges you to beat them from the perimeter (as Rhode Island did on Saturday).

Offensively, the Friars will also try to beat you from the outside, hurling up three pointers like they are going out of style. Even the big men, Ryan Gomes and Rob Sanders, have started throwing them up this season. Gomes has been named "most underrated" player in the country by CBS Sportsline, and by several other outlets that cover the Big East.

Defense and rebounding from the big men might be the weakness. The only Friar that really has a strength in this area is Marcus Douthit, and if you get him in foul trouble like he often does, it could spell trouble for PC. Douthit is a shot blocker who has just started to add some offensive moves this season.

Watch Tuukka Kotti off the bench, a talented Euro both on offense and defense. McGrath is a steady point guard, but has struggled with his shot and may have difficulty covering top shelf quick guards. Kabba might be the key, he's the guy with icewater in his veins, he'll take the big shot every time if the Friars let him. Sanders is a slasher type that's added an outside jumper this year, a tremendous athlete and, well, dunker. His energy sometimes leads this group.

Mills has struggled with back problems and wasn't suited up Saturday. Dwight Brewington, a promising freshman, has seen some quality minutes in Mills absence. Laksa and Anrin are long-range Euro shooters who have been used as bit players of late, but are veterans to Big East play.

Friartown - game notes are always online, I think the PC ones are up there now.

CCSU beat UMass in its last game on the 9th, 53-52. Senior Ron Robinson is the proven leader of this team and scored the last 10 points, including 2 ft's with 5.6 left, to win against UMass.

This team is young, but talented. They are good, but are going to get better. Not sure how they match up against PC (size, etc.) but they will ALWAYS play hard. It's in the coaches nature.

(By the way, the coach's name is wrong on friartown.com)
