Being an optimist, still think it will be more than six wins this year. I also enjoyed this season despite the disappointing number of wins. I think we saw some good bb at times,definitely some signs of good things for the future. But I still think that better game planning and coaching should have resulted in at least ten wins at this point. I will never understand the starting line-up that was largely stuck with this year no matter what was happening. But this staff must be credited with the class that was brought in and I still believe is a very good one given the circumstances it was achieved in. They also must be credited with improvement that we have seen in some players despite not being in the w-l record. Akeem has still only played one and one-half year of Div one bb , and I am for one really positive about his reduction in TOs and better shooting form in the second half of the season. It was gratifying that the coaching staff started to allow,if not encourage Bacon to be more active going to the basket in the last few games. Some of the disappointment in the number of Ws was due to Hogga going down and to Raul being impacted by wearing the mask ( though it is hopeful in terms of the next game or four or five that his comfort on the court and in shooting form looked much better in the Siena game). Even some progress in Traore's play.

I also think that this stuff about the size of our pg is almost silly whether talking offense or defense. Of course the bigger the better given the same talent. But at the MAAC level ,a 5'10' or 5'8" point should be no problem if he is reasonably talented and a coaching staff has some clue about maximizing his strengths and minimizing his wesknesses. No matter how much I love Wesley Jenkins play ( and I would not trade him for any other player in the MAAC )it was at the two spot that other guards beat us at times. But Jenkins is getting better and better at that end -he held first team Hasbrouck well in check vs. the first game- and is potentially a very good defensive guard. It will help his defense once that in addition to all the effort he has to put forth on offense he does not have to help rescue our point in getting the ball past half-court.
