Subject: 5 Thoughts Prior to the Exhibition Game

Let's turn our attention to the exhibition game next Saturday and how this team is shaping up to face Brown on November 9. As always, I'm excited to see the new guys and how much this year's sophomores have improved. Not to mention playing time across the board. So a few things I'll be focused on in the McMaster game -

*Who will be the 5th starter to join Malik, Henderson, White, and Hitchon? My guess is Harried.

*Have Rautins and/or Hadzic improved enough to contribute?

*Can Corey Brown shake off the rust from not playing last year and provide some much needed front court help?

*Can Majesty Brandon score and defend at anywhere near the same level he did at D-2 JUCO Monroe CC?

*To me, Akrum Ahemed may have the highest ceiling of anyone on this roster. I'm very interested in seeing him compete.

Please chime in with additional thoughts.

And.....

Is Jacob a long term project or a kid who can play a role this season?

Which of our guards and small forwards can shoot the ball well especially 3’s?

Which freshman, Haaried or Ahemed are ready for D-I competition?

How much have Hitchon and White improved their overall games, especially on defense and on the boards?

Can Majesty and Malik play together in the same backcourt?

Where will our points come from?

Looking forward to some insights next Saturday

All good questions, hopefully we have that fifth starter ready to contribute, I would hope the older newcomers Brown and Brandon can play at a high level right away, will be interesting to see how they play; I'll be looking at White to see if he continues the improvement he showed at the end of last year, he's now listed at 215 lbs on roster, he just turned 20 and could be our player with the highest ceiling to his game, if he puts it all together he could be dominate in league play; Malik Johnson is still the key to a successful season but he needs help in the backcourt and hopefully in addition to Brandon one of the Freshmen and/or Rautins are ready to help. Go griffs!

From what I gathered Wednesday night, Majesty Brown is the real deal, offensively and defensively, and will probably start with Malik. Rautins is injured and might need significant time to heal. Hadzic has improved and Jacco looks very good. Corey Brown showed some decent offense in the scrimmage against Cornell. Henderson also healing but could be back soon.

Thanks CNY GRIFF! Great to hear about Majesty. May be the smallest starting backcourt in America but hey if they're the best two... Anything on Harried or Ahemed or anything else from the Cornell scrimmage? Hopefully Henderson is back for Brown - yikes!

Ahmed looked good in the Cornell scrimmage, Harried struggled, from what I was told. Heard a few say that Brandon is one of the fastest and quickest guards to wear the Griff uniform, so small, pesky guards defensively could help turn the ball over.
