X - GW Preview

The Musketeers need to bounce back and get this one on the road. Coming off a loss to Fordham on the road earlier this week GW is 1-1 in conference play. Correction to an earlier post: Charlotte is atop the A10 with no losses through 2 games. They beat St. Joes Wednesday night. The league is really wide open with Rhode Island taking an "L" last night in St. Louis. Back to this game GW is without who they thought their PG would be this year, Travis King. Mo Rice is playing the point and he really is an undersized two guard. He has logged major minutes. They have a couple of ACC transfers in Cheyenne Moore (Clemson) and Wynton Witherspoon (Virginia Tech) who also play a great deal for them. Up front Coach Hobbs likes long, lean athletic players and they have several headed up by Rob Diggs. Most of these guys do not clip 200 pounds but all can run/jump with anybody in our league. The 20 point game against St. Louis to open conference play was more a reflection of the Billikens offense than the Colonial defense but we must not just settle for outside jumpers. Duncan, Love, and Anderson should be the focal point of our offense tonight and pound the ball inside against their skinny posts. Also Stan Burrell needs to start looking for his offense on occassion and quit passing up open shots. There were a couple of times against the Owls he should have shot and did not. Anyway I will not predict the score but I see the Muskies winning this one comfortably.
