    KenPom Prediction

    Lehigh (3-3 in D-1) – Ranked 189th
    @
    UVA (7-0 in D-1) – Ranked 4th
    UVA wins by 22 (75-53)

    Sounds about right when you consider………..

    UVA beat Monmouth by 20 (73-53) while Monmouth beat us by 8 (80-72)

    UVA has the Nation’s Top (#1) Defense in terms of PPG @ 50.1

    UVA has the Nations’s 10th best 3pt D @ 25.0%

    UVA is coming off a 12 point win over 35th ranked Wisconsin

    Any hope of keeping this to a single-digit setback – as far fetched as it might be – would be for our 3’s (I mean all of them) to fall and for UVA to (1) give their bench plenty of extra minutes (today, it’s 34%) and (2) get caught looking ahead to their game on Tuesday against 13th ranked, University of West Virginia.

    75-54 UVA
    Other than 2 10-0 runs in 1st half we played even up with UVA. Very impressed overall by all 4 Gs. Hell of a game.

    Side note but could be important. Lieb played.

    I don’t think so. He was in a suit.

    Leufroy struggled quite a bit but Tejada was excellent.

    Double-down on Rich H comments. Thrilled with performance. Really excited about the games to come.

    Favorite Statistics

    Andree’s 8 boards. He can be our 3 point specialist, but we’ll need more of this.

    Our 3’s…41.7% vs. Nation’s 10th best at
    defending the 3 @ 25%

    13,584 attendance…relatively unphased by a sometimes hostile crowd…doubt we’ll see more

    Cohen’s 7 boards…despite poor shooting performance….seems to always find a way to help

    Hats off to Mr.Pomeroy who missed the outcome by 1 point. He had it 75-53. Actual was 75-54

    Here’s hoping for a good turnout on Wednesday when we host YALE. Team deserve it.

    The more I see of this squad , the more impreesed I am by their cohesion. We are actually seeing a team this year. Andree actually getting rebounds. Karnick was a little phased by crowd 1st half but he settled in well in the 2nd. Hopefully Caleb S will be ready soon to help K and Porter inside. Dang looking forward to this year. No disappointed expectations, as I didnt have any. :)

    probably only played even when Cavs were playing uninspired, we turned the ball over way way too much

    Did not see any of the game so my comments only in passing, but……………. Final box & score are not the debacle I feared (see Lafayette v. Villanova) and not the 4 point game I hoped for, but…………… Definitely an effort to build on. We got beat, but not a total blow out. In hostile environment, against the leading defensive team as mentioned above. UVa had to show up and play a legitimate mid-major opponent. In summary, I am also encouraged with the progress.

    Question on Sedore for anyone in the know: Is he sitting ’cause he is not physically ready, or is this a “coaching decision”? If I could get to the game I’d ask the usher I have gotten to know. He’s been at Stabler forever and always has the inside scoop……

    Typo. It should’ve listed Wilson.
