6-1.....cashed in two pretty easy wins, home vs. a sim Oral Roberts, and at a fair UTEP team. They are improving, and should be ok later in the year.
Now is the last 3 games that are the most difficult for me. @ Weber State, home vs. Fordham of the Ivy, and home vs. a Wyoming team that has a ton of upperclassmen.
I am hoping to win 2 of 3, but even 1 of 3 and ending 7-3 would be ok. I think having 2 of 3 at home gives me a good chance. Weber State is going to be tough. Sideburn is a good coach who out foxed me last year and beat me at my place. He has a good press with a couple really athletic players. His PF Hardin I really wanted to make a move for, but I was a D prestige, and he was a 1-star that wouldn't even take my calls.
Should be interesting to see what type of D he plays. Last year he went +2 and generated a ton of TOs. This year I have much better ball handling and passing in my guards and SF, so if he comes out I think I can beat him up on the interior and on the boards, but you never know. In any event, I think this is the one of the 3 I have the lowest chance of winning. Road games vs. equal or slightly better teams are hard.
I think was is working for me this year is my team speed. This is the fastest team I have ever had. My starting PG, SG and backup SF are above 95, and my slowest non-big is at 81 (benson my SF). My bigs have speeds of 40, 49, 54 and 64, which is pretty good for a mid-major. This is leading to a lot of TOs, and I am still surprised we are rebounding so well. Hummel's 55 reb at PG is making up for Benson and Jonson's 25 and 26 at SF I think.
