A Look at Day 1

UNC should win going away, same with OSU.

Albany and Murray State may possibly put up a fight in the other two match ups…

Murray State @ Cal – Murray State returns nearly everyone off of a 19 win team, including, Isacc Miles and Danero Thomas. Those two will need to match up well with Randle and Christopher. They have four contributors also who now will be sophomores after learning the ropes last year. Cal’s guards will be too much here, but Murray State likely can hang around with no true size and interior disadvantage.

Albany @ Syracuse – Albany has Ambrose and Harris to lead the way, but making shots against the 2-3 will be a struggle, and the best part of their game, rebounding is negated with Cuse’s frontline. However, another upstate team going into the Dome where those teams have fared well, from Saint Rose to LeMoyne to Siena.

For the two games that won’t competitive, at all..

The spotlight should be on Larry Drew and the Carolina back court as this play by play of their Vandy scrimmage is going around..
