Monmouth

Fifth Third Arena
ESPN+

Thought it was odd to see this team on schedule. This is our first ever meeting.

Come to learn that their coach, King Rice, was a former UNC captain (like Miller), and also interviewed for the open UNC position last spring.

Now for the jaw dropper...

For the first and only time in Division 1 this season, two siblings will face off with one coaching and the other playing.

6'11 Walker Miller is a former UNC walk-on and now the starting center for Monmouth as a grad transfer. He's Wes Miller's younger brother and averages 15 & 8 per game so far.

Bearcats are favored by 11.

Any word on what happened to Newman? He's on the bench in a suit, so must be some sort of injury.

Miller offense leaves a lot to be desired.

We don't run motion or sets. Just iso and ball screens.

For how much bigger we were, our rebounding wasn't great either. We were around 30% offensive rebound percentage, while they were around 25% OR%. It seems to be the theme under Miller, good to great defense and we don't turn the ball over. But our half court offense sucks and if they other team can avoid giving us fast break points and make some tough shots (or run good offense), we are in trouble. We also don't rebound nearly as well as we should given our size.
