Rough day for the ACC. In addition to Georgia Tech going down, Pitt lost to The Citadel and Virginia lost to Navy. Clemson was down by 8 to Presbyterian at the half but came back to win. We play Presbyterian next week.

Arizona St lost to UC Riverside tonight. Major conferences are laying some eggs early in the season.

JP Moorman from Temple sank a three-quarter court heave at the buzzer for the win.

Decided to rewatch the game this morning, nothing better to do on a rainy morning.

- Newman played better than I recalled. He took what he was given on offense and didn't try to force anything, fought for everything on the glass on both ends, was disruptive on defense and didn't make many mistakes.

- Ody was bad. Got caught out of position, went for blocks when he didn't need to, messed up communication on switches, couldn't guard Bridges 1v1. He did provide some nice rebounding, but was a net negative. He has the athleticism and energy, but needs to learn to use it within the system.

- MAW got beat off the drive a number of times. Saunders and JD both got caught ball watching on defense a few times and left their man open for an easy shot. Saunders was excellent with his ball pressure though. Georgia also made some tough shots. They shot 48% from the field and 50% from three, we were not good on defense when we weren't turning them over.

- Koval was our best defensive big man, Lakhin was our best offensive big man. Ado seems slow to react and get himself into good position, which he shouldn't be considering he's is a super senior. Didn't make too many mistakes, but didn't do many good things either.

- Our offense is pretty good when we actually run offense (especially when Lakhin is on the floor). Way too much hero ball at times and guys trying to take their man 1v1 though. Need to work on moving the ball and taking what is given, rather than trying to force it off the drive.

- Side note: over on 247 someone posted a Lakhin post where he says he sprained his ankle before the game and played through the pain (with a post of swollen ankle). Hope he can stay healthy, as he looks like he may be our best offensive player (especially if the guards would give him the ball).

USF barely survived at home to North Carolina A&T after losing to Georgia Southern on Saturday. The AAC also picked up losses to Air Force and Southern over the weekend. Those were all 260+ NET teams last year. Those losses will drag down the metrics of the entire conference, limiting our chances for quality wins. On the bright side, UCF won at Miami.

Agree with most here. Koval and Lakhin were the net positive bigs. Ado is playing well below his potential. Ody may have to slow things down a bit to get better. He's way to jacked up out there to be able to think straight.

Newman had a nice game of defense and rebounding and taking what is given on offense and that is exactly what he needs to do all year.

The guards will have their up and down games and we can ride the hot hands from game to game.

South Florida lost at home to South Carolina St, who was 0-7 and #348 on Torvik. I can't wait to get out of this conference. The American is ranked 9th on Torvik so far this year, continuing a trend of dropping one spot each season after peaking at #6 in 2019.

We're #45 in the first NET rankings of the season.

Surprisingly, the highest ranked team that we've played so far is Monmouth at #41 making it a Q2 home game.

Arkansas (#44) and Illinois (#48) are both currently Q1 games.

Miami is the only other non-Q4 game we've played. They're #118 which makes our win last week a Q2 win.
