Thought I'd get a UD thread started for this season for the Flyer fans on the site.
The Flyers are quietly having a nice season so far with a current record of 11-2 with an RPI of 18. They beat a quality Ole Miss team just last week, who took Kentucky to OT two nights ago. They've had several obstacles, the big one being the dismissals of the two boneheaded big men, the career end of senior transfer Bass due to concussions, and a JC transfer who has yet to play a minute due to injury. They are currently going only 7 deep, with one of those 7 a walk-on. Amazingly though, they seem to have played their best ball since the player dismissals. The last 3-4 games has been the best Flyer basketball I've seen in a long, long time, and that includes last year's Elite 8 run. They have two road games this week, tonight and Saturday, that will be big tests.
Depth will probably become more and more of an issue as the season progresses, but if they can keep this quality of play continuing, it will end up being a fantastic coaching job on Archie's part. I'm really not expecting to see Archie here much longer than another season, if that. He'll start getting a lot of attention if this team can somehow get another NCAA invite.
