    '12-'13 UC Basketball

    Can't believe this hasn't been started yet. UC looks to be poised for a good year under Mick. Time to discuss the season with the opener going on now. Rubles looks like he may be a beast and I really like the improved play of Mbodj. Through the first half, they haven't looked outstanding, but have shown flashes of play that really excites me looking ahead. Honestly, UT Martin is not good. UC has looked bored at times IMO.

    Didn't get to watch the game but it looks like we were able to take care of business.

    I didn't get to watch at all. I am cautiously excited about this season.

    Just to get a little discussion going, how about UConn going from unranked in the AP poll to #23? They leapfrogged UC which stayed at #24. UC finally enters the coaches poll, which it should have been in from the beginning. I know people get tired of Cronin's lack of respect routine, but I think their ranking is a bit lower than it should be. Polls don't matter a whole lot, especially right now, but fans do pay attention to them. Things will even out if UC plays to it's potential.

    As for the team this year, I like the fact that they can play up tempo. Guard play will be very strong, and they should be able to hold their own down low. The key will be getting quality minutes from the bench. If UC plays as deep as Mick says they can, they will be very tough to beat. UC doesn't really get a true test for a couple more games, but I have a lot of optimism heading into the season.

    If I am reading their schedule of event correctly, the Bearcat game will be streaming on ESPN3 in about 20 minutes.
    Zero chance the Reds miss the playoffs!

    UC is looking pretty good so far in the second half. Much more focused and crisp in the second half. The first half they were quite sloppy IMO. Lazy, ill advised passes (mostly by JJ) and missed shots under the basket were what stuck out to me the most. Turnovers are a concern early in the season, as well as their free throw shooting. That may get better as the competition gets better. It isn't easy to keep a team focused when you are running the other team out of the gym.

    The things I really like are the blocks and the offense. Those are two things that UC seemed to be missing last year.

    Heh so true. What puzzles me is that it's not like we have terrible shooters on the team. There's no reason at all for SK to be shooting 39% from the line. My guess is that as the season goes on it won't be as big of a problem.

    Free throw shooting is all about concentration IMO. It may get better as the competition does, but it is abysmal right now. For some reason, Mick's teams have had their struggles from the line. Don't get me wrong, I love the job Mick and his staff are doing, but there is no excuse for a team to be as bad from the free throw line as this one. You just can't lose close games because of free throws. That will kill them if they don't get it straightened out.
