For the teams we play twice, it's mostly the same as last season. The exception: we do 2x vs SLU this season, swapping in for SJU.

The good:
Not having to play at VCU.
Home game vs Dayton and Obi Toppin. He's worth the ticket.
(For me) A road game at Rose Hill for Fordham.

The bad:
A road game at Rose Hill for Fordham. That place has been a horror show for us. We're 4-7 there since the Lappas years started.
Having to travel to the winter wasteland that is St. Bonaventure.
Having to go, again, to the depressing Tom Gola arena.

we can't know yet how good each A-10 team will be, but the early guesses have us playing some top (VCU, Davidson) and bottom (Fordham, GW, SJU) teams only once, and playing teams expected to fight for middle positions twice.

In case you didn't know, Romeo Langford the Celt's 1st pick was a high school teammate of Sean East. Maybe he'll stop in to see a game or two.

They got some testy alums/fans there in the Bronx.
All due respect, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart, I'm gonna pass.

Where did they post it? seems to me that if they have a photo of the team they should update the roster and coaching staff on the Athletic Site.

I’m guessing they don’t want to get to big if they’re going to be a full court pressing team

Here's the link to the photo. Scroll down around 6 posts. My favorite one is just above it (first full practice). I love the smiles and enthusiasm.

Sy looks like he may have shot up and inch or maybe 2....and he looks like he’s packed on some muscle...I know the picture is an overhead angle and they’re not standing exactly side by side but he looks significantly taller than Tre and KTM...and pretty close to Djery...I’m thinking he’s going to be a big presence this season, defensively, on the glass and finishing around the rim.
