Staff
rather than try to guess on Mississippi Valley's starting line-up, I just put up the Bart Torvik projections for both teams.

My guess is Baylor is going to play everyone in this one, but I suspect the starting line-up will be:

Flo Thamba
Jalen Bridges
Keyonte George
LJ Cryer
Adam Flagler

It's not often I'm excited for a Monday workday, but man today just feels like Christmas. Nothing like CBB season tipping off

Ok, anything less than a complete and utter shutout, and I will consider this game a failure. Oops! Wrong sport. I jest.

Can't get any work done this morning as I keep peering over the top of the keyboard, looking at the clock, counting down the minutes until 11 am!!!!!!!!!

Let's Go Bears!

Also what are we setting the over/under for technicals on Flo now that flopping is immediate tech?

The thing about George is that his ability to drive to the hoop and get doubled is gonna leave a lot of potentially open shots for Bridges, Lohner, Flo and Josh O.
DanaDane

Here we go. Love and George in to replace Cryer and Flagler.

Early bricks from 3. Somewhat expected in game 1. Shot selection isn't great but again it's game 1 against a team whose clearly inferior

Dang. How many gray half-zips do we have on the bench? We had a lot in prior years but now it looks like that number has tripled.

I love his physicality. We need a guy who is willing to get in and mix it up. Particularly as we play physical teams.

Bridges glides like a gazelle. I didn't realize he was that fast.

Man, I LOVE watching Flagler when he's set from 3. You can tell it's going in as soon as he releases it.

Adding Bridges to the 3 guards (name any of them) makes this a really good ball movement team.

I was today years old when I found out Loveday is left-handed
