Point guard by committee is Swat's destiny this year. I like that no one person has to fill Cam's shoes. They miss Sallah with the elbow injury as Ryan says. Even when he's back though, Ingram will be the reliable and effective floor general, the freshman DeAngelo will get more consistent, and Visconti will handle the rock in the guts of the game.

Sallah is not nearly the scorer Cam was, so I wonder who will be the go to guy when they really need a bucket. Having said that, they are so big and disciplined that it will be a battle to beat them. Some of the perimeter players are not having as big a season due to not having Cam's penetration and kick out. I will say that wearing a Swat Hoops shirt now brings discussion in public as the basketball community knows how good they are. What is also funny is that anyone who knows anything about Swarthmore College always brings up the fact that Obama didn't get in there. Somehow, Hoops and Obama always go hand in hand when talking about Swat. =)

Fantastic game last night between Swat and JH. It had the intensity of a NCAA Tournament game. Long stretches where each team couldn't buy a bucket but they both played hard the entire game. Swat is a fantastic team but I still think they are searching for a true point guard. They are playing full court and are deeper than last year. JH is a very good team and will make noise in the league. That #1 on their back will make every team play them much harder this year but will be good come tournament time.

Congratulations to Coach Robinson on his retirement! Shocking that it comes so close to the season beginning, but it sounds like the right move for him and his family.

Wow - Not only is this shocking, but the timing is really head-scratching. One of the all time greats and just a good guy. I hope his health is ok. I wrote him a note a year or two ago hoping his health improved and that the league wasn't the same without him. To my surprise, I got a really nice long note back from him. Enjoy retirement coach (at least from basketball). You have earned it.

I guess there isn't much more I can say, but even I was surprised they were picked #1. I thought top ten or even five, but that was a nice surprise. I will tell you the Swat community is all abuzz about it. Coach K. seems to have another great group of newbies and I think George Visconti (a Sophomore) will have a break-out year. But, look for the Bigs to dominate this year. Those are some big men in the paint with skills. I don't see Swat going undefeated in League play, but it will take a huge effort to upset them. It will take three shooters who are hot to beat them. On another note, losing CW is a bigger deal than most think it is. He was the go to guy in tough situations. Someone will have to step up this year, but losing a First Team All American is a big deal.

Throw up the ball and let's go!

Congrats to Cam Wiley as he was named First Team All American!

Good Luck to Swarthmore as they play their first game Friday night at 6:00pm! I think they have a real chance to win the National Championship.

But the real question is: Does coach stay or go?

105-65 final against a really good M.I.T. team. I am stunned.

Swat shoots 24-27 in the first half and 10-10 from 3. Only player to miss a shot was their MVP Cam. Every other players hasn't missed a shot! Swat up 68-43 at halftime! Best shooting I have ever seen. Swat has missed more free throws than shots.

Swat 22-24 shooting and leads 60-43 with two minutes left in first half. I have never seen shooting like this before.

Lol, I know as a Swat fan you probably won't believe me, but I thought the Washington Coach should have been in the discussion. He did a great job with them.

Looks good to me. Anyone have thoughts?

I am kind of shocked at the talent in Swat's region. M.I.T. and Randolph-Macon are both top ten teams. Swat's second and third round games could be very tough. I believe the three of them finished 5,6, and 7 in latest rankings. Can't believe they all ended up together.

I have to say the end of the season for the Centennial was anti-climatic. Swat kind of steamrolled over the last few games and then wasn't challenged in the Centennial Tournament. In fact, their first game was just awful. As I have been saying all year, Cam is the guy who makes the team go and was the obvious choice as MVP of the Tournament. I see this as a final four team. They are on a roll right now and it is the best time for that to happen.
