SID Bob Molta interview with Jake Collagan posted on https://gowarriorathletics.com/landing/index men's basketball web site is strange in that Molta never brings up Carlos Gonzales taking a red shirt year or how Eastern will try to back-fill for Carlos' absence!  They actually spent more time discussing Jake's time playing with Keene St!! :o  There was little discussion of the new FY players or transfers.  I thought Jake did a good job describing his role and how he improved over the summer.  It was an uninformative interview by Molta IMHO! ???
 
ECSU has their hands full in the WPI Tourney this weekend with Nichols, WPI and NE College, so we will see how well Coach Geitner has molded this year's rookies, transfers and returning players (without Carlos, one of the best players in the LEC), to reproduce another winning season.

Not sure if there are any Castleton fans here but if anyone knows what happened to Calvin Carter and Richard Walker?

Checking out boxscores, rosters etc for teams, because that's what I do as a fantasy league player...

It totally looks like Southern Maine is the Hushies. Every jersey in the picture, except for maybe one or two, looks like the name across the jersey is spelled H U S H I E S. It doesn't look much like a K at all, IMO.

Western opens their conference schedule with a dominating win over Eastern. They outplayed, out hustled Eastern the entire game and held them to 19 points in the first half. Not sure why Eastern was picked to win the LEC By the coaches poll because they just donít resemble the Eastern teams Iíve seen over the last 10 years. I wonder when the coaches poll was done if they knew Carlos Gonzalez wouldnít be playing this year. Western looks solid, but looks like they are lacking a true 3 point shooting guard.  Should be interesting to see what teams separate themselves over the next couple of months in conference play.

 Mass-Boston knocks off D1 Holy Cross; oddity, Boston has 2 starters, Charlie Mitchell and Charles Mitchell.

It gets better: they're twins--identical twins.

Shion Derby making an early bid for national ROY:

28.7-4.2-5.2 on 45/35/74 splits for a 9-1 RIC team (which went 13-12 last year without him).  Those stats are just ridiculous for any player, let alone a frosh. 

Tom Glynn clearly knows how to recruit, and utilize, small guards ...

I watched the very first game of the season (of course, as you'd expect, his worst performance thus far), so I'll have to check out a few more games to get a good gauge.  The ROY is certainly not just a "who scored the most award."  If you're interested in guys I've noticed so far:

Vinny Deangelo is the backup PG for the #1 team in the country, playing pretty good minutes.  Ian Anderson is the first guy off the bench at Christopher Newport and a very talented player with a bright future.  There's a guy at RMC who's name escapes me at the moment, but contributing well as a freshman.  I'm not sure he'll fully be able to blossom with the seniors they have, but Ofek Reef at Yeshiva has about as high an upside as I can remember in a while for a d3 freshman.

I'm sure there's a few more who will emerge as the season goes along.  Scoring 31ppg is a good way to get on the short list, though.
