In our fall slumber, we’ve bypassed the exhibitions and midnight extravaganzas (though Hofstra’s is tonight — get out there if you can). Thus, with more available information, we should be held to a high standard for these picks.
Here’s the problem…
On the whole, picking this league is largely a crapshoot. What we’re really picking is what the CAA Tournament seeding will look like. Thus, some of these teams may be in a virtual tie with the others, but we’re making a gut call as a theoretical tiebreaker.
Who cares if you’ve got William & Mary fourth, and Delaware fifth? They’d still meet in a Saturday quarterfinal anyway. There’s no reason to believe each team won’t have a legitimate shot to defend its home court in conference play.
That’s what I love about the home-and-home schedule for a nine-team conference. Everyone gets a one shot at revenge.
Do I think that right now, on paper, Towson has the best team top to bottom? I do. But I also think any team has what it takes to rattle off three (or four) wins in a row in Baltimore to earn the chance to dance. We don’t know how Towson will handle being a targeted team, or how the College of Charleston will adjust to the CAA.
We don’t know how much help the talented, experienced guards at Delaware and Drexel will get from the youthful forwards replacing frontcourt studs Jamelle Hagins and Daryl McCoy.
The opposite can be said at Northeastern, where we feel good about the frontcourt, but have obvious concerns about a backcourt without a Lee or Smith (although, we feel pretty good about a Husky named Walker).
And really, it’s hard not to love William & Mary’s starting five. And while we do feel that Shaver’s squad will get more bench production than last year, it’s still gambling on young players to play key roles. If William & Mary learns to close out the close games it lost last year, the sky’s the limit.
We don’t know about Year One A.D. – After Devon — which marks a new era for Matt Brady’s James Madison Dukes. The Dukes’ 12 underclassmen will be led by sixth-year senior Andrey Semenov, who may have been in attendance when Barack Obama’s presidential campaign hit the Convocation Center in 2008 (not saying he was…but he could have been). The youth movement is in full swing, and it’s going to be a roller coaster ride in Harrisonburg.
And what should we think of a Hofstra team with four returning players and eight new ones? First-year head coach Joe Mihalich has done a great job these first few months, but we hardly recognize this team. One thing’s for sure: Mihalich and staff have this program headed in the right direction.
Finally, we hardly know what to expect from Buzz Peterson’s UNCW squad. With a new coaching staff and plenty of fresh faces on the roster, we can hardly judge this team on last year’s performance. True, the Seahawks lost a historic player from a bad team, but there should be more scoring options.
If the Dubmen can cut down on the turnovers, who’s to say they can’t continue to defend their home court more often than not? If Yemi Makanjuola and/or Chuck Ogbodo become eligible, I think the Seahawks can surprise.
Sit tight, the fun begins in two days.
So long: Bilal Dixon, Kris Walden
Welcome: John Davis, Walter Foster, Barrington Alston (redshirt freshman), Marquis Marshall (redshirt freshman), Four McGlynn (Vermont transfer, redshirt sophomore)
What we like: On most nights, we expect the talented, balanced senior class to overwhelm its competition. If things go as expected, Jerrelle Benimon will garner back-to-back CAA Player of the Year Honors, with Pat Skerry secretly knowing his best player can do more.
Marcus Damas came on strong to average 12.7 points in conference play. If Towson gets good minutes from young post players, it will allow Damas to play the three, where he’ll be a mismatch. Look for Damas to continue his high level of play, and show us why he’s one of the most underrated players in this league.
The backcourt will be better. Rafriel Guthrie and Jerome Hairston play differing complimentary styles, and improved their ball-handling as the season progressed. Four McGlynn should immediately become the three-point threat the Tigers sorely lacked last season.
Timajh Parker-Rivera looked good in a limited role last year, and should get a healthy dose of minutes in the frontcourt. Freshmen John Davis and Walter Foster will need to attack the glass to help account for Dixon’s production. And I’d bet Donyell Marshall’s kid, Marquis, will be good for a few 3-pointers throughout the season.
What we worry about: Now that they’re the consensus favorites and are eligible for postseason play, it will be interesting to see how the Tigers respond to being the hunted team. It’s not like this team didn’t take its lumps at the beginning of last season. Thus, the key for Towson will be to maximize each possession and value the basketball.
It sounds obvious right? But for a team that averaged 14.9 turnovers per game, it has to be said (hence, little love from the simulations). Benimon committed eight by himself in the final game of the year. Guthrie and Hairston cut down on the turnovers in conference play, but they need to continue to make strides in that department.
Dixon was massive body in the paint, and a big part of the reason the Tigers averaged 12.2 offensive rebounds per game (14th in D-I). Without him, they’ll need to find a way to continue producing extra shots. They’ll still be in plenty of close games, and because of that you hope they’ll be more efficient from the foul line (65.4%, 288th in D-I) than last year.
Player who should take a step: I think, for senior Mike Burwell, less could be more. He won’t have to be the primary three-point option this year, and should be in better position to pick his spots. As a veteran who started every game last year for Towson, I think he’ll do the little things, and have a few more 17-point outbursts, to take pressure of Benimon and Damas.
Crystal Ball: With no discernible holes and the returning Player of the Year, the Tigers are poised to take another big step under their third-year coach, Skerry. It won’t always be pretty, and I think there might be a few letdowns early in the season. But they have, on paper, the most complete team in the league. They should finish first, and carry momentum into the conference tournament, which will take place right around the block from their brand new SECU Arena.
College of Charleston
So long: Andrew Lawrence, Trent Wiedeman
Welcome: Glenn Pierre, Jr., Canyon Berry (redshirt freshman), Joe Chealey, Terrance O’Donohue, Jonathan Burroughs-Cook, David Wishon (Tulsa transfer, redshirt sophomore)
What we like: With just a few months to prepare, Doug Wojcik molded the Cougars into a team that will fit right into the CAA style. While it’s true that the team he inherited was hardly a blank slate, the Cougar defense allowed 62.1 points per game after allowing 68.3 points in ’11-’12.
A squad that returns four starters will bring a stingy defense into the rock fights that await in its new conference. Led by Adjehi Baru and Anthony Thomas, the Cougar defense should be even better in its second year under Wojcik.
Junior Anthony Stitt will take over as C of C’s primary playmaker, and Wojcik likes his potential. He can score in a variety of ways, and having had the experience of playing alongside Olympian Andrew Lawrence will do wonders for Stitt going forward.
Two of my favorite C of C statistics from last year: a sterling 11-2 record as the away team, and a three-point defense that held opponents to 30% shooting from downtown, good for 19th in the country. According to King Kresse, senior forward Anthony Thomas is a big reason for the terrific perimeter defense.
What we worry about: When I talked with Coach Wojcik this summer, he raved about what Andrew Lawrence brought to the team last year. He credited Lawrence with providing the toughness that allowed the Cougars to be such a good road team. Lawrence is gone. So is Trent Wiedeman, who was a big reason why the Cougars were such a strong rebounding team.
They’re another team heavy on freshmen, as the Cougars have five, including Canyon Berry (who shoots underhanded free throws just like his pops). You’ve got to believe those in the know when they say bench play will be the determining factor for this team. Fortunately for the Cougars, that’s a huge question up and down the CAA this year, as plenty of teams will have benches full of inexperience.
Player who should take a step: 7’2” David Wishon is a bit of a wild card. He redshirted last season after following Wojcik from Tulsa, and will have a chance to score significant minutes from the get go. If Wishon can give solid minutes early, and allow the freshmen to ease into playing time, it’ll be huge.
Crystal Ball: If the Cougars learned from Lawrence, and play with the same road swagger they did last year, they’ll challenge for the CAA Title. I’m putting them second, because I’m excited by the significant gains they made last year, and think their stifling defense has a chance to be even better.
So long: Daryl McCoy, Derrick Thomas, Aquil Younger, Casey Carroll
Welcome: Rodney Williams, Mohamed Bah, Major Canady, Khris Lane, Freddie Wilson (Seton Hall transfer, eligible second semester as a junior)
What we like: For Bruiser Flint and Company, this is a shot at redemption. The silver lining from Chris Fouch’s injury was the chance to bring the sharpshooter back for a sixth year, and one final shot at an NCAA Tournament berth.
Aided by five incoming players, Frantz Massenat and Damion Lee won’t feel the immense pressure that fell upon them last year. Surrounded by better offensive weapons, Massenat will help Drexel get back to being one of the CAA’s most efficient offenses. Lee, who averaged 17.1 points last season, will be in the conversation for CAA Player of the Year.
After fighting through conference play with an undermanned roster, Drexel will get a boost from a four-man recruiting class. Perhaps the biggest addition will be Freddie Wilson, a junior transfer from Seton Hall who will become eligible after the fall semester.
Last year, when Massenat checked out of the games, the Dragons offense was stagnant. With Wilson and freshman Major Canady, Flint won’t have to fret about a prolonged dry spell when Massenat needs a breather.
The frontcourt, led by Dartaye Ruffin and Kazembe Abif, should pack more offensive firepower. Mohamed Bah is another big body who should eat up some minutes.
What we worry about: The Dragons lost their space-eating center (McCoy) and top perimeter defender (Thomas). Granted, other teams (Delaware, Towson, UNCW) lost their centers too, but McCoy was a perfect fit for this team because he didn’t need the ball to contribute. The three-point defense, which was so good two years ago took a step back, and now has to cope with losing Thomas.
Drexel will need to lean on the freshmen quite a bit — especially until Wilson becomes eligible after the fall semester. The freshmen don’t have to score, but they need to rebound and defend to play for Flint. Drexel’s offense wasn’t nearly as efficient as it was in ’11-’12, but will be improved with a healthy Fouch.
Player who should take a step: Sophomore wing Tavon Allen flashed glimpses of his massive potential last year. He’ll need to learn to be more selective with his shots, but he should have opportunities to surprise when teams key in on the Big Three.
Crystal Ball: Much like Northeastern last year, Drexel’s backcourt will be generally be too much for the opposition to handle. But going into last year, we probably undersold how much the Dragons would miss Samme Givens. We can’t make the same mistake this year, as both Thomas and McCoy played big time minutes early in their careers. Ultimately, a lot will depend on how the freshmen develop. At the moment, I feel comfortable putting them third.
So long: Jamelle Hagins, Josh Brinkley, Will Townsville, Larry Savage, Terrell Rogers
Welcome: Barnett Harris, Devonne Pinkard, Cazmon Hayes, Maurice Jeffers (redshirt freshman), Davon Usher (Mississippi Valley State transfer, senior)
What we like: We knew this team was going to score (69.0 points per game last season) and that was before Davon Usher (18.8 points last year) came into the fold. We expect the Fightin’ Blues, led by the conference’s leading scorer Devon Saddler, to be an offensive juggernaut again this season.
Last year, it was impossible to keep Saddler and junior Jarvis Threatt out of the lane, which led to ample opportunities from the foul line. That duo was a big part of the reason the Hens averaged 17.6 points from charity stripe, the sixth-most in D-I.
That will continue, but bringing Usher in will put another consistent three-point threat beside junior Kyle Anderson. Saddler and Threatt are good rebounding guards, which should allow Delaware to get out on the break and make things happen in transition. Senior Carl Baptiste should get a lot of putback opportunities. Monté has proven to be a great recruiter, so we can feel good about the incoming freshmen’s chances to contribute early.
What we worry about: Delaware must replace Jamelle Hagins, last year’s CAA Defensive Player of the Year, from a team that was below-average defensively. Baptiste should be able to pick up the slack on the glass, but the interior defense takes a big hit without Hagins. Although Delaware will probably opt for smaller, quicker lineups, the freshmen bigs will be counted on to contribute.
Chemistry will be the key here. They’ve got plenty of guys who can create their own shots, but you hope there will be enough basketballs to go around. As we’ve mentioned, this team had the second-worst ratio of assists to field goals made (0.41) in D-I. Plenty of guys can score, but they’ll need to help each other score to contend for a conference championship.
Player who should take a step: This might be taking the easy way out, but senior Carl Baptiste is going to have some huge games. He’s the only experienced big man on the team, and will be the Hens’ garbage man around the basket. He looked bigger than most guys last year, and added 15 pounds in the offseason (and apparently it hasn’t slowed him down). He’ll play a lot more than the 18 minutes he averaged last year, and will push for double-digit rebounds each game.
Crystal Ball: They’ll be fun to watch, and will compete in every game night in and night out. Like Drexel, the big question involves getting contributions from the freshmen frontcourt guys. Having said that, Ross has established himself as one of the best recruiters in the league, so I’m optimistic about young players contributing for Delaware. Fourth feels right.
William & Mary
So long: Matt Rum
Welcome: Daniel Dixon, Omar Prewitt, Michael Schlotman, Jack Whitman
What we like: There’s a lot to like here. Junior Marcus Thornton will build on his monster sophomore year, and vie for the CAA Player of the Year award. We know he can score, and if he can continue to create for the Tribe’s efficient offense, there’s no reason this team can’t contend for a conference championship.
Tim Rusthoven AKA Beasthoven is one of the most offensively skilled big men in the league. Senior Brandon Britt will look to carry momentum from his strong junior season. With a year of injury-free basketball under his belt, redshirt senior Kyle Gaillard should be more consistent as the offense’s fourth option. Head coach Tony Shaver also brought in four highly regarded freshmen. The bench production will be better, because it couldn’t be much worse.
What we worry about: The big question for William & Mary will come down to whether or not it can hold the leads it couldn’t hold last year. The added depth should help, but senior Julian Boatner needs to put it all together in his final year. The Tribe still takes (and makes) a lot of threes, and if Boatner can knock down a couple each game, it will be huge.
Considering how many games came down to the final few possessions, creating an extra few will be crucial. Last year, the Tribe forced its opponents into only 10.4 turnovers per game – 336th in the nation. Additionally, the College averaged only 7.1 offensive rebounds per game – 320th in the country.
With a deeper bench, Shaver’s crew won’t feel quite as taxed after a long game, which should allow them to do more of the little things that never seemed to happen in crucial moments last year.
Player who should take a step: Mike Barnes says it’s Julian Boatner (and he knows this team infinitely better than I ever will) but I’m looking for one of the post players to step up. Rusthoven committed an average on 3.47 fouls per game (18th most in the country) and fouled out five times.
Considering two of those contests were double-overtime road thrillers, it’s understandable. But it’s a huge emotional drain when one of your best players fouls out of a marathon game. I’ll say a more muscular Sean Sheldon puts in a solid 18 minutes a night, and gives Rusthoven and Gaillard cover when foul trouble strikes.
Crystal Ball: I’ll put them fifth, because although I like the potential, the Tribe has to become more consistent. But the Tribe snuck into the CAA Championship in 2008 and 2010. The tournament will take place in an even year, so this year could feature another Sunday Shocker for Shaver.
So long: Joel Smith, Jonathan Lee, Dinko Marshavelski
Welcome: T.J. Williams, Jimmy Marshall, C.J. Hill, Scott Eatherton (St. Francis transfer, redshirt junior), Kwesi Abakah (redshirt freshman)
What We Like: Last year, Northeastern’s forwards were put in a tough position. Quincy Ford, a natural wing, fought through back pain during the stretch run. Power forward Reggie Spencer was often forced to match up with the CAA’s biggest post players for 30 minutes each game, a tough challenge considering he’s 6’7”.
This year, those two will have significantly more help.
Adding Eatherton, a transfer from St. Francis who averaged 14 points and seven revounds two years ago, will give Spencer the low post companion he desperately needs, and another big forward Northeastern lacked last year (because Marshavelski was usually hurt).
It also allows Ford to play on the wing, where he gets his shot off over smaller defenders, and should be able to alter many passes in the Huskies’ zone defense.
The backcourt has been overhauled, but the experience David Walker and Marco Banegas-Flores gained manning the point for the first nine games of last year will do wonders. With Walker at the head of the point, Northeastern’s defense could be even better this year. There will be significantly more length for a team that lacked it last year.
Zach Stahl, Demetrius Pollard and Derrico Peck will fight for minutes at guard. Stahl was efficient in a reserve role last year, and Pollard had a few big games. Joel Smith was an All-CAA first team player, but the potential is there for the Huskies to get good production from his spot.
What we worry about: And so it goes in college basketball – you spend four years building a strength in one area, and graduation takes it all away. The reason Northeastern had a school-record 14 wins in CAA play was largely due to Smith and Jonathan Lee. Their experience and leadership is irreplaceable.
Really, the backcourt is the big question mark. Smith and Lee averaged about 30 points each game, and carried Northeastern to victory in the waning minutes of big games. Northeastern routinely let teams hang around, only to let Smith drill a few threes to seal the win.
So who takes the big shots this year? Most people think Ford, a unique 6’8″ forward with range, will be the go-to player, but it remains to be seen.
Player who should take a step: David Walker played with uncommon poise as a freshman. This year, he’ll be Northeastern’s primary point guard, and should continue to stuff that stat sheet with assists, steals and 3-pointers. He has the potential to have a great career.
Crystal Ball: The Huskies are one of the tougher teams to predict. They are a youthful, but talented bunch that will be one of the most feared teams in CAA play. It will be fun to see what Coen can do with a bigger squad, but you just feel better about other teams because that have more experienced guards. I really like Walker, and am excited to see Stahl get more run. Putting them sixth seems logical right now, but I have a feeling they could make that prediction look silly.
So long: Devon Moore, A.J. Davis, Alioune Diouf, Rayshawn Goins, Enoch Hood, Arman Marks, Gene Swindle
Welcome: Jackson Kent, Yohanny Dalembert, Paulius Satkus, Ivan Lukic, Thomas Rivard, Tom Vodanovich, Dimitri Cabarkapa (redshirt freshman)
What we like: Matt Brady, working alongside his own collegiate coach Mike Deane, led James Madison to its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1994. The Dukes were led by the laundry list of seniors mentioned above, but the freshmen (Taylor Bessick, Charles Cooke, Ron Curry, Andre Nation) provided hope for the future of Brady’s program.
The four sophomores are exciting, and their commitment to defense allowed Brady to field his best defensive team in his five years in Harrisonburg (and the top defensive team in conference play). It’s a foundation the Dukes can build upon.
For a team with 12 underclassmen, the best news from the offseason came when Andrey Semenov, the fiery Russian sharpshooter, was granted a sixth year of eligibility. I know, we can’t believe he’s still there either. Semenov will be a steady leader for his younger teammates, and will resume his role as one of the top three-point shooters in the CAA.
A player’s coach like Brady will fit the skills of his guys to the system he runs. And for a team with 12 scholarship players who are 6’4” or taller, he’ll know to take advantage of his team’s length.
What we worry about: We’re concerned that the list of newcomers and outgoing players took up so much space, and the fact that Andre Nation, one of the best defensive players in the CAA, won’t suit up until January.
Not to dismiss the young talent here, but there will be plenty of growing pains. Losing Devon Moore, the clutch playmaker, and A.J. Davis, the CAA Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player, cannot be understated. The freshmen have unique skill sets and backgrounds (five are foreign-born players), but it’s hard to know what to expect from them. Nation’s suspension means one of them will have to start immediately. It’s good for the long run, but things will probably be ugly before conference play.
Player who should take take a step: I’m excited to see what Ron Curry can do this year. After playing mostly off the ball last year, he’ll transition back to his natural position of point guard. It’ll be fun to see what Moore’s understudy can do with the ball in his hands 32 minutes each night.
Crystal Ball: Seventh seemed a bit low for the Dukes earlier in the offseason, but it works now that Nation will miss the first 15 games. It won’t be pretty in the early going, especially with only two nonconference home games. But this team will improve drastically from start to finish.
So long: Keith Rendleman, Tyree Graham
Welcome: Addison Spruill (JUCO), Ben Eblen (Alabama graduate, graduate student), Yemi Makanjuola ?? (Tennessee transfer, junior), Chuck Ogbodo ??
What we like: There’s a lot of new faces here – guys in dress suits and sweat suits. The roster is largely revamped, and that could be a good thing for a team that finished with twice as many losses as wins. Former UNC-Asheville coach Eddie Biedenbach and former Appalachian State coach Houston Fancher will join Buzz Peterson on the bench. We saw the effect veteran coaches had in Harrisonburg last season. Let’s hope UNCW can catch some of that mojo.
Although it’s come about in an unconventional way, the Seahawks have an experienced team. Peterson’s first year recruits have grown into seniors, but more importantly, he’s managed to pick up transfers that have experience playing in the SEC. JUCO transfer Addison Spruill is comfortable with the ball in his hands, and should become a reliable scoring option.
It took four years, but Ben Eblen (an Anthony Grant recruit) finally found his way onto a CAA roster. For a team that committed 14.3 turnovers per game, he could be the cure. Eblen will allow Craig Ponder, Chris Dixon and Tanner Milson to play off the ball most of the time. That trio manned the point for the Seahawks last year, will have more opportunities to drive the lane and spot up from three.
What we worry about: The Seahawks lost the best player from a team that wasn’t very good. And last year, when All-Everything forward Keith Rendleman was on the bench, it was a real struggle for the Dubmen. They were adequate at home, where they picked up wins over Northeastern, George Mason, and Georgia State. But they but won just one road game the entire season.
The big question will be getting consistent performances from a few guys every night. Last year, it was always Rendleman and a bunch of wild card performances. Dixon stepped it up in conference play to average 12.3 points per game, and committed fewer turnovers than Ponder and Milson. Is he the guy we can expect to be their leading scorer?
Cedrick Williams will need to play as consistently in road games (4.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 0.8 blocks) as he does in home games (9.0 points, 7.1 rebounds, 2.2 blocks). Milson, a potent three-point shooter, also struggled with such inconsistencies. Junior Freddie Jackson had a few nice games at the end of last year. Was that a sign of things to come?
Player who should step up: Eblen’s presence will allow Chris Dixon to play off the ball. Although Dixon was UNCW’s most consistent point guard last year, he’s also the team’s leading returning scorer. He seems like the best bet to be the go-to guy, and I expect more big strides in his second year of D-I hoops.
Crystal Ball: Eighth, but I actually like their chances to exceed preseason expectations – especially if Yemi Makanjuola is eligible. That would give them two tough defenders in the paint — which might be enough to move them above JMU.
So long: Stevie Mejia, Taran Buie, Matt Grogan, David Imes
Welcome: Zeke Upshaw (Illinois State graduate, graduate student), Chris Jenkins, Dion Nesmith (Monmouth graduate, graduate student), Jamall Robinson, Eliel Gonzalez
What we like: I think at this point, Joe Mihalich and Hofstra have clicked about as much as one could hope. After last year’s disastrous season, Mihalich inherited a team with just four scholarship players, but put in the work to allow his team to be competitive this season.
Dion Nesmith (Monmouth) and Zeke Upshaw (Illinois State) are graduate students who will play their final collegiate years at Hofstra. Presumably, Nesmith will get the bulk of the minutes at point guard, and Upshaw will vie with Jordan Allen and the freshmen for playing time on the wing. It’s a chance for these two to help turn around a program, and end their collegiate careers on high notes.
And of the guys who return, the frontcourt in particular looks solid. Stephen Nwaukoni and Moussa Kone can stand toe-to-toe with the best of the CAA frontcourts. Kone, who averaged 12.6 points over Hofstra’s final five games, looks like he’ll be great on Mihalich’s team. He runs the floor (and finishes) well, which should fit with the up-tempo offense Hofstra wants to play. Sophomore Jordan Allen is a versatile forward who does the little things.
The freshmen will be exciting. Point guard Eliel Gonzalez was a member of Puerto Rico’s National U16 team in 2011, and averaged 11 points on the international circuit. Jamall Robinson played on a loaded Paul VI team in the legendary WCAC, and averaged 13 points and eight boards. Chris Jenkins is a reputed sharpshooter who will play immediately.
What we worry about: The guys who would probably be the best players on the team (Juan’ya Green and Ameen Tanksley) will only be eligible to practice. The same thing goes for Brian Bernardi, who would probably be the best three-point shooter on the team.
Just like last year, the lack of depth at guard is alarming. Nesmith and Gonzalez will log tons of minutes – ultimately a good thing for Gonzalez, as he’ll get plenty of run over the next three years. Walk-on Adam Savion must continue to do the little things that don’t show up in the box score.
Player who should take a step: As I mentioned, I think Kone will thrive in the fast-paced offense, and continue to improve as he did late last season. I like what I saw towards the end of last year, and expect continued improvement.
Crystal Ball: It has to be ninth. I love what’s happened there over the past six months, but this season could be rough. There just aren’t many proven scorers here, and although that could change with some guys getting expanded roles, you simply can’t bank on it. The Pride will be an intriguing squad, but it’s difficult to expect a lot of wins in year one.
I realize that looks shockingly unoriginal when compared with the official preseason picks. Picking fourth through sixth is extremely difficult, and I’m heavily tempted to put UNCW above JMU.
So that’s that. I guess we need an All-CAA team
