Davidson has been an abject failure in the non-conference. As usual, they will turn it on by January and compete for an at-large, but that hurts the conference because it pulls down teams that performed well before league play starts.
You're probably right, but maybe they just collapse? They have not looked good by any means and have little depth.

What caused their drop in 2 point defense? from 47.3% to 53%, that is the glaring statistic so far...

Davidson is as soft as a baby's bottom inside. They got torched by marcus howard in part because he encountered no resistance any where on the floor including at the rim.

Not sure. Based on their comments after games it seems the current scheme has the Big Strudel running guards off the perimeter which is leaving lanes to the rim open and wearing him out. You'd have to ask Basketball Brain Genius Race Bannon why this is desirable.

They are down two starters in Frampton and Pritchett. Frampton has reliable range just inside the gym door and was leading 3pt shooter in A10 during conference play last year, has good handles and a tough minded on ball defender. Pritchett is their true glue guy—tough defender, good rebounder and will hit the 3 when left open.

Pritchett was considered a possible major talent in HS but had terrible medical with bad knees sort of like how Jack Gibbs fell in their lap—unlike Jack though, his knees have never gotten right. Frampton just left school/team last week for personal reasons—no one knows if/when he is coming back....or at least, it hasn’t been shared publicly.

Missing those two have really exposed how ordinary JAG is when there are no alternative ball handlers and help on the defensive side vs. quick opposing guards. Kellen Grady is their go-to and has stepped up his game scoring wise, but he is a suspect ball handler and while willing, not a very good defender.

Without a healthy Pritchett and present Frampton, they are just not very good on either side of the ball. They are in a tough spot for sure, hope they get some good news soon—because its better for the league.

Appreciate the reply - didn't realize Frampton was still out. He definitely takes a lot of pressure off Gudmundsson and Grady. I'd rather they were good to help the league as well, but if they can't turn it around in a hurry, I'll be rooting for a true collapse. Getting the Wildcats after they MildKat up the non-con would be quite annoying (although I still like how we match up with them at full strength and Dayton for that matter)

Didn't realize Frampton just disappeared. I assumed it was something like a family crisis.

Did he just walk out in the Wake Forest game? That was the fewest minutes in his career.

I don’t think he just vanished....it was announced as a LOA when he didn’t travel to Orlando.

Really don’t know what’s up—my buddy is an ex coach and is close to the program there, but he has gone full-on Sgt Schultz on me!
