I did eat a cheesesteak and I'd agree that Temple has quality scorers.Hope you got a cheesesteak for your trouble. VCUs defense has been good, but it looks amazing holding down crap opponents. Battle is one of the best scorers in the country. Dunn is better than anyone in the A10. They played well, and it created some opportunities for their other guys. It was the best game Temple has played this year. VCU will not see another 1-2 punch like that the rest of the year.
VCUs defense will probably stifle most of the A10, and be rated highly. But good offense will trump good defense.
There are some bad-to-mediocre teams in the A10 so I'd agree that our defense can stifle most of the A10. Thus far, SLU is the only A10 team that has DEFINITELY looked better than VCU. You can argue other teams would be the 2nd best team thus far (perhaps UMass), but overall it's a crapshoot and the non-games in December should make things clearer. I do agree that good offense will trump good defense. There aren't a ton of good offenses in the A10, but if we can't score than we are bound to drop one.
