    Fully agree. As good as Shawn was, when it came to leadership last year he seemed to defer to Bryce last year. Not a knock on Shawn, many great players are not necessarily leaders. I.E., Sir Charles "I'm not a role model" Barkley.

    Even with the soft schedule, we're still winning and looking pretty good doing it. Since this was supposed to be a down year, this is a welcomed surprise.

    Exactly, they aren't playing down to lesser competition. Going to the Domecoming made me pumped to attend more home games this year.

    This is how a superior team is supposed to treat an inferior team. No doubt Loyola will be the same, then it's time to stuff the CajunDome for the LTUR bulldogs. Home crowd advantage or not that will be a real test no doubt.

    You can tell a lot about a team if they simply do what they're supposed to do.

    Exactly. You can only beat who they put in front of you. Them not playing down to the competition and taking care of business is great sign.

    My observations of the arena.

    Interesting that all tickets are general admission. Imitating the Techsters by putting blue tarps in the upper level seats. They must have worked out a co-op with LoTech to get them on sale.

    The good thing about GA is it allowed us to sit at mid court. Kudos to my brother for getting us free tickets.

    Food and beer were dirt cheap. All beers were $4 for 16 oz cans. They have a nice set up behind their south goal with a bar area set up in the arena. Allows you to sit at pub tables and enjoy your brew and free popcorn.

    Most of the McNeese crowd were followers of PJ Hardy from St. Louis Catholic. McNeese really needs to find them some fans. There had more 4 years ago when we went.

    Good thing about no fans is we got to park real close.

    BTW, weather was pretty bad. Glad we were inside

    Yes. I think in some ways, not having Shawn Long has helped the ball movement and forced guys to step up and contribute instead of leaning on Shawn for everything. I'm still worried about team rebounding moving forward, especially when we start playing more talented teams, but this team has been a pleasant surprise.

    I'm not sure what the team percentage was coming into this game but Wright was shooting under 60% and Barkley was shooting under 70% so I assume the team % wasn't all that great but they really shot it well. They are going to have to make sure they continue to improve there though as close games can be decided by that stat alone.

    Well for what statistics are worth.
    The Cajuns are 2 in the SBC in total rebounds and 46th in the nation.

    9 ULM 208
    10 Ga. Southern 224
    11 Texas St. 248
    12 Georgia St. 325

    The Cajuns are 1st in the SBC in rebound margin and 10th in the country.
    SBC Rank Team NAT Rank
    1 Louisiana 10
    2 Coastal Caro. 64
    3 Little Rock 68

    Bryce Washington is ranked in the top 10 national in total rebounds, offensive rebounds and defensive rebounds.

    So far this season we are averaging the same number of rebounds that we did last year. We are also averaging 2 more than we did two years ago, 3 more than we did 3 years ago and 8 more than we did 4 years ago.

    I think these numbers will equal out once we start playing some good competition. We got outrebounded by Montana State and by Delaware State, neither of teams are very big. Since we don't have a lot of size this year, we're going to have to do it with a team approach. I am more concerned when we start playing some of the teams in our conference who have really good frontcourts.
