    That's exactly what I was thinking. Being behind the opposing bench was a blast and something we looked forward to.

    Mel Rock was the leader of this group....I like my new seats but miss all the former band dudes et al....Brock provided trivia responses as quickly as one can imagine.....in a way basketball was my favorite sport having played with great players that went to Georgetown and Auburn.....never would have seen UL or football if a Shoulder injury wouldn't have taken my baseball scholly away!!!

    A few of the students I sit with were asking about this. The seats before the current student section that were right behind the bench were perfect and standard. They had points like was it was easy to get involved and rowdy right behind their bench and it was a great view of the game. Being behind the goal is really a terrible view of the game but I'm at least happy we FINALLY have an official student section. It was unofficially behind the visitors bench but those tickets were sold and lots of non students sat there as well. Even talked about football and basketball white outs, red outs, etc where the program will lay out shirts on the seats before people show up. That's a simple and cheap incentive for people to show out. Looking forward to maggards take on it but he also just got here so he didn't make too many changes before this season started.

    Any word on Kadavion Evans, or is his career done? With PJ struggling Evans could take some of those minutes if he could ever get healthy. I originally heard that they were shooting for December, now we are Jan 8th and still no word. He could if healthy pick up a few valuable minutes.

    ULM shoots the fewest FT in the league. And, that's pretty normal. But unlike a lot of previous years, they make them now. In fact, we average 10 more attempts PER GAME than they do.

    GS and App have more attempts than we do. But neither shoots 65%.

    This is not the first season the students have been in the end zone. If you watch a lot of CBB, the majority of the schools I see do it that way. It also frees up prime seating for sale. I'll be interested to see what attendance is like since school starts on the 10th.

    Evans is just beginning to practice.

    So far, I'm not seeing anyone who I'd trade a player on the floor for their player on the floor. Translation, we've got the best starting five , and then there's Stove. Nuff said.

    Didn't they try to mandate that students could no longer be behind the opponents bench?

    There is a SBC rule. I can't recall exactly what it is, but I think it's to keep students away from opposition.

    I agree, with you on the students in the end zone. I attend a number of Wake Forest games being that I live about 20 minutes from Winston Salem, NC and that is the norm and their students are into the games. They are big time in attendance for games and are very rowdy.

    Great news on K-Evans. Hopefully he can help down the stretch.

    I had read in "The Tab" that Wake Forest's student section was dead. It must have been talking about football.

    Yes, football wise their student section sux.....But basketball they are pretty strong. Remember you are talking about a school that has less than 5K undergrad enrollment.

    The dirty deacons come out strong for basketball traditionally. Now I have not been this year and they are only 8-7 so they probably are not getting the crowds they wanted. They had high expectations this year, as they went 19-14 last year, losing in the 1st round of the NCAA's.

    Well I can't find the article I read but here is one about basketball attendance (students) dropping at Wake Forest.

    This is a different kind of basketball team. I hope they can keep it up.
    The Cajuns only made 11 2 pt. field goals in the game...22 points.
    They made 10 3 pt. field goals for 30 points.
    They made 29 free throws for 29 points.
    That is an unusual box score.
    If this team keeps getting to the free throw line and they keep hitting 80+%
    they should win a lot of ball games.

    We're going to the basket instead of settling for jump shots. We're winning the inside battle. We're playing to our strengths. Marlin teams have never been especially good at a structured two point offense. And I'm damned fine with playing to your strengths.

    Our biggest strength (sometime to a fault) is the unselfishness of this team. They share the ball as well as any Cajun team I've watched since the early 70's.

    Agreed, but to a fault to few times to matter. We're still gonna have long periods where our offense isn't scoring the traditional way. Glad to see all the steaks, and free throws.

    Saturday was an example of this situation. Hit lots of threes in first half and Coastal took that away in 2nd half. As a result we drove it to the goal and got fouled. Buried them at the line. The fact we did not hit too many baskets in the 2nd half is not a big concern due to the fact our guys were able to get to the basket and Coastal had no choice but to foul us. Our guys are making them pay for doing that these days. Also, nice to see the Cajuns up high in so many national statistics. Wonder we are in rebounding as that has been a strong point in recent games.

    Our domination of the boards against Coastal through the first half and the first 10 minutes of the second is what got us the big lead, in my opinion.

    I think you're right. Interesting stat: In the last two games, the Cajuns have given up a total of ONE offensive rebound in the first half of the games.

    And you wonder why games are so lopsided at halftime.

    It was especially impressive against CCU who is a good rebounding team.
