As the first exhibition game of the season, this game is likely to expose a few of the team's major weaknesses, but only to those carefully watching.  The usual result of contests between Division I top five and Division III games is not a close contest, and nobody expects one for very long tonight.

What I hope to see this evening:

  • Strong, physical play on the interior;
  • Crisp, unselfish passing;
  • A commitment to defend, even if the execution is below average;
  • Strong, useful screens;
  • Attack, attack, attack in transition.

Let's see what we get in our first real game.

Go, 'Cats!
