As a couple of teams have started there exibition debuts, there have been a couple of stumbles, thrillers, and excitment.
Some of the unimpressive scores.
#25 Syracuse Orangemen lost their second eibition game against Le Moyne is a stunning 82-79 loss.
#4 Kentucky Wildcats had a what-to-be ugly win Campbellsville with a 74-38 win. The defense looked pretty impressive, but the offense showed a bit weak. Grant, star John Wall did not play. But Pre-Season all american Patterson did not put up the impressive number Kentucky would like to see early finishing with only 4 points (2-7), 5 rebounds, 6 turnovers in 31 minutes.
Team's that looked fairly impressive in there debut.
#1 Kansas Jayhawks won there first game 107-68. Some people recall that a number 1 team shouldnt even allow 68 points to a lousy team in Exibition team, but the preseason all-americans did put up great numbers with Sherron Collins having 27 points and Cole Aldrich with 24. Also stud Freshman Xavier Henry finished with 20 points.
Teams that will still have an impact with the loss.
Memphis- This team lost about everyone one of there Sweet Sixteen team, but still are here to make a statemant that they are not gone and not forgotten.
Oklahoma- With the number 1 draft pick in Blake Griffin gone,they still return a stud sopomore in Willie Warren and Senior Tony Crocker to lead the way. The sooners should be just fine.
Team's that need to regain momentum.
Missouri- Losing Leo Lyons and 1st rounder Demarre Carroll is going to hurt. But in order for this team to stay in the tention of the Big 12 and keep fighting. The bench must come on and help leading role players in JT Tiller and Zaire Taylor.
Siena- With Kenny Hasbrouck gone, the saints must find somebody to step into his spot and fill the late, up-coming star in order to gain that respect that they had a year ago.
With still a lot of exibition games left to be played, we will continue to keep an eye on all of these teams and hope for better success or wish for the dominance of Division one teams to keep in roll.
