Wright St. Thoughts/VCU Preview

Last nights game went exactly how it should have on paper. We dominated an over matched Wright St. team. I wouldn’t take anything out of this game as an indicator of success or failure. The only thing that this game showed me was that the team plane arrived on time in Buffalo and that everyone was on it. Wright St. was absolutely terrible and we exploited all of our obvious advantages.

The VCU game is going to be a legitimate test. VCU outplayed a highly overrated Duke team with tremendous guard play and a disciplined, balanced press. Eric Maynor will be the best player on the court Saturday, believe it or not. This kid has NBA written all over him and he is going to give Graves or whoever we have on him plenty of trouble. Our inside game has to be present, we need a big game (like 20+ points 10+ boards) out of Gray and the combination of Kendall/Biggs/Young. They have a distinct advantage in the backcourt and the way that they press is going to negate our guard play for most of the game. Watching the game yesterday I was praying that Duke would pull it out because we match-up so much better against them. I hate to be a pessimist but VCU is going to give us all we can handle.

I’m not making a prediction for this game because I don’t want to say what I think is going to happen. We couldn’t have gotten a team that matches up better against us this early than VCU. Be afraid Pitt fans be very afraid of this game.

    I agree Jason I was secretly pulling for Duke as well…VCU plays to all of our weaknesses and I am afraid of this game

    I don’t see what we are going to do against the press and their backcourt. Maynor may eat us alive.
