DETROIT TITANS 1-0SAINT JOHN’S RED STORM 0-0
Head Coach Steve Lavin’s returnFollowing Prostate Cancer, 1-year interval/hiatusIn Lavin’s absence Johnny’s really struggled SJU: 13-19 Year (11TH in Big East)
This should have been expectedSJU went from #1 MOST Experienced Team,SJU started 5 seniors in Lavin’s 09-10 Tourney Season) TOSJU’s #345 (DEAD-LAST) Experienced 2010-2011 Team
SJU does return decent talentErratic Soph Harrison poured in 17 PPG for Jonnies
Moreover, really don’t see this SJU team making a big jumpThe SJU Roster that got so many ‘GREAT REPS’ vs. Big East TalentHad not ONE Player OVER 1.07 “OTR”Additionally, SJU still has a serious size discrepancySt John’s gets HELP this yearTXAM Branch will bolster Jonnies ReboundingYet isn’t eligible till DEC 2012
Titans were a remarkable story in 2011-12Detroit was wallowing at 7-10 (1-4 Horizon)Then ripped off 15 of 18Captured a miraculous 4 Game Conference Tourney CrownBy hammering Horizon Favorite Valpo 70-50 in the Conference TitleTill Falling to NCAA Runner-Up KU 65-50 in THE Tourney
Detroit not only has 5 of 7 Key Contributors back for 2012-13Titans expect to see bigger things from a Juwan Howard, JrDetroit’s #1 Issue is SIZEThe Sr’s HC McCallum LostWere DU’s 2 Top Boarding Post Men
Nevertheless, Detroit is primed to pick up nearly where they left offw/THREE JC Transfers, in addition to Howard (+2” to 6’7”)Expected to shoulder much of the Detroit Board & Post DefenseDETROIT’s McCallum is a Coach on the RiseMain thing keeping McCallum in Detroit?HC Son, Super Jr, Ray McCallum, JrHORIZON TOURNEY MVPCould have gone just about anywhereChose to play for his father at UDM
This Detroit team is loaded w/experience &Primed for a HUGE Season
Not a SIZE Issue (as DET would face v NEARLY all other B-East Teams)
DET should be able to get the Screen-Away great Mid-Range Pin-Down Looks they like
Do believe this number is a BIT HighAnd Detroit has been steamed a littlew/early Tip, and St John’s playing Game 1I like the under & still like Titans enough at Over 1 Possession

Doggone Pace was JUST RITE thru Halftime, till Jonnies warmed up from Deep. (66 Half, on Pace for 132).
Nice comeback for SJU.
