Not sure what could be better:
24-Hours of College Basketball?
You freaking kidding me?

GOTTA LOVE IT

Carnesecca Arena | Jamaica, New York

DETROIT TITANS 1-0
SAINT JOHN’S RED STORM 0-0

Saint John’s

Head Coach Steve Lavin’s return
Following Prostate Cancer, 1-year interval/hiatus
In Lavin’s absence Johnny’s really struggled
SJU: 13-19 Year (11TH in Big East)

This should have been expected
SJU went from #1 MOST Experienced Team,
SJU started 5 seniors in Lavin’s 09-10 Tourney Season) TO
SJU’s #345 (DEAD-LAST) Experienced 2010-2011 Team

SJU does return decent talent
Erratic Soph Harrison poured in 17 PPG for Jonnies

Moreover, really don’t see this SJU team making a big jump
The SJU Roster that got so many ‘GREAT REPS’ vs. Big East Talent
Had not ONE Player OVER 1.07 “OTR”
Additionally, SJU still has a serious size discrepancy
St John’s gets HELP this year
TXAM Branch will bolster Jonnies Rebounding
Yet isn’t eligible till DEC 2012

Detroit

Titans were a remarkable story in 2011-12
Detroit was wallowing at 7-10 (1-4 Horizon)
Then ripped off 15 of 18
Captured a miraculous 4 Game Conference Tourney Crown
By hammering Horizon Favorite Valpo 70-50 in the Conference Title
Till Falling to NCAA Runner-Up KU 65-50 in THE Tourney

Detroit not only has 5 of 7 Key Contributors back for 2012-13
Titans expect to see bigger things from a Juwan Howard, Jr
Detroit’s #1 Issue is SIZE
The Sr’s HC McCallum Lost
Were DU’s 2 Top Boarding Post Men

Nevertheless, Detroit is primed to pick up nearly where they left off
w/THREE JC Transfers, in addition to Howard (+2” to 6’7”)
Expected to shoulder much of the Detroit Board & Post Defense
DETROIT’s McCallum is a Coach on the Rise
Main thing keeping McCallum in Detroit?
HC Son, Super Jr, Ray McCallum, Jr
HORIZON TOURNEY MVP
Could have gone just about anywhere
Chose 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 High
And Detroit has been steamed a little
w/early Tip, and St John’s playing Game 1
I 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.
