A CAA Tournament Final matchup? Scouting Towson

I hope we can all agree that scheduling a basketball game on the same Sunday that the AFC and NFC championship games are being played is without question – ridiculous.

And if you’re going to schedule a game, why do it up against the Denver-New England, which could end up being the most non-Super Bowl watched game in history.

Cougars look to rebound after loss to Hofstra; Scouting Northeastern

The loss to Hofstra on Saturday was as bizarre a loss as I’ve seen in a while.

I’m a stats guy, which I know can get me in trouble from time-to-time, but had you shown me the box from the CofC-Hofstra game without showing me the final score I would have said that the Cougars should have won that game.

Northeastern’s Scott Eatherton is averaging 16.9 ppg. 10.0 rpg0

Cougars go for 5th-straight win against Hofstra; Scouting Hofstra

The season isn’t over yet and I’m not going to make any judgments on the 2013-14 edition of the College of Charleston’s basketball team until after it’s over, but I think this is the team, the one we’ve seen the last four games, that many in Cougars Nation had expected to see when the season started.

Hofstra’s Zeke Upshaw is averagine 19 points a game.

Cougars hoping to build on Citadel win; Scouting Davidson

I think the College of Charleston’s game against Davidson is going to tell us a lot about the Cougars team this season.

I think it’s a barometer game for the Cougars. A win on the road against Davidson will be a good omen going into their first CAA conference schedule. A loss, and it’ll end up being more of the same – a roller coaster season.

Cougars looking to build on Old Dominion win; Scouting Kent State

It’ll be interesting to see how the College of Charleston comes out on Saturday against Kent State.

I think the Cougars tend to play to the level of their competition, but one thing that has plagued them a little bit this season has been their slow starts.

The Cougars cannot afford a slow start against Kent State.

Cougars need to regroup after Marist loss; Scouting Old Dominion

OK, no excuse to lose to Marist.

I don’t care how “dangerous” the Red Foxes were coming in. As Cougars head coach said, it’s an “embarrassing” loss at home.

The Cougars will need to regroup and do it quickly. Old Dominion, under former Virginia coach Jeff Jones, is playing better than they were a year ago when CofC handled them pretty easily.

Aaron Bacote

ODU guard Aaron Bacote is averaging 18.7 ppg.

CofC looking to build on Coker victory; Scouting Marist

The Cougars take on Marist, who has not won a game yet this season under first-year coach Jeff Bower.

A year ago, the Cougars beat Marist, 85-75, having one of their best shooting performances of the season. It was part of two-game road trip that featured a win over Vermont (62-50) as well.

Marist’s Chavaughn Lewis is averaging 16.7 points a game
