I had high hopes at the beginning on the year when I looked at this roster on paper and how the PT would be divided. Not so much the case now.


It became a rebuilding year when you lost Sears and BVP. When you are replacing your offense, it is always rebuild mode. You can get depth out of the portal, but to expect to replace Sears and BVP from the portal is dreaming.


Replacing offense isnít always rebuilding mode and you can find more than depth in the portal. Sure, itís challenging to replace exact offensive production year-to-year, but good programs can manage those blows. Ali Ali took his 14 ppg to Butler, but Akron replaced it with 9 ppg from Hankerson and 7 ppg from Hunter via portal to compliment Castenada and Freeman.

Buffalo lost Mballa and his 13 ppg to the portal, but added nearly 34 ppg from Powell, Adams, and Foster. Williams and Segu also graduated and averaged 19 ppg and 15 ppg,respectively.

Point being, both Akron and Buffalo lost key pieces to the portal and have managed by what they added it through it. So, this didnít have to be rebuilding year. We just didnít add right talent.


Can you find me how many schools replaced their top two scorers with two portal guys and still having the same success.


Sure, Iíll stick with a mid-major. FGCU ó lost its top two leading scorers from last year (one to graduating and another to the portal) and two of its top three scorers this season are from the portal. Currently, FGCU is 13-6, after going 22-11 a season ago. Itís doable.



I said top two, not two of three, two of four. Sears and BVP accounted for 45.5% of our scoring last year. And damn, what a deep list. I'll ask again, though, top two scorers, and replaced with the top two.

Now to supprt Boals point, this years Bobcats are scoring MORE PPG than last years 25 win team did. Some of you all crying about offense, but Boals is obviously on the right track talking about the defense!!!

If you want to split hairs, go for it. The difference between scorers two and three this season for FGCU is a single point. Like I said, itís doable.
