Syracuse vs. St. Rose

Alright folks, the time we've been waiting for is almost upon us. The Cuse faithful can see this extremely young and talented team mesh for the first time outside of Manley (granted it's in the Dome, so not too far outside).

To sum up Saint Rose:
  • Their PG, DeAugustino is the reigning Conference POY (17ppg, 4.8apg, 2.0spg) and handy defensively. This will give us a good gauge of Flynn and Jardine handling the ball and well, I guess we get to see Josh Wright against him as well...
  • Shanty Robinson is their key post man (10 and 6 per game), granted he is only listed at 6'4," so I don't really know what to say about him. their tallest player is only 6'8."
  • Will Monica is the shooter, and will be the one to test the zone, letting us see how well we rotate out, and cover.
Overall its a team with limited size. They put up a 22-10 record last year, making the NCAA's in Division II. We shouldn't be in for a Michigan State type performance, and this will give the young guns a good stepping stone in to the world of college hoops at Cuse.
