High Point has a very big 6'8 red shirt center that you have not accounted for in your review- He IS VERY PHYSICAL DOES NOT JUMP WELL Their Freshman are young and probably not ready to play Brown has improved his shooting range- Great leaper-Chaney very good when he is free inside- Has limited shooting range- Sometimes loses interest in game or zones out-Weakness- guards can't shoot and I question weather the team itself is a very good shooting team- There is a sophomore big white kid that will come in off the bench who is probably their best shooter

Thanks for the extra input. I don't really know these teams very well. So, I tend to look more at only stats in these preseason previews. I agree that their weakness is definitely guards but Chaney and Brown can really cover their weaknesses well. I expect us to pack it in and make them try to beat G from the outside. We can discuss more when the game gets closer.
