Usually every year we have an idea as to who will be the starters , however , this season with so many new players it's anybody's guess as to who will start . Thomasson and Iorio are likely starters , it'll be interesting to see who the other starters will be . Thanks for the heads up on the game being on ESPN +.

Good interview without a lot of specifics. I actually like Paulus a lot because of the way he projects himself. This year will prove a test to his coaching abilities because of all the new faces. I would expect experience will mean a lot for his initial starters.

Agree Philly…GP seems like a really good guy who not only understands the game, but also knows what it takes to build a winning culture. It should be an exciting season with all the new faces in the line-up. GP spoke highly of 6-8 freshman forward Donovan Hill making progress during practice. He seemed to imply that transfers Gray and Mitchell will make an immediate impact in the front court complimenting Ilorio. Lots of experience in the backcourt as well coming from the juco ranks, along with 2nd team All-MAAC Noah Thomasson .

This is the first season that GP has had some good pieces to work with . He has good depth which should make competition fierce for playing time . With so many new players , it may take a while for the team to gel , but as the season progresses they will be a real sleeper come conference tournament time .

Obioha is the first sub on the front court. His body is totally changed from last year. Guess at least 50 lbs lighter.

Niagara up 13 at the half. 43-30. Braxton Bayless was pretty impressive with his rebounds, defense, and steals.

Donovan Hill didn't play any minutes at the half. Seems like everyone else did so not sure what's going on there. Overall solid half.
