The Scarlet Raptors are 6-11 on the season.

They have a 3 point shooter and an underneath player both averaging 19 points a game. After that, the well is dry.

Hard to take much, if anything, from the D3 game, but nice to see Kellman get a chance to flash what he can do. Still a lot to develop against higher levels of competition, but the strength and athleticism is clearly there. I believe he leads the team in dunks this season (Bart Torvik doesn't count shot data from non-D1 games, but he had Kellman w/ 3 dunks before this game, 2nd only to Aririguzoh & 3rd among Ivy freshmen behind Dingle and Ledlum), and showed some tenacity on the offensive glass.

Also good to see O'Connell knock down a 3 and dish out 2 assists. Will be interesting to see if he can gain minutes later in his career as he develops as well.

Kellman has athletic ability for sure with more of an inside game than his freshmen buddy, Evb, who is more versatile. Unfortunately, neither appears ready to back up Richmond especially if Arirguzoh gets in foul trouble. DesRosiers is also not a viable back up as well. The Tigers look like they will have a plentiful supply of athletic forwards but the center position is certainly a question mark after this year.

The IL Center position is stacked with Brodeur, Lewis, Atkinson and Richmond along with smaller versions, Choh and Knight. If Tape stayed this year, there would be 5 really good bigs with one junior -- Atkinson.

Next weekend, Richmond will be facing Knight and then Lewis. He needs to take on each player one on one defensively without any assistance especially Lewis. Offensively, he needs to take advantage of his height advantage against Dartmouth and simply outplay Lewis mano on mano. He will also need to do the same against Atkinson if the Tigers will have a chance to beat Harvard and Yale. Also, it will be interesting to watch Brodeur against Lewis on Friday night.

Some of the most competitive battles on the floor this year will be at the Center position and if someone rises above the others, it will be a competitive advantage. Arirguzoh's biggest issue is turnovers especially when he is doubled as well as getting into foul trouble but he is a PLAYER!
