Kempton is a beast. I wonder if he has what it takes to make it in the NBA.



I would bet he gets some looks. It will depend on whether he can sustain this all season. The success of McCollum and Muscala in the league should make teams take the PL a little more seriously.

I don't think Kempton right now is as good as MM was as a senior. MM was better defensively and a better rebounder. Kempton may have better post moves - but he won't be able to plat the post very often against NBA-level payers.

MM also is a significantly better ball-handler. Had an assist,rate twice that of TK and a turnover rate half that of TK.

Kempton has no NBA future. He's simply not skilled enough. Great college player especially at low major level.

Syracuse was 6 at the half and ended up pulling away and winning 99-77


It was way above 30 at one point until Hankerson went off. He ended with 10 3's a carrier dome record for a visitor.
Ray Bucknell!

As if Tim Kempton weren't enough to worry about, last night Lehigh freshman Pat Andree hit TEN three-pointers, including his first 8 attempts from deep, as Lehigh trounced St Francis (PA) 100-67 (Kempton and Austin Price each had 21 points.)

When I first saw that on espn.com, I thought that it was a typo. 10 threes is a lot of threes!

Hope the Bison are working on their perimeter defense. First Hankerson, now this kid.

Dunkum was a project who missed all of last year with a knee injury and hadn't played a minute this year. Going to Creighton as a walk-on. In the "small world" department, an article mentioned that he would take over a practice spot for injured Zach Hanson. Hanson was a Bison recruit at one point and is the first cousin of Mike Muscala.

Don't look now, but the Bison are moving up KenPom.com's rankings. #126 as of today. Also, Lehigh is back in the top 100 at #98.

The Rest:
Boston U: 172
HC: 188
Army: 231
Loyola: 257
Navy: 270
Colgate: 285
American: 317
Lafayette: 327

It would be nice to see American and Lafayette move up the list a bit so that they are in the 200s and not the 300s.

As we approach the Christmas break, here is what the current Pomeroy predictions are for the final PL win totals in league (out of 18 games):


Lehigh . . 13.6
Bucknell . 12.6
Boston . . 11.0
Holy Cross 10.3
Army . . . . 9.0
Loyola . . . 8.1
Navy . . . . 7.6
Colgate . . 7.2
American . 5.9
Lafayette . 4.8


Looks reasonable in most cases, although I expect American to do better. They have the league's top freshman, PG Nelson, and a very good freshman center. Delante Jones has been in a bit of a slump, but I think they will do better in league play. Boston U might be a threat to surpass 11 wins also. Army has been a huge surprise thus far. Can they keep it up?

American plays at Villanova tonight. If they lose by less than 20, I'll be shocked.

Pomeroy makes Villanova a 31-point favorite. Whether they cover may depend on how long Jay Wright leaves in his starters.

Pomeroy was wrong. Nova wins by 42, 90-48. That's embarrassing. HC, Boston, & Army all leading in their games.

Speaking of blowouts, Lafayette women lost to Drexel 81-39. HC getting doubled up at Arizona St. 58-29 with 4:00 to play.

1. it should be noted that that is the same Drexel team that lost to the Bison by 12. So far the Teresa Grentz era at Lafayette is not going well. I suspect it will not end well either, although we won't know for a few years.

2. HC led Arizona 11-8 after the first quarter. Ended up losing by 30.

A couple of interesting match-ups tonight with HC@Boston and Lehigh@Army. Lehigh plays @ Boston on Monday.

Boston University didn't score a field goal in the last 11 minutes of the game but beat Holy Cross 61-55 anyway.

Sounds like ours wasn't the only ugly game.

Amazingly for an 8-minute span, from 11:01 until 3 minutes remained, both teams only scored 3 points apiece.
