BigEast.org is previewing each team, and today they hit up the Friars. Pretty fair analysis here. Nothing we don’t know already, but figured I’d pass it along.
Storylines: The Friars will still be a young squad this season, but Council and Dixon proved themselves last season as freshmen. Brooks has been a productive scorer throughout his career. Some of the freshmen will get long looks to fill in at the other positions. Gerard Coleman could help right away. Like Brooks, Coleman can play the big guard or on the wing. Dre Evans may be slotted this year to back up Council at the point. Forward Ron Giplaye is a strong, physical player who may contribute immediately around the basket. Forwards Brice Kofane and Lee Goldsbrough also will compete to earn a spot in the rotation>
