Know your enemy- Florida A&M Rattlers

A&M is a fairly small team that we should dominate inside, but showed in exhibition they can hit the outside shot. If you judge them by last year, they stunk... and they are expected to stink again as they were picked last in the ultra tough MEAC conference.


A&M is coming off a trucking of Albany State (exh) 105-76. Being that we struggled with UAH we're probably in for a tough 30 minutes or so.

Prediction: struggle early, pull away late. Bama by 18. Hillman is the standout player.

Game time is 8:30PM EST (7:30PM CST)

Florida A&M could hang around for a little bit. They do return four starters. They like to run an up-tempo style.

Their starting five isn't too shabby. Rasheem Jenkins is a dependable point guard, Brandon Hosely is a JC transfer who averaged 18 points game at the JC level a year ago and Yannick Crowder is a 6'8 forward that led the team in blocked shots last season.

Alabama should win the game though. I hope to see some improvement from the previous two games. A&M is probably going to throw up a lot of perimeter shots, and you know Troy will as well so the perimeter defense needs to be better than it was in the two exhibition games. If you allow that many open looks, eventually a team is going to start knocking them down.
