Preseason game- vs Stillman 11/6

Game is 8PM EST (7PM CST). You can watch it on rolltide.com (subscription), listen to it on the radio (in AL), or find an internet feed to listen to.

Quick notes on Stillman:
- ended last season 17-11
- one player taller than 6'7"
- 3 of their top 4 scorers return this year
- Damian Ford is the only outside threat (.387 from 3)

Prediction: we should beat them by 24. unless their incoming freshman bring something new to the table, they can't take advantage of any of our weaknesses. I hope we use this 'scrimmage' to work inside with Jacobs/Gueye/Engstrom/Pollard, get a few good open 3 looks for Lacey and Cooper, and have Releford get back to driving the lane (which disappeared towards the end of last season).

Bobby: Until Trevor develops a consistent jump shot, his ability to drive the lane will be severely diminished by opposing teams.

Steele and Engstrom may not play tonight due to injuries (groin for Steele; foot for Engstrom).

So many things I'm looking forward to seeing out of this group, but the play of Pollard/Obosohan and the development of the sophomores (Lacey, Randolph, Jacobs and Cooper) is at the top of the list.

Oops, I misspelled Obasohan.
