    The O looked much more purposeful and smoother with good ball movement than I recall seeing in a while. Hardly any forced shots unless I missed them, as I was multi-tasking and also switching back and forth on the ACC football games. Part of that could be the level of competition, of course, but it is still encouraging, especially for an opener.

    Go Hokies!!

We're also obviously looking to push the ball up the floor whenever possible. I realize that we're very early into the James Johnson era, but so far I like what I'm seeing.
    Much more efficient against the zone as well.

    Why are so many people so down on Barksdale? So he missed a couple shots and had a couple iffy fouls called on him. He played hard...ETSU had one physical banger who was rooting guys out...CJ shared the ball nicely to a cutting EG vs the zone, he just couldn't quite finish a couple rebounds and shots...give him a chance to get used to extended playing time...it was his first start
