    I think that Sharp and Cusick started because, after the pre-season, they might not. I would expect to see Carlino, Winder/Zylstra, Davies, Hawes and either Sharp (who looks much improved) or Austin, though he will probably back up Davies. Ambrosino will eventually see a lot of time and Cusick will be competing with Calvert and Delgado for minutes. This is a deep team which looks much improved on defense and, hopefully, better perimeter shooters. By the way, Emery and Calvert have both indicated that they will go on missions next year but should be back by the time Carlino graduates. I agree with red-shirting Delgado.

    I was surprised to see Sharp start at the 4 and Cusick at the 2. Although that line-up works against a team like SE OK St, I think we'll see Austin start at the 4 and Zylstra or Winder at the 2 against some of the tougher opponents.

    Davies looked very good. His shooting from distance has improved.

    Haws has not missed a step. He looks as good or better than he did his Freshman year.

    Carlino dished and shot the ball well. If he is consistent, this offense will be hard to stop.

    Calvert was my biggest surprise. He was very effective in relief of Carlino. We're set at PG for the next 8 years with Carlino, Calvert and Emery.

    Delgado has a great stroke and could contribute this year, but I'd still redshirt him to if Winder is able to return. If Winder's out, we'll need him this year.

    Hard to gauge much from a game like that. The team looked good though, as they should in an exibition.
