-- Better, I suppose. Still sloppy, and for a team that supposedly wants to run, we sure don't run the break very well.

-- In regards to rebounding and turnover margin, the early indications are all bad. We've yet to force an opponent to turn the ball over on more than 20% of their possessions. We out-rebounded Rider by the slimmest of margins, but this was on the strength of offensive boards, as we weren't good at the defensive end.

-- Where have you gone, Dennis Horner?

-- One assist from the point guards in 40 minutes.
