Top 5 Things Likely to Give Coach Wolff a Brain Hemorrhage

There will be plenty of bright spots and highlights for the Terriers this year, but here's a few things that could be a snag:

1. J.J Redick's jump shot - Even AE Defensive Player of the Year 2003-04 Shaun Wynn won't be able to shrink this guy's range on Nov. 14th.

1(a). The Cameron Crazies of Duke University - Has BU ever played in such an uninviting atmosphere? I submit that they have not.

2. Tag-team Albany guard combo Lucious Jordan and Jamar Wilson - Albany's got a lot coming back, and these two are the cream of their crop. The late season matchup at Albany's "Big Purple Growl" could be huuuuuuuge.

3. Hartford monster Kenny Adeleke - He'll only be a Hawk for one year, but this transfer from Hofstra is a beast in the paint. Our inside game is already a bit suspect, and Adeleke could expose that hole in a big way.

4. Ex-Terrier Etienne Brower's new school, UMass - Let's just say E's departure from BU was less than amicable. Wolffie would love nothing more than to stick it in the face of his former player, but a loss to the Minutemen would be a bummer.

5. Harvard/Canisius/UNH/Rider/UMBC - If anything grinds Wolff's gears, it's losing to teams he knows they should beat. A loss to any of these teams will send Wolff straight to the emergency room (and the Terriers straight OUT of the NIT). Just don't get caught in the locker room after any of those games!

1. Forget about Duke
1a. Forget about Duke

The Terriers are going to have a blast playing in that atmosphere and they have no dilusions of winning. All their trying to do is have a respectable showing - the folks in Cameron (and anywhere else in the college hoop world) don't even expect that so we've got absolutely nothing to lose. Maybe, just maybe, this game will lead to a future game at Agannis.

2. Talented twosome with zero discipline - they will shine in the meaningless games, but falter under pressure.

3. Agreed, but don't forget we've got a few bodies (big O and big Ben) and 10 fouls to give if we want to bang him around a bit.

4. Of course, EB must sit this year and unless UMass's program completely falls apart, I don't see him hitting the floor much in the future either. Good riddance.

5. Totally agree.

You're right about the talented/undisciplined duo - never done a thing when it counts. Let's hope they never do!

And yeah, E could have been a good AE player - but we don't need his 'tude around (more on him in a future post)

'tude or not, he was a big scorer. I saw that at midnight mania, two years ago. That kids got a great first step and ups like we can only dream of. Also, if he returned, he'd be our highest scorer. I know it's sad, but, whatever. we can definitely make due without him.

What about JJ Jumper? His dance moves are always a snag.

Lucious is our King!

I went to HS with Lucious... he'll be the king when he comes through in the clutch

Wait a second... is that Murph or Davis or Hutch? It's a little fuzzy, but I faintly remember a "Lucious is my king" scream from the HS games at Colonie High

He probably doesn't remember me, but I played tag football with Lucious in first grade. he was ahead of me a year, but we had recess at the same time. I could tell back then he was pretty athletic.
