Ha! "Captain Obvious" back for another season...I think Jason Nelson has begun his Spiders career in an impressive manner...it looks like he could develop into the next great Spiders point guard...
and how about the other Jason? Roche!...his three point shooting tonight may be a sign that he really can shoot well against a higher level of competition...
if you didn't see the game, the video clips will give you a good glimpse at what both Jasons did tonight...
finally, Coach Mooney said somewhere along the way in preseason that he thought this squad could be strong defensively...I have no idea how good VMI and Northern Iowa will turn out to be but our defensive effort has smothered both of them...particularly in the second halves when the games were being decided...I expect we'll find out more about the Spiders defense Monday night against Charleston...they put 86 on the board tonight in a losing effort against #1 ranked UNC...
congrats to the team on the promising start to the season...it's been a fun week watching the new era of Spiders basketball...
