    Word is that NBA scouts will be there to see CJ and perhaps the best player in the NEC, RSr 2G Shane Gibson. Thru 4 games, Gibson is averaging a team high 15.0ppg and 3.8rpg. His backcourt mate is So PG Phil Gaetano dishes out 6.8 apg. Should be fun to watch the PL’s best backcourt duo go head-to-head with the NEC’s best in Gibson and Gaetano.

    Tip is at 2 o’clock on Sunday. Who can make it? While it’s the Pioneers home opener, there should be plenty of good seats available. The team drew an average of 729 fans to their games last year. Should make Lehigh feel right at home.

    I was so pissed to learn this was sunday after thanksgiving, because it means there is no way I’m venturing on I95 traffic down to CT for this one. So frustrated, side note, anyone going to the Q on Tuesday night?

    00 – I’m banking on the traffic being not too bad for the mid-day Sunday game. I’ll drive up from North Jersey but unable (family commitments) to be there on Tuesday when we face a far tougher test in Hamden (Quinnipiac). Any chance of you getting down for that game? Need first hand reports.

    65 – You’ll be okay from north jers, but no way I’m risking getting back up to NE at 430 on Sunday, maybe I need to get braver! I am likely a go for Tuesday night.

    Rich – Where did you see that? I had read on twitter about a bike test but heard no results? Only place I saw him listed as starter was on the game notes on lehighsports.com, but they have had him listed as a starter for every game so far. I am praying you’re right, I just haven’t been able to find it at all.

    It would be a game changer with him in the flow. He has a tendency to set the tempo, much like Adams did when he entered the game. The best to him and the team.

    BJ hasd been cleared to play. But, not expected to see action for another week. (Highly reliable source)

    Don’t forget you can stream the game for free through NEC Front Row:

    http://www.necfrontrow.com/webcast.php/SHU-492/

    You have to register, but it’s well worth it – not only for the price, but you also get the Quinnipiac (11/27) and St. Francis PA (12/8) games as well.

    65 is seeing a treat, 49 at the half, CJ and Gabe solid as usual, dead eye with 3 catch n shoot 3’s by my count. CS with a nice half off the bench, came in and get in the lane and set guys up…

    Would love to see goldy play about 5 of the last 10 minutes here in this blowout of a game.

    00 and 90 – you guys from the NE can appreicate this……….I turned around at the Tappan Zee Bridge and returned home. Traffic was a nitemare. Was probably going to worse coming back after the game. Did like you and other fans did, I imagine, watched the game on NEC Network. Tired of the behind the basket video but all in all an awesome performance. Will make the Tuesday night game @ Quinnipiac. Figure a 1:45min. drive. Worth it!
