So my question is will all the games being streamed over ESPN+? 

I do not believe so. This is from the press release.

Beginning with the 2018-19 athletic season, ESPN+ will be the home of all digital-only Atlantic 10 home events. This includes all men’s and women’s basketball games not televised, as well as all home Olympic sport events that are streamed.

Thanks Kurt

I agree with the basic premise made by 102 that the top 7 should be ready to hit the ground running with a combination of experience and talent should carry the team early on; but will need to get contributions from the freshmen. I suspect that you’ll see different freshmen making contributions depending on the opponent and game situations. Freshmen bigs should have a good opportunity to see the floor a bit more due to the needs up front. This could be good or bad depending on how quickly they can contribute. With Mike Hughes being the only returning center, I assume they will go with Marcus Weathers sliding into the 5 when Mike needs a break or has fouls; at least until one or more of the young bigs can show they can compete. This would give us a smaller but very mobile front line. Still the best case scenario would be for one of the bigs to grasp the opportunity at the backup to Mike Hughes as needed.

My guess is that Amari Kelly will surprise a lot of people and be the first back up to Mike Hughes.  He has a college ready body, and from what I have seen on video is a beast on the boards.  Certainly Swingle & Rotroff will get some minutes but they are not as developed in my opinion as Kelly.  But at this point who the heck knows you could be right about Marcus.

The biggest asset we have is Coach Dambrot.  I love this guy.  His strong will to win, knowledge of the game, and his ability to get the most out of his players is what makes this team dangerous.  I look at what he did last year in resurrecting Castro & Robinson, elevating Smith's game, and using a walk on effectively.  In my opinion this years team gives him way more, and better options, than he had last year in a league that is no where near as strong as last year.  Off the cuff I would say that anywhere between 20 to 22 wins are possible. Go Dukes!

I think there is no team as strong as last year's URI team, but I think the league will be much deeper than last year. Thus, while there are no games that I will mark as a loss from the door, there are many more land mines than last season.

Put me down for 20. The OOC is much tougher, and based on coaches and players lost from the league I will venture to guess the conference will be down slightly. Absolutely can’t wait to see what this season holds and I am optimistic.

20 wins, top 6 in the conference, AND NIT bid. Heard it here first.

The difference in the schedule is basically 2 games. ND and Penn State are substantially better than any team we played ooc last year. Marshall? About the same as the teams we played in Vegas, solid, but nothing really special. I guess Pitt will be somewhat better, as last year's team was about as bad as a P5 team can be, but of course we lost to them anyway so we can only go up there. I expect we'll be dogs vs ND and PSU, about even vs Pitt, and favored over anyone else we play at home.
 

[b]Uh CLK ND was in NIT and is a perennial NCAA team. Penn state won the NIT last year and should be decent this year as well. Marshall beat a 4 seed Wichita state team in the first round of the tourney last year and returned everyone. Pitt will be improved. Radford won the play in game and played in the first

Thanks, WEB and CLK.  On the 11pm news last night, there was a short, edited version of the interview.  Nice to see the interview in its entirety on the web page.

The Athletic Department and KD are doing a fantastic job of promoting the Duquesne basketball brand during the summer months.  When was the last time that you saw a segment on Duquesne basketball on a local newscast in June or July? 

They sure have,  For those who have not been able to see the MBB twitter account I have attached a link.  Check out all the videos and interviews.  Great job.

There was a brief blurb in there - called him Sin Carry.

That was added after I posted the link.  Good to see they read this board.

Living on campus in those days there was a very close connection between the team and the students.  Great team, great group of guys.

I do like how Coach Dambrot uses every bit of angle/edge he can get to attract talent and provide a support system for a young man who seems to prosper in a supportive environment.  Congratulations and Good luck to James in the classroom at Duquesne. 

I echo your comments.  Check out his highlights on Hudl to see his potential.
