They play a hard core press. Hopefully the Bulldogs slice through it like soft butter. Need to make 'em pay so it goes away...

UNCW looks much better than Kenpom 178.  Tied for first in the CAA (15th conference/Valley is 11th).  Athletic and run the floor.  6'6 Jaylen Sims leads the way.  Fornes, Okauru and Sims all shot over 140 three pointers at 34%. 
6'2- 6'7 lineup---  one kid, 6'9/230 Kelly, off the bench and sees about 15 minutes. 

Believe they can beat Seahawk press.  Would be nice to see not only work the backdoor, but have Brody get a couple early to help 'Dogs go inside/out...  I'd like to see Drake go to the basket and get Sims in foul trouble.

For the season on KENPOM 285th EFF FG%, 2PT % 291, 3PT 248th.

However, today vs VMI, 10-25 from three for 40%, 48% from the floor and 21-25 from the line.

Not sure if I'm encouraging anybody outside of DeVries and Okay to shoot long, but Wilmington, defensively, is 317th against the three. 
Drake is going to be probably -7.

(Minus their best player, #5 Florida Atlantic lost to #12 Northern  Colorado)

That's defeatist, why even talk about the press like we should be concerned about it. This sounds like Press Derangement Syndrome. 

Drake needs to play our game and I think we've got the team to impose our will without being concerned about what the other team is going to do.

I saw that. Can't read too much in to that, but I like our odds and it bodes well for us.

Well 3 games in 3 days, short bench, and I know Drake has the player's to impose their will, not "our's", ya jack wagon. So yes, I'd be concerned about what the other team is going to do, particularly a press.
