We'll see. There could be a transfer out there who could play immediately. Right now, I actually feel pretty good about Brown stepping into that role with the incoming freshman playing backup.

After 1 decent game? I'm all for giving him more of a shot based on that game, but to anoint him as the starter next year after 1 good game that's a stretch.

Yes, after 1 decent game. It's also the first game he's been given enough minutes to make any kind of judgement. And, he did it against a team that had players superior in size at every position. Let's not forget he's not just a freshman. He's had success on the court above HS which is why he's on our bench. What i'm saying is I am more comfortable with him than any player we have now. And unless the freshman PG recruit knocks it out of the park, he looked in control and showed he could handle the ball in a pressure situation without turning it over and made good decisions. I've already stated a transfer may come in and make a splash, but if not, he can handle the job. I'm also going off statements about his performance in practice. He definitely has the skills.

You have to also think that a full off-season already knowing the offense that McGrath runs will benefit Brown and Gary. Both were late additions and didn't get to campus until summer school. That will give them the upper-hand over Toews in the beginning and if the incoming Freshman is still the best option as a starter, we would be getting quite a player.

It is very important for all Seahawks opponents to defend the three or there could be a three-peat in about 6 weeks.

For anyone paying attention in the league knows UNCW is now a threat to win in Charleston. You cannot win at Elon, take Northeastern to OT and beat Towson and not be a threat. I still think Charleston is a clear favorite, but you guys are in the next group of contenders.

As fans, we're going to have to see not just progression, but a string of wins before we are firm believers. Wins over JMU and William and Mary at home this week would make me a believer. If we beat JMU and lose to the Tribe, i'd still have reservations.

It's fair, and i think he surely has that potential. But i personally need to see more.

I agree with this. Below is how I see it at this point. Obviously, it could change. Note that this is not in any particular order.

True Contenders
Charleston
Towson
William & Mary
Northeastern
Hofstra

Outside Contenders
Elon
UNCW
