Too early to start a 2018-19 Basketball thread?

I really like that, on a night when his shot wasn't going, Bane set a career-high for rebounds and created by driving to the hoop.

 

Also, Alok has a little bit of Vlad to his game.  Good, old-fashioned post play footwork with a little hook shot that'll be real nifty when he perfects it.

Couple articles on the game- one from Drew Davison at FWST and one from Jeremy Clark at 247:  What are the chances that both misspell the same word?  One had to have copy and pasted the other's quote.

“That’s a good team,” Dixon said of Bakersfield. “That’s an old team. That’s a tough team. That’s a well-caoched team, Bakersfield, and that’s a team you don’t want to play early, first game of the year with three returning college basketball players, but we did it.

“We got a win and we’re going to get better for it.”

"We made it interesting," Dixon said. "We held them to 36 percent. That’s a good team, that’s an old team, that’s a tough team, that’s a well-caoched team, Bakersfield, and that’s a team you don’t want to play early, first game of the year with three returning college basketball players, but we did it, we got a win and we’re going to get better for it."

I give CSU-B credit - they were scrappy as hell. You can definitely tell they were seasoned and well-coached. Overall, I'd say it's great we came out with a win given how many freshmen we're playing (8 out of 15 on the roster are either true freshmen or RS freshmen).

 

We should see a ton of improvement by the time we reach conference play, and we FINALLY have size. This is by far the biggest TCU team I've ever seen, but we're still missing a good 2 guard, and that would really help our chances of making a solid run.
