    I saw that on Twitter about French...I had him tabbed as a potential surprise player this year...Unfort injuries happen... Anyone heading to tonight or tomorrow's games? I think the West Chester game could be a good one...

    West Chester had a fantastic class and a lot return. They will have the manpower to play with WLU. The cohesiveness may be another story.

    I don't see a blowout but likely a competitive game. They will be a team that gets better as it goes. They brought in several transfers used to being 'the man'. It will be interesting to see how they mesh.

    Damien Blair is an exceptional, no-nonsense coach. They have shooters and added some dynamite bigs.

    Ryan Skorvanko's debut is pretty anticipated. He's a player.

    This would be a great game to see live. They are a phenomenonal rebounding team.

    This is certainly the game of the weekend.

    I went to both games. Dennis is unguardable and a great disruptor on defense.
    Monterosa is incredible. Rejects shots slashes for dunks hits 3s. Total package with d1 strength. He was practicing with both football and ball. Will play wr at 1 pm and start at 7 pm game. There is no rust.
    Wlu defines the word synergy where team is greater than sum of individual players. Zac k moves better less fouls hit a good looking 3. Meininger is Hester like rebounder. Zac g great 3s inside game and Keene Cockburn rejector along with Monterosa. Brady soaring above taller players. There is very little difference in production among 10 players. Clay is really good. Smart does not make mistakes and makes shots after contact. Griffin is good too. Practice must be a shootout! Their defense is like a swarm of killer bees they just don't stop coming at you. Notre dame beat west Chester 96-87 with good 3 pt shooting and playing fast. I like 10 and #12 for west Chester. They could be better later in the year. But the athletes at wlu are at a different level. Wlu has quick quick hands.
    Smith has a beautiful 3 shot and was making incredible shots on drives after contact. He was scoring at will.

    I was surprised about Bolon. But there are simply not enough minutes to go around. A rs year might clear out the log jam with hoehn graduating. What is amazing is how seamlessly people move between point guard and shooting guard. Brady at pt guard with Dennis at shooting guard. Hoehn at pt guard
    etc.

    I think you'll get a better idea tomorrow night when the Toppers face West Chester.

    I went to the game tonight and let me first say that I know Cheyney is in a difficult situation but WLib made them look like a mid D3 squad. Dennis is a D1 guard that can go off for 25 plus a night if called upon, Hoehn can go for 30 on any night, Zac is going to cause mismatch problems all night for the opposing teams big man as long as he stays out of foul trouble. Clay Guillozet is better than advertised, Brady Arnold got better. My last observation is that this kid from Marist (Griffin), is waaaay better than I thought, this kid looks the part of a not so great D1 player coming down to a great D2 program and fits in perfect. Sorry West Chester and the possibly of West Liberty getting a test that we want to see, this just ain't going to happen....I would take a West Lib line of -25 against WC tomorrow right now and feel confident.

    Griffin reminds me of a Lamberti Indy mix player that can dunk, maybe it's just the Aussie thing with Indy but he's that type of player I was impressed with him didn't expect him to be that good. Smith looked a tad slow maybe just from injury but shot well. I tell you what we might lack size but I haven't seen a WL team hustle and play defense this well in the 3 years I've been here. Monteroso was a nice surprise too. Will be interesting to see if they can play this hard every game and not get too worn out the hustle was insane

    Wasn't able to watch, but WL beat West Chester 117-91.

  19. Default Re: West Liberty Hilltopper Basketball

    Yup, as I predicted in my earlier post, a 25 point plus win by WestLib....Let me first start off by saying I was really impressed with West Chester and their ability to put up some offense tonight, they are much further ahead of last years team who wanted to play in the 60 or 70's. I think West Chester will be a major factor in the PSAC. Now with that being said, West Liberty has added something to the mix which might bold well when they play the Wheeling Jesuit's and Fairmount State's of the world... "Athleticism". Monteroso is better than I thought, Guillozet is savy and could be West Lib's next 2,000 point scorer, and Meininger has come out of nowhere and looked like he could be the third scorer that WL needed. Earlier observation is that last years team is betting at shooting (Bonifant ofcourse), but this team is more athletic and plays harder. To add to that Cheyney gave Notre Dame all it can handle today and we know how that turned out yesterday for Cheyney against WLib. It's going to be a long season but if your going to beat West Liberty this year it's not going to be just because they missed their shots.

    Dan Monteroso is just silly! Starts a Friday night basketball game and scores 12 points in limited minutes (15)...Turns around and starts for the football team on Saturday at noon and leads the team with 8 receptions for 145 yards (and 2 TDs)...Then four hours later starts for the basketball team again and plays 23 minutes while scoring 16 points! I bet "Dynamite" Dan slept soundly last night! Anyone see the wrestling team results from yesterday? Wouldn't surprise me to see his name in the winners column at 195!

    If this is what passes for "shaking off the rust" for him, future opponents should take note!
