SFA Basketball 2018-2019

Recommended Posts

Big boost for SFA today with John Comeaux making his return to the lineup. Still without Aaron Augustin (Mono), but having a true PG back in the lineup is a big boost for Bogues. Bogues btw is having himself a game against Alabama right now...

Bama wins 79-69. SFA cut it to three late, but Bama made some BIG plays down the stretch to seal a tough win...

Conference play kicks off Wednesday in Nac against Southeastern Louisiana.

Really awesome atmosphere at WRJ. Good exposure for SFA on national TV. Once they get their other key players back, the Jacks should be pretty salty. It was good to hear from the new football coach too.

Missing Holyfield probably cost us this game. Hard to consistently win against the Alabama type teams playing point guards, shooting guards and small forwards.  Yes, a couple of guys playing are listed as the same height as Holyfield(6’8”) but he plays a different type game. The freshman may develop into a good power forward by next year.

Losing Holyfield really hurts. We will have Augustin back at some point as well as Niemenin. Hopefully we dont lose Holyfield as a grad transfer to a P5 after the season. This team could be VERY special if he stays next year...

Sammy is 1-8 against DI competition this year, including a loss to a bad East Tennessee State team...I'll take our chances

I’m glad Southland limited schools to only 3? Or may have been 4 games below Div 1 level

Our coach putting 20 win seasons together scheduling to many of those

Big win against SLU last night. First half wasn’t pretty but the Jacks got it done late. 

Fun game. SLU is a bad matchup for us with their style. Good to get that win. A trip to Nicholls will be fun next week

Veal is playing on a torn meniscus. 18-19 games from now if we see them in Katy, his leg will be in bad shape. They rode him too hard last year and he just couldnt go anymore in the SLC Championship. Interested to see how they manage his injury. They arent the same without him. Greenwood is good, but Nicholas and Seriale held him quiet for the most part.

He should just have the surgery. 4-6 weeks and he is back

It has been torn for a while from what i understand. I agree he should have gotten the surgery during non-conference and he would be back. Losing to SFA pretty much assures they will not win the SLC, so get him healthy and rested for the tournament, because thats what matters most for all SLC teams.

SFA sacrificed non-conference by sitting Comeaux, Nieminen, Augustin, and Grujic. Rumor has it Comeaux had microfracture surgery during the summer, but isnt recovery 18 months?

I haven’t dealt with many of those.  Most HS athletes typically quit sports if recovery takes less than 1 year.  But recovery from micro Fracture surgery is typically several months of sitting on your rump non weight bearing meaning that it’s a lot harder to recover strength and cardio...

think of it like having a 10th grader set back to 7th grade strength and endurance

Saw where Alabama beat Kentucky by two today. Makes SFA look better in the grand scheme of things. 

Jay Bilas said a few good things about SFA during the game and gave Shannon Bogues a nice shout out

Bogues is a stud. Comeaux playing again frees him up to not have to be the primary ball handler all the time which makes him even more dangerous. In theory, he should have "better legs" towards the ends of games.

Well after those two conference losses this thread got quiet.
