Thoughts on the 2019-2020 basketball team:
* lost 2 starters to graduation (Zeigler and Kilbane) and will need to replace Davin's scoring/assists and Rory's toughness in the paint.
* lost 2 to transferring (Busbee and Barba) and need to replace their scoring.
* Seniors EJ Buckner and Dashun Cobb must step up and become the team leaders.
* Charles Abstan and London Maiden must become forces in the middle.
* Younger players (Detric Hurst, Sam Brown, and Jyles Brandon) must start the maturation process.
* Moving to DI is a disadvantage this year
Overall losing 5 out of your top 7 from last year will hurt in the short term but by the end of the year, once the find their identity, I can see this team begin to gel.

Where did Busbee transfer to?

Is there a reason for the transfers at Benny ? The team plays in a elite conference and plays a tough out of conference schedule - so why leave.

It’s hard to become a state championship caliber team when kids keep leaving. The team we could have put on the court this season could have been really good.
Andrews Osbourne / SPIRE do not help either.

Any insight on the varsity team will be much appreciated. Are the two freshman studs playing varsity ? Any transfers ( coming in )? Who is the player Bugg?

I am excited to see this team play. To me Cobb & Buckner could be one of the best back courts in the area! Both have natural PG abilities, Cobb great ability to drive & finish, Buckner ability to drive, finish, and hit from outside. Word is 6'8" Maiden has been a beast on the inside during scrimmages. The Hurst player is a sturdy, smart, tough player that was a standout as a Frosh on JV last year. The final player to watch is Charles Abstian-long, fast, solid defender, that has developed an offensive game.

Interesting next game, Fairview had a great season LY and is looking to step up their schedule; played CCC recently with Benny up next. Nonetheless this Bengal team is one to keep an eye on as this season progresses.

Benny takes a half off and pays the price against a good Fairview side. A young VASJ side is up next.

Frustrating game to watch against Fairview Park. Once again , Bene has no shooters. And the depth of this team is a big concern.

Is the VASJ vs. Benedictine game at VASJ tonight? This was an awfully contentious match up last year as several altercations over the once patched uniforms sparked a few shouting and shoving matches. Hopefully this game goes off without an incident and some good basketball is had by everyone. I saw VASJ fall to Gilmour the other night in a game that they were seemingly outplayed. Hopefully the home crowd, the introduction video, and the Thursday night game will have VASJ more prepared tonight. Should be a good one.

Typical young team, you never know what you are going to get game to game. I could see them being on the wrong side of many more blowouts as well as an upset of someone that should beat Benny.
