You have just 68 words to explain why you have picked a team to finish third in a power conference and you spend 14 of them on one player's sexual orientation?

SI covers sports, right? What a bad "preview". Most of us could write three sentances a piece on the A-10 teams. For one of only 9 college basketball conference previews they're writing before the season I was expecting a little more depth. Interesting to include projected freshman numbers.

But I guess they won't be hiring me since I somehow spelled sentences wrong.

Relax the previwew was fine. The Gordon stuff is totally legitimate.

I'd bet the under on SI's projected scoring for both Griffin and Cimino. I'd bet Larsen scores more per game than they predict. And they don't even include our fifth starter?

And I'll take the over on Yuta's scoring.

Gordon is a good story for a feature or sidebar, but his being openly gay in no way explains to readers why UMassholes are picked third, so leave it out of the small preview.

I saw a video of Yuta. I agree about his scoring abilities. He seems to really attack the basket, as soon as he has control over the ball. If he can rebound effectively, too, we're going to see some nice offensive moves between him and Larsen. I also think they'are low-balling Kethan and Joe, too.
Finally, VCU and Havoc look and sound more ferocious than they are. The black unis help.
ML figured them out once last year, and I am sure he can do it again. They do make for a nice rivalry.

Looks like they have that Duquesne player tagged for 39 ppg.
