Thursday's WAC hoops compendium

Apparently nothing happened in the wide world of WAC basketball in the last 24 hours so PTW is offering these questions:

* So how will the various head coaches of Denver, Seattle and the Texas schools prepare their virgin teams for The Spectrum Experience?

Thought Seattle had been there last season before but can't find that -- Denver was in Logan last November 30 and came away with a win.


* In the same vein, it will be fascinating to witness the other WAC squads dealing with Denver's "Princeton-style" offense. Defensive patience will be a virtue.


* As LA TECH's frontcourt gets bigger and more experienced and effective, does Coach Mike White shift to a different offensive/defensive style. PTW thinks not.

It will definitely be worth it to catch Denver and LA TECH matching up.


* Referring back to Denver, get introduced to Chase Udofia. At 6-foot-5, he averaged 15.6 points in conference play (57% shooting) grabbed 5.8 rebounds a contest while blocking 36 shots in 16 games. His numbers all improved in league action indicating a coming-on as the season played out. Udofia will be a junior in 2012-13.


Also watch for 6-foot-8 Jeromie Hill with Texas San Antonio. He looks to the the prime candidate to be the top scorer on the Roadrunner squad as he averaged 12.5 points (third on the squad) and a team-leading 6.4 boards a game as a sophomore. But what doesn't make sense is that he shot 41% on 86 trey attempts but just 60% on 89 foul line visits. It looks like he is still ascending.
