840 am Dayton, Ohio

Monmouth shoots around at noon today at the Dayton Arena followed by a pep rally at the team hotel, Holiday Inn South, replete with pep band and cheerleaders at 430 p.m. Be interesting to talk to anyone who came out here on the fan bus that left Monmouth at 4am. Will they be awake?

Hampton looked very athletic from what I saw of them Monday. Then again, almost every team looks more athletic and usually is (outside of Princeton) than Monmouth, so that's not surprising.

Dave Calloway told me he compared Monmouth to FDU but, maybe, not quite as talented. Hampton finished sixth in the MEAC before winning four in a row in their tournament.

MEAC is ranked 30th of 31 conferences by collegerpi.com, the NEC 26th. I've gotten the feeling from the get go MU players are confident about this game, especially since they beat Hampton in the Paradise Jam in 2003, but they can't afford to be over confident.


Talk to you after the shoot around.
