Guard the line

That’s got to be USI’s slogan on Saturday when it hosts Cedarville University, a team that is shooting 39.3 percent from behind the 3-point arc. My preview of that game is here

As for the rest of the season, it really gets going on Thursday with the first GLVC game, at home against Missouri-St. Louis. From then on, the Eagles play at least twice a week. And Rodney Watson loves it.

“No more breaks,” he said. “And that’s a very good thing.”

The start-and-stop nature of the season so far hasn’t provided much continuity. But when that changes, USI won’t have much time to fix any problems, either. Preparation will be jammed into a couple of days — and just one day between Thursday and Saturday games. There’s still coaching, but the players will have to rely on themselves more often. Any adjustments will have to be made on the run. This is when USI will find out just how good it is. Or not.
