I would agree with your assesment of the team. Aldridge looked very uncomfortable in his first game, and was a completely different player against Franklin. During the second half of the game, it looked like the freshmen were starting to understand the defensive scheme. Last year it took the team several regular season games to commit to the defense. I will admit...... everytime Smeathers hits a shot....based on how he pronounces his last name I want to say "Excellent Smeathers.....Excellent!"
