Default 2001-2002 Season Preview

2001-2002 Season Preview

Here is the preview for the 2001 season!

Athletic Director Goal

Our AD's goal is the avoid last place in the conference. This is basically the smallest goal that could be set forward and I hope we are able to reach it again after succeeding last year. This year will have its ups and downs with 6 freshmen playing meaningful minutes but I believe we will be a better team than next year. We also saw our RPI rise from 0 to 1 this offseason!

Schedule

We improved our strength of schedule but not by much. We still went after the low prestige teams but didn't pick only the bottom of the barrel like last year. It still is going to be a very weak schedule but gives us a chance to at least have a RPI that isn't bottom 3 in the nation.

Here is our starting lineup for the 2001-2002 season!

C: Joe Webb (FR)
PF: Preston Yap (FR)
SF: Dudley O'Neil (FR)
SG: Frank Landa (FR)
PG: Romeo Rinehart (SR*)

6th - PG Jerald Zimmerman (FR)
7th - PG Rickie Fullerton (SR*)
8th - PF Chris Vasques (JR*)
9th - SG Mark Bautista (SO)
10th - SF Eugenio Albano (FR)
11th - C Amos Boone (SO*)
12th - C Emil Haptonstall (SR*)

As you can see we have 4 freshmen in the starting lineup! There is a decent chance we are the only team in the country this year that will be doing that. Romeo Rinehart rounds out the starters but expect to see a lot of Zimmerman and Fullerton as well. Rinehart is not all that great as a distributor so he may be supplanted in the lineup by Rickie Fullerton at some point to help guys get more open looks. Last year Rinehart averaged 1 assist per game in 29 minutes while Fullerton averaged 1.2 per game in 19 minutes. I anticipate that in most of our games 10-11 of these guys will get in at some point. Webb has 0 stamina so Vasques will be in the game a lot.

North Dakota (0-0) vs. Abilene Christian (0-0)

Final Score: North Dakota - 65, Abilene Christian - 52. It only took 37 seconds for us to have an all freshmen lineup on the court for the first time this season! Romeo Rinehart picked up two quick fouls and was sent to the bench early. We had assists on each of our first 3 made shots of the game which was so nice to see. The downside was that we didn't record our 4th assist until 2 minutes into the second half and finished the game with only 5. Rebounding is still a problem as we allowed 11 offensive boards. We only forced 4 turnovers and shot 5-29 from 3. Like I said, there will be growing pains but this team already looks so much better than last year. We won't shoot 17% from 3 every game. Frank Landa had 8 points and 11 rebounds in his debut and Preston Yap had 8 points and 10 rebounds. We had 13 offensive boards which we only did one time all of last season. Preston Yap had 7 of those which is the most in a game ever for us. Landa's 11 rebounds was also the most in a game in program history. Dudley O'Neil had 18 points to go with 4 rebounds and 2 assists. Him and Landa went a combined 5-19 from deep and the rest of the team went 0-10. This was the most team rebounds we had in a game in program history with 41. Funny thing is the 2nd most was to this same North Dakota team last season. Joe Webb fouled out in his debut in 15 minutes but had 2 points and 3 rebounds. Jerald Zimmerman had 2 points and 3 rebounds and Eugenio Albano had 5 points. We may have lost but this game has me very excited!

November 20, 2001

North Carolina Central (0-0) vs. Abilene Christian (0-1)

Final Score: North Carolina Central - 78, Abilene Christian - 74. Back to back turnovers inside 2 minutes did us in here as we had 14 turnovers to their 10. We upped our assist total to 10 though and despite losing this was still an encouraging game. Frank Landa led the charge with 28 points, a new school high! He also added on 7 rebounds and an assist. Dudley O'Neil fouled out but had 12 points in his 17 minutes. Joe Webb played 27 minutes and had 9 points and 7 rebounds. The story of this game was rebounding as we allowed NC Central to bring down 20 offensive rebounds. These are things that happen with young teams. I would have loved to see us win this one and the fans will be disappointed but it appears we have some very promising freshmen. We may have gotten better this year but so did all of the other bottom tier teams. This was the most points we have scored in program history.

November 23, 2001

Dartmouth (0-2) vs. Abilene Christian (0-2)

Final Score: Dartmouth - 62, Abilene Christian - 69. We let a 15 point lead slip away but were able to regain the lead and finish off the game. We were a putrid 20-32 from the free throw line which will have to improve but we did have 14 assists which tied for most in team history. Romeo Rinehart had 5 assists which is the most by a player in one game in school history. Frank Landa had 21 points and 9 rebounds Preston Yap had 12 points with 7 boards. Joe Webb had 6 points and 9 rebounds. Webb has not been doing much scoring but has made a serious impact on the glass. We allowed only 6 offensive rebounds this game while having 8 of our own.

November 27, 2001

Sacramento State (0-1) vs. Abilene Christian (1-2)

Final Score: Sacramento State - 76, Abilene Christian - 85. Frank Landa had a gem of a game with 27 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists. Romeo Rinehart had a nice game as well with 17 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists. Preston Yap added 11 points and Dudley O'Neil had 10 points.

Recruiting News

We have amazing news to share! PG Miguel Cabrera from Weatherford, Texas has accepted our scholarship offer. Cabrera is a 2 star recruit and #672 overall in the country. We believe we have found a real gem here though as Cabrera is already a refined shooter as he can score from the inside, mid-range, and from deep. He is an adept ball handler with the potential to rack up a ton of assists. His defense is the only area where he is lacking but even then he is solid and not a complete liability. We think this kid can be special and I am so incredibly excited to bring him in. We beat out UT-San Antonio in signing him.

We also had a scholarship declined by PF Michale Barker who has decided to attend Oral Roberts.

December 2, 2001

Abilene Christian (2-2) vs. Prairie View A&M (1-2)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 57, Prairie View A&M - 72. Prairie View A&M didn't miss their first shot until the 12:04 mark in the first half. We were incredibly lucky to only be down 7 at that point. This was one of those growing pain games. We had twice as many turnovers and we didn't have a single steal. I'm trying to wrap my head around how last season teams could barely score 40 when playing us and this year they are reaching 70+ with ease. They shot 50% from 3 so losing by 15 was actually surprising. Frank Landa had 17 points and 4 rebounds to lead the team. Jerald Zimmerman had a great game off the bench with 9 points and 3 rebounds.

December 5, 2001

Abilene Christian (2-3) vs. Bryant (1-5)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 65, Bryant - 35. We went on a 14-0 run to start the game and we never looked back. We held Bryant to 24% from the field while shooting 50% ourselves. We shot 9 of 17 from 3 which shows how potent our offense can be. We did have 16 turnovers in this one though so there is still room for improvement. Frank Landa is showing his potential with 21 points (6 of 6 from 3) and 6 rebounds. He's averaging over 20 points per game as a freshman. I know the quality of our opponents has not been good but that is still very big. He's averaging 55% from the field and from 3 and the only downside right now to his shooting is that he is 59% from the free throw line. His 20.3 PPG is currently 30th in the nation and 3rd among all freshmen. Romeo Rinehart had 12 points and 2 rebounds and has been a pleasant surprise this season as he has outperformed expectations and has been our #3 scorer. Preston Yap had only 3 points but he added on 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Dudley O'Neil had 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 4 assists. The bench even performed well as Jerald Zimmerman had 6 points and 6 rebounds and Chris Vasques had 5 point and 6 rebounds.

December 9, 2001

Abilene Christian (3-3) vs. SIU-Edwardsvile (1-4)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 71, SIU-Edwardsville - 62. Frank Landa had 22 points and 3 rebounds and Dudley O'Neil had 19 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists. Man I am excited about these guys! Landa and O'Neil may be the two "star" freshmen in terms of points but I don't want anybody to forget about Webb or Yap. They may not be the focal point of the offense but they are young big men holding their own. Yap had 9 points and 9 rebounds and Webb had 8 points and 3 rebounds. Jerald Zimmerman again was a sparkplug off the bench with 4 points, 3 rebounds, and 3 assists. We allowed SIU to shoot 52% from the field which is going to need to improve. We also went 14-21 from the free throw line and fortunately that did not cost us. Chris Vasques was a spark off the bench as well with 5 points and 5 rebounds.

December 15, 2001

Abilene Christian (4-3) vs. Northern Kentucky (2-4)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 52, Northern Kentucky - 55. Northern Kentucky shot 57% from the field as our defense has continued to be abysmal. The only reason this game was close was that they went 11-25 from the line. We committed 16 turnovers but they had 14 of their own. Frank Landa went 3 for 16 from the field and had 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 2 assists. Dudley O'Neil tried to pick up the slack with 17 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists. Chris Vasques was great off the bench with 9 points and 5 rebounds.

Team News

Rickie Fullerton left the game against Northern Kentucky with a concussion and will out for about 32 days.

December 21, 2001

Abilene Christian (4-4) vs. Army (0-8)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 64, Army - 73. This was a rough one to lose and was one of those growing pain type of games. Army shot 58.5% from the field and we shot 40.8%. Foul trouble caused us to get a lot of minutes from the bench and Chris Vasques came up big with 8 points. Romeo Rinehart tried to carry the team with 16 points and 4 assists while Joe Webb had 8 points, 6 rebounds, and 2 assists. While we may not be much better right now than we were last year this team is so much more exciting to watch than the one last year.

December 25, 2001

Grand Canyon (1-10) vs. Abilene Christian (4-5)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 62, Abilene Christian - 54. We were up 36-22 but then Grand Canyon went on a 31-12 run to take the lead as we couldn't buy a bucket or make a free throw. Their most efficient way of stopping us was by sending us to the line. This game was in the bag and it looked like Grand Canyon was about to roll over. Their run wasn't them playing insanely well but a product of us only making one field goal over a 15 minute span. Extreme growing pains in this one as we committed 18 second half fouls and had 15 turnovers. To be outscored 40-18 is just embarrassing and there will be a lot of windsprints after this one. Jerald Zimmerman had 12 points off the bench and Romero Rinehart had 13 points to go with 4 rebounds. We really need a bounceback win after this one.

December 29, 2001

Omaha (1-9) vs. Abilene Christian (4-6)

At halftime Omaha had 17 points and Frank Landa had 17 points. We had a 33-17 lead thanks to Landa's performance. The second half was the same as always though as we opened up a 17 point lead with under 10 minutes left but then let it become a 3 point game. We need to be able to close games and this one we only won because the clock ran out. Landa ended up with 28 points and 5 rebounds while Dudley O'Neil had 18 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 assists. Chris Vasques had 6 points and 5 rebounds off the bench and Joe Webb had 9 rebounds.

Team News

Erwin Burnside has been suspended for the 2nd half of the season due to academics. I also received a message that both him and Merlin Jarrell are unhappy with their lack of playing time. Obviously nothing will change now for Burnside but Jarrell will not be receiving any playtime.

Recruiting News

We have a new recruit! C Jerry Navarrette has committed to play for Abilene Christian next season. Navarrette is from Kingfisher, Oklahoma. Navarrette is 1 star recruit and the #1,151 recruit in the nation and chose us over Oral Roberts. Navarrette is a decent scorer but is an animal on the offensive glass. He is also a solid defender and a great passer. He isn't somebody the offense will ever run through but should be a capable player when he is on the floor.

Abilene Christian (5-6) vs. Southeastern Louisiana (4-6)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 76, Southeastern Louisiana - 60. Frank Landa had 32 points and 7 rebounds in a performance that saw him go 9 for 9 from deep. Jerald Zimmerman had 12 points off the bench.

January 5, 2002

Abilene Christian (6-6) vs. Stephen F. Austin (6-7)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 55, Abilene Christian - 64. Even though we lost this was probably the best game we have played all season. We held a lead throughout most of the game but got cold once we needed help from the bench. Dudley O'Neil had 22 points and Frank Landa had 15 points and 6 rebounds.

January 9, 2002

Abilene Christian (6-7) vs. Central Arkansas (2-12)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 64, Central Arkansas - 54. Dudley O'Neil had 16 points and 8 rebounds while Frank Landa had 15 points. Preston Yap had 9 points and 11 rebounds while Joe Webb fouled out with 4 points. Chris Vasques was huge off the bench with 10 points and 6 rebounds and Jerald Zimmerman also had 6 rebounds off the bench.

January 12, 2002

Lamar (8-4) vs. Abilene Christian (7-7)

Final Score: Lamar - 74, Abilene Christian -73. Lamar made 9 straight 3's to close the game and we went 9-16 from the line in the final two minutes as we blew a 12 point lead with 90 seconds left. You cannot make this stuff up. Every game we lose in a new way that is just so wild and impossibly unrealistic. We have now had 15+ point leads in all 8 of our losses this year. We went 26-38 from the free throw line which is unacceptable. Dudley O'Neil had 25 points and 7 rebounds and Preston Yap had 13 rebounds.

January 16, 2002

Central Arkansas (2-13) vs. Abilene Christian (7-8)

Final Score: Central Arkansas - 62, Abilene Christian - 44. We were just absolutely embarrassed AT HOME to a team we beat easily a week ago. Looks like the team has given up after the ridiculous loss to Lamar. Looks like the rest of this season will be a lot of losses now. This should have been a 20 point win.

January 19, 2002

Sam Houston State (8-8) vs. Abilene Christian (7-9)

Final Score: Sam Houston State - 87, Abilene Christian - 79. Frank Landa had 28 points but was a putrid 9-25 from the field. Joe Webb had 14 rebounds.

January 26, 2002

TAMU-Corpus Christi (5-11) vs. Abilene Christian (7-10)

Final Score: TAMU-Corpus Christi - 81, Abilene Christian - 64. The team has given up on the season and I don't blame them. 19 for Frank Landa. 11 points and 12 rebounds for Chris Vasques off the bench.

January 30, 2002

Abilene Christian (7-11) vs. Lamar (11-7)

February 2, 2002

Abilene Christian (7-12) vs. TAMU-Corpus Christi (7-11)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 73, TAMU-Corpus Christi - 65. Finally a win! Frank Landa had 17 points and Dudley O'Neil had 8 points and 8 rebounds. Preston Yap added 8 points and 11 rebounds and Chris Vasques had 11 points and 8 rebounds off the bench in only 18 minutes.

February 6, 2002

Abilene Christian (8-12) vs. Sam Houston State (10-10)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 52, Sam Houston State - 58. Frank Landa had 22 points and 5 rebounds but nobody else had more than 8 points. Both Joe Webb and Preston Yap had 8 rebounds.

February 9, 2002

Incarnate Word (6-14) vs. Abilene Christian (8-13)

Final Score: Incarnate Word - 46, Abilene Christian - 72. Frank Landa had 21 points and Dudley O'Neil had 15. Joe Webb grabbed 8 rebounds and Preston Yap had 12. Jerald Zimmerman had 11 points off the bench. This was the type of win we needed.

February 13, 2002

Nicholls (3-19) vs. Abilene Christian (9-13)

Final Score: Nicholls - 52, Abilene Christian - 49. We finished the first half by missing the front end of the one and one on 3 straight possessions. We played down to a truly awful Nicholls team and even fouled them on the buzzer beater but they made it anyways so it didn't matter. I sound like a broken record but this is embarrassing. I know I have sounded harsh in some of these writeups but it is because I have high standards for this team and just hate seeing them lose games they should win. This is one of those growing pain games.

February 16, 2002

Abilene Christian (9-14) vs. Houston Baptist (4-19)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 66, Houston Baptist - 53. Preston Yap had 12 points and 10 rebounds and Dudley O'Neil had 17 points. Frank Landa had 11 points and 5 assists. After this win we are 5-8 in conference play which is trending up from last season when we went 5-13. This was our 10th win and we only won 11 games last season.

February 20, 2002

Southeastern Louisiana (12-11) vs. Abilene Christian (10-14)

Final Score: Southeastern Louisiana - 56, Abilene Christian - 59. Dudley O'Neil had 20 points with 8 rebounds and Preston Yap had 17 points and 9 rebounds. Chris Vasques had 4 points and 10 rebounds off the bench. Frank Landa only had 4 points and took a backseat in this one. This win matched our total wins from last season and topped our conference wins from last season! I know I was very frustrated recently with these results but I'm proud of these freshmen. I need to remember that we have 6 freshmen playing meaningful minutes.

February 23, 2002

Abilene Christian (11-14) vs. McNeese (13-11)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 61, McNeese - 77. Dudley O'Neil had 14 points and Preston Yap had 11 points with 9 rebounds and 4 assists. Frank Landa got in foul trouble and was limited to 8 points. Jerald Zimmerman tried picking up the slack with 12 points in 26 minutes. An interesting thing to note is that right now we only have 4 players with a positive +/- on the season and that is our four freshmen starters. Romeo Rinehart and the bench are all negative. Bringing in this new wave of recruits should help us have more players who are able to help and not hemorrhage points when they go in the game. I didn't think these 4 freshmen would be so successful this early. Again it is worth noting our strength of schedule has been very weak but what they are doing is still impressive as you have to take into account that we are performing better than last season.

Stephen F. Austin (18-8) vs. Abilene Christian (11-15)

Final Score: Stephen F. Austin - 53, Abilene Christian - 54. This is the signature win we have been looking for! This is by far our biggest win in program history and the team has proven me very wrong. Since our 5 game losing streak when I claimed the team has given up we are 5-3. Dudley O'Neil led the way with 13 points and 10 rebounds to record the double-double. Jerald Zimmerman had 10 points off the bench and both Frank Landa and Romeo Rinehart had 8 points. The bench was huge for us in this one with 20 points.

New Orleans (13-14) vs. Abilene Christian (12-15)

Final Score: New Orleans - 66, Abilene Christian - 74. Frank Landa re-claimed his role as team MVP with 27 points and 6 rebounds and Preston Yap had a monster double-double with 13 points and 16 rebounds, the most in program history for a single game. Joe Webb added on 8 points and 7 rebounds in a huge win that gives us a chance to end the season with a .500 conference record. Even if we lose our last game of the season I did not expect us to pick up 8 conference wins this season and I am incredibly proud!

March 9, 2002

Abilene Christian (13-15) vs. Northwestern State (14-14)

Final Score: Abilene Christian - 62, Northwestern State - 61. Frank Landa had 22 points and 5 rebounds and Dudley O'Neil had 12 points. This win moves us to 9-9 in conference play but due to tiebreakers we will miss out on the conference tournament. Either way this is a great way to end the season and makes me very excited for next season. Joe Webb sprained his ankle in this game and will be out for 15 days but that doesn't mean much since our season has come to an end. This also should greatly help our end of season RPI. For most of this season and last we were hovering between the 348-351 range but there is a chance we end up significantly better in RPI than last season.

Here is the final standings for the Southland Conference. We just missed out on making the conference tournament but I am very proud of the team for going .500 in conference play.

Default Season Wrapup

Here is a quick wrapup for the 2001-2002 season!

The National Player of the Year was SR PG Cristobal Demars from Cal who averaged 17.5PPG, 8.1APG, and 3.4RPG. Freshman of the year was SG Stan Loveland from Memphis and Coach of the Year was Johnny Dawkins from Stanford.

For the Southland Conference the player of the year was Senior C Lanny McNeese. This doesn't surprise me one bit as McNeese was an absolute stud. He only averaged 8.8 PPG but he had 9.8 rebounds, 1.9 assists, and 1.4 blocks.

The freshman of the year in the Southland Conference is Frank Landa! Congratulations to Landa on a stellar season that saw him be named freshman of the year, on the all-freshman team (no surprise there) as well as being on the 2nd team All-Conference team! It really looks like the sky is the limit for Landa.

Other Southland news is that Preston Yap and Joe Webb were both named to the All-Freshman team. Neither of them were anywhere near as impressive as Landa but it is nice to see them both recognized.

Now for the surprise of the year. The Southland Coach of the Year is....yours truly! I have to say I am very surprised with the news and didn't think this would be something I would even be in contention for. I will happily accept it though and it has helped my "Hot Seat" rating with the AD change to "Cool". Hopefully we can build on this next year!

Here is the end of season Top 25 going into the NCAA Tournament.

Default March Madness!

2001-2002 March Madness



First up is the West Region! This Region had a couple first round upsets as a 31-3 New Mexico State team that was a 12 seed took down 5 seed BYU and 10 seed Minnesota took down 7 seed South Carolina. The second round saw Minnesota take out 2 seed Stanford as well as 6 seed Western Kentucky take out 3 seed Oklahoma State. Western Kentucky beat Minnesota in the Sweet 16 to set up a matchup with 1 seed Wisconsin who took down 4 seed Dayton. Wisconsin won that matchup to punch their ticket to the Final Four!



Next is the Midwest Region! This Region had our Southland representative Stephen F. Austin who lost to 3 seed Michigan State. The Southland is still looking for our first tournament win. 10 seed Creighton took down 7 seed UMass to round out the surprises in the first round. Creighton followed that up by beating 2 seed UCLA to advance to the Sweet 16 where they fell to 3 seed Michigan State. 4 seed Kansas took down 1 seed Xavier in the Sweet 16 and then handled Michigan State to advance to the Final Four!



The South Region saw a huge upset as 14 seed Boston University took down 3 seed Arizona in a 19 point win! Unfortunately BU could not keep it going and lost to 6 seed North Carolina in the Round of 32. 7 seed Villanova took down 2 seed Florida and then North Carolina to advance to the Elite 8. They matched up with 1 seed Louisville in a thrilled but were unable to win. Congratulations to the Cardinals on making the Final Four!



Finally we get to the East Region. 10 seed Illinois beat 7 seed Georgia and 11 seed Green Bay took down 6 seed Cal. Green Bay fell by 3 to 3 seed Gonzaga in the second round and Illinois fell to 2 seed Syracuse. 5 seed West Viriginia took down 1 seed Kentucky in the Sweet 16 to setup a matchup with Gonzaga. Gonzaga took full advantage of not having to play the 1 seed to be the last team in the Final Four.



In our first matchup Wisconsin took down Louisville by 17 in the battle of the 1 seeds. Our second game saw Kansas beat Gonzaga by 20 as neither game was close. The national championship did not disappoint as overall #1 seed Wisconsin beat 4 seed Kansas to claim the national championship. Big Cat would be going wild right now! Congrats to the Badgers!

Last we have the CIT!



Congrats to Southern Mississippi on winning the CIT! This was their first every appearance in the tournament. Lamar represented the Southland Conference in the CIT but lost in the first round as a 10 seed to Hawaii.

We vastly improved this year by going 14-15 overall and 9-9 in conference play. We could have made the conference tournament and secured an overall record of at least .500 but blew a double digit lead to Lamar with 90 seconds left. That one still leaves a bad taste in my mouth but the team was resilient late in the year. We won 5 of our final 6 games when the team could have rolled over. This year in minutes per game freshmen were #1, 2, 4, 5, 6, and 9 on that list. That shows how much we can improve moving forward. I expected us to be better than last season as far as ability but wasn't sure with a ton of freshmen that it would show in the win column. We got better but a lot of other teams got better too. This will be something to build off and given that we are only losing 1 player who played serious minutes for us (Rinehart) and are replacing him with what we view as a high-end recruit who is already more advanced, I think we can improve on this record next season. All 5 of our starters this season had a positive +/- but everyone on the bench had a negative one. That goes to show that the starters were good but the bench was very poor which will improve as we are able to recruit more players.

The metric that stands out to me the most in this is our points per shot taken. We are 36th in the nation in that stat which doesn't surprise me given how well we played and how easily we were able to score this year without a distributor. Our guys had to create their own shot a lot of the time, as evidenced by us being 295th in in assists. You will even notice that we were 231st in points per game. We were best in the conference in 3 point percentage which is an encouraging sign. A lot of our defensive stats are misleading as we played a horrendously weak schedule. It says more about the lack of quality in our opponents than about our own defense.

Here are out season stats:

Default 2002 Offseason

2002 Offseason

There was a little bit of conference movement this offseason with Western Kentucky leaving Conference USA for the AAC and East Carolina taking their place. Xavier and TCU swapped spots as well as Xavier joins the Big 12 and TCU joins the Big East.

We have decided to cut two walkons from the team in order to free up the spots for scholarship players. It was difficult but sophomores Jerald Zimmerman and Eugenio Albano will both be cut from the team. I will give them a quick appreciation post here.

SG Jerald Zimmerman played in 29 games for Abilene Christian as a freshman, all off the bench. He averaged 6.1 points, 2.2 rebounds, and 1.3 assists. He was a walkon from Brookshire, Texas who had career highs of 12 points, 6 rebounds, and 3 assists. Zimmerman helped us out a lot as a freshman but quite simply is not as good as John Acuff who is a walkon freshman this year.

 2001     High School: Rated * and #1407 overall by the FBCB scouting service.
 2001     Walked on at Abilene Christian
Eugenio Albano is a SF from Cado Mills, Texas who appeared in 29 games as a freshman and averaged 1.7 points, 0.5 rebounds, and 0.2 assists per game. His career highs were 8 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 assists. Albano played some minutes for us last season but just like Zimmerman has an incoming freshman who is of the same quality already with slightly higher potential. Right now these walkon cuts are difficult because these guys are better than our scholarship players that are juniors and seniors but we need the scholarship spots so badly and can't afford to burn two of them for a year.

Our biggest problem this year will be our lack of depth. The reason for this is that none of our juniors or seniors are any good and any time they are on the court it will hurt us. Mark Bautista is already unhappy and since he will not receive any play time this year there is a good chance he transfers out at year end. This year expect to see the same starting lineup just with Miguel Cabrera running point in place of Rinehart.

Here is our call list going into the season:

It appears that some players have taken note of our success and rise the past couple of seasons. Perhaps the Coach of the Year award helped or perhaps they saw the freshman of the year and 3 players on the All-Freshman team and realized they have a chance to contribute early. I'm looking forward to scouting and meeting these players and finding the right fights for our program! We have 4 scholarships available so

Default 2002-2003 Season Preview

2002-2003 Season Preview

This year I upped our schedule a bit. I didn't schedule the same low prestige teams but instead went for teams that are a bit better in the prestige department but had disappointing seasons. We scheduled two teams from Power-5 conferences and even get a crack at one of them at home. I figure we will probably have a couple OOC losses anyways and it looks better to lose to a good team than to lose to a team that ends up being very bad.

AD Goal

The goal again set forward by the Athletic Director is to avoid last place in the conference. We were able to up our prestige from 1 to 2 last season so we are hoping to again see that take a rise. I have high hopes for this team given our sophomore class but turning around this program is not going to be something that happens overnight. There is going to be a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that go into it.

Team News

Freshman walkon SF Cliff Dawson has been ruled academically ineligible for the first semester. This is a big blow as he was expected to give us some minutes at the 3. Our bench was already going to be a weak link for us but it looks like we will have to rely extra on the starters now. Remember to temper expectations this season. We may not be able to replicate last season's success but 9 of our 10 best players will be underclassmen.

Grand Canyon (0-0) vs. Abilene Christian (0-0)

Final Score: Grand Canyon - 73, Abilene Christian - 74. Frank Landa had 22 points and Dudley O'Neil had 16 points to go with 8 rebounds. This Grand Canyon team might not win 3 games this season as their talent pool is absolutely atrocious. Winning this game by single digits is absolutely unacceptable and tells me that we are not a good team. This should have been a blowout. Miguel Cabrera had 11 points and 5 rebounds in his debut and Michael Shaver had 8 points. Preston Yap had 5 points and 8 rebounds while Joe Webb had 6 points and 4 rebounds.

Abilene Christian (1-0) vs. Florida Atlantic (0-0)

Going to put this series on hold a bit while I learn more about this game. I simmed this game 20 times as a test. 10 times I did "sim day" and the other 10 actually watched out the game. We went 10-0 when I simmed through the game to the next day. We went 0-10 when I sat through the play by play. I went ahead and simmed the next game 10 times and the exact same thing happened, 5-0 and 0-5 for both. I love watching the play by play of the game but if I'm not able to do that because we lose (our first two seasons almost all of our wins came from me fast simming and all but 3 or 4 losses were from me watching the sim through). If anybody else has encountered this I would love to hear a fix but unfortunately every time I do a sim through of this game after about 3 seasons the game seems to break itself and becomes unplayable.
