That's the big question that I have right now. Down the road, it really looks likes UNCW is going to be a train going downhill. Keatts has already turned the program around with all the players that he has coming, but can they turn it around this year? That's the big question. And, it's a good one. The big hurdle will be the lack of shooters with this team-a real question mark. Barring injuries, this team should be able to play Keatts style of ball for the most part-they can put out an athletic team. The Hawks should be picked near the bottom in the CAA to start, but do they exceed expectations? My gut feeling is yes. If the Hawks stay away from injury, like a Freddie Jackson knee, they've got a real chance to surprise. They will be as fit as any team and they have some seniors and upperclassmen. Initially, they should/may take some lumps against top quality teams, but finishing at or above .500 in this CAA seems possible. This team could also be much better at the end when/if Talley and Pugh are more adjusted to the D1 game as true freshmen PGs. Ponder, Jackson, Spruill, Sherwood,Williams, and Yemi M. are veterans so they should be ready. Ogbodo and Gettys may have something to say about this as well in the post. We shall see, but I wouldn't be surprised if this team was at least competitive in the first year. The following year should be another step forward.
