Basketball, however, is one sport where you can have a seamless influx of new guys from one year to the next (see, e.g. Kentucky). Unlike football which is so scheme-dependent, even at the high school level, basketball players can have an impact wherever they go. I think I'm irrationally excited for the season to start because of how bad football has been. And I dont think that I'm alone. Lets go Basketball!!
UH Men's Basketball Set to Tip Off Season
There are three games in the "Rainbow Classic". The aforementioned opener against Tennessee State on Friday, at 6:30, against Western Michigan on Saturday at 7:30 PM (likely after 7:30 pending completion of the prior game) and then at midnight on Tuesday against New Mexico State. All three are must-attend, at the very least to get a feel for how the team will fare the rest of the year (particularly the game against New Mexico State.) Much of my impressions were developed in summer league (and the exhibitions) because so many of the guys that will play big minutes this year are new (Nevels, Quincy Smith, Sham, Aaron Valdes etc.) and are relatively unknown.
