Quotes from Dave Paulsen at A-10 Media Day

paulsen-media-day

Today was the Atlantic 10 men’s basketball media day and George Mason was picked to finish 12th in the conference standings. Paulsen spoke about every player and reaffirmed that we’d see a lot of four-guard lineups this season. Here’s a breakdown of what was said today:

    Can’t wait for the season to start. Go Patriots !!!

  • Petey

    The four guard lineup with Jenkins/Temara at the 5 makes sense to me, best use of the talent we have and maximizes our best players on the court. Hopefully we can still rebound at a high level.

    “Paulsen: I think we have quality depth now. They are not seasoned, not veterans but we have more people who can give us a chance to win.”

    This is the biggest difference from last season, we aren’t just throwing freshman into the fire and hoping they can succeed. We have some quality depth and I think that will be the difference in close games.

    • TonyD

      Just having some solid options on the bench will be such a difference this season, especially if guys like Kier and Newman can step in and knock down some three’s

  • masonfan014

    Hearing that Boyd is ‘a better shooter than advertised’ is music to my ears. Could see him being our third leading scorer this season.

  • Contee&Estesfan

    Paulsen seems to have us on the right track. He may turn out to be our most successful coach yet. Not guaranteeing another final 4, but rather consistently keeping us in the NCAA mix.

  • Contee&Estesfan

    Edwards, Paulsen, Green, new practice facility, corporate sponsor for the Patriot Center…things seem to be on an upswing. Even president Cabrera seems to have brought new energy to the school…including athletics (saw him sitting behind homeplate during the Nats last homestand).
    Love the new energy our leaders are bringing!!
