A win, obviously. A win against Charleston would be one of those sneaky good ones on the overall resume. Rhode Island is the clear favorite, especially at home, but someone referred to Charleston as a “cupcake,” which is not at all accurate. The long lay-off might lead to a rough start, but a solid, pull away win would be ideal.
A comfortable, double-digit minutes’ game for a healthy EC, while making a couple of those moves to the basket that remind us why he’s a very good player.
A Fatts’ dunk for no other reason than they’re fun.
A solid shooting game from Jared Terrell. He’s shooting 6 for 24 (2-11 against PC, 4-13 against Alabama) in his last two games. We know who and what he is, so I’m not concerned, but everything looks and feels better if he can tighten that up a bit.
The Rhody defense shutting down one of Charleston’s really good, experienced guards.
I'd like to see a solid 20-24 minutes from Cyril, showing that he's recovered from his hernia. We need a healthy, productive Cyril to make a decent post-season run.
