They were picked 10th and no longer have Veal Greenwood or their coach from last season.

We are favored by only -4.5 ! Sela was a senior laden team last year, their “stars” are gone (von Julien their leading returning scorer average 6.5pts), they’re picked 10th in their conference and their coach left last year. Honestly I think this is a slam dunk for us to win by more 5+. Coach hunter has a lot to prove and our transfers outside Lawson werent highly regarded.

The sports books haven’t paid attention (like this year In football) and will take awhile to correct.

Interesting Lagniappe from Guerry Smith:

The Lions’ leading returning scorer, senior point guard Von Julien (6.2 points, 4.1 assists), spent his first two years at Tulane and started 16 times as a freshman under former coach Ed Conroy. … Conroy’s son, Riley, is the new recruiting coordinator for Southeastern. He played in 21 games as a walk-on at Tulane for his father and Dunleavy but never scored.

Riley hit the first shot he ever took vs Loyola his freshman year. It was for 3pts. I’ll always remember that one because his mom was sitting next to us in the stands. Too bad it doesn’t show up since it was an exhibition game.

Guerry failed to mention that SELA’s Maxwell Starwood also has a Tulane connection.

I think we crush Sela by 10+. We aren’t world beaters, but I see hunter getting the most out of talent and we have far more talent then Sela. I don’t see us beating many AAC teams but 5 points here is worth taking to the bank.

I only got to see the last minute of the 1st half. But it was enough for me to think this season is going to be a whole lot more fun than the last two! Hunter is fun to watch, and his press conferences will be a whole lot more amusing than we've seen, perhaps since I've been a Tulane fan!

Looking forward to the second half.

I got a chance to catch a couple minutes of Andrew Allegretta doing the radio broadcast. Maybe its just that I'm more used to hearing many different people doing radio on basketball, but he's definitely better at bball than football. He just seems more comfortable there.

Also saw the last 5 minutes of the first half and I agree with DfromCT, this will be more fun than last year. With Walker, Lawson and Thompson, there's no way we don't win at least a few conf games.

Couldn’t find a Sports book to get my wager in, furious as I knew this would be a blow out.

Better conference, better coach, better talent and more to prove. (Which hilariously is there theme/branding for the season).

So far not impressed by Lawson

Freshman Days playing a bit. It’s clear we have 4 real players:
Thompson
Lawson
Embo
Walker

That’s it. The good news is coach hunter only plays 8 man rotations and will get the most of our guys and will coach the rest up. We’ll win a few games in the aac by playing hard and our competition looking past us/having bad games.

Ron Hunter Said He Loved the students showing up and being loud. Said it was rowdy (I didn’t make it until halftime because of commitments). Would love someone to tell me about the first half.

He also laughed last time he came here he beat Tulane and no one was in the stadium. Said tonight was electric. Walker was great but can’t be too nice to him yet. Walker hasn’t played in two years, so showing rust. Stating he needed his team to figure out how to handle success. Team hasn’t won in forever, so purposely didn’t call a timeout when they were up 20. Followed up by saying Tulane needs to go up 30, because our leads aren’t safe.

Ps allegreta sounds much better on basketball, but is Super Awkward with student athletes.

I was impressed with Walker and Hightower. Coach Hunter did an incredible job turning over the roster in such a short amount of time. There’s plenty of room for improvement, but you can see vast improvement in this team vs what Tulane basketball has been for the past two decades.

Glad we started the winning streak! Obviously we are much more athletic. Walker shot much better than expected and it was much needed tonight. We also are much more intense. Of course we have a lot to get better at which is to be expected when you have put together almost an entire new team with a new staff. It will be fun to watch us progress.

Seems like several missed the first half. Probably you should be glad you did. This is a really bad SELA team. They have no size and can't shoot. We shot poorly too and they took the early lead. Walker started hitting some shots but Walker was the only one hitting anything for us. He had at least our first 11 points. SELA kept pace. Finally late in the half we started forcing some turnovers and ended with the 12 point lead.

Good win and the crowd was a loud 2100 strong/ Dunleavy always said Walker was the most talented player in his stable. Seems that Starwood was an overrated recruit for TU seeing how his coach only let him see the floor for sparce minutes.

Early season offense is usually ugly but happy to see the defense intensity and cohesion. Also thrilled by the pumped up student section - this current student body is loaded with hoops fans.

Great to hear the students showed up. Can't wait until I can see a game on TV especially a home game. We got ourselves a coach!
