Monmouth at Charlotte

Game info


7:00pm ET

Charlotte -5.5

Yes, it’s that time again to decide if you want to do or look for options elsewhere… For the record, both games this week are on, and 2 more in December before Christmas. If you want to go the route, I recommend a monthly subscribption for this month and next month, just don’t forget to cancel it before Santa comes to town.

What I’ll be watching

all season long


Last year Charlotte was one of the slowest tempo teams in the nation. With the makeup of our team, I’d love to see the pace picked up a bit to take advantage of a guy like Jahmir Young.

Adjusted Tempo in the Sanchez era


Offensive Rebounds

Charlotte’s always going to be a defensive-first team with Sanchez at the helm, that’s a given. Due to the desire to get back on defense, offensive rebounding suffers.

Worth noting: If I’m not mistaken Charlotte secured almost 1/3 of their misses vs Georgia in their exhibition, so perhaps this is an area where Charlotte will be more assertive this season. This is an area where Holy Cross transfer Austin Butler can shine with his non-stop motor.


When you play at such a deliberate pace, the impact of turnovers is amplified, so hopefully this an area that will trend in our favor this year with such a talented group of guards.

Worth noting: I’m not sure the amount of possessions in the scrimmage, but Charlotte had single-digit turnovers, a great sign.
