Blue/White recap

Steve made the trip up to Orono for the annual Blue/White game (while I was stuck at work). He filed this report late Sunday night:

First impressions
Overall team ball handling and athleticism looks to be improved. ... Jerry Boswell has a nice shot and an "Eddie House" quick release. ... Terrance Mitchell looks solid. ... Mike Allison runs the floor well and is a better athlete than expected. ... Enjoyed the segment of the game where guards Ryan Martin and Andrew Rogers were going at each other. ... Gerald McLemore looks ready to ascend the stairway to stardom. ... Travon Wilcher started slowly, but came on strong throughout the scrimmage. ... Chetinov is improved, Barnies added some muscle. ... McNally and Bernal as expected. ... Didn't see much from Peay.

Final thought
Pleasantly surprised with team's energy and improved athleticism.

Only 18 days until the opener vs. Fordham.
