What’s A Ute?

We’ve got a ton to get to at the Underdog HQ today. I’m paying the price of galvanting around Parsippany, NJ yesterday. Stay tuned.

One of things that stood out to me was that a lot of young guys are making waves this season. Then, I read the weekly summary provided by the conference, and validation was right in front of me in black-and-white. (Side note: I’ve worked with many media guys from different conferences. The CAAs Rob Washburn is at the top of the good list.)

Interesting nuggets:

There are only three seniors among the league’s top 15 in scoring. Three of the league’s top five scorers are sophomores: Chuckie Jenkins (23.6 ppg), Chad Tomko (19.3 ppg) and Fonzie Dawson (19.2 ppg). Among the top 15 in points, there are six juniors, five sophomores, three seniors and one freshman.

Jenkins is second in the CAA in scoring (12th nationally), but here’s the fun part. His low game (19 points) is still higher than any other Hofstra player’s high game (Tony Dennison with 18 points).

William& Mary set a school and CAA record with 46 three-point attempts in a double-overtime loss at Liberty last Saturday.  David Schneider also broke school and CAA marks for treys attempted by a player as he launched 23 threes against the Flames. For the season, Schneider leads the league with 3.9 three-pointers made per game

YouDee’s Marc Egerson had a pair of double-doubles with team-highs of 20 points and 14 rebounds at Seton Hall and 11points and 10 boards against UVM. Egerson leads the CAA in rebounding (11.7 rpg), and has five double-doubles in his first six games.
