Some would say that starting the conference schedule early is like skipping the December holidays and going straight to the January post-holiday depression. Ridiculous, I say! Meaningful basketball should know no season.
The Atlantic Sun slate got underway last night (welcome, Matt Doherty, and North Florida too!
), but tonight it achieves "full swing." And there's already a game with implications - SoCon refugee ETSU, a victim of its own budgetary constraints, kicks things off at home with cross-staters Belmont. Both teams figure to get high seeds when the tourney comes around (held in Johnson City, incidentally), and both are all about the guard play - look for a three-pointer duel between Buc bomber Tim Smith
(21.7 PPG in 3 games) and recent A-Sun Player of the Week
