Daily Dribbles- 11/7/13

--Jay Canty from Appalachian State was suspended for the first nine games, making him the third player this week to make this article for being out. The third player that received votes in the Scanning the SoCon Awards Edition that will be out the first game. To go along with Jack Isenbarger from Elon and Trey Sumler from Western Carolina, we are three fifths of the way to a really nice starting five that won't be playing in the first game. This certainly does not help Jason Capel in his quest to keep his head coaching position for the Appalachian State Mountaineers, but he will still be around for the entire SoCon schedule (unless the suspension lasts longer than nine games), so this is not a major blow to their chance to get to the NCAA Tournament.

--Here's the top ten players in the SoCon according to Mid Major Madness. It's been out for a while. It's not a perfect list (especially in the rankings), but this is not really a bad list of the ten best players in the SoCon, if you ignore the number next to their name.

--Anyone think Wofford could upset Georgia? I think it wouldn't be a total shocker if they did. The Bulldogs are not a great SEC team, and Wofford returns five starters. They are one of the top defensive teams in the SoCon, and could provide a challenge to Georgia's offense, who is trying to rebuild. Can Wofford score? It's the question that will plague the Terriers all year long.

  1. It's academic. He should be back after 1st semester ends (unless his grades are still bad).
