UTSA Loses to DII St. Edward’s

Reminder that UTSA finished 5th in conference last year and was predicted to finish 5th this year by the coaches.

Why wasn't Jackson playing?
And without him, they should still be able to beat a DII...  Did the loss of Lyle hurt that bad?   

Serious issues in San Antonio.  It's not like they just coasted at the end & blew a late lead.  They were losing pretty much for the entirety of the game.

Star is still recovering from knee surgery. I wouldn't put too much stock in the loss.

Do you think we would lose to a DII school (as long as Benford isn't coaching) if our All-Conference guy, Smart, is out?

If I were UTSA, I'd put a LOT of stock in the loss.

We beat Angelo State 89-55 and I expect us to easily defeat Humboldt State Friday night -- all without Smart.

Pretty sure we just beat a DII without smart by 40 or so.....

UTSA making excuses sounds a lot like us 6 years ago when we got be by Bama st.

Exactly. It is obviously too early to say they are for sure not going to be a contender in CUSA, but this is a big red flag. Definite red flag on their depth.

Who cares what UTSA does until we play them.  

People who like to monitor the conference.

Not worth worrying about.

Don’t think there’s any worrying going on here.

Precisely.

They should definitely be worried, as a team with preseason aspirations of the NCAA tourney.  

Maybe I’m jaded because I’ve seen it before when our same type of team (with a NBA draft pick) dropped the game to Alabama Huntsville early in 2012... Panic button was firmly pressed & we finished the season with 20 losses.

I think it shows what kind of team they have without their star player.

In our case, I think it showed our depth if Gibson was starting in the place of Smart.

Would we have lost to Angelo if Gibson or Woolridge were also out in addition to Smart?  I don't think we would.
  
If losing just 1 guy forces you to drop a game at home to St. Edwards, depth is an issue, but not the issue. 
The depth (all the way down to the end of the bench) of a "contending" team should have no issues beating a DII squad.

And CBS Sports had them ranked ahead of us and #5 in the state.  See how those preseason rankings work.
