On this episode of the Schmidt Talking Podcast, Alec and Kyle discuss the tough start to the season for the Bonnies. Off to a 2-5 start, 1-5 before this episode was recorded, the Bonnies were missing one of their best freshmen, and two of their three seniors for their non-conference tournament, the Cayman Islands Classic.
The Cayman Islands Classic is one Bonnies fans will want to forget as they lost to all three of their opponents, Georgia State, Creighton, and Akron. All of these schools are superior in roster comparison, especially at the time with the Bonnies top players being down.
One player who shined over the Cayman Islands Classic was freshmen Kyle Lofton. Lofton has been superb this season at the helm for the Bonnies. He is averaging 14 ppg this season and averaged 14 points per game at the Cayman Island Classic. The Bonnies may have found a gem in the young gun from Putnam Science Academy.
Later in the episode, the guys discuss the Canisius and Delaware State games. The Bonnies manhandled the Golden Griffins as they saw the return of Courtney Stockard and his 19 points. The Bonnies will look to keep improving as they take on Delaware State this Saturday in the Rielly Center.
