7. Sunday was a great day for new coaches.

South Carolina rallied from a 15-point deficit to defeat Milwaukee in overtime, giving Frank Martin a dubya in his first game as a Gamecock. Larry Brown’s SMU debut saw all five starters score in double figures in a 73-58 victory over Loyola Marymount. Sports Illustrated’s Andy Glockner joked on Twitter that, after the game, Brown resigned and contacted the Los Angeles Lakers about their once vacant head coaching position.

But his performance against Georgia Southern (16 points) in his team’s season opener suggested that he’s healthier than most realized. That’s clearly a good sign for a Crusaders squad that needs to build momentum -- and give Van Wijk more reps so he can continue to work on his postsurgery mobility -- prior to the start of Horizon League play.
