#135 Charleston Southern Men's Basketball 2012-13

June 29, 2012
INDIANA SPORTS PAGE



It has been a long, long time since Charleston Southern has been among the favorites to win the Big South. Coach Barclay Radebaugh was brought in prior to the the 2005 season and it was not until last season that the Buccaneers had a winning record, either overall or in conference play. CSU finally broke through last season, garnering 19 wins, including a third place finish in the Big South. Point guard Saah Nimley will need to continue to develop his game if Charleston Southern is going to make their first trip to the NCAA Tournament since 1997. Nimley had a great freshman campaign, averaging 13.5 points and 3.9 assists. He needs to keep the turnovers down and not force as many outside shots, but those were generally freshman mistakes. This time around Nimley should be more efficient.

2011-12 Record: 19-12, 11-7
2011-12 Postseason: None
Coach: Barclay Radebaugh
Coach Record: 88-123 at Charleston Southern, 88-123 overall

Charleston Southern Men's College Basketball 2012-13 Team Preview

Who’s Out:
Kelvin Martin is the only loss, but he is a big loss. Martin led the team with 15.4 points, 9.1 rebounds and 1.6 blocks. His absence leaves a lot of places where things could go wrong for the Buccaneers. What happens if this team does not find another interior scorer? The rest of the team pretty much shot three-pointers last year and they got open looks because of Martin in the paint. Can anybody else rebound nearly as effectively as Martin? And the biggest problem might be on defense. Martin was a very good defensive big man and no other returning player is a shot blocking threat whatsoever.
