dissecting how his club could blow a 5-1 lead late in Game 2.BA

Saint Marys coach Randy Bennett wants to get a better look at his bench players, and he might get that opportunity when the 17th-ranked Gaels host Prairie View A&M on Wednesday (10 p. Nike Air Max Tavas Mens Trainers .m. ET) in Moraga, Calif.In the Gaels season-opening 81-63 victory over Nevada, Saint Marys all-conference guards James Rahon and Emmett Naar played extensively, with Rahon logging 40 minutes and Naar 35.Tonight I wasnt as trusting with our bench, Bennett said after the game. I rode Joe. We need to get Joe and Emmett some breaks.Rahon and Naar combined for 17 points, 16 assists and just two turnovers in the opener. However, the coach knows he will need more depth as the Gaels prepare for Saturdays game at Dayton. That road game against a Flyers team picked to win the Atlantic 10 will indicate whether Saint Marys is worthy of its national ranking.Certainly Naar and Rahon will be in the starting lineup against Prairie View (1-1), but it remains to be seen whether Jock Landale or Dane Pineau will get the start.Pineau, a preseason all-conference selection who started all 35 games last season, has been bothered by back problems that caused him to miss practice time.Of the six weeks of preseason, he practiced maybe two, Bennett said.As a result, 6-foot-11 junior Landale got his first career start against Nevada and responded with career highs in points (33) and rebounds (nine). Pineau played just 12 minutes off the bench, and Bennett said afterward he has not determined his starting lineup for future games.Landale was particularly effective in the low post, and teams are reluctant to double team him because of the Gaels ability to hit 3-pointers.If they double, I just kick it out, Landale said. Three is better than two.Prairie View A&M may present a bigger challenge than expected, considering it pulled off a surprising 84-78 victory at Fresno State on Monday.The Panthers traditionally play a difficult, road-dominated nonconference schedule. It is no different this season. Prairie View A&Ms first four games and 11 of its first 13 are on the road. The season is beginning with a three-game West Coast swing, which started Friday with a 78-58 loss to Oregon State and continued with the Monday upset of Fresno State.The Panthers, who were picked by the coaches to finish sixth in the 10-team Southwestern Athletic Conference, are operating under a new head coach, Byron Smith.Smith took over on an interim basis last January, when Bryon Rimm resigned with Prairie View owning a 1-18 record. Smith was elevated from his assistant position for the final 12 games, and the team went 6-6. He was officially named head coach in April.Smiths focus is on the defensive end, and that was demonstrated Monday, when the Panthers forced Fresno State into 18 turnovers.We have some athletic guys, some long guys that can jam the basketball, that pressure the basketball and get out and play and let our defense dictate our offense, Smith said.The Panthers starting lineup against Oregon State consisted of four junior-college transfers and Daquan Cook, a transfer from UNLV who is probably the teams best offensive player. He led the Panthers with 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting against the Beavers, and he scored 17 points on 4-for-11 shooting against Fresno State. His final free throw Monday gave the Panthers a 12-point lead with 43 seconds left.Daquan did a really good job offensively, Smith said after Cook scored 18 points in the Panthers 101-40 exhibition victory over Champion Christian last week. I believe our offense will grow, but Im a defensive guy. I really want to establish our defense and rebounding as we get ready to go into a really tough four-game stretch.Their defense will get a major challenge against Saint Marys, which shot 60 percent from the field and committed just six turnovers against Nevada. Nike Kaishi Run Womens . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. Nike Sock Dart Sp Independence Day White .
