Preview: St. Bonaventure Bonnies
Bonnies expected to struggle with loss of last season's top three scorers
2012: 14-15 (7-9 A-10)
In-conference offense: 1.07 points per possession (7th)
In-conference defense: 1.09 points allowed per possession (14th)
Say this for Mark Schmidt: He has a firm grasp on the power of randomness. He consistently points to three plays -- ones that cost the Bonnies a last-second loss against Xavier and overtime defeats to Temple and Richmond -- as all that stood between his team and a second straight 10-6 A-10 record. But if Schmidt can't figure out how to replace his top three scorers, probability will catch up to St. Bonaventure this season.
