KofJ: San Francisco Dons Season Preview

Maxwell Smart aka KOFJ

The Dons are coming off a season where they played 39 games. The limit is 40 games per season including tournament games. The Dons had a very successful season and have began the assent back to a possible top 3 in the West Coast Conference. The Dons are led by an up and coming coach in Kyle Smith who now in his third yr at USF is 42-30 and has his first year luck charm in guard Charles Mineland returning from labrum surgery. While Mineland was out last year the reigns to the team were passed on to a guy who bloosmed and has a cool name which is Frankie Ferrari who averaged 11 &4. Now with this multi threat backcourt this season could be even better for USF. The Dons have a blossoming 7 footer in Jimbo Lull who came on late last season and has the inside track at starting at center. They have complementry pieces in Matt Mcarthy who averaged a double double in the teams CBI run should use that experience to raise his production this year. There is also a very reliable three point shooter in Jordan Ratinho. If these guys take a step forward this team can finish top 3 in conference. The wildcard for USF wil be Dzmitry Ryuny, he choose some bigger time programs to come and play for the Dons, if he can run the court and spread the floor with his 6″9 frame it icing on the cake. The two departures are Souley Boum who is not that big of a loss because he started off very hot and lost his shot and playing time as the season went on. Chase Foster is a bigger loss but Charles Mineland does a lot of things Chase did not. Chase is more of a spot up shooter where Mineland is a slasher. He will be missed but his production will be found and more through Mineland.


This team has the size to be a force on the boards and improve on their rebound margin of 170th in the nation. I expect this team to average more than 70 pts per game and expect their scoring defense to improve with the length and experience this team got from their cbi run. This team can be a force to be reckoned with for bettors as 66.6 percent of their scoring comes back along with having a senior laden roster can only mean good things for the Dons program to come. Lets take advantage when this team is a dog and lets pound this team in there home games Best of Luck with your bets on The Dons KofJ aka Maxwell Smart
