That sux.....I feel bad for Devendorf. Although I hope he doesn't get angry about the loss and go beat up some girl.
See, this is why I don't like zone defense. It leaves you too vulnerable to the 55-foot bank shot.
Death, taxes and Syracuse losing to some crap-ass mid-major at home. What a bunch of chumps. Boeheim should be ashamed.
So what's going to happen tonight? I expect Tenn to come out fired up after that beat down by Temple. I hope Buzz decides to throw in some zone defenses to keep the Tenn offense off-balance. I think that Temple "knew who they thought they were", but they didn't let them off the hook. I think we need to beg them to shoot the outside jumpers, and continue to do so until they show that they can hit it with some consistency.....which I don't think that they can (esp. Tyler Smith). Speaking of Tyler Smith, he's going to be a tough matchup. Who do we put on him? We can't let Lazar chase him around and get into foul trouble considering he's our best rebounder. So is it Jerel or Wes? I give Wes the nod.....he's strong and athletic enough to keep with him and might actualy have more speed than him which will help. Big game for us tonight. As long as we come out and stay away from jumpers we'll be ok. This game can be huge for our tournament resume! Let's kick Pearl's ars!
I think we are going to win...it helps that Prince guy is not playing and now it sounds like their 6'10 kid is sick and might be a game time decision so they won't be 100%. I think we are going to win in a battle 79-77. DJ has a huge night.
Guess what? I'm negative on this. We are what we thought we were. Short, can't shoot, no depth whatsoever. Remember the UL games last year? Rinse and repeat. 86-72 loss.
I think the better comparison is the UConn game last year.I see us on the receiving end of a good throttling, as well. 90-71.
Tennessee is over-rated. Bruce Pearl himself said that they are ranked too high. If we play "our game".....meaning penetrate like crazy (that sounds odd but you know what I mean)....we will win the game. I like our chances. if Dwight continues his quiet 25 minutes of action (3 pts, 5 boards, and defends), Marquette 76 Tenn 71. I also have a HUGE prediction here......David Cubillan makes at least 2 jumpers tonight.
by make do you mean take or do you mean when the ball goes through the hoop? just looking for a little clarifaction.
Zone with a funny!! Condolences on your loss last night, by the way. I'm sure you lost a couple more hairs.
