Nova Predictions

We match up well with these guys and won there last year. Unfortunately, they are much better than last year (so are we) and the game is at the Pavilion, not the Wachovia Center. My matchup to watch is Cunningham vs. Lazar. I think we'll see a reverse of the Jan 1 game, with Nova pulling away late and winning by 8, 83-75. Maybe James can get in Scotty Reynolds's head.

I'm unsure. One part of me says that 1. we match up well and 2. we should be really pissed off after that horrible performance in Tampa. Therefore we might pull it off. The other part of me says that Nova is pretty darn good (only have 4 losses I think, and absolutely gave the game away versus Louisville), and it's on the road, so we'll probably lose by 4-8pts. I honestly don't know on this one. I will say that if we shoot greater than 45% overall, 40% from 3, and 70% from the line that we will probably win. Key matchup is James vs Reynolds. The game at the BC was won in large part to James' defense on Reynolds. If he can keep him in check again, we have a great shot at winning this game. This game looms large after that USF debacle.

Zone Defense is for Pussies said...

MU by 5

i really hope we can win with Jerel only scoring 20 so he can break the record on Saturday.

For once, I like the way Zone is thinking. Note, I don't like Zone (at all), I just like the way he is thinking. Boeheim and Jeter as personal heroes? Fucking wantypaist.

for the record D3Some...i hate your guts too. and boeheim isn't a hero he's a jackass who is best known for his 2-3 zone defense which as I've said a million times is for pussies. jeter gets a lot of pussies, hard to not have him a hero isn't it?

To answer your question, Zone:

No, it is not difficult to not have Derek Jeter as a hero. (Was that a triple negative?) In fact, it's one of the easiest things I've ever done.

you are just jealous!

Rubie Q said...

Of whom? (Or is it: "of who?" My grammar is off today.) Jeter (for being Jeter) or you (for being in luv with Jeter)?

Zone Defense is for Pussies said...

probably both;-) can we get back to the original point of this post...rubie are we going to lose by 20 or 30?

Like I said last week, I gave up prognosticating after I predicted 9-9 in conference...

Though that number is still in play. Hmm. I could be right yet...
