Our defense is the MONSTER under your bed. I don't blame coaches for waking up in a puddle at night. I would rather deal with Freddy Kruger TBH. There is nowhere to hide from our D on the BB court.

Playing in their place will be tough but I really don't see us spotting them a 18 point lead early in the game this time.

These guys are no joke! I hope we can get up early like they did (I would settle for 5-8 points but 18 would be nice...lol). We seem to get better as the games go on. They are well rounded with shooters, play makers, and capable bigs. We are the better team but on the road this may be close to a pickem game TBH.

I feel very comfortable with Gary and Jake leading the team on the road...they are all business all the time. Cumberland is similar and doesn't get caught up in the crowd emotions. We need these guys to settle us down. Kyle is making better decisions recently. We have some options at PG to change dynamics if we need to.

Bring the intensity and focus. Play our typical ELITE D. Get after all rebounds and loose balls. Take care of the ball. We win!!

They are 8th in the country at home in defensive points per possession per Justin berg.

Can we agree that we if lose we donít have a meltdown? Because a loss to a top 30 team that will ultimately help our league is not the worst thing in the world.,

I know if start losing itís going to be hot take Central.


We need to shutdown brooks and Davis from 3. They both can light it up at home and gray and Davis have the ability to get our defense scrambling

Also felt that Devin Davis plunked us for 30 minutes. Need Gary to show him who is boss

I'm going to fire off hot takes at a rate never seen before on this site. I may even call for just shutting down the program. Stay tuned.

NO way no f-ing how!! I can assure you I will not be lambasting our team under any circumstance...but losing is not an option. We are the better team and we need to play like that.
