I will say I don't expect to blow them out.

I think we certainly can blow them out but Im not expecting it. They have talent and they are just so up and down on the road. They ended SMU's home winning streak, and played houston down to the wire.

Then turned around and laid an absolute egg against UCF.


You never know what team will show up. But no doubt about it, they get up for big games and I don't expect an easy one.

Yikes. Don't start slow. I think we will win for sure with Sr. Leadership, but my heart could do just fine without another nail biter. ,😂

I think we're going to smother them. Teams on our court usually hit a wall in the 2nd half. I'm hoping to get production from the bench again. But not garbage time blowout stuff. Like building on the lead in the 1st half type production. Moore, Scott, and Brooks could be huge for us down the stretch. Obviously Broome too but I don't really count him in that.

Last time we lost at home we gave up 77 to Temple. That should piss off any guy who was on the team then.

I just think temple is the most unpredictable team in the nation.

When dominated rose last game and thatís a huge key to this game.

I could see a 77-55 win or a 72-68 win just the same.

Either way we should win.


Also I might have some tickets for sale for pretty cheap if anyone is interested. Upper deck 6 rows back behind the basket. 2 tickets

Message me if interested

Keys to the game:

Cats need to be up 20 with 5 minutes to go so we can all go to bed at a reasonable hour. 9pm weekday tip time and NKU traffic, oy vey.

Definitely would be nice to see UC get off to a better start early in the game and obviously keep the same 2nd half effort. Maybe Mick should try to mix something up. I would probably start with Broome starting and see if that helps. Against better teams, those slow starts are death.

That's actually a pretty short list: Justin, Jacob and Gary.
