@SMU

Game is Sunday at 4 on ESPN

Playing this one on the big network in a tough gym.

It played out: 3 of the last 5 years we have started 22-2, been on a 15 game winning streak, and are heading to SMU. We lost the other two. Milton is a ?, Foster out, we have to get this one. Get that monkey off our back and show everyone why this team is on a different level.

Foster is out, if milton is out, big big trouble for them. Milton in makes the difference for this SMU team. They going to have to shoot lights out regardless to stay in this game. Think cats by twelve to fifteen. Love how this team is playing, roles are defined and all of them have one thing in common, win.....

We've been here before. @SMU is no easy task. With Milton it becomes a lot harder. Without him, I like our chances to win 68-55

They are clicking along very nicely! When 1 guy doesn't do it we have a few others who can...it's a luxury we haven't always had on offense. Defense has obviously been phenomenal. I like our take care of business attitude! The right players are very focused right now and we have an extra gear when we need it. We haven't come out flat but maybe once or twice in 15 games. I like our chances in this game.

Many of us had this game circled for a long time as the start of a very tough run. We took care of ALL the business we needed to leading up to it. That, in itself, is a huge accomplishment IMO! Time to find that extra gear and finish this season off with an exclamation point!!

All our monkeys are coming off this year...lol! Every damn 1 of them! The SMU monkey, the solo conference title monkey, the conference tourney monkey, the protected seed monkey, good draw in the tourney monkey, and the Elite 8 or beyond monkey.

Go big or go home...lol!

Nothing more I would like to see then us running the table. I really think the coach has instilled the right temperament in this team. One game at a time!!!

I think that philosophy has been why we are doing so well. We haven't overlooked the teams we were heavy favorites for. We understand virtually any team can have a good night and we can't take them for granted.
