Houston Cons: Easiest schedule on paper.
Houston Pros: Memphis could be a trap game and they struggled with a bad SMU team at home not too long ago. If Shake is back for that game then SMU is a whole different team.

Wichita Cons: They'll likely be favored to win every game
Wichita Pros: Again, if Shake is back, SMU has a fighting shot at home. UCF on the road could be a tight game too. They've already lost at home more than once, so that works in our favor come March 4th.

UC Cons: The conference title will likely not be decided already come our last game - one that will be on short rest and one we likely won't be favored to win.
UC Pros: Should win the next 3 games by double digits.

They are shooting lights out. What I would do to have just one or two pure shooters like they have.

So Houston outscored ECU 61-13 in the first half yesterday?! That's ridiculous!

I didn't think any team in the league would beat our mark of only 15 points in a half but ECU did the remarkable.

After we held UCF to a league-low 38 points in an entire game, UCF held SMU to 37 points last weekend.

UCF hit their first shot of game like 20 seconds in and didn't score again till like 8-9 minutes left in half. If the refs hadn't given them multiple trips to the line bailing them out on some calls they don't even get to 13. Just amazing. And that's without Tacko slowing things down.

Ah, you're right. Too many low scoring halves to keep track of.
