    Texas Southern up next

    1-6 with the W vs Oregon State. They have a pretty tough schedule so far.

    Should win. Not really impressed with anyone on their roster. Just can't sleep on them.

    Re: Texas Southern up next

    Quick turn around hurt us a bit against SEMO and I would expect that our guys have to be focusing on finals too.

    Hopefully, we just get the win and then we are off for a week.

    Re: Texas Southern up next

    only thing making me worry is they have a week between games, we have 1 day. I have a feeling we will win, but not by as much as we probably should.

    I am a cylcone fan, so I can always find more things to worry about. 1) we could have a big letdown after that emotional win. 2) the team begins finals the next day.

    I bet they are going to love the weather on Sunday. They will probably be tired from having snowball fights Sunday afternoon.

    Re: Texas Southern up next

    My kenpom scouting report:

    They are bad - roughly the same level of bad as SEMO and Alabama St. They did win at a fairly bad Oregon St team, and haven't played anyone else REALLY bad, but still, they are bad.

    The play mostly zone, so that will be interesting. Judging from the numbers they don't play zone well (opponents shoot a very high percentage) and they don't rebound well. I really liked our zone offense at times in the second half last night, we were very focused on not just firing the 3, but getting the ball into the zone first.

    They have some height, as their starters run 6-4, 6-6, 6-7, 6-7, 6-8. Their best player is their senior PG (Kevin Galloway), who is 6-7" and averages 14pt and almost 8 assists a game. He also leads them in rebounding at just over 5 a game while logging almost 40 minutes a game. Of course, he's also averaging almost 6 TOs a game.

    Their only other player who is averaging double figures is a freshman SG (Johnson-Danner), and he's really the only threat to shoot the 3.

    Pace-wise they play a little slower than average, but I think this is a team we don't have a problem running against, assuming our heads are in the game. I think we are a little sluggish at first and toss up some bad three's, but they we get it clicking in the second half and run away to a 79-51 win. Much like the SEMO game.

    bawbie--basically, they're USC-Upstate, SIU-Edwardsville, or any of those awesome December opponents, it sounds like. That sounds about right.

    And they lost to Drake.

    Yes, and we've got three more of them after this before conference play starts.

    Have I mentioned our non-con schedule is really really weak?

    And they lost to Drake.
    By 14. And KSU by 24. And even more telling, they lost to the worst team in the Big 12 (Oklahoma) by 30.

    Yeah, I'm taking us by about 20 too. No shocker here. We should win pretty handily.

    Now that we've beaten them, did Iowa help our hurt our SOS?
