    Re: Cyclones face somewhat tricky game tonight vs. UMKC

    I think mental toughness is going to be the hallmark of this team going forward. Not saying they won't stumble along the way, but between Ejim, Niang, Kane and Hogue, I think they would be ****** off if they lost a pick up game.

    15 point win. Close but not too close.

    As long as Ellerman gets a double double I'll consider it a good night.

    I don't think this will be tricky at all

    Re: Cyclones face somewhat tricky game tonight vs. UMKC

    You know, would it be such a terrible thing if this was a scary game around halftime? This doesn't seem like a team that would be capable of finishing the job even if they put a scare into the team early and it would be nice to get that kind of game out of their system early.

    Re: Cyclones face somewhat tricky game tonight vs. UMKC

    According to kenpom, UMKC is an interesting combination of high tempo (19th) and bad offense (331st).

    Creighton beat them 96-70. UNO beat them 101-71.

    We play better defense than either of those teams. I think this game is 95-62.

    It won't be. UMKC is a bad low major. Nothing tricky about it in any way.

    Re: Cyclones face somewhat tricky game tonight vs. UMKC

    I think you guys missed the point, or you didn't even read the article. The "tricky" part is where the game sits on the schedule. I wrote a few times in there that UMKC itself shouldn't pose a challenge at all. The challenge is remaining focused after two big wins in front of what will likely be a comatose crowd.

    Yeah... I read it and got the point. I think it is closer than a blow out.. but we win comfortably, even with the focus factor.

    I'm definitely glad we aren't playing UNI or someone else who would be able to take advantage of us sleepwalking through the first half, if that happens.

    Re: Cyclones face somewhat tricky game tonight vs. UMKC

    I think this game is over early in the 2nd half, if not by halftime. Kane and Ejim won't allow any letdowns with this team. This team will follow Elvis' logo -- TCB-lightning bolt (Taking Care of Business in a Flash).

    This is a great time for our young guys to get some good experience so we can help avoid scary situations like the end of the BYU game.
