    Re: UConn v Nova

    I was wrong about 'Nova. I thought they would show well. I love how that team is built with 3 scorers, a shot blocker, and the token scrappy white guy.

    Re: UConn v Nova

    Man, I hope we beat UNC. UConn is a better matchup for ISU than Nova; Nova's pressure would be more difficult without Niang.

    Also, press UConn. Twice in a row their press break was to try to hand off the ball under the opponent's basket from out of bounds.

    Re: UConn v Nova

    Man I hope we beat UNC, because we matchup favorably with UConn.

    Their defense relies on guard pressure/turnovers, which we handle very well. Their offense also runs through one(admittedly absolute stud) guy, which is why their offense has been wishy washy all season. No doubt if we get to the sweet 16 Napier likely goes off on us, but I guarantee they get way less points off TOs than they did against Nova tonight. I also read at some point midway through the 2nd half that Nova was 3/14 in the paint, and it was still a game. Yikes.

    Only concern is that we have to play UConn in the garden. Although their fans didn't show too well to Buffalo which is very close to them as well.

    Goddamnit. The path has lined itself with gold bricks, and in typical cyclone fashion we were delivered a swift kick the hangers right as we caught a glimpse of paradise.

    It's like that one Meatloaf song, except instead of drawing first blood, a cop pulled up and blinded us with a flashlight with our pants around our ankles then calls our parents for being out after curfew. High school mang. not even once.

    I was hoping for Villanova to pull it out. I honestly think with Georges we would have blown them out, and without Georges it still wouldn't have been close. We deserved as 2 seed over them for sure.

    Yes. The selection committee ****ed us. Guess who doesn't get hurt if we do get that 2 seed.

    Huh? How do you correlate that?

    I picked UConn over Villanova in all my brackets and never even thought twice about it. Nova was overrated all year.

    Common sense? But it's too early to play the "what if" game.
