    next 2 games

    if we could win these next two games we would most likely be 5th 6th or even tied for 4th which would be sweet coming into two big home games
    colorados a must win and @nebraska is almost a must win
    meanwhile everyone else in the big 12 should be beating each other up

    The 2-1 start was important, as the last two were likely losses. It's too bad that we weren't more competitive in them, but hopefully the guys can get back on track, because they are still sitting ok if they can turn it back on.

    The three loses that we have aren't really that bad. We lost to the top three teams in the league at their place. We just need to take care of the teams at the same level as us. The next two will really show how competitive we can be as the rest of the season goes on. The next two are also really important if we have any hopes of post-season aspirations.

    Let's go 3-1 in the next 4 ( I think very possible) and then see where we are...

    Re: next 2 games

    To help us go 3-1, Cameron Lee and Boorer should be on the court more as they appear to be our quickest guards over BP (35%), SH (21%), DG (34%).. We appear to be losing the speed battle in the back court. Rashon is our best shooter. If we cannot shoot, l;ets match their speed then.

    WHAT I SEE
    Guards play defense adequately, bring the ball up court fine, do some rebounding, yet we do not pass the ball well to the big men, as it does not look like we have an good offensive setup for this team. W look dysfuntional unless Wes or Craig or Jiri or Rashon hits a three.

    Our current guard play is only about 2/3rds what we need to be consistent. We must improve. Obviously Roby of Colorado will have a big day unless we do better at Hilton. We have to get better now.

    And I predict we will win 3 of 4 also.

    Re: next 2 games

    Our guard play is a question mark, but we are very young at that position. Also, we were playing 2 of the tougher teams in the country on the ROAD, let's see how they play these next 2 games and then maybe we could have a legitimate beef about playing time. I didn't hear any complaining when we were winning 8 in a row.

    3 out of the next 4 is still asking a lot out of our team. We can do it, but I won't say that we will. 2 out of 4 would probably be more likely.

    3 out of 4 is possible. Did anyone notice what Kansas did to NU. It was was one of the worst beat downs I have ever seen. We looked like world beaters compared to NU. As has been mentioned we have played the three best teams on their court. Things will be better from now on.

    We need to take CU seriously we have lost to them in past years at home with them being even crappier than they are now. Nebraska wont be easy we are ok down there but they have had a bum deal in the Big12 scheduling so these to games are must wins but are very tough.

    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Agreed. I'd put the over/under at 2. Win vs CU is a must and winning 1 of @NU, A&M, UT would be all I can expect at this point.
