    Next two games...

    are pretty darn important. I'm saying they are must wins now. Especially with Longar Longar out. If we can pick up those two, get a win in Colorada , and steal one somewhere that's not a bad season.

    I think that would give us 16 wins? Respectable.

    Scary to say, but now we have to start thinking about making a run for the NIT. Not sure we'll pull it off, but I would say that it would be a big boost if we could some how get into the field.

    NIT? No way, they only take 32 teams anymore. They would have to win at Colorado and at Mizzou, plus beat nebby, and steal one of the other 3 games. I just don't see that happening.

    Like I said, it would take a run to make it. I don't see it happening either.... just my last bit of wishful thinking :(

    Re: Next two games...

    Now we have to start thinking about NIT? We should have been hoping NIT for the last 2 weeks.

    The NIT didn't take anybody with less than 18 wins last year. We have 13 this year, with 7 regular season games remaining. We'll need to win every game we have a shot in for the rest of the year including probably one or two B12T games to even think NIT at this point.

    I have a hard time seeing us beating OU even without Longar - Griffen really hits the boards and that's where we're weak.

    Re: Next two games...

    I can see ISU winning at CU, Missou, and beating Nebby if they play like they did for the first 30 minutes of the Texas game.

    It's very do-able. The players just can't get down on themselves for losing to some of the best teams in the Big 12.

    Really, the only bad loss was the Nebraska loss - and even that wasn't that bad.

    Re: Next two games...

    Isn't there a third tourney this year, or was that just an idea?

    Re: Next two games...

    I see us beating CU and Nebby. That's it. Mizzou is very good at home, and Hannah will probably be back by then.

    It's depressing to think that, but I just don't see a whole lot of winnable games left. If we win those two games, that would put us at 15-16, and we'd probably have to win two in the B12T to even be thinking CBI. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think they take teams that are less than .500.

    If you follow MU sports at all, most comments and articles indicate Hannah is done for the season. Also, when he came back to campus from a week at home, he was arrested and charged with assult. Under the circumstances, I doubt if Coach A will isue a pass on that situation. Not that it matters, MU plays very well at home.

    Re: Next two games...

    Hopefully the team doesn't suffer a letdown after a disappoiting loss yesterday. That is VERY possible.

    I am very concerend about the Griffen boys (there are 2 of them) at OU. They are monsters and that game is away.

    I said it after the KSU loss that at best I thought we'd win 2 more games. I'm sticking to that. I don't think we'll win at Colorado however either. Nebbie at home and then one other...perhaps at Tech.

    Looking at 4-12 or 5-11 overall in the B12 (we were 6-10 last year). Which would put us at 14-17 or 15-16 overall (one of those wins against DII opponent that doesn't count against our overall as far as tournaments go...CBI or otherwise).

    Really don't think this team is looking at postseason play in anyway.

    Gonna have to wait until next year folks.

    Re: Next two games...

    Our weak links need to play better because the main components are doing all they can alreaady. At the level we are playng, I expect to beat Nebraska and Colorado. We need more help to win more. We need either Craig or Wesley to hit 25 in a game to add to Jiri and Rashon.

    Re: Next two games...

    If we win at Colorado with this team when we have never been able to win there with very good NCAA tournament teams, I will be almost as shocked as I would be winning Powerball.

    We tend to chalk that up as a win just like the Hawks always chalk up Northwestern as a win. Look at where that has gotten both of us.

    I still think we can beat CU. They are the lousiest that they have been in years.

    We look better than last year although our competition in the Big 12 is now better.
