    4 point favorites?

    Anyone else surprised that we are only 4 point favorites against Drake at Hilton?? They haven't played what you would call a competitive schedule (like us) and one thing I noticed is that they lost to the same D-2 championship Winona State team that beat Minnesota in the preseason.

    I think this game will be close (much like all our games this year...defense will keep us in many games where there isn't a good big man on the opponents' teams) but we will string together a big 2nd half Hilton Magic-fed run and win by 10.

    74-64...any other opinions??

    P.S. My fear is that we make Keita into one of those good big men that our team can't handle...see Tollackson from this year and Maric from last.

    I think you are pretty much right. Keita will look way better than he is. We need to figure a way out to make our big guys 25lbs bigger.

    We will lose if our bigs do not contribute. Gray is our best big at this point. Taggart could not hold a candle to Gray, and neither can Jiri or Marsden.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, 3sus, Hallice, Deonte, Dustin, Abdel, Monte, Matt, and McKaT.
