    What will happen Saturday?

    First off, I think there should be a large crowd. 'Warm' day and a quality opponent. Now, how do we play? I think that it will be a battle like it was against KU. Brackins and Griffin will be competing down low and it will be a great battle. Hopefully, CB can set a new B12 record for points.

    The rest of the team needs to be hot. They need to put the last three games behind them and just play some solid basketball. I think that there is a 15.438% chance that we win, but I would be happy with a close game where our guys left it all out on the court. Thoughts?

    I think we will play them close but i also think they will end up pulling away late like every team does.

    Frankly I think Griffen watches some Iowa tape, he has the body to give Brackins the Tate treatment and we lose badly.

    I wouldn't anticipate a ton of down low battling. Probably some, but not a ton.

    Griffin is too short to be a post-guy in the NBA. He's extremly quick and is still developing his jumper. Both these guys need to work on their game facing the basket and it will be interesting to see how it plays out.

    I am sure that on the possesions in which Blake does post-up, he'll flat out dominate...

    Lose by 15-20 pts. It won't be close. This OU team reminds me of our 99-00 team. They are extremely tough.

    After what happened last night not only do we lose big Sat, I don't see winning any more than a couple of games the rest of the way.
