Cyclones face tricky game tonight in UMKC | News | Men's Basketball | Cyclone Fanatic
I think mental toughness is going to be the hallmark of this team going forward. Not saying they won't stumble along the way, but between Ejim, Niang, Kane and Hogue, I think they would be ****** off if they lost a pick up game.
Don't sleep on the Roos!
15 point win. Close but not too close.
As long as Ellerman gets a double double I'll consider it a good night.
I don't think this will be tricky at all
You know, would it be such a terrible thing if this was a scary game around halftime? This doesn't seem like a team that would be capable of finishing the job even if they put a scare into the team early and it would be nice to get that kind of game out of their system early.
According to kenpom, UMKC is an interesting combination of high tempo (19th) and bad offense (331st).
Creighton beat them 96-70. UNO beat them 101-71.
We play better defense than either of those teams. I think this game is 95-62.
It won't be. UMKC is a bad low major. Nothing tricky about it in any way.
I think you guys missed the point, or you didn't even read the article. The "tricky" part is where the game sits on the schedule. I wrote a few times in there that UMKC itself shouldn't pose a challenge at all. The challenge is remaining focused after two big wins in front of what will likely be a comatose crowd.
Yeah... I read it and got the point. I think it is closer than a blow out.. but we win comfortably, even with the focus factor.
I'm definitely glad we aren't playing UNI or someone else who would be able to take advantage of us sleepwalking through the first half, if that happens.
I think this game is over early in the 2nd half, if not by halftime. Kane and Ejim won't allow any letdowns with this team. This team will follow Elvis' logo -- TCB-lightning bolt (Taking Care of Business in a Flash).
This is a great time for our young guys to get some good experience so we can help avoid scary situations like the end of the BYU game.
The Kane-Ejim sandwich machine never rests. They are not like our football offense. What does vegas say?
I don't think this game will end up being tricky for two reasons:
1) Ejim and Kane provide GREAT leadership for this team and will have the team ready
2) The Roos play at a fast pace, which will get the guys in the rhythm of the game early. If we were playing a UNI-style take air out of the ball team, I'd be more worried.
Looking like a barn burner tonight 100-71.
Or this happens.
So they are the kanga"roos". I was trying to figure this out because it is a name of the musician that I have pictured. I do feel a bit sorry for what might happen to the Roos. I think our subs will get some time tonight which is good.
