C'mon. 1-5 at worst. We should beat Tulane.

1-5 at best.

:)



Seriously though if we cant figure a way to get tonight, Cincinatti and Tulsa (where weve never won, I dont think?) could really be ugly.

Only thing we have going for us tonight is Vital in Gampel. He has his best shooting nights in there. If he has one of those 6-10 from 3 games we may be OK. Otherwise........

I feel like we play SMU well at Gampel. A win here would be nice leading into a weekend showdown against Cincinnati.

We somehow beat them at GP last year. Was that the game Vital got into a fight during pregame or was that UCF?

Which reminds me, why is UConn playing 2 games in 3 nights? Worst case if that happens they should be playing both games at home in that stretch.

I think this will be your typical tough, grind it out Uconn/SMU game, 61-52 type game. I feel if Uconn wins it will be like the zona game but in reverse (obviously in reverse), keeping SMU just at arms length but with a little more wiggle room in this one than the Zona game and obviously less scoring. If Uconn wins it will be because someone finally steps up down low and one of the guards knocks down some big 3s in the second half and Jalan has a break out game (two of those three if not all three needed). If Uconn loses it will be because of the last 15 minutes, again and because of stagnant offense as the game wears on. I do not see as much running in this game as earlier in the season, I think Hurley has reigned that in a little but I think we might be pleased with rebounding if Uconn wins. If the Gampel crowd is in high numbers and pumped up that might just be enough. If, for the tip, it is half empty I see it as a bad omen.

I know that Cinci game is on ESPN2 primetime.. Based off the line theres heavy money on us because when I first saw the line open it was at -1.5. Def a good sign if were going off of line movement.

Line moving in our favor. Well up to 3. Big sharks know something? Lol. Or the dumb public money across the country still thinks uconn is good and likes the short face at home?
