    HUGE game tonight. A win and we're presumably with the Florida/UConn bracket. A loss and we're likely in for two games of dreck.

    Really need to start looking the part tonight, at least in spurts. Per Steele it sounds like they've had a few good practices and with another night of shooting like they have been, there's a real chance X will be dead last in D1 from 3 (currently at 344th).

    Have we tried underhand?

    Alright, boys, this is the last shot we got! We're gonna run the picket fence at 'em! Jimmy, you're solo right! Everett, Merle should be open on the other side of that fence! Now, boys, don't get caught watchin' the paint dry!

    They have to start hitting eventually right?? I'm hoping we take care of business tonight, favored by 9.5, but Towson seems to be sneakily tough. I agree, we need to start looking like a Top 25 team, though we're 4-0, it has been un-inspiring so far. Hoping we come out early and jump on them, let's see if they can handle a couple blows to begin the game with, the more they hang around, the more difficult it'll be for us.

    ...and they did not get back on defense and the other team almost hit a buzzer beater.

    Have a feeling offensive floodgates open tonight.
