Thanks Knight - I poked around earlier looking at their roster and stats. Nothing really jumped out at me, looks like they have good guards and serviceable big men. On paper they look like a fairly similar matchup to us although their defense is much better (but then, everyone's defense is much better, we are something like 200th in the country in points allowed I think). None of their wins or losses jumps out at you other than that I don't know how they ended up playing Northern Iowa twice (and i think it was twice in one week). How does that happen? We know Mack can coach and that they will play hard, they always do.

Anyway I haven't seen them play yet this year - anyone else?

Have watched them a few times. Tough opponent with three good scoring guards in Macura, Sumner & Bluiett. Sumner is 6'4 Pg with a ton of talent. To me, he is the most difficult match-up. They don't generate much down low, unlike Creighton & Patton, so hope we can hold our own there.

If Ahmed has a better game & the dynamic duo are on we could hang with them hopefully and at least make it interesting. As always, Mack will have them prepared defensively.

Btw, Macura is a lot like those Duke kids who get under your skin & get away with things, chippy. :)

A scheduling quirk. The second Northern Iowa game was on the schedule. The first game was a tournament. "The Musketeers beat Northern Iowa 67-59 for championship of Tire Pros Invitational in Orlando last Sunday."

So if when we beat X, ergo, we are the reigning Tire Pro Champs. Eff the BE, I want us to be Tire Pro Champs.

I was surprised by their stats as well. They definitely shot it better last year. Still a very good and well coached team on the road. Hopefully we can play well.

We could have the same thing with Long Beach State next year. Don't know if it will be consecutive games, but we could play them twice (Depaul and Missouri State played twice this year, too).

We are scheduled to play a true road game at LBSU next year, and they are also competing with us (and six other schools) in the Disney World tournament.
