Wonder if Mullin will expand the rotation for this one. VCU goes a legit 10-12 deep, because of the havoc.

Better matchup for us than Temple. We have the guards to handle their press effectively. The tempo should also be to our benefit. Clark will have a bounce back game and will hit a few 3s.

It was just a few days shy of two years ago when we lost to VCU in the battle for Atlantis 75-69. Only one player from each side who played in that game is still on the rosters now. For us Shamorie Ponds and for VCU De'Riante Jenkins who wer both freshmen then.

As I remember it, we played decently in the first half but their defense shut us down after that and they pulled away late. We hopefully are much better this time around, but their defense will be the best one we have faced so far. It should be a good test and I expect us to play better D than we did against Cal. I am going to the game and hoping for the best.

Johnnies win by 10, forcing turnovers & getting some easy buckets. Get Clark a few buckets early to avoid him pressing & getting perimeter happy and fouling. SJU gets the hardware.

You just get the feeling that we are so insanely overdue to win one of these things. How long has it been, anyone know? Mid season tourneys have never been friendly to us regardless of who plays in them it seems. Playing well on ESPN2 in front of a big national audience is important too...affects perception. This game will be on at bars all over the country and many at home will flip over to it after work casually. Kind of like a MNF type thing.

I feel like this one can get mucky with the defenses likely both being intense. Probably lots of TO's on both sides. I hope we look almost as crisp as we did playing Rutgers, because we will need it. This is going to be the best team we faced thus far. If we can get through this one, get hardware, then handle Georgia Tech, the rest of the schedule should be a bit easier on us.

Undefeated with wins over Rutgers, Cal, Georgia Tech, and VCU would probably have us ranked.
