Welp,

Another game to watch. TT is great on defense. What are your keys to the game?

I’m really looking forward to this game. TTU is a great team as reflected by its #9 AP ranking and #3 seed. But the thing that gives me great hope for another win is how our guys reacted throughout the ASU game. They fully expected to win. There weren’t any of the wild celebrations that accompanied last years rout or Arizona. These guys are determined. They are all business. And they throttled ASU who beat many good teams this year. Go Bulls!!

I think our keys to the game are essentially always the same:

1) Attack the entire game

2) Cause turnovers

3) Stay out of foul trouble

Sounds right. 

They are the best team defensively in the country. This could be interesting.

My biggest fear in this game will be that we will essentially be a road team. TT fans travel very well. So the crowd could be against us. Other than that it’s abkut which team imposes their style. We play good defense they play great defense. They play good offense we play great offense. Something has to give.

UB gets to play with house money.  They are used to being in front of unfriendly crowds.  They can play free and easy the pressure is off.  Play thier game they win.  Go Bulls

A very interesting synopsis of UB. Experience and balanced scoring but I lost track of how they were ranked in rebounding in the country. I think rebounding is the most important part of the game. Even if you are not shooting great rebounding the ball on both ends can overcome some other areas you are struggling in. The other biggie is defense. How many games this year were won when we locked down on the defensive end. Go Bulls!!!!

Anyone know what CJs point total is to now?

1976

24 to 2000 and 28 to the record. 

Really will need two games, especially with TTU on deck. Let's win this for CJ.

A tough game for sure coming up but imagine being able to talk Sweet 16 for 4 or 5 more days? And I'm sure Nate will have a game plan that gives us a great chance of winning. He is a terrific coach (not new news).

I want that sweet sixteen so bad so I can see my Bulls live here in LA. 

I'm still putting my place up for anyone that comes out for the games here in Anaheim.

If we played the same way we did yesterday against TT Sunday, then we will win. We have to really avoid turning the ball over though. TT is not an offensive powerhouse and isn't the best on the glass, but their defense is insane. I'm confident we can win.

How far is Anaheim from LAX?

Like UBigbobby, I was smiling on my ride to work this morning as two dudes who I don't even know were talking UB basketball for 30 minutes on 550 radio. I couldn't help but laugh as these guys are so not used to talking hoops and smile because GR was wall to wall UB basketball. They did a pretty good job, just missing the insights we all know and would share.
