Whether UT is the better OVERALL team may be debatable but there NO question that in head-to-head match ups EMU has absolutely owned UT for the last three meetings. As someone pointed out we just don't match up well with them----particularly without a full compliment of true point guards. This may be considered as pure heresy on this board but I will also venture to say IMHO that in this game and in the one at Cleveland last March in terms of detailed game planning and preparation UT was out coached....and doesn't happen very often.
Actually I thought that the UT defense was quite good except for the last few minutes of the first half and then toward the end of the game when I think UT was just tired and James got a ton of fast break baskets. It was the offense that suffered the total meltdown except for Richardson who had more points than the rest of the team combined.
