UNCW
We can start a new thread for this game. We have a home game Thursday against the conference's best team. UNCW is getting votes in the top 25. In my opinion they are not a top 25 team, but are definitely a top 40 team. I fully expect them to lose only 1-2 games in conference for the season. This is not one of them.

UNCW is all about pressure and forcing turnovers. This does not bode well for our dragons who have been quite willing to turn the ball over. My guess is we will run and gun and see how many possessions we can get. I think the smarter play is to force them to play in the half court against a zone defense. My guess is we have over 20 turnovers in this one and far too many easy buckets for the seahawks.

UNCW- 94
DU- 73

RE: UNCW
I'm hoping to catch this game just to see this UNCW team in action. Don't think Drexel stands much of a chance, but I'm hoping Spiker is preaching this as a learning opportunity.

Wow. I don't remember ever seeing Drexel as more than a 10 point dog before at home. Not that I pay that close attention. That means that Vegas things that the dub is really about 14-15 points better.

Which I think is reasonable. They are a matchup nightmare for our squad this season. Unless UNCW gets stuck in the snow and the game still goes on, I really do not see much of a route to victory in this one, unless we magically just stop turning the ball over and break their press for easy baskets.

49-26 at the half. Nothing all that surprising, really. This UNCW team is just real damn good.

They are good but lets not give them too much credit. We made the game look really easy for them with all of the easy buckets and layup we gave them. We did not take care of the ball and we making some really silly pass attempts. Not sure why we think on semi fast breaks (against a team that is used to running) a bounce pass across the lane is ever going to work. Have a lot to clean up still. Free throws we atrocious again. Will be hard to make this a competitive game in the second half. Ingram is having a heck of a season though. Kid can't seem to miss anything he throws up.

RE: UNCW
The way this UNCW plays is probably pretty close to what Spiker's goal is. Need to see a little DU defense in this second half. Also, need to see Rodney go to the underhand free throw shooting method. If anybody needed to, they could just play Hack-a-Rod.
