We are typically very prepared for them. Free throws cost us last year and in some years thy just had more talent.

I like our chances.

Could be a season turner if we can pull it off.

Pounding UMES wasn’t a season turner?

RE: ODU @ VCU Game
Played them well up there 2 years ago with Stith out. But we had Freeman.

I think this team is playing better and more importantly, tougher. They will need it in that environment. I think we'll know more about VCU's progress after tonight's home game against App State.

Why? Is App State supposed to be any good?

No, though they're pretty high scoring if given an opportunity (even dismissing the Toccoa Falls debacle, they scored 99 and 98 points in a pair of losses this season). I think it's more "if VCU dismisses them quickly, then they'll be in good shape for the ODU game; if they let App stick around like North Florida, it's not encouraging for them."

VCU is -11, and I suspect they'll cover that even if they underperform.

RE: ODU @ VCU Game
This game is really simple to determine the outcome. We have the advantage in the post. If Brandon and Trey can stay out of foul trouble we should be able to establish the low post. The issue will be the tricky tack fouls and if the FECESU crowd can pressure the officials to make calls. Also, if FECESU is able to manhandle our guards it will make it easy to go down hill and draw fouls. I hope we play more zone in this game. They will show token pressure to limit our shot clock on each possess. We had FECESU beat at home last year until we let our foot off the gas. This game I suspect FECESU will be favored by 4 to 6pts.

RE: ODU @ VCU Game
I the converse around Bazemore wearing a VCu shirt and that the players don’t see the rivalry/hatred the way we fans do.

Anyone know if our current crop of players has any bad feelings about vcu?
