I’ll ask the Lopes to try extra hard and knock off the mighty 3-8 Longwood Lancers from the Big South tomorrow. Arizona State handled them rather easily earlier this week.

It’s doubtful that GCU can contribute to our conference win column against non-WAC opponents when they visit Louisville the following game. Sigh...

I'd ease up on the sarcasm when talking about Longwood. The hung with the #3 team in the country for 20 mins, and GCU doesn't have anywhere near the firepower it took to bury Longwood in that 2nd half.

Should GCU win? I cautiously say yes. Has this Lopes team shown enough consistency to make me breathe any easier when thinking about taking on Longwood? Absolutely not.

Fair enough, fair enough. No point jinxing the guys before tonight’s contest. I just really hope they don’t look past the Lancers while gearing up for Louisville.

I’ve thought about going to see the Louisville game, as it’s only about 2.5 hours away from me. But I’d rather drive 5 hours and see them play a beatable Illini squad.
Hey, Wofford just took down North Carolina last night. They were ranked #237 in KenPom before the big win and are still ranked below GCU. While unlikely, we can still hold onto a little bit of hope against Louisville.
I know, I know, I'm an optimist!!! 02-13-banana

I’m all about some hope. They played Louisville close last year, so likely no element of surprise this year. Also, Louisville is in turmoil with the whole Pitino thing. If GCU plays at the level they did against Boise, they’ll have a respectable showing and should be in the ball game late into the second half. That’s the key... keep it within 8 points, so you’re only three possessions from tying.

UMKC has led in the last 5 minutes in 8 of their loses. They can't finish close games. Oh youth.

GCU up 20-5 early. Lopes are getting offensive rebounds seemingly at will. Longwood is turning the ball over quite a bit, and they look really tired.

It’s now 37-7. I don’t know where the Longwood team that played hard against Arizona State is tonight. 7 minutes to go in the first half. This game is a massacre. Props to Canyon for coming out focused and not playing sloppy against a struggling opponent. Shots are falling, and the defense is feeding and driving the offense. It’s a clinic tonight!!!

I will say Longwood has interesting jerseys. I’ve never seen argyle shoulders before!

Maybe they thought they didn't have to get up for you guys?

So Josh Braun sprained his ankle. And tonight the guys are flying to Louisville. So, the concern is now swelling due to the elevation / altitude on the four hour flight. Hoping he’ll be okay.

Meanwhile there’s a minute left. Canyon is up 84-53. Bench was cleared a while ago. Good game tonight for the PHX boys!!!

CSUB knows the feeling...also the feeling of a close loss to CMU this year.

To be fair, coach shot you guys in the foot by putting a walk on in charge of the most important inbounds of the game.

NMSU down 4 with 3 minutes left in Hawaii going up against Davidson. They were up 12 at half, but they have yet to recover from a 20-2 run by Davidson.

NMSU found a way to come back late thanks to Keyon Jones and Zach Lofton. Beats Davidson 69-68 and will play the winner of Miami and Hawaii tomorrow.
