THey are a matchup nightmare now that Anderson is playing. We are going to need Haynes, Porter, and Stith to play really well defensively and to hit our 3s.

I think you'll find this to b a misperception. We had heard the same thing but soon found this to b false. He has done a fantastic job with this team even though we have been short on players.

Seen him coach for years.

Me too. His talent is supreme this year. His starting 5 consists of:

1. Bearden (Really good player from buffalo)
2. Hollingsworth ( top tier freshman)
3. Darius Thompson (really good player that got minutes at UVA)
4. Justin Johnson (Inherited recruit that has been a top CUSA player)
5. Dwight Coleby (Transfer from Kansas...enough said)
6. Anderson (Top tier freshman)

This says nothing about his in game coaching abilities.
He has done an excellent job mixing his defenses and managing his personnel to maximize what we can get out of our players. He has been a great motivator getting everyone on board with how he wants them to play. That is important if u want to win. Getting players to buy in and play.hard. Have yet to see our guys not give it their all. They truly love playing with each other and it shows. They never quit. You'll see that soon enough.
With all that said we still may lose but I expect us to give all u want. Your place is one of the tougher venues in cusa to get a road win. May the better team that night win. Good luck

I am having a hard time seeing a winning outcome for us. I hope I am wrong.

Talent wise, they should beat us. But, we are at home and Jones typically coaches circles around Stansbury gives me a little bit of hope.

I hope I'm wrong but I just don't see students getting excited and coming out strong for a Thursday night game against WKU, even if Coach is asking for it

If history is on our side I expect the guys are amp'd and we make a statement win out of it. We really need one of those.

Showing up and being a rowdy student section at the game are 2 different things.

WKU is a pretty balanced team and have a couple of players that can cause trouble in the post. Thompson (UVA Transfer) is a tough player that can score. Can't wait to see Haynes guard him. Keys as always...
1) Trey and Brandon have to say out of foul trouble
2) Have to hit a couple of outside shots early to keep WKU honest defensively
3) Rebound and get a few easy baskets in transition.

If we can create a home floor advantage....That should be worth 2-5 pts. Could be enough to get us the W.
Here's the big difference between now and then! If it were Blaine Taylor asking for the Scope to be full, it would be! JJ asking for The Ted to be packed is a joke! JJ doesn't have the fan support BT had and never will.

Maybe we could get JJ to grow a big mustache so the students could wear fake ones.

Similar to BW asking the "12th Monarchs" to come to Foreman each home week.
