All is good if you are in the House channeling our mojo and getting our chakras in line.

We know what Houston's game plan is already so that helps us. They used 14 of 15 fouls for their 3 post players to beat on us under the rim in the game up here. That will likely be the same game plan. Hit our free throws and we win going away.

True, but will those fouls be called on the home team in Houston? I expect a very tough night. But if the crowd in Houston's temporary home arena yesterday for Tulane was any indication, UC won't be playing in a hostile environment. And UC should be ready for Houston's opening intensity this time around. I hope 'Cats fans in the Houston area show up for the game; it appears good seats will be available.

Not sure if this deserves its own thread or not, so:

Were people taking that negatively? Seemed pretty dead on to me and complimentary.

As far as Gray's payback comments...good luck.

RE: Which of our stretches are the toughest?
The first stretch was tougher. Despite XU's incredible resume and pulling out some crazy wins I think them and Wichita State are fairly close in terms of how good they are. The difference really is Blueitt has been more dominant at closing than Shamet. However...UC had to go to XU in its first really big game of the year while this Wichita Game is at home. 3 of the 4 in that stretch were away from home, 2 of which were true road games. In this stretch UC also has 2 on the road, but gets the best team they play at home. I'd say full strength SMU is better than UCLA and Mississippi state (and fairly close to Florida), but we haven't seen full strength SMU in some time. That SMU team we played yesterday was a shell of itself.

That first stretch fans flipped out after the first two losses, but UC responded and got what they needed to out of it. Had they stolen the game at X we'd be looking at a 1 seed right now, but as is we're in really good shape. This is the biggest stretch of conference play and UC got off to a great start. Lets get the next 2 and really start dreaming of a top 2 seed and a deep run.

We are 30-2 against them....I don't recall a ton of home cooking in that gym.

They will try to out tough UC and will live and die by the 3. That is like trying to draw one specific card on an inside straight.

PS; Good seats are always available when its a Houston home game.

It appears that, except for the first 5 rows, the rest of the arena is General Admission seating. I guess that makes sense for them.

Voted for current, even though the last WSU game and conf. tourney maybe most important stretch of year.

Exactly. Unless they completely change the way they play for one game, which is doubtful. I believe Mick, after the first game said we were shocked by their intensity to start the game. That won't happen again. They are good, we are better.
