MyBB RE: Rhoades/ 2016 Rice basketball Thread
some hope for the Owls tonight in the Cash-Buy-It tourney as Asheville beats Astro-not Stephen Austin 80-68, and Cal Baptist is hanging tough with C-USA East "power" Middle(tennessee) 31-30 at end of 1H. Longtime fan favorite Drake handled Purdue(fort wayne) 87-65 in a gripping display earlier. Cash is King (no digital in this tourney, thank you.) CUSA powerhouse UTEP smashing all over national powerhouse Illinois(western) 80-54 in the even more ironic "Basketball Classic" tourney.

well...shut your mouth, as soon as I posted that, VCU decided to start playing a little tougher and closed the deficit down to 60-63 at 5 min.

edit: oops! now 60-65 at under 5 min. Still don't seem like they have enough juice; Ojay?

Nope! Not today. back to 7 pt deficit at the TV timeout. 62-69. On the Rhodes ag'in.

No one has to. Certainly many watch the basketball tourney(s) without having a team in the hunt. Not sure why all those folks care, but they do.

At mid-season, Owls were tied in win % with Rams, similar to last year, but same as last year the trends diverged again. Would like for Owls to pass their win percentage someday, but after watching that Richmond game, I'll be rooting for the Spiders to do some damage tonight as I knew the NCAA wouldn't let Creighton actually beat Kansas, esp. after Kentucky already became this year's "sacrifice to the masses" for ratings. Maybe someday the Owls could be that team, but until then, you have to pick what you can from what's left to root for.

edit: Deacons have it up to 8 with under 3 to play now.
now up to 10 with 2min to play to make you happy.
btw: a little closer to home, TexAgs beat Or-e-gone earlier in agame that wasn't that close 75-60 to advance. Now I can remember seeing a few post about some other Aggies winning a Tourney game somewhere, but not sure why those people would care about that one either.

You know it's really important when the OP (of this thread-within-a-thread) doesn't even mention the name of the other team. :-)

Looks like Wake takes this one as time winds down. One notable was both teams shooting percentage from Free Throw Line, where defense and size/strength don't matter: VCU 23-27 for 85.2% and Wake 29-37 for 78.4%.

Wake wins 80-74 to move on in NIT. If Owls did nothing in off-season but improve their pedestrian FT average, they'd win more games right there (Owls down at 71.4% overall FT percentage for this season.)

Also we care cause our conference mates ODU are their big OOC rival.

But this is the last season to use that particular reason to root against them.

Bailiff was not given any slack, at all, during his first 3 seasons, while our current AD overreacted in (allegedly) giving Rhodes a huge pay increase after season 1.

Just for fonzies:

Bloomgren 9-20
so far...

okay, he's got a few more to go until this season ends and he signs his new five-year extension with his bud'ro. 8-0 in-conference here we come!

So, 7-1 just to tie Bailiff - while the conference is worse than in Bailiff's first 4½ seasons AND when this coach has been given much more in the way of resources.
