MBB: WKU Game - Thursday
JJ is asking for the Ted to be packed. Let's hope the student section is packed and loud. 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.

A great environment could be the deciding factor in this game. If the fans bring it, the players will too. This is not the time to let them down. BRING IT THURSDAY NIGHT!

I plan to be as loud as possible! Hope the students show up! And if we can win Thurs - just imagine the atmosphere Sat vs Marshall (who I’m sure you know bounced us from the CUSA tourney last year). Exciting times - LET’S GO MONARCHS!!!

If you observe who is observing the threads, you can see some Hilltoppers are starting to visit. Welcome - and glad you care - it’s becoming a nice rivalry! You have a respected program and we’re glad you’re in the conference. But hope we send you back with an “L” this Thurs - but we’re going to have our hands full.

Are the students back at school by Thursday? I know several state schools don't go back until next week.

It's a cable channel, I get it with the sports package. They have done a good job with our games in the past. I would not mind at all if we got more and more games on the network.

The channel is also available through Sling and can be accessed online, though you may need to login through your cable/internet provider to gain access to the latter.

RE: MBB: WKU Game - Thursday
Thursday 8:00 at the Ted: Western Kentucky (11-5, 3-0 CUSA). Bein TV.

Results to date: Missouri St (80-85); Ky Wesleyan (83-53); Nicholls St (100-86); Villanova (58-66); Purdue (77-73); SMU (63-61); E Kentucky (83-51); Wright St (78-60); Ohio (84-89); Wisconsin (80-81); Indiana St (81-65); Belmont (72-75); Austin Peay (72-55); La Tech (69-68); S Mississippi (82-66); Marshall (112-87).

Last game: Senior guard Darius Thompson had the Hilltoppers second ever triple-double (33 pts, 10 RB, 10 assists) to lead the rout in Huntington. WKU dominated the game in every aspect, shooting 62.5% FG, out-RBing Marshall 53-26 and winning PIP 70-20. Justin Johnson added 27, Dwight Colby 18 (14 RBs), Josh Anderson 16 and Taveion Hollingsworth 12.

Stats: 79.6 pts (vs 70.1); .504 FG (.398 3s); .680 FT; +1.5 RB; A/TO= 1.23

Starters
F Justin Johnson (6-7 245 Sr). 32.1 min.; .535 FG (12-28 3s); .487 FT; 8.7 RB; 13.4 pts
F Dwight Colby (6-9 245 Sr). 27.5 min.; .629 FG; .717 FT; 8.3 RB; 2 blocks; 12.1 pts
G Darius Thompson (6-4 190 Sr). 36.8 min.; .489 FG (33-78 3s); .723 FT; 4.6 RB; 5.1 assists; 1.6 steals, 15.2 pts
G Taveion Hollingsworth (6-2 165 Fr). 33.7 min.; .520 FG (20-40 3s); .672 FT; 2.3 assists; 1 steal; 13.7 pts
G Lamonte Bearden (6-3 170 Jr). 28.0 min.; .424 FG (8-26 3s); .826 FT; 2.9 RB; 4.1 assists; 1.8 steals; 11.7 pts

Bench
G Josh Anderson (6-6 180 Fr). 19.0 min.; .750 FG; . 444 FT; 4.0 RB; 16.0 pts (Marshall 1st game)
F Marek Nelson (6-7 165 Fr). 14.8 min.; .529 FG (3-8 3s); .536 FT; 2.3 RB; 4.5 pts
G Jake Ohmer (6-1 170 Fr). 22.3 min.; .396 FG (22-63 3s); .818 FT; 1.5 RB; 1 steal; 8.3 pts

Best shooting team in CUSA (top 25 NCAA) that dominates the paint (678-449 points in paint) which opens up defenses for the snipers (#1 CUSA 3pt%). Colby & Johnson form a very physical, dynamic interior tandem. WKU has made as many FTs as their opponents have attempted.

RE: MBB: WKU Game - Thursday
This is going to be a tough game. I think WKY is probably the best team in the conference. The only positive note is their head coach is a terrible in-game coach. A win here would be a really good accomplishment.

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.

FYI it's available through Sling but you need to add the sports package (+$5/mo). Took me forever to figure that one out. How cheap am I...? Hmm. Maybe I could add the package for the game then take it off after the game? Cheaper than a CUSATV day pass.

It's also available online at their website.
https://connect.beinsports.com/us/

And through BeINs app on Roku.

That's literally every way to deliver a product short of giving it away for free on facebook/twitter or OTA TV.

Yeah, that package is now 10 dollars a month. Raised prices this week it appears.

Posted from mobile device. Hopefully it's coherent.

Correct. Hopefully the later start gets more students to the game.
