Highly doubtful

This is richmonds best team since their sweet 16 season and our worst since Blaine was boozing it up on the sidelines

I know the odds are long. But I think this is a pride game. A person fights harder when someone wants to fight them on their front yard in front of their family. I expect a dogfight and we prevail. I will be their to cheer on our Monarchs.

RE: ODU vs Richmond
Even at home it will be a Herculean task to win this.
This Richmond team is likely not as good as Illinois, and does not have a dominant big like Illinois had, however they play a 3 guard offense and everyone scores.
They are fast and precise with the Princeton Offense.

G Jacob Gilyard is 50% from three, the other two starting guards are at 45% and 43%.
Four of the five starters are over 80% from the line, one being at 88%

We should have the advantage on the boards and we will need to make that count.
We could be able to score inside, if we can learn that skill before the game. 05-stirthepot

I am not optimistic, as I think this UR team is much better and more polished than VCU this year.

Our bigs are so bad they can't even make garbage put backs. Offensive rebounding doesn't even matter much.

All sound arguments - long odds indeed. Don’t disagree. But let’s see how this front yard fight unfolds. Oliver is a new, impactful element - and our home crowd that should lift all our players’ performance. Hope the faithful shows up in force.

A dogfight? Like maybe a St Bernard against a Chihuahua???

About half of the rating services have ODU defeating the ticks.
This one is remarkably accurate. ODU by 4, 69-65.

Sagarin has the Monarchs beating the bugs by 3. It will be a dogfight, make no mistake.

ODU has taller guards, which will give the Spatters` guards fits. They have munchkins for guards.

I haven't seen that pride or fight out of our guys yet this year except maybe at NE. Would love to be proven wrong.

RE: ODU vs Richmond
Wednesday 7:00 at the Ted: Richmond (9-1). ESPN3

Results to date: St Francis, Pa (100-98 OT); Vanderbilt (93-92 OT); CS- Northridge (90-62); Mc Neese St (87-57); Wisconsin (62-52); Auburn (65-79); Boston College (64-44); Hampton (80-63); S Alabama (75-57); Charleston (78-71).

Last game: Charleston opened the game 12-4. UR responded 13-4 and added a 15-5 run to lead 39-31 at HT. Charleston again opened 9-2, but UR always responded to win 87-71 in Richmond. Blake Francis led the Spiders with 20 pts (6-14 FG, 4-9 3s, 4-4 FT), Grant Golden had 17 (8-11 FG, 1-1 3s), Nathan Cato 11 (5-6 FG, 1-2 FT) and Andre Gustavson 10 (4-8 FG, 2-4 3s).

Stats: 79.4 pts (vs 67.5); .498 FG (.415 3s); .795 FT; -1.5 RB; 8.0 steals; A/TO= 1.6; 18.2 assists

Starters
F Nathan Cayo (6-7 225 Jr). 25.4 min.; .642 FG; .882 FT; 4.0 RB; 9.2 pts
F Grant Golden (6-10 255 Jr). 25.5 min.; .551 FG (1-4 3s); .667 FT; 8.0 RB; 2.8 assists; 12.1 pts
G Nick Sherrod (6-4 230 Jr). 32.2 min.; .465 FG (33-73 3s); .800 FT; 5.5 RB; 2.1 assists; 14.7 pts
G Blake Francis (6-0 175 Jr). 32.1 min.; .440 FG (32-74 3s); .867 FT; 2.2 RB; 3.1 assists; 18.2 pts
G Jacob Gilyard (5-9 160 Jr). 36.3 min.; .582 FG (27-54 3s); .808 FT; 4.2 RB; 6.5 assists; 3.8 steals; 16.2 pts

Bench
G Andre Gustavson (6-4 195 So). 18.9 min.; .420 FG (3-18 3s); .556 FT; 2.9 RB; 5.8 pts
F Tyler Burton (6-7 195 Fr). 15.2 min.; .310 FG (1-9 3s); 1.000 FT; 2.8 RB; 2.6 pts
F Souleymane Koureissi (6-9 215 So). 10.3 min.; .625 FG; .500 FT; 1.9 RB; 2.6 pts

Great guards result in the most efficient way to run up a score…steals, 3-pointers and layups. UR was picked 6th pre-season A-10, but are currently receiving top-25 votes. Pre-Charleston UR was #5 NCAA FG%, #7 3% and 3s/g (25.3/g). The Spiders return 12/15 players and 90% of scoring from their 2018-19 team. PG Gilyard is 2X POW and 1st team preseason A-10. He is #1 NCAA in steals/g and #5 3%. Grant Golden was 2nd team pre-season A-10 and anchors their interior.

RE: ODU vs Richmond
Having Oliver gives me a bit of optimism, maybe teams will focus their #1 or #2 defender on him now, which will let Green and Godwin thrive a bit more like last year.

Our bigs are still a massive liability and I don't have much hope for postseason based on how little they've progressed. I think we will wind up being a middle of the pack team and might win one game in the CUSAT.

But for tomorrow, I'm just looking to see how Richmond handles Green, Oliver, Godwin and Wade on the floor at once. Maybe it won't matter what our big does if those 4 can click with small ball.

RE: ODU vs Richmond
I think we can get this game. UR has played 7 home games so far and we are finally getting home. We have had a good history against them ( held that midget pg to 0 points last year). I am sure he will have a better game ( can’t get any worse) but hopefully our size on the perimeter will give them some problems. We need Dickens to continue to show some improvement as he will have his hands full with Golden. I thought the past two game Dickens has started to look better. Still not what we expected but better. We’ll be there. Anxious to hear a good reception for Oliver when he gets on the floor.

The Sputters have no depth and certainly none inside. They have one decent inside guy- Golden. If he gets in foul trouble, they are toast. His replacement is a guy who is built like a string of spaghetti. If ODUs taller guards block shots on the perimeter, the Spewters are going down.[/u]

Definitely, Sherod may be their best player. What a family of players Sherod came from. His granddad at VCU, his dad with us, and now Nick at UR.

Yea, Edmond was probably the best but I really haven't seen much out of Nick during 2019. But in the end, perhaps Carver will feel a bit slighted and put up a career night.
