Cal State Bakersfield just plays physical as a team. Their intent is to bump and grab as much as possible; committing more fouls than a ref can possibly call on each possession. At some point, the refs start to swallowing their whistles.

UT Rio Grande Valley is just chippy. They try to get into your head with borderline dirty plays. UTRGV plays hard and they don't give up on any play but that is usually at the detriment of the opposing player. I still remember last season when the little used UTRGV center hurt Ivan Aurrecoechea when he was on a break away dunk.

Cal State Bakersfield's defense roughs up opponents. The opponent usually comes out of the game black and blue. UT Rio Grande Valley defense make opponents play with eyes in the back of their heads and their head on a swivel. They don't foul as much as CSUB but they make those fouls count.

Just my opinion.
When your not that good you have to play dirty. Cheap foul and Ivan hurt him for the rest of the year and did the same thing to Trev Queen on a break away. The coach of UTRGV proceeded to charge at Jans like he wanted to fight. No class.

Ivan needs to take a little part of the responsibility. If he wasn't such a mediocre free throw shooter maybe people would be less inclined to foul him.

As for Queen, did we do that? Thought his last game was a Seattle, didn't play when y'all came over here. Or maybe you're talking about last year.


Ivan is shooting 74% from the free throw line in WAC games.

That proves the point. When he was facing gentlemanly, hands-off OOC teams, he was shooting poorly. Now that he's facing WAC style play perhaps he decided to practice a bit more.

It doesn't prove your point. Ivan shot 70% from the free throw line last season. He struggled early this year because he was playing hurt. He is now healthy.

Looks like my 16-0 prediction was correct.

Congrats. I don't know how anyone is ever going to be able to top this bold prediction.

It looks like your ability to predict front runners holding serve is only exceeded by your view of your own prowess. As a fellow Aggie fan , i wish you would cool it.
