RE: UTEP
Just got home back to Richmond. Good win tonight. If Kalu could bring that energy every night we could be dangerous. On another note I talked with Ronnie Wade a good bit before the game and Jason is doing well after the surgery. Ronnie says Jason is going to work his butt off to come back strong. I think we all knew that but it was great to hear him say it. We are lucky to have that family in our program.

“That's happened far too often to Old Dominion this season. The Monarchs have lost six games this season by 3 points or less, one short of tying the school record, and 11 games by 7 points or less.

And it's been especially frustrating recently. In ODU's six losses since the New Year, the average margin has been 3.3 points. If the Monarchs had won those games, they would be 12-0 in Conference USA. Instead, ODU is 10-15 overall and 6-6 in the league.”

And 7 of our 10 wins are by 10 points or less.

Last year we won 7 games by either 2-3 points, 1 basket, which would have made us 19-15 and many would want jones gone.

This team is poised to make a run in the CUSAT. We’re a dark horse that no one is going to want to play.

We have 1 win against any team in the top 6 in our conference, a 4 point home win against Charlotte.

We just lost at home to UTSA. We are 4-6 over our last 10 games.

There is zero evidence to support your claim. I see zero evidence this team will win 4 games in 4 days. Zero.

I was pointing out the absurdity of playing the what if game.

Jones deserves credit for winning a title in a bad conference this year.

If you want to argue why it wasn’t a bad conference, I’m all ears and would love to hear it.

It’s a bad conference this year too and we are sucking which is even worse.

I understood the point you were making. And I’m not arguing whether the conference was good, bad, or mediocre last year. I was just pointing out your contradictory arguments that records matter except when they don’t matter.

RE: UTEP
Enjoyed the game. Hopefully the guys have a few more efforts like this one left in them. I wish this Kalu would stay around game after game. Everyone is up and down but they’ve all flashed some nice skills. I feel like our only consistent performer this year was Wade... but at least Reece gets thrown into the fire and maybe that will help him grow. Reece is great for 5 min stretches and terrible for 5. He needs to find that happy medium. He’s just soo jacked up to play he gets ahead of himself I think. But he’s definitely getting better.

Those jerseys are my colors! I specifically like the Old Dominion on the front versus generic alphabet U. Really good game by the fellas tonight.

Agree with others on the unis. They were dope. Big fan of that combo.

Reece and Kalu are finding their game and Kalu has insane body control in the air. Really enjoy watching those 2 play right now. Kid behind me at game kept going on about Kalu as his favorite player and was looking forward to watching him for 3 years when he comes to odu. Assuming he must be a sr in hs. Cool to hear some youth catching the bug.

Love when they break out those uniforms, they're my favorite by far.

Curry was great down the stretch. He had two drives where I still don't understand how he broke through the defense to find his way to the hoop.

Carver had his two best dunks ever. That putback jam was definitely his best.

They played great team defense. And I loved seeing the balanced scoring. It was just a fun night at the Ted all around.

Gotta give it up to Carver. I've been a huge critic for 3 years, but he seems to have finally found his game. He made shots last night he could have only dreamed of in the past. Love his determination

Reece is fun and scary to watch at the same time. I call him the Tasmanian Devil because his drives to the basket look like arms and legs flailing around.

One way to look at the inconsistency is that it makes us harder to prepare for. You dont know who will take over. Curry had 30 last game but only had something like 3 in the first half last night. And was not expecting 15 from Kalu. These guys surprise me every time.

Also loved the light blue. If I had known I would have worn my light blue jersey and hat (which I wore Thursday night). Why didn't they tell anybody?

That one shot, where Kalu changed the shot at the rim in mid air was a wow moment.

Agree Carver had some great dunks last night and he's like a windshield wiper clearing the glass.

Curry was getting doubled every time he had the ball and still found his game.

It must be tough and tiresome, wanting the team to lose every game, so you can say "Fire JJ, fire Wood" and "I told you so", for the thousandth time.

At the half Curry had 2 and AJ was sitting on zip and we were still in a good position. I thought that was a good sign.
