Who said anything about ODU having great post play this season (or last)? Lots of ways to win or lose games and ODU's inability to shoot from outside certainly contributed to today's loss. To expect them to do differently in that regard this season overall seems like a fantasy.

All I was saying earlier is that if a team (ODU) can't make 3 point shots with enough regularity such as we witnessed yet again today, then they better recognize that and at least go for a higher percentage shot closer to the basket (Trice & Ezikpe). Had they not at least figured that out about half way into the 1st half they likely would have been down 20+ at the half.

Even at that, ODU's post play is subpar, primarily do to the size they routinely give up to the opposition. Today the Rice post player got several rebounds simply because he was taller and consequently had a longer/higher reach. I don't think that will be any different tomorrow afternoon either. Jeff acts and says that they need to be tougher or play harder in his post game comments. That's all well and good, but it still doesn't make up for the size difference right at the goal, and the other guy is trying to win too.

I agree 100%. Unfortunately, I don't see Jeff changing from this style of play even though his teams are slowly moving backwards as the years go by.

I actually think Trice/Ezipke is a decent front court. Just not deep.

Decent, but undersized. They would be role players on good ODU teams.

RE: Rice weekend
we aren't the only average CUSA team, Charlotte (at home) was down 24-1 to UAB in the first 10 minutes, score 37 for the game; UTEP goes for a whopping 33 at UNT; MTSU loses at USM by 30, USM suited up their mascot at SF

RE: Rice weekend
We are favored as of this morning by 2.5.

I guess Vegas figures that Rice cannot play that hot, and we cannot play that lethargic, for two games straight.

I thought this series would go like the FIU series. Hot 3-point shooting teams are gonna have a hard time doing that on back to back days. Thats what I tell myself anyway.

RE: Rice weekend
The 1-3-1 seems to work best against their 3 point shooting. We just seem to have a problem boxing out and rebounding out of it. Do a better job at rebounding and we might have something going.

Maybe try a box and one on Eavy?

The man-to-man has forced two TOs. Maybe that is what will work today.

Program needs to start over. We do not need to hire Bryant Stith as the next coach. Watching this team completely falls on the entire coaching staff, and they need to go. It’s time for a change, and it is crystal clear for all of us to see.

This seems to me to be an odd statement to make in the middle of a game we are leading.
