RE: North Texas game thread
Welp folks, another losing season is in the loser almanac for the loser Losearchs of Old Loseminion. After their pre-loss to vastly superior and blessed-by-God North Texas, the inept, way-too-short Monarchs finish the year 3-12-8* — three worthwhile wins, 12 wins that don’t deserve to be counted and eight losses that unblinkingly demonstrate their utter worthlessness.

(* — if somehow ODU is allowed to win tonight, that will demote North Texas from unbeatable monsters to poor-quality opponent that doesn’t prove anything positive about the Monarchs).

Join us at Chartway Arena in November when, after a typically poor offseason with barely-sentient scrubs for recruits that won’t be good until they leave the program and we wish we were worthy of them, the Monarchs take to the court for another year filled with humiliating defeats, so-called “wins” that can safely be ignored and the occasional honest-to-goodness victory that we shouldn’t read much into because the team that ODU beat a team that beat a team that beat ODU and therefore all of those teams are far better than ODU.

So for all of us at Monarch’s Den, this is cyniclone saying The dress is in the bag and the bag is sealed tight and there was a baby in the bag and now the baby is dead and it’s all Jeff Jones’s fault. Good night!

With two 6'-10" post players that play regularly they also have a bit of a size advantage down low. They go 7 - 8 deep and pulled away from MTSU in the second half to win by a lot so fatigue shouldn't be that much of a problem for them in today's game.

Will have to stay in front of them to keep them from driving inside, especially Hamlet. He's also good at hitting foul shots so that's another reason to keep him from driving where he is more apt to get fouled.

ODU will need a similar defensive effort to what they had against WKU, avoid foul trouble, keep their turnovers low, and make a decent percentage of their shots to advance to play again tomorrow. It would help a lot if Green and Oliver are having one of their good shooting games today. We're pretty tough to beat when we have more than just one or two scoring threats on the floor at the same time, and especially so when we are shooting threes better than we usually do.


Only 6 players got more than 5 minutes in last nights game, on the conference board on their fans posted that Freshman guard Rubin Jones who was the first off the bench was on crutches after the UAB game and did not play last night. 4 of their starters played over 30 minutes. Their bench hasn't done much for them the last few games.

I'm feeling good about tonight's game. We've been playing well, I think Curry is going to take it personally. He and Hamlett were rivals at their Juco colleges in FL and Hamlett took our lunch last year. Play tough defense, stay out of foul trouble and get the win.
If you are suggesting they will be fatigued from playing 30 minutes, I don't think it will be a factor. Every team has been playing back to back games all season with little fatigue. It could be a factor if they get to the finals but I don't think so for tonight. I'm more concerned that they have a game under their belt shooting at those rims in that cavern and we don't. And that they will have many more fans there than we will have.

It could definitely be a factor in the second half if the same players are getting the same minutes. We play pretty physically, most of the games I've watched you could tell a difference late in the Sat game.

This is where I'm at with it. Hound them all game, play very physically, make'em work for it and the 6 man rotation starts to look realllllly thin. As long as we're not put too far in the hole this is a game that will be decided in the last 4 minutes.

I'm going to take a longshot and say that you've had your fill of internet logic.

But +2 for the effort. I enjoyed reading that.

The baby is a metaphor of misplaced hopes and dreams. Don't feel bad, we are all babies in the bag, and the bag is the lions den. Damn I'm still looking for that hit from the guy who said JJ is COY, please pass it.

Some posters on here when the basketball team wins and some monarch fans feel slightly encouraged by it.

Actually works best for me. 930 would be best but I can handle 10. I'm a night owl anyway. Now I don't have to neglect the family during bedtime routines and they'll all be asleep. Have a bourbon and a brownie in peace and watch the game. :)

I’m with you and I find it annoying. I’m going to be exhausted at work tomorrow. And pissed I stayed up to midnight if we lose. And will not be able to sleep if we win. Damn.

Unless on another channel, no we won’t. 9:30 is the la la tech game. Ours is at 10 and not on TV. Remember that stupid CUSA format: 2 games at once separated by a curtain.
