I just thought of something. Norfolk State mascot is the Spartans. Isn't that cultural appropriation?

I think it would be difficult to argue they were oppressed in some way.

Or that they exist now. Someone might claim something on their behalf but there's no Spartans in 2021, except on a handful of college campuses.

There's still a town called Sparta in the same place as the ancient city state so technically there are Spartans. If your going to use a Grecian location to co op for a college mascot however, I'd choose Lesbos.

NSU clearly looks like the better team tonight.

Who isn’t thoroughly enjoying this? Will App State’s coach be able to make the necessary adjustments?

App state couldn’t beat their way out of a wet paper bag right now.

If they start hitting their shots better, and it'd be hard to do worse than 6-for-31 overall and 0-for-18 from 3, they can absolutely make this a game again.

Smothering defense from NSU. App is going to have a tough time figuring out how to break it. They’re going to need to make at least 10 3’s in the 2nd half.

Agreed - I wonder whether App’s coach will keep shooting the 3 or demand his players attack the rim. I expect the latter and limit 3s at least for the first five mins of the game.

Well they definitely kept shooting 3s. Big reason they're back in the game now.

Not sure NSU is playing good defense or App State just off.

But App is coming on and will probably win this game. Come on Spartans!

NSU playing too much one on one ball this half. App state defense has ramped up.

The upside is we don’t have to listen to NSU’s coach run his mouth.
