Crazy.[/QUOTE] Men’s Hoops 2007-08 Season Preview: Bears coming of age with roster full of veterans

From what I’ve seen of them here, they are big and very athletic but I still totally thought Notre Dame would beat them.

Maybe the Valpo magic has finally caught back up with Scott Drew in Waco.

Jim, are the fans from Wichita down on Gregg Marshall or do they accept that they are reloading?

Maryland is gonna get beatdown tonight. They havent looked good so far at all.

Wichita State was picked 6th in the Valley after losing 4 of its top 5 scorers from last season. MVC first team preseason pick PJ Couisnard has gotten off to a slow start and only scored 4 points against Monmouth – all on FTs! Given time, Marshall will have the Shockers in the upper tier of the Valley on an annual basis.

if we play Warren Wilson, i bet you anything its up in the air at halftime.

I bet their unathleticism forces them into a zone, and we can only do one thing to beat that.

After watching Wake play last night, I still feel good about our chances against them. Central played zone all night and they never figured it out. Passed the ball around the perimeter all night long, and waited for Ish Smith to try and penetrate. They shot terrible from the field and FT line, sounds familar…

I don’t know ID. I think the 49ers win against their 7. :biggrin: Everyone for the Panthers logged at least 11 minutes of PT.

[QUOTE][B]HPU men wallop Warren Wilson

HIGH POINT – By showing up 30 minutes before tip-off, Warren Wilson Col*lege had limited time to get loose on Monday night.

Three hours of stretching and shooting would not have mattered.

The undersized and overwhelmed Fighting Owls were obliterated in High Point’s home opener, falling behind 55-10 at half*time on the way to a 93-23 whipping.

HPU guard Mike Jefferson led a balanced attack with 15 points and eight assists. Forward Arizona Reid roamed for 14 points and 10 rebounds in 19 minutes, while freshman Ibrahim Appiah contributed 13 points and six rebounds.

“We needed this,” Reid said about High Point’s first game since splitting two contests in Seattle almost a week ago. “This was a good time to work on some things.”

Guard Eugene Harris added 11 points and reserves Matt Boswell (10 points, eight rebounds), Earnest Bridges (six points, six rebounds) and Kyle Witek (six points) played well in extended minutes.

Witek kept the Millis Center crowd of 1,071 interested with less than three minutes remaining by making a 3-point*er that was intended to be an alley-oop pass.

“I’ll take the basket,” Witek said with a smile.

Asheville-based Warren Wilson (5-6) had a seven-man roster and no players taller than 6-foot-6. The Owls fell behind 10-0, shot 14 percent from the field and were outscored 62-6 during one stretch.

The game marked the most lopsided margin of victory and fewest points allowed in coach Bart Lundy’s five seasons. “Anybody in their back yard can make open shots, but we didn’t give them any,” said Lundy.

The Panthers (2-2) won their 14th straight nonconference home game. They also improved to 9-0 in home openers since going Division I.

Josh Lamons, a key reserve forward, recently had his knee drained and sat out for precautionary reasons. HPU faces a much tougher opponent a week from today at Gardner-Webb, which made national headlines 11 days ago by beating Kentucky.[/QUOTE]

Maryland 59

I would just like to take a minute and refocus some of my Niner loss anger on some unsuspecting posters:

To the two or three of you morons who were talking about how “Maryland sucks” because they got “punked” in this game, would you please turn in your tickets and merchandise and stop affiliating with the program? UCLA is a disgustingly good team. They are loaded with blue chip talent, they play defense, and they execute a real offense. They are the best team in the nation. If we played the Bruins, they would honestly beat us by at least 50.

Making statements about how bad Maryland is because they lost to this juggernaut is embarassing. Please, please do not do this again where someone may see it.
