It’s hard to have a color out when the stadium is half empty.

I don’t care if you wear a purple tutu if we have 7k people there

well, the seats are green, so we’ve got that going for us

This W+W previewer likes UTEP. And as usual, in serious need of a proofreader:

Per ESPN BPI predictor, Niners have an 80.1 % chance of winning. Home team a 4 1/2 point favorite.

A win tonight would give us a 2 game lead over 6th place FAU with 3 games to go before pod play begins. At this point, I believe ODU could be the only team to knock us out, since they’re the only one within striking distance of pod 1 that may have the tiebreaker over us.

We have split head to head with ODU, so what is the next tiebreaker? Record against common opponents? Because we’ve played the exact same conference schedule.

Going to attempt to make this game. A win tonight would be huge, I didn’t bring any green with me so I’ll be in red. Oops.

Need a win tonight to stay in Pod 1. Confident we will get it.

Are the women’s team cheerleaders doing this game? They don’t look like the usual crew.

A green out and both players and cheerleaders wear white?

Not sure how in the hell we are only down 5 at the half. That was arguably one of the best shooting displays by a visiting team in a decade. Jump shots, deep 3’s, jump hooks… Most all VERY contested…nearly every one going in. They literally only seemed to miss the open ones… Which were few. Unreal.

We could be wearing chartreuse for all i care. That’s the least of my concerns at the half!
