MI Hall of Famer
- Nov 12, 2019
I rather win the tournament than the regular season.
Didn't Charlotte beat W. Kentucky and lose the other one by like 3 points?WKU is the real deal and can beat Kansas. The top 3? I doubt it.
However, this is why CUSA is a one bid jamboree: That 49ers team UTEP whooped up on this weekend beat both WKU & UAB. UTEP showed moxy against Arizona and beat ASU at home and even out rebounded them by 20 but drops one to Rice and a way worse than 49ers team USM.
My point is CUSA is that crazy person you date early in your life that burns your possessions but then takes you to a 4 star restaurant and wants to marry you. You never ever know what you will get?
UTEP men's Bball has the horses now that Efe is back and looks in good form but which UTEP team will show up against Kansas?
If we do meet up with LaTech again, I’d say play him rough with Efe and Verhoeven. A few hard fouls might go a long way. 10 to give with those two guys. Lofton only shoots like 58% from the stripe.The La Tech Lofton debate was brought up in the post game show yesterday and I agreed with the show commentators that IF UTEP does get a match up with Lofton, UTEP does have Efe to match up since he does have way better upper body strength as compared to Williams and Verhoven.
Agree. What Efe provides defensively are 5 additional fouls to give, and avoid having Williams trying to defend Lofton and pick up fouls. Neither Williams or Verhoeven were able to handle Lofton one on one, and I consider both far better defenders than Efe.If we do meet up with LaTech again, I’d say play him rough with Efe and Verhoeven. A few hard fouls might go a long way. 10 to give with those two guys. Lofton only shoots like 58% from the stripe.
That’s for sure. If we’ve learned anything about this team, it’s that there are no guarantees. We gotta get by FAU before Lofton is even a thought.This is great analysis but I don't wanna overlook fau. We already duck them once. No guarantees we would have split non the less sweep.
Yep. CRT switched Verhoven to him in last match-up and he actually frustrated him and a couple of times Lofton threw an actual tantrum, I kind of chuckled.If we do meet up with LaTech again, I’d say play him rough with Efe and Verhoeven.

We can play pretty good perimeter D, but our interior D and defensive rebounding is no good against decent interior teams. That will be the death of this team (if not a poor shooting game 1st).The Miners have the talent to win the Conference USA tournament if they play defense and hold on to the ball. They also have the ability to lose in the first round. They have been mediocre, pretty darn good and down right awful this year. So I don't know what they'll do come next week's Tournament.
Well, Onyema had a bad turnover in the last game. It was garbage time and the bench was emptied, so it's tough to say how typical that was, but maybe he doesn't quite click with the offense? And how well does he defend right now? (Of course, playing him in games would give him experience, but that should have happened earlier in the season, not now.)Again!!!!! The question to His Highness Terry, "Why don't you ever play Onyema during critical minutes?". Everything to gain nothing to lose.
Another reason to play Onyema
Yeah but did you see what happened when Gonzaga played Virginia, Auburn, W Virginia, Iowa, and Kansas this year ? They were levels above them. It’s not close. They are the best team by farYeah. But the country has to been watching the Zags to pull it off it off since early 90's and they don't. Baylor last few years as well but they bounce early.
Buy who knows?
