Re: New Mexico

The Lobos play really hard and come after you the whole game..They play a jillion guys..They don't shoot well.. The little gym in Lubbock may be a challenge for jump shooters early in the first game because the depth perception is different than you get in a major arena. What NM tired against NV was...

Re: Guess who's on top of the MWC standings

The regular season is fairly meaningless due to the conference tourney. The good teams will mostly beat up on each other with the bottom 4 mostly playing out the string.. All you really need is a top 5 finish so that you get a bye in the tourney. If you are playing well at that point anything can ha...

Re: Nevada got a new player

He was really highly regarded coming out of high school. Top 40 player..Very high major offers.. Alford recruited him to UCLA.

He didn't play much as a frosh with Texas but he did flash a lot of promise..

Alford is starting to get some interesting guys..

Re: Back to back games.

NV had been at close to 36 percent from 3 before tonight..It was a horrible night of missing wide open 3's, clanking free throws and turnovers..I had to wash my eyes out with Clorox after watching it.

Re: Scouting the MW?

One game does not a season make..Everybody has an off night from time to time..USF is by far the very best team NV has played this season and it wasn't even close..I am not sure the Pack will play anybody tougher this season. But sometimes it just comes down to match ups in a given game..However, it...

Re: Scouting the MW?

They don't have to do much..They are the fifth best team in the WCC..If you want to believe that the WCC is not better than the MW, I can' stop you..But they have been rated higher for years..This is also, the worst the MW has been in years..

Maybe, next year will be better..

USF is really really good..It is just a better and deeper conference, period..However, it doesn't have to stay that way.. I think the MW is at a crossroad..They can bounce back or regress further..It isn't about the size of the arena..It is about recruiting, coaching and easy travel. Almost every sc...

Re: Scouting the MW?

It is really tough to tell because some schools have only played a couple of games...From what I have seen you match up well with your 5 starters. I do think you need to get more production off your bench to be a top contender. If you can you should be fine. I still think SDSU is a really complete u...

Re: MW Power Rankings for next year (long)

Nevada has really surprised me this year. I watched a little of the UNLV/Alabama game the other night on TV. UNLV has some athletes but, as is usually the case with that team, they don't have high BBIQs and made some dumb mistakes and too ill-advised shots down the stretch and let Alabama pull away...

Re: MW Scoreboard

I watched your game. One thing that bodes well for you is your young guards were not afraid and the moment wasn't too big. They are freshmen so they will have their ups and downs but confidence is a good thing.

That was supposed to be Nevada's first opponent.
Is Nevada still going to nebraska? Looks like that tournament has fallen apart.
Who knows? I think they may still play Nebraska.
