When is the last time.....

Post by ThunderAggie » December 21st, 2019, 2:47 pm

We beat 2 teams from a power 5 conference that had both advanced past the first round in the NCAA tourney the previous season and were picked preseason top 3 in their conference.

Well...now we have with wins against LSU and Florida.

Lets Go!!!! :rock:

Huge win! 12 and 2 is a damn good record with the schedule we have had. Ya the first 5 games weren’t anyone spectacular but every game since lsu has been a quality opponent.

I would have taken wins over LSU and FLorida over St Marys and YBU any day as much as it hurts to lose to YBU.

Yep, P5 opponents with hats in the mall. Love it!

Defense was phenomenal. There is a reason they started the game 0 for 10 and that continued all game. Credit to our guards for stopping penetration.

Today was MASSIVE. There's a good chance we'll have both teams ranked when San Diego State comes to town in a couple of weeks!

Just curious....are wins against Florida and LSU better than SDSU wins against Iowa and Creighton/BYU.

Well, not sure what the index and metrics say, but I’d prefer our wins.

You want big wins against big-name teams. We all know the hats in the mall theory. It is a joke, but it matters.

NET has Iowa at 28, Creighton at 37, LSU at 52, Florida at 61. At the end of the year those rankings we'll be radically different but right now, SDSU's wins look a bit better from that standpoint.

Was impressed with Dorius today. Thought he played well considering he is a freshman, I’m excited to see him with a year or two under his belt!

Agree. Dorius was assertive and altered some shots

Iowa and Creighton will be Q2 wins at seasons end. BYU will Miley be Q1 as I expect they get one against St Mary’s. LSU and Florida I think will also both be Q1 by seasons end. Florida is young and is starting to hit their stride. Blackshear is a beast. Also, name recognition goes a long way even without the numbers backing it.

I know it’s frowned upon to say nice things about Miller, but he nailed two HUGE threes.

I think we played our best today when Dorius was in. I love how athletic Dorius is. He’s raw, but moves well for his size and in my mind has a pretty high ceiling.

I think our post is in very good hands the next few years with Bean, Dorius, Kuba, and Nigel John. We need some guards for next year though.

Also Brito had a BIG bounceback game!

Stats vs USF
0 pts, 0 assists, 1 rebound
Stats vs Florida
11 pts, 5 assists, 5 rebounds

Plus he hit game sealing free throws!

He did hit 2 huge ones, but he is still only shooting 31%, easily the lowest of his career (which wasn't that great last year either). That's not great for a 3 pt specialist. We're going to need him to be better.

It’ll be interesting if Kuba is inserted ahead of Dorius once he comes back.

Regarding SDSU’s wins, Iowa will likely drop and get beat up in the Big10 because their star point guard (Bohannon) just hung up his shoes for the rest of the season and elected to have hip surgery and seek a medical redshirt so he can come back healthy for a 5th season.

Miller and mostly Brito stepped up. I thought the offensive rebounds accompanied by guaranteed trips to the line we’re going to kill us. Defense won this game but we had players step up at the end and knock down shots.

Some tough calls - glad our players don’t get as mad as me about them! Tough team!

I could be wrong but I thought there was a time in the game when coach smith asked Kuba if he was ok to enter the game. Kuba nodded no. Not sure if that was the dialogue though.

I saw that too and thought the same thing!!! It was kind of weird and Kuba nodded no and then looked away kind of sad. It was like middle of 1st half I think. Hopefully that is not what the dialogue was.

I thought he might have been looking for Queta, but also Kuba makes sense. Coach looked upset with the answer no matter what the question was.
