    Re: Last Big Win?

    Depends on how you define it.

    After the Ohio State game there was (yet again) a feeling that we'd finally turned the corner.

    Then we followed it up with MISERABLE performances against Memphis and Ole Miss.

    We did beat FCGU but they weren't to the level of their Cinderella year. However, they're probably the last recognizable opponent we beat.

    Middle and UAB the same year we beat O-HI-O State - both finished above the Buckeyes in the RPI - all sub 90 RPI wins...

    Where FGC finished like 196

    UTA was also pretty salty that year finishing with an RPI around 107

    I'm thinking tournament (NIT or NCAA) I understand that basketball purists see mid season wins against the big boys as significant, but RPI means very little to nothing in one bid leagues and C-USA has solidified itself as a one bid league.

    Winning at Texas A&M in the NIT was a big deal IMO.

    Road wins at OU and Ohio St were the other two biggies.

    Lots of talk about the NIT (aTm, UGA, go back to Vandy at home, when Tiger Meeking threw down one of the all-time most thunderous dunks in TAC history!), but, ahem, the NCAAs? Some of our BBBers weren't even born the last time we were in the NCAAs.

    Yea. Beating SEC teams in the NIT is cool, but not program defining.

    Re: Last Big Win?

    Biggest win this year? Beating Evansville to win Cancun Challenge.

    Biggest win last year? Eliminating UAB from C-UAB Tournament.

    Cartel wins of White-Konkol era:
    2013: Florida State (NIT)
    2013: Oklahoma
    2014: Georgia (NIT)
    2015: Texas A&M (NIT)
    2015: Ohio State

    Oklahoma (KenPom #30) was the best team we've defeated in that era.

    Best home game? Iona (NIT)

    Re: Last Big Win?

    To me, there's only been a couple of legitimate "big" wins in the White/Konkol era: when we beat a very good OU team at their place and when we beat Tisdale's USM rentateam in El Paso. We've had a number of good wins (St Bonaventure, UAB, ODU) and or fun wins (Ohio State, Georgia, A&M, Iona) but those games were most meaningful to me.
    Have you considered those Dogs?

    Coming back to beat Florida State in the 1st round of the NIT in 2013 was a pretty big deal too.

    Why do y'all call it the White-Konkol era ?? Every one of those wins was during the White era, except for the Ohio State game which was won by MW's former players very early on in the Konkol era before the MW Magic wore off. Lots of difference between the White era and the Konkol era.

    It was posted in one of these threads that one of the points was to see what everyone thought constituted a big win in the first place.

    Did this win signal that "we have arrived!" "we're here to stay and we can hang with the big boys!"

    More than that, was it a fluke? A one-time thing? A big name sure, but again, the NIT.

    Using that standard, why even bother to ask? Until this team makes it to the NCAA Tourney, the point is moot.
