    UAB beat Millsap 103-29...and the game was not that close.

    We are 7-2. Bama edged #14 Houston and NC State lost in OT to #1 ranked Purdue. We will be 8-2 heading into our next quality opponent, LSU (Santa Clara is "good" at 7-4 and some good wins). We were never in the Bama game, and then played fairly well at NC State.

    LSU is very good. They are "long" with athletic, talented players who can all make plays. They are the #1 defensive team in the nation too. This is a huge test. Without Crawford we lack a "big" with some length who could have battled in the paint with all those tiggers, who are built like him. Someone else with size will have to step up, Hunter, I guess. To have a chance our guards are gonna have to play "out of their minds!" Like, we need to hit something like 20/25 three-point shots, shoot 100% from the FT line, protect the ball (LSU forces a ton of turnovers), and help Lofton by battling for rebounds and every loose ball.

    LSU lacks overall team discipline. They play more like an all-star team or a bunch of very talented guys who got together one Saturday at the local Y and play a pick-up game. This will be a test/opportunity for Konkol to actually out-coach someone and make a difference.

    lsu gets in the heads of all our teams. For once (in recent times), I would LOVE to beat them and ESPECIALLY in Bossier!!!!!

    Well, LSU-BR hasn’t exactly been playing all top tier teams. Nicholls was an exhibition game, but they have played ULM, Texas State, Liberty, McNeese, and Belmont. They are playing Northwestern State tomorrow night and will be playing Lipscomb after they play us. They eked out a win over Penn State in OT.

    If Tech is hitting on all cylinders and LSU comes in overconfident and plays undisciplined – well, you just never know.

    I like your enthusiasm bur we'll see. Santa Clara is by far the best of our wins at #92 KenPom.

    lsu is #13. Alabama, who handed us a 30 point loss, is #11.

    Good grief. This has GOT to be mental.

    ULM lost to LSU 101-39? SERIOUSLY? That's preposterous. And no one else has stayed within 14 points of LSU this season except Penn St, which was an OT win for the Tigers?

    Ahem.....this kind of stuff exasperates me. How 'bout just growing a spine and playing good basketball. They are not the Harlem Globetrotters to everyone else's Washington Generals.

    Well yanno, upsets do happen. Tech blew out SWAC Texas Southern by 27 points. Less than a week later, Texas Southern beat #20 SEC Florida by 15 points. Being of sound mind, I stand by what I said "If Tech is hitting on all cylinders and LSU comes in overconfident and plays undisciplined – well, you just never know." Other than Penn State, LSU has not been seriously challenged this year because they haven't played any of the top tier teams yet. LSU may blow Tech away, but Tech will be one of the better teams they have played so far this season. If Tech plays like they did against Alabama, they will get clobbered by LSU.

    I agree... This game not only has to be played perfectly and coached perfectly, but this one is a LOT about mindset. We can win this one, but HAVE to be ready and not play like we did at Alabama (we looked like we were going there to just have a game - not to knock them off).

    Re: Bulldogs Add Home Game for Tuesday

    Yeah, the Dawgs can beat LSU.

    The challenge is the matchups. Like Bama, LSU has all those "long" guys, 6'6" to 6'10" who can handle the ball and create their own shots. They are also very active on defense using their length to create turnovers.

    Our guards are gonna have to play their best games, ever. Lofton will be on an island battling all those bigs, coming at him in waves, and I expect Junior to hold his own. But his 18-20 pts he will score won't nearly be enough to even keep us in this. And Heaven helps us if he gets into foul trouble like he did vs. the Zebras, er, Cajuns. Crawford could have been a big help with his 6'7" frame...LSU starts a couple of 6'2" guards, but it's those others coming off the bench, the taller guys, with fresh legs and energy that have taken LSU on spurts, like 14-0 runs and how they rallied from 15 pts down to cruising past Georgia Tech by double-digits.

    All the X's and O's analysis aside, LSU can be beat. They haven't shown much in the way of discipline and playing as a team. It's more like 40 minutes of chaos where their athleticism has allowed them to beat down the opposition. I am more concerned about how we play. I want to see solid, good team basketball played, our guys making good decisions...Konkol actually coaching! which I saw flashes of in the ULL game. He used a couple of timeouts and made a lineup change that helped turn the momentum of that game. Well done, coach. Our guards, namely Williams and Archibald, have got to keep their heads, have short memories. The long LSU team will make plays on defense. Our guards can't get frustrated and then start forcing the game. If there is a turnover, learn from it, but then "forget it" as in don't let it make you hesitate next time. Just like a shooter who has missed several shots in a row...the next one is going in!

    Go Dawgs!
