They are playing for their NCAA tournament lives. Every game from here on out is a must win for them. Their SOS sucks and outside of the SEC they don't have a win to boast about.
State isn't a particularly good shooting team, they don't rebound as well as they should, but they'll chuck up a bunch of 3s and hope it works. They have a balanced scoring attack.
- 43.2% FG
- 36% 3pt FG
- 68.4% FT
- +3.7 rebound margin
- 8 blocks a game
Prediction: I've given up on this team winning on the road so maybe by typing that it conjures up some reverse psychology and we pull the upset. I doubt it... if Thompkins can pull 17 boards on us, expect Vanardo to dominate inside against our Charmin soft big men. They won't blow us out, but they'll win... by 13.
Game time is 9PM EST (8PM CST) on CSS.
