Super quick M$U stats pack II

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.

Season stats

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.

Stats:
- 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.

Yet more proof that we have the right coach and the right system, just insufficient talent.

Our big men are weak going up against other teams in the paint. We could have so many more points here. The ball IS being rotated into the inside but the big men can't convert most of the time. Good fight tonight until those long range 3 pointers at the end...
