They are 5-2 coming off a heartbreaking loss at home to mighty McNeese St. Probably not good for us as I bet the players are in for extra work in the days leading up to Wednesday.
Jay Crockett, Josh Grey, and
Dejan Kravic come in averaging double digits in scoring. Kravic is shooting at a .583 clip and Crockett is at .641 mostly inside so they could cause some issues for us. Thankfully they are AUful from 3, but decent inside the arc.
- .469 FG
- .283 3pt FG
- +4.6 rebounds
- 80.3 PPG
Keys to the game:
- don't get behind early... which we've seemed to do the last 4 games
- get Releford going... either with dribble penetration or spot up 3s
- minimize the offensive rebounds. Gueye and Jacobs need to block out folks
- keep Lacey interested. When he's not in the flow of the game he kinda acts like a zombie out there
Game is 8PM EST on 12/19 on ESPN3. this one is a must win game for us... 4 losses in a pitiful non-conference slate coupled with a weaker than normal SEC could kill our tournament chances real quick.
