Remember our one big blowout win in conference? It was against these guys in $tarkville. They might even suck more since the last time we played them. $tate comes into the game tomorrow losers of 10 straight (we started their losing streak). Only 2 of their SEC losses have been within 10 points. Looks like $tan$bury took all the ca$h with him.
$tate is 7-17 overall, 2-10 in conference. Craig Sword and Fred Thomas lead their potent scoring attack at 10.2 and 10.0 PPG. Neither is hitting 40% from the field. Gavin Ware leads in rebounds while Jalen Steele and Tyson Cunningham (averaging 2.4 PPG) are the only ones hitting above 30% from beyond the arc. This is a really bad team people... seriously could be the worst we face this season. They really are good at nothing on the court. If I see any fretting in comments about this game before tip-off I'm putting you on a 24hr banned list (g).
Mi$$ $t game notes if you are interested.
- .406 FG
- .278 3pt FG
- -3.3 rebound margin
- 60.7 PPG
We should beat their brains in like we did in $tarkville. Heck, DJC might come off the bench and hit a couple 3s just to rub it in on our hated rival on US 82.
Game time is 8PM EST Wednesday on the SEC Network. I haven't seen a WatchESPN.com confirmation as of yet.
A really quick blurb about the state of our women's basketball program... I could coach them to 3 SEC wins for about 1/2 the price of what Wendell Hudson is making. Heck, I'd HAHR DJC, MSmilie, my 7 YO, and some random readers, save the University serious jack and still get what we are seeing out there. I admit I have ZERO interest in women's basketball, but being as AUful as we are for the money being spent (300K/yr) is maddening. What's Rick Moody up to these days?
Excuse the typos... I'll recheck this evening and correct them as I see them.
