Nick King is a helluva player. But he's not Reggie Upshaw. I think we finally manage to outlast you guys in a bruising game.

Welcome to Norfolk, Empty Sue.

Welcome to Norfolk, Empty Sue.

He's got a different skill set for sure but every bit as good and dangerous. He's not so good though to replace both Upshaw and Jacorey Williams.

You know we do have a center too right. Brandon Walters is a completely different player this year... last two games he has averaged 11.5 pts and 13 rebs. Very big body inside and very strong. Not as versatile as Upshaw and Williams but we have a little bit of a different look this year when it comes to post play.

We have one too! Porter isn't too shabby himself. Itll be a good game.

Yes, but there is one big difference in how the two teams got to those similar numbers.

SOS/NC SOS

MT: 53/4
ODU: 275/259

Will that matter? We shall find out.

Yes, big difference between opponets.

MT's Opponets
Florida Gulf Coast (x2) Murray State, Ole Miss, Belmont, Tennesse State, Vanderbilt, Princeton, USC, Miami, and Auburn.

ODU's Opponents

Towson, James Madison. Temple, Dayton, Indiana State, Bowling Green, Maryland Eastern Shore, Richmond, Fairfiled, VCU, William and Mary and Norflok State.

MT has played on the road in some tough environments several times already this year and won. In fact MT has the most true road wins in the country. We should win this game. The difference is that MT's offense is better than ODU's. I would say our defense is probably slightly better too. Lastly, its ODU. We are their Kryptonite.

You forgot Trevecca Nazarene.

That's one opponent we certainly cannot match.

I'll give yall offense. I definitely think our defense is better overall. But I could be wrong. That's why we play the game.

Yeah, cause that one opponent makes the rest of our schedule garbage01-wingedeagle

What you can't match is our OOC strength of schedule.

It was a good schedule but with a total of 1 top 100 win coming out of it. 259 to 4 and we both still likely need to win in Frisco to go dancing. So....congrats on your scheduling.

That's our conference's fault. Most teams get the majority of their good wins from conference play. Look at Louisville and their top 20 RPI. Zero top 100 wins in the non-conference, but they already have four total because of the conference schedule. Cincinnati has seven but four of those from the conference schedule. Or Houston. Two top 100 in non-conf, but already has two more in conference play.

So, thanks for being the top 100. We'll add one more after Thursday.

By the way, by the time the season is over there is a chance that every single one of our non-conference opponents will be in the top 100 sans Tenn St. Princeton can do it if they win out.
