SMC today

Post by BroncoBot » Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:36 am

Any predictions? I'm going to say BYU wins this one. It seems with Haws clicking a little better, Bryant and Yeoli doing their thing, HArdnett playing well, Dastrup and Worthington learning their roles, this team has a great shot at beating SMC tonight. BYU by 5.

No clue but it's big. A win would put us on the tournament bubble.

Our next four games make our season. We could easily go 1-3 over these next 4 games. If we go 2-2 the NIT is our ceiling. If we go 4-0 we can start thinking about an at large NCAA bid. It's crazy that we have a better record in Spokane than we do in Moraga. But based on history this is our toughest game of the year. We can win, but I'm thinking our chances of winning are less than 25%

A win here makes up for the loss at home.

We didn't have Nixon last time and Haws wasn't playing as well. I think we have a shot, but beating them at their place will still be hard.

I think at least to a point, the more Worthington and Dastrup play the better chance we have of beating them.

SMC, especially at Moraga is our kryptonite.

We can certainly win this game. We were a few free throws and a botched overtime away from beating them. I think our chances are better than in the past.

We win by 3.

BYU will have to play its best game of the year to win this one. All of that talent mentioned above will have to play well and we will have to put in a really good defensive effort as well. It can be done but unfortunately we have never seen a BYU team rise to the occasion since the Jimmer SR year and probably won't again tonight. I will be watching and cheering them on though.
