I know you could say this about any game we've played this year, but we will need to shoot lights out to win this game IMO.
I think we need to hit close to 15 3's to win because our defense won't be able to hold them down. They are just too athletic all over the floor and have too many weapons. So unless they are cold as ice, I think we need to hit a ton of our 3's.
As in all games this year, if we shoot poorly we lose. Live and die by the 3. I don't see that changing.
Can someone really DIE by the three when hitting 11 in a game and over 33 percent? (Saturday)
You need to worry less about Smart and more about Nash. In the last 5 games, he is averaging 18.8 points per game, and he always scores well against you guys.
Also, all of you predicting scores anywhere from 78 to in the 90s are smoking crack. Unless you're shooting above 50% from behind the arc, you're likely to score in the mid to high 60s at best. Our opponents average 61.2 points per game.
As for it being Senior Night, I'm sure your guys will be amped up. But so will we. We want the #2 seed and because of the closeness of the previous game between the two programs, our guys will be spitting nails. We have to win both of our games to avoid Baylor in the first round. We'd much rather have WVU.
I don't like to make predictions, but I will say you are probably about a 1 or 2 point favorite, which means, anyone can win.
