On the Rome show I just heard a "war" for North Dakota basketball v Iowa State tomorrow.
Even though this team is only D-2, i'm worried because they play almost all guards in a very weird offense (nothing but back cuts). I'm hoping our guys can adjust to something so different than what they're used to!
No prob...what I say is true. It's a catch 22. You want games you know you'll win so you can build confidence and (or) build up on the win total. The problem with wins over lousy d1 teams is that they don't help (and can hurt) your rpi...the problem with scheduling a lot of d2 opponents that don't hurt your rpi or strength of schedule is that the wins don't count in the criteria the selection committe uses.
last D2 school i remember playing was morningside and they almost beat us because all they did was shoot threes and make them it would be scary if this is the same type of team
do div 2 games count in our record?
is this simply an exhibition game?
I Was kinda worried until i checked out there schedule and seen they've beatin nobodies and then realized that there head coach was an assitant underneath Alford for 5 years @ Iowa so he has retained Coaching knowledge from Steve Alford awesome
