Ladies and Gentlemen,
I would like to know which of you are not taking our first game (i.e. second round) seriously. I'm seeing way too much early chatter about a UNC matchup. I think even Sean is looking ahead to Newark, or at least to Sunday, and I just want to say that our team had better not. Anyone remember Vermont? Navy? Richmond?
Indiana State is not a great team. But they have some things going for them that can easily be the downfall of any unfocused or unlucky squad:
- Better 3-point shooting (do we have anyone hitting 48%?)
- Deeper bench
- Ego-free team play
- Nothing to lose
- Hot streak
In case you've forgotten, please look up what happened to #1 Kansas in Round 2 against last year's MVC champs. Let's hope our guys are preparing for a war, because these scrappy Hoosiers are going to leave it all on the court. Understood?
