ULM: "Dazed and Confused"

Pre-season hype that might as well be fire kindling now:

Expectations are high in Monroe coming off an impressive season last year.  Picked to win the Sun Belt West Division in the preseason, Louisiana-Monroe is already off to a quick start defeating Iowa and Rice earlier in the year.”

Uh, no.

The Warhawks have become a difficult team to figure out…Start the year 6-6…Then go on to lose 8 of their last 10 - winning only @ FIU and at home versus MTSU…

We won the last time out 73 – 62 in Boca Raton…

On paper, we appear better this year as well…Although pretty even on offense, we have sparked lately - and I feel we have that advantage overall…also, defensively they give up more…

Offense For FG% 3P% FT% Reb.
FLATL 68 44.7 35.3 64.1 31
ULMON 68.4 40.9 34.7 71 29.1
Defense Agst. FG% 3P% FT% Reb.
FLATL 73.2 44.4 36.9 70.1 30.5
ULMON 76.9 46.5 38.9 68.3 34.4


However, they shot well against teams that do not defend the perimeter particularly well…and after the dismal shooting (20%) they put up against USA on National Television last Saturday, they WILL be out for blood when the Owl’s fly in tomorrow night…This "emotional factor" is of concern…

They only shot poorly against WKU and USA…gee what a shocker – the two clearly dominant teams in the SBC…the rest about an average of .50 FG% per game…

No post game…we have a solid height advantage…

Can the owls play with the intensity we have seen at home the last few games…do they know that it is (for all intents and purposes) on the line NOW.

Vegas isn't out yet…but i like our chances in this one.

Prediction:

Have to go with the first SBC road win of the year – its time - "Owl Time"…Owls by 3!

Go Owls!

4 of 7 and we're golden…that's all it will take to bring a play-off game back to Boca Raton…
