American Athletic Conference Men's Basketball Release - November 14
Local Owl saidAAC is silently/not so silently flying under the radar in MBB. Personally ,if everyone remains healthy, watch for a FAU-Memphis final that should be more like a sweet 16 match up. Love college sports.Posted On: Nov 17th 2023, 4:23 AM
That's the plan!
Hopefully 3 or 4 other schools will power up over the next couple of years. 4 bids every year should be our goal.
Rick saidOf course the Tigers produce a 9-0 run in less than a minute just after I posted that…lolPosted On: Nov 17th 2023, 8:37 PM
The Tigers stunk it up tonight, but still was able to pull out a 17 pt win.
Tulane had a solid win 92-57 over Sacramento St.
What's got me shocked is Wichita State getting thumped by Liberty 73-56 with 4:19 left on the clock.
They hit their FTs… 73-58.
I think FAU is playing very disciplined basketball out of the gate. The benefit of returning players who've played together.
Rick saidTigers a 30 point favorite and it's a 10 point game midway through the 2nd half…hope we aren't in that position tomorrow but who knows. These teams are going to play with all they have considering what is on the line from both a pride and RPI perspective.Posted On: Nov 17th 2023, 8:34 PM
Just an FYI… Michigan and Arkansas both lost tonight at home.
Long Beach St 94
UNC Greensboro 78
14 Arkansas 72
We play Michigan next week in Game 1 of Battle for Atlantis.
Win or lose we face the winner or loser of Arkansas/Stanford.
North Carolina and Villanova are on the other side of the bracket.
Kenpom has us up to 24 already from 37 and I suspect we'll keep rising if we keep playing well
