I’ll be there! Family will be in Sec 124, Row QQ in the first 5 seats. Since I just graduated from UNCG I’ll be using the student ID for the game and don’t really know where I’ll be! I’m pretty sure I’ll be in Sec 124 and I’ll hang with the family as much as possible. Hope to see some of you guys there.12/30/2013 at 12:18 PM #33096
Ok, back to business – and I think it’s a good thing that it’s happening so soon after that occurrence on Sat. night.
I hope I’m wrong, but I expect this game to be close for at least thirty minutes and then we’ll see what happens down the stretch. Foul trouble and free throw shooting – those look like keys for us all season … I’m anxious to see the response tonight.
Wes Miller is still very hate-able to me. I know that’s not nice, but whatevs …12/30/2013 at 12:21 PM #33097wilmwolf80Participant
There is no reason, other than official incompetence, that TJ should not be shooting an and-1 on 75% of the shots he makes. I would wager that there is not a player in the country that scores as much as he does, who get less of their points from the line. TJ is very good at finding open areas, and getting uncontested put backs, but he also draws lots of contact that goes without a whistle.
Hopefully we are working non-stop in practice on our zone offense, because we won’t play many teams this year that don’t zone us. It’s an easy decision for the opposition, against man-to-man, I think our guys can hold their own against most any team in the country. Beating the zone seams so easy on paper, just get the ball to the high post, and break the zone down from there. In application, it seems as though our guys have a harder time with it. There is no reason we can’t run the UCLA offense against a zone, and our guys have to learn that. But they are young, and I’m sure they will keep getting better at it.
Lastly, Gott needs to work on his skill at working the refs, if there is such a thing. We don’t even get the normal home team favorable calls that you would expect against the scrub competition. How much of that we can control, outside of our “tendencies”, I honestly don’t know. All I know is that the best coaches out there are good at working the refs, and that doesn’t mean just complaining when they make a bad call.12/30/2013 at 2:27 PM #33098PoppaJohnParticipant
As to zone offense, getting the ball to Kyle at the post is a new wrinkle I hope we see a lot more of. He seemed very comfortable with the short jumper. He’s improved his defense. If he can look for the pass as well as that shot, he’ll be scary good. I think he’s going to be great.12/30/2013 at 2:31 PM #33966

Womens College is starting at forward tonight Avie Lester’s, ( I know ya’ll remember AVIE! ) cousin.#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/30/2013 at 7:08 PM #33546
If 31 is going to be allowed to hold Warren on every little movement then it’s going to be a long night.12/30/2013 at 7:08 PM #33547FergusWolfParticipant
why are we just jacking up 3s? They are playing man, and we are bigger and more talented than they are?12/30/2013 at 7:08 PM #33548
I used to play against Avie. He was the most feared pickup player in the gym. He was a friggin beast.
We should use our size against these guys12/30/2013 at 7:10 PM #33549
BTW Avie coached Purvis at Upper Room and is now coaching/teaching at Neuse Christian (at least he was lats year)12/30/2013 at 7:14 PM #33550
Looking at the crowd on TV…. I know we have more alums in the Triad than that !

Vandy shoved out of bounds no call but he has to know not to do that12/30/2013 at 7:18 PM #33555
Announcers are on my nerves already. THey are blowing UNCG.
Then, Vandy “falls” out of bounds
Barber “shoves” down the defender12/30/2013 at 7:19 PM #33556BJD95Keymaster
I is getting nervous.
Ohai forums!!!!1111112/30/2013 at 7:19 PM #33557
Clear forearm to the back to shove Vandy … can’t see how it wasn’t called.
Not much offensive flow again tonight.12/30/2013 at 7:19 PM #33558
So far we are doing excellent job of play one or two on five on offense.
And our success is duly reflected in the score.#NCSU-North Carolina's #1 FOOTBALL school!12/30/2013 at 7:19 PM #33559redcanineParticipant
Why can’t we get the ball to our 7 footer somewhere inside the 3 point arc? Is it because he’s just standing around watching?12/30/2013 at 7:20 PM #33560BJD95Keymaster
Sweet Jeebus. Now I is downright troubled.
