    UNC-Greensboro 7 pm. 2 of 31.

    They were in the big dance at 27-7 after winning the southern conference. Lost to Gonzaga by 4 in the first round.

    Favored to win the conference again they have 3 returning starters with one (Alonso) who can fill it up from 3. But they make their mark on defense.

    Lsu is favored by 10' but I can see this being close. Feels like a toss-up to me. Hopefully our size and depth dominates.

    97-91, it wasn’t an easy win. UNC-G had 19 threes. We had 9. Team looks like they’re still trying to find themselves; UNC-G might be a NCAA tourney team, I think this was a good win. Next up 1-0 Memphis, with Penny Hardaway as HC.

    97-91 Tigers hold on. Uncg was all that I expected. Rained 3s all 2h. Naz Reid hitting from 30+ like he's shooting a free throw 29 pts 11/14fg 6 boards 4/6 from 3 and 3/3 from the line.

    I really really like smart. Waters is the key to it all however. He's so impressive.

    Team shot 28/31 free throws. Made our first 21 I think. Gotta be a record.


    Was just an assessment and it played out like I thought

    Waters was cold and hot, picked pockets and made laser passes, mishandled the ball, streaky shooting.

    Had the pace of an ncaa tourney game. More points than I foresaw. Just checked it was projected 143. Over by 45 pts.

    21 pts 10 assists 6 steals

    He was pretty dynamic even with the 5 turnovers. Just does so many things that don't show up in the stats. Really reminds me of what I remember of Ethan Martin mixed with some maravich.

    He’s special; it’s weird not seeing the threes from outer space yet, but there are so many other guys to help out, it’s probably a good thing.

    His handles and distribution are other worldly still, and Naz is definitely a different breed.
