Open the tournament with a 68-61 win against Kansas State.

 

Georgetown shat the bed against Northeastern and lost, so now we play Northeastern in the semi-finals tomorrow at 2:30 PM. Game will be on ESPN2.

Charlotte advances past Northeastern and will play the winner of FSU/Michigan on Sunday.

 

Hoping for Michigan since we already play FSU later in the season.

If we stay out of foul trouble I think we can keep it respectable. We have a good starting 5 (ehh 4, with Cherry being fine if he's hitting 3's), one superb player coming off the bench, and a solid backup in Denzel Ingram.

 

If either of our bigs get in foul trouble we are screwed though.

 

I don't think we'll win, but I like this matchup wayyyyyyyyyyyy more than FSU. FSU is huge and really athletic Michigan relies more on their shooting and shooting teams have cold days sometimes. Who knows, maybe tomorrow will be that day.

 

We already play FSU later in the year anyway.

woooooooooooooooooooooo.

 

 

Partied in Belfast Mill with about 25 other fans during the game. Great time. Great win.

 

This is exactly why I preferred playing UM. Great shooting teams even have bad shooting nights. Michigan doesn't have much of an inside game, so we out rebounded them and controlled the flow of the game.

 

Honestly, we should have won that game by 15 or more. We just have very poor stretches on offense where we can't score.

charlotte got 35 points last week in the AP top 25 vote.  They won't play again for a few days, but you have to think a few more wins gets us ranked.

We play tomorrow.

 

Our next three games are against bad teams, so we need to win by big margins if we want to keep getting more votes. We won't face another legitimately good team until we play FSU. 

 

I really hate that there was such a gap between games. I feel like a lot of the excitement from that win has worn off. Throw in that the game is on a Sunday and I expect attendance to be mediocre at best.
