fair to say this will be a tossup? we could be a slight favorite.

The ESPN app this morning had the Titans as 56% likely to win. I had the same expectation as Mac, that it was gonna be close to a toss-up. I don't know if ESPN's odds (presumably from a betting site) are more reliable than the KenPom math

We should be able to win.

The way we were passing the ball quick up top during last night game at one point is what we need to do against this zone. It should give us a lot of open three points if we are quick moving that ball. Or get a guy to get the ball around the free throw or lower and kick it back out when the zone collapses. We had a lot of success with Miller Time on this zone. He was letting the wings strike as the zone collapsed on him and was throwing ally ops up. Bul needs to be keyed up for this game. I am anticipating Bul to be 8-) 8-) 8-) on March 2.

Based on the current Sagarin rating system NKY is favored by 2 (home court advantage per Sagarin is 2) neutral site we would be even. CLV favored by 9, WTS. by 15 and OAK by 2 over YST. It will be interesting what the Vegas line is for these games.

yeah. i saw the sagarin home court factor. kinda wonder how much advantage there is to an empty home court? anyways, we are 5-4 on the road this year. 3 of those losses were against kent state michigan state and notre dame...

UDM has a slight advantage vs. NKY in that we shoot threes @ 39% vs. 31% and in FT 80% vs 70% All indications point to a very close game. They split with WTS. we lost both, they lost both to CLV we split. We won both from GB and YST they split.

The Kent St. game was at Calihan. Probably the worst game the Titans played all season. The four road losses were MSU, Notre Dame, Oakland and CSU.

NKU lost to Kent State by 19, but on the road.
