    Barring a miracle comeback, looks like we will be playing ODU.

    Temple up 8 with under a minute to go.

    Beat ODU and then OU/HOF/DAY and come home happy...not ecstatic, but happy.

    Before the season, most would be happy with a 3-1 start to the season given the schedule.

    Tough to gauge how good ODU is.

    They've beat two CAA teams that project to be #2 and #10 (out of 10) in their preseason rankings. The game with Towson (the preseason #2) team went down to the final horn where they were favored by 5 and won by 3 despite having a +8 margin in turnovers and shooting better (41.4 to 34.5%) all the while being a home. The game against JMU was a single digit lead until about 8 minutes left in the game and JMU shot 32% from the floor to ODU's 44%.

    Temple was picked to finish in the middle (7th of 12) of the AAC in the preseason polls I could find -- with Cincinnati/Wichita State picked to win it. So does that put them in line with a Top 3-5 team in our conference? Just watched the game back in the background and Temple dominated the first half and basically just played prevent defense in the second half until ODU pulled back in it.

    Feels like this is going to be a game where our defense will need to be locked in and it should be a win, even if we muddy it up shooting wise. If we can keep to 10 or fewer turnovers, shoot 40% and keep them off the offensive glass, it could potentially be a double digit win.

    Keeping it to under 10 to's will be a tall task at this point. I'm hoping today was a wake up call.

    This is most def more of an MVC level team.

    My predictions...

    Scott scores 20+ points.
    JB plays 30+ minutes.
    Rickman owns the inside game, but then gets pulled out of the game as he's getting hot (as he was tonight and historically in his career).
    Davis and Thomas play well.
    Hughes continues to get more minutes.
    Defensively we're much tighter...in a good way.
    Neither of our walk-ons see the floor.
    March on, you fighting Sycamores, Sycamores
