I'd say destroy them but I said that last time against Austin Peay and look how that turned out.




Seriously though destroy them.

Any hopes of the NCAA tournament now depend on Leron Black's pending diagnoses.

I like that Eboigbodin is now going to get minutes he wouldn't have.... and with added depth, and a relatively good position in the Big Ten standings, I foresee a Big Ten Tournament Championship

You can watch the Illinois-Longwood replay on BTN2Go if you get BTN on your cable.

We only scheduled this game after Oral Roberts and Morehead State declined.

Okay?

Anyway, it would be really nice to get two more wins heading into the Braggin' Rights Game. I really think we beat Missouri in St. Louis, and (HOPEFULLY) that would put us back to a slightly prettier 11-4 heading into a trip to The Barn. Get a little confidence back and some more experience under the freshmen's belts, and you go into Minneapolis hungry for an upset. I remain positive about this season and definitely about next year.

I heard he tried to schedule a game with his buddy at South Carolina but couldn't get it done.

No real chance even if he's healthy. No good wins, starting off 0-2 in a conference where it will probably take 12 wins to get in this year.

That's definitely a positive outlook and I hope it helps you sleep at night. Lol

They look to be improving. If they keep showing growth, they'll be at a great starting point next year. Need a wing, a shooter and some versatile big guys.

Ah, LOL. Very nice, S&C. Very nice.

I guess I should have considered the type of functioning human being I am on Monday morning before trying reading comprehension.

Today is Monday?

That explains a few things.

Longwood is ranked 344/351 on KenPom and is winless against D1 teams this season. An Austin Peay-like performance would not be acceptable. Even without Leron, we should win this one by 20+.

Considering how many other "top" teams have also struggled this year, I'd say the field is pretty wide open. To be sure, we have a lot of work to do, but if we as a team get the pieces put together sooner rater than later, I think we still have a shot. Remember how bad our nonconference play was the last year two years (Winthrop, North Florida, Chattanooga), and we were still a bubble team both of those years. This year is clearly better, though certainly still not great.

The bottom line is that the team has shown flashes and can be pretty good if they ever put it together. It's only a question of how deep the hole they dig will be by the time they do.

It took two reads of your post.

You're a sly one.
