Villanova game thread

Postby CU Final Four » Mon Jan 29, 2018 7:45 pm

I heard Coach Pete Gillen just now on the radio. His comments:

1. We have a chance if we hit our threes.

2. KT on Brunson. Lock him down.

3. KT and MF are among the top 7-8 duos in the college game today.

4. He likes Toby. He is disruptive when he hits his threes.

5. Seven BE teams get bids.
I love Creighton basketball. Yes, I do. I love Creighton. How about you?

The week can really drag when you go from Saturday to Thursday without a game. Still just Tuesday? At least I have temperature Tuesday to break up the stretch.

Temperature Tuesday? Enlighten us.. (or are you talking about at Runza because I don't know if that would help or prolong the suffering)

My hunch is that Nova will badly expose Creighton's point guard play. It will take an A+ game for the Jays to win this on the road. A few keys:

* Shoot 50%+ from three. Every season Creighton has a handful of games in which they light it up from long range. This would be a great time to do that.

* Khyrifense limits Brunson's damage. Enough said.

* Foster time. Last season against Nova, he only had one solid game game of the three meetings. He can absolutely be the best player on the court Thursday.

* Bench scoring. Epperson, Alexander, or Ballock need to break out.

Hell, it sure beats a late January trip to Cedar Falls.

His last 7 minutes of play versus GT were good. The first 20 were not.

Oh yeah. 18 cent Runza ($3.50 with rings and a drink). Love runzas - although my mom's home made runzas are way better to be honest.

Post a recipe for your mom's Runza's?! Making a Runza run anytime that I am in Nebraska - a must!

Nova has won the last 6 games played. Yep. Time for that to change.
No better place to change up than the Wells Fargo Center.
Nova is unbeatable in Radnor at the Pavilion, but not so at the WFC.
Jays 2-1 @WellsFargoCtr, 1-0 vs Nova @WFC (Wragge).

Good defense, keep the TOs low, drive the lane, hit our FTs, and Toby!
Jays clip the Champs...#1 Villanova. Jays 87-83. ;)

Do they have a dollar beer nite at the WFC?

OOh and that's just the BEGINNING.
