Was wayyyy off on my Hundo Burger prediction for the GW game. I'll dial it down and predict a 90 burger tonight against the Kangaroos

Give me a 30 point win margin and I'm fine.

Tip off probably at 9:15 or later tonight continuing the tradition of hideous non con tip times!

Double header M and W tonight I believe. The non con slate at home is brutal aside from the Seton Hall game

Missi going for 60 tonight. Book it.

I hope the men are inspired by the big win the women just got over #4 Utah. The Lady Bears looked very good, especially in the first half. The men need to overcome some of the problems they had vs GW and dominate. Playing so many games in a short time is having its toll.
historian

The late tipoff is mainly because it's immediately after the WBB game with only a short break in between. They have to allow time for fans only there for one game to exit or enter. I wish I could have been there for both!

Heck of a start for the good guys.

Dennis is playing really well after his early turnover. Three assists, active hands and a nice drive to the rack.

Josh defense again. Ugh

Before getting beat and fouling, he did a nice job of cutting off a baseline drive and had a great contest that would have been a stop if the shot hadn't airballed straight into another players' hands.

He's not going to be perfect. Fans need to stop turning every molehill into a mountain.

And 2 Dennis TO's already?

We still have some things we havent ironed out yet.

Nice take by Little. It would be nice to see more of that from him.

This will be true for a while.

Kinda playing down to the competition.

I think you are correct sir.

Nunn's a stud. I didn't realize was as quick or skilled as he is when we signed him.

We're on pace to go to halftime up 14. We're doing alright.

Goodness he's on.

A couple of nice turnaround fadeaways by UMKC.
Married A Horn

Our high school has a really good RB. When we give him the ball a ton, we win. In that spirit - give the ball to Nunn tonight!

Man, I'm not sure I've seen many quicker off the second step like Nunn. When's he drives to the basket he is moving DOWNHILL.

This is good. Real good. Having this weapon that can bust a shooting slump and drive and get to the line is something special.

Better now. KC is scrappy.

Dude just sank both the $250 and the $5000 Mattson Financial putt.

Second time ever IIRC

Lol what a putt!

He's almost Davion Mitchell quick. I really didn't realize he was that twitchy when we got him.

Ok Grimes - let's see what you can do here.

Grimes is super quick, too. This team has five guards that can get to the rim at will. And the one who can't (Little) had a nice drive earlier this game.

JTT is on the court!
