UCF has struggled, losing to all the better hoops teams, they have played this year while mopping up on lesser foes. They are 0-4 in conference with losses to Temple, Houston, SMU and Cincinnati. They have 3 really good players -- Collin Smith, 6-11; Ceasar DeJesus, 6-2; and Alabama transfer Dazon Ingram, 6-6; Ingram leads in rebounds and assists while scoring just under 9 pts a game. DeJesus shoots 38 percent from 3 pt land & 54 percent overall; Smith avgs 14 per game but struggles at FT line (64 percent) and is foul prone. Smith has fouled out three times this year and has way more fouls than any other player on their team. UCF has scored fewer than 65 pts in four of their last five games and shoots below 30 percent as a team on 3 pters. Avery Diggs (6-11) comes off the bench for about 15 minutes per game and gives them some size. Nine guys play 15 minutes or more, which in this case indicates to me they are searching for offensive answers rather than that they have great depth. UCF shoots around 68 percent on free throws.

Plus they're giving away 500 Angry Wave shooting sleeves at the game

btw Tulane had made 80 percent of its Free Throws in conference games so far and avgs only 10 turnovers per game in conference. winning basketball.

I saw this and thought "who in the world wants one of those except people who have a 'Tulane man cave' with anything and everything they can get their hands on?" I mean, there are a million things you can give away that might be usable to ALL of our fanbase (cups, shirts, hats, etc., etc.) but there's a very tiny window of people who can actually USE a shooting sleeve, and that window is basically teenagers. Not a lot of YOGWFers using shooting sleeves, ya know? (unless it helps with your carpal tunnel from posting too much.) :lol:

In my day we didn't need no shooting sleeves! #getoffmylawn

Like road wins in football before homecoming, we've been in this position in hoops before.
Let's seal the deal and win on Tuesday.

No more Tacko Fall, let's hope we can get their big guy in foul trouble and pull out a W. Obviously there's a long way to go and we're all buzzing from Temple yesterday, but I think this team could end up in the top half of the league... a far cry from last-place predictions and Hunter worrying about walking on Lake Pontchartrain.

Do they make rebounding sleeves? Asking for 5 friends.

You can rename casting sleeves and bring them with you when going fishing.

Interestingly Tulane is now in a position to do real damage within the conference over the next several weeks. Before the season started, if someone here had posted Tulane would be 2-2 in conference after opening with UM, UC, UConn and Temple, the reply would have been "Pass the bong."

Absolutely. And someone's name is "IM42lane" :lol: :lol:

Seriously though, that was thought to be a "sure losses" portion of the schedule in light of last year's performance and preseason expectations. We now move into a portion of the conference schedule with a lot of what can now legitimately be considered winnable games. Although, Tulsa upset Houston yesterday, so you never know what can happen.

UCF's Collin Smith is a very athletic big man who runs the court exceptionally well. This could be a tougher game than it seems at first glance. I'll see you all there.

Parity seems to be the norm this year, it's tough to say anyone is an easy win. Look at yesterday's scores... Ranked teams getting blown out, or being taken to multiple overtimes by teams you'd not expect to be close.

Just gotta keep improving every game.

Hunter was never worried about walking on Lake Ponchatrain. :twisted:
