Davidson, 1-22

http://athletics.wofford.edu/documents/ ... s_14-2.pdf Game notes. Davidson has win streak going, but were less than overwhelming against Citadel in last outing. Very winnable game for us if we play well.

#142 vs. # 189 in Sagarin. Since the game is at their place, they have 5-6 point edge. http://www.usatoday.com/sports/ncaab/sagarin/

On ESPN3 and woli-am.com. Who's going (besides me)?

Good place to eat in Davidson.

Out of town, but will be watching on 3. However, I WILL be at the game at Elon next week. Davidson has a great arena, but an awful place to try to find a parking spot! (Although Elon is not much better) Davidson has taken apart the teams that came into their place hoping to knock them off recently. I hope our guys will play Defense they way they know to play it. If you go to the Davidson game be sure to check out their arena. It is probably a great example of the way a mid-major arena should be built.

I will watch on ESPN3. We make our living with defense and we like to draw charges. I just hope all those charges don't turn into blocks and they don't call a foul on us for every touch. Maybe I am just being overly paranoid, but teams like Davidson tend to get a lot of home cooking in their arena from officials (one reason I am glad to see them exit the conference). If we lose I want it to be because they outplayed us, not because they shot 50 free throws and our guys stayed in foul trouble all night.

It is a Saturday night game so top refs are in ACC. Want us to play hard and without fear of losing. Just play wide open and let chips fall.

We must defend their guards well and cannot let them have open looks from 3 point range. Skinner must do a good job guarding Brooks inside. We must limit them to one shot. Offense must be efficient. Have some fun.

With 40 minutes to go until tip I just checked the scores and saw that Elon won at GSU. They're tough, as the pre-season predicted. I just want the Wofford team that has played in the last 9 games to show up tonight. Then we will have a showdown with Elon on Thursday night.

To call the first half strange would be an understatement. Watching the Duke/Syr game on TV with the sound down (score also tied at 26 at half)-watching the Wofford/Davidson game on the 3; and listening to Mike and Thom on the internet. I think our guys showed we could take a punch and come back punching. Now it is time to shred the Davidson defense and overcome the awful referees.

Sorry, but the cameras zooming in on the fake football players (who couldn't beat a Charlotte High School Team) makes me puke. I hope we get them on the neutral court at Asheville. As they sing HEY HEY GOODBYE, we wish them well against....who is in the A10?

Did anyone really think we were going to win tonight? Just thank God they are gone.

Schools like Davidson and College of Charleston always had in unfair advantage over scholly football schools in the SoCon. Davidson in particular abused this advantage. They belong in some other conference. The SoCon is for schools that have scholly football.

I was at a local high school basketball playoff game tonight, but I heard that the refs stunk tonight. What a surprise. I warned everyone that was going to happen.
