@The Citadel

Postby woffordgrad94 on Wed Jan 14, 2015 3:53 pm

This game is going to be a tough one. The Citadel was been playing quite well. The Bellhops appear to be much improved over last season. They have some good inside players such as Ashton Moore. And these guys HATE us! They will be gunning for us with both barrels and they think they have a good chance to beat us. We sure better bring our A++ game down to Charleston. I think we are definitely going to have to play better than we have in the past few games in order a prevail. We need a complete 40 minute game. And if Eric Garcia is not ready ,and I have no idea if he will be or not, it will be that much tougher. I like John Swinton , who seems to be an upstanding guy and the epitome of a team player ,and freshman Derrick Brooks is going to be a really good for us one day, but neither of them can truly fill Garcia's shoes right now. I hope we have him back. Hopefully the Dogs will rise up and meet this challenge. Knowing this team, I think there is a very good chance that they will do just that. Go Terriers!

Why does it tip at 6pm? I will usually drive down from Columbia for a 7pm start, but can't make six.

The Citadel has a couple of conference wins, including a 10 point win over Samford. They aren't world beaters, but they are good enough to beat us if we don't play well. We will and should go into the game as the favorite, but we have stuggled some lately and if we do so again they are definitely good enough to take advantage of that.

If EG isn't good to go, Swinton & Brooks MUST not get into foul trouble like they did on Saturday night. Picking up cheap, early fouls leads to sitting on the bench or, worse, playing soft defense to avoid picking up additional fouls. Hopefully the senior Swinton is better about that tomorrow night since it's much more difficult to expect such heady play from a true freshman like Brooks. We should hopefully have a decent amount of fan support tomorrow night as there is a Wofford alumni pregame event- any Wofford alums in the area, go out and support your Terriers!

We will need to play great D, since the Bellhops shoot it very well but also turn it over some.

Cochrane 18 points in first half (six 3's). Pretty well played by both teams so far. Need a few more stops in the second half. Video working well.

Wofford up 37-28 at half. Still no Garcia. I hope he's ready Saturday.

We need our team to heal up. If walk-ons are getting significant minutes in conference play, our guys are really getting banged up. Gordon needs to keep playing with out fouling- he's already picked up 2 in the 1st half before MY sat him down. With us being short at both the PG and POST positions, our bench needs to step up. Cochran may be able to do it himself but I fear that puts the rest of our guys in ball-watch mode and makes the offense too one-dimensional. Eventually, someone's gonna figure out how to deny Karl the ball off that screen and then we could be in trouble if we don't have second options developed.

I assume Coach Young was wearing shades in this interview. http://www.postandcourier.com/article/2 ... d-feelings

Don't understand why we didn't call a timeout after we crossed halfcourt on the last possession. All we needed was 2
