Wofford vs. Arkansas

Postby woffordgrad94 on Sun Mar 15, 2015 6:38 pm

We got the 12 seed but I am disappointed with our draw. We are in Jacksonville but we get a team that will be very difficult for us to match up with. Arkansas will press us to death and feed it inside to their terrific big man who will present us with a big time matchup problem. We have a tough row to hoe.

We can beat them. It'll be tough, but it can be done. We have Karl Cochran and Lee Skinner.

I watched "HOOSIERS" also! We can win for a lot of reasons. We got 'em right where we want 'em-overconfident!

They lost to Clemson, beat Missouri by 1, and beat Iona a little worse than we did. http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketb ... razorbacks

Lets just say we will be a slightly different matchup than they had today.

Good draw for us- ARK is the weakest 5 seed according to Pomeroy.

There are no easy games.

This is the same Wofford team that took a pretty good swing at an unbelievably good Michigan team last year!

Have faith...

We have one thing going for us. Arkansas is definitely a team who may very well overlook us. Their fans certainly are. I bet a lot of people in Arkansas have never heard of Wofford. Hopefully we can give them an introduction they'll never forget.

We are well coached, disciplined, confident, and play great D. If we shoot it well, we will be fine.
That said, I must admit I hope we play some zone defense.....but I bet we won't.

We are the same team who hung pretty well with Duke for a long time. Just hope we are not the team who showed up against WV. I think we have come a long ways since then but we have to manage their pressure and get some easy buckets out of it or turn this into a half-court knock-down drag-out.

What say you, ART?

If we focus and play like we are capable of, we have a good chance to be successful.

Hey- We are in the session with UNC, so we will have lots of fans pulling for us outside our base. With the last game of the day we will get lots of viewers from the west. Our folks will have to take a nap to stay up that late! Some of us will be there yelling. You can almost work all day in Spartanburg and drive down in time for the game.

I'll go out on a limb and say that the majority of people over here are die-hard Razorback fans. I've made a little impression -- there is a tiny contingent of Wofford fans in southern Pulaski County. If you're around me for any amount of time, chances are you'll hear about Wofford sooner or later. I know a lot of folks over here that watched the SoCon title game and were tracking "bracketology" for Wofford. There's even a few basketball players interested in the college, but that's for another day...

As for the game itself, it really just comes down to which teams enter the court on Thursday. I've watched a lot of Arkansas basketball, and you never know which Hogs are coming to play. They'll be tough. I know my father is very disappointed in this matchup. He's a lifelong Arkansas fan who has been following the Terriers with me for several years now. We were happy about the Jacksonville, Fla., draw, for Wofford but not the opponent. Of course, I'm on the Terriers' side, as always. It's going to be an interesting week for me over here...I don't know how the majority of Arkansas fans view Wofford.
