    AP Top 25 Poll

    Of note:

    Baylor #2 :yikes:
    Kansas #5
    Houston #7
    WV #11
    Texas #13 :coolnana:
    Tech #17

    Wow! Is this the State of Texas we're in, or North Carolina...?

    Nova comes in at #9. We played them very close, so a "quality" win I suppose (if there is such a thing...). We play Baylor this coming Sunday at 2pm. We'll get to see just how good we are real quick.

    I think it was a positive for our guys that the BU game was postphoned. Our team cannot match up with the bear shooters. Our athletic big guys are dynamic and will give bu, or anyone, headaches but we are lacking in the mid range and 3 point shooting.
    Also, we cannot seem to play without giving teams too many foul shots, thus putting our best defensive players in foul trouble by the ten minute mark of the 2nd half.
    My hope is that a miracle occurs and our shooting dramatically improves; and that we learn to play defense without giving up twice as many free throws as we get.

    Huh?

    Our lads can not only match up with BU, we can stomp them into the court! They're lucky they cancelled out on us.

    I think the team needed the practice even though it probably would've been a L. Losing the the #2 team isn't going to hurt the SOS. What's beating up on SHSU going to do for the team except allow them to develop more bad habits?

    Now we're #10.

    UT = Top 10 in basketball.

    And there was much rejoicing in Austin.

    Agree! Outscoring osu by 8 in the second half yesterday was great! It was so good to see the team respond with the sharp shooting from mid range and beyond.

    I went to the Gonzaga/Virginia game in Fort Worth today. Gonzaga is a solid team. They’ve got an inside game, an outside game and really good defense. Very well coached and it showed. Nice to watch five guys that all seemed to be on the same page.

    #4...


    Hard to believe, but until we screw up badly on defense and look out of synch on offense, I'll take it.

    Michigan is 10-0. Keep an eye on Big Blue.
    Tech just beat the stuffing out of ISU and is on the rise. Dangerous opponent.

    We’re #5 after a minor temporary set back to #12 Texas Tech. I get Iowa jumping us. Keep an eye on them and Michigan. The Big 10 is on the heels of the Big 12 as the top basketball conference. Kansas is #9. WV is #14. Baylor is still #2. Houston is in the top 10. Texas—what a great basketball state. :coolnana:

    AP Top 25 Poll

    The hamburgerlers are #6, right behind the real UT.
