Bball thread – App State at El Cid

ItThirteen minutes left in the game, aaaaaaaaaand App State is down. Way down. 54-40. Ugh. Mountaineers are making 33 percent of their shots. The Bulldogs? 58 percent. Ugh. Donald Sims has 26. No other App has more than 7. Ugh. Carter is 0-6. Ugh. Just one Ugh-lee night.

IT’S A FINAL. El Cid wins 81-63. Sims has game-high 28. Petey Hausley only other Mountaineer in double-digits with 12. Meanwhile, four ‘Dogs go for 19, 18, 17 and 15 points. This is Citadel’s first D1 win since Christmas.

    Eh, just a bad night. Hopefully this doesn't turn into a trend. I expect we'll see a more focused App team against C of C.

    Is the team coming back to Boone or will they stay down there until Saturday?

    56-79…bad guys…with 2 minutes to go…but Chattanooga is down 70-35 with 9 minutes to go in the game to Wofford…The team will stay in Charleston and not be going back to Boone

    If UNCG holds on to the lead v. GSU then they will just be a game behind us. With a game at Charleston and then home for Wofford, the next week could continue the agony. After that we travel to Furman and Greensboro. This season is sure looking dim at this point.

    West Carolina lost to CofC by 29 tonight. Saturday could be really ugly.

    what's happening in this conference?

    It's a terrible basketball conference. Always has been, always will be.

    For some strange reason, I don't think Saturday will be that bad. C of C has loads of talent, but they only play a 7-man rotation, which could wear them down towards the end of the year (which is what happened when we played them in the tourney last year.)

    This team isn't awful, they just can't win away from the Holmes Center to save their lives.

    cbarrier: They can't even win IN the Holmes Center…

    What are we going to do to get basketball where it needs to be? What is it going to take? Come to think of it though, how many schools out there are known for BOTH their football and basketball programs? I would wager not many.

    Former Mountaineer (2000) Scott Smouse will be named the new O-line coach at Furman. Scott spent the last two years in the same position at Jax State.

    Villanova has a good Football and Basketball team; they both won NC's in the same year, I think.

    Sorry 'Nova's bball team didn't win a NC in the same year, but I think they were in the final four that year.

    JLand: If not for the UNCG debacle, they are undefeated at home this year.

    Take a step back and see that with some losses at key positions, a third staff in three years, we're still sitting at .500 in conference. Two of the losses were by a point each. We get a couple breaks our way in those games and 4-4 in the SoCon becomes 6-2.

    We are FAR from "Western Carolina football" bad…

    I am patient. We gave HF 7 years to get it right. I'll reserve judgement until the beginning of year 4 with Jason.

    Unfortunately, I've already judged the fan attendance and interest. With that arena I don't understand why 30% of the students don't go to the games.


    January 21, 2011 at 6:31 am

    …and that's why we are a football school.

    Off topic but the Panthers are looking at Rickey Proehl to coach the receivers.

    Assuming they pull the trigger, I think this is a good move. I hope Armanti can get some good knowledge from this guy.

    All you can do is be patient with a new staff and and players that have been coached by 3 different staffs and systems. What makes everyone think that we even should be great in basketball? I'm all for it, but what are the advantages over other similar schools for potential recruits? Some of the best athletes might not like cold weather. Of course, our facilities are nice, we have a potentially really good recruiter, but what else would entice the best players to play in Boone?
