    I'd like to see DW and Jones play with their heads up a little more and see the court better. Ball
    seems to get stuck in their hands while others are making open back door cuts to the basket.
    I know DW is doing a lot of other things well but he does need to see his team mates better and
    give it up when they flash open in the paint. Hope SM and RN keep posting up strong and they
    get the ball when they do. Just keep playing 40 minutes of defense and take care of the ball and
    all will be fine. Now I think I'd like to see a little more Barney time. He could play some meaningful
    minutes next season. Shocks 81 - 67

      Barney had his scoring record of 6 points and played well last night. That was nice to see. RN also played good yesterday. The quality overall depth on this squad is incredible.
      Shocker basketball will forever be my favorite team in all of sports.

        I was just thinking about that! 2013-14 season and a bunch of us were traveling home together and twitter started blowing up about the plane landing at the wrong airport.

          Not a prediction, but Tulsa has a "Blueout" planned. It will be blue with a lot of yellow and black.

            Obviously a lot of history here which adds to the unknown. Both teams should be up for this game. And our Up should carry through to the end with at least a 15 point win.

              I read somewhere earlier today that there was only about 800 tickets left for this game. You guys gonna turn their arena into Koch South or what? Lol. And/or just maybe the Tulsa folks wanna see this rivalry get going again in the same conference.

              Either way...
              Koch South - 67
              Koch North - 83

                TU's website shows about 450 tickets left.

                They are superbowling it and going all out to sell the place out. I'd bet that there will be a couple of thousand Shocker fans there too.
                Its a good landing if you can walk away, its a great landing if the plane can be reused the next day.

                  Tulsa likes to zone opponents so I predict a tight game at the half. Perhaps Tulsa even up by 5 or 6 and we'll all be dumbfounded why the Shox still can't figure out how to properly execute against the zone. The boyz will then make their usual second half adjustments after being the recipient of a few choice words by HCGM and end up winning by 9.

                        That is great. Their "Blue out" will help our Black and Gold Shocker fans stand out more.

                          This game won't even close 96-67

                            I predict that Landry won't foul out in 10 minutes this time.

                              Landry's true freshman season, in the game we lost at Tulsa where Fred hurt himself, he fouled out in 10 minutes.

                            Brilliant planning on Tulsa's part, as that will represent polka-dots.

                              40 minutes of the old hell - 68
                              40 minutes of the new hell - 86

                              Go Shockers!!!
