      Just a game that the only thing I'm worried about is that our players come away with the win injury free.

        Hope they learned something about themselves last game and come out and play with some fire. Not sure we’ll be able to tell with this opponent though.

          Don't look ahead to Oklahoma State like I'm doing.

            Totally looking past Central AR. We'll see High Major Division I players in Stillwater. I thought we looked very midmajor against WV.
            Wichita State, home of the All-Americans.

                Inexperience does not equal mid-major.

                  I was out of town and didn't see either game in Cancun. Did we look midmajor against South Carolina? Just asking for a friend.

                    Totally different type of team. We stopped them from running the court and they had no half court offense. South Carolina is either terrible or we were just a bad matchup for them.

                      This team and Abilene Christian are likely the 2 worst teams we will play all year. Both are currently winless vs D1 schools.

                        Overmatched athletes is midmajor. I've heard all this BS about how we are getting a different level of athlete. It didn't look like it against WVU.

                        Edit: WVU has a pretty young roster too.

                          You got that right.

                            Lots of people are going to be overmatched vs Oscar Tshiebwe. Dude's a legit 5 star monster.

                            Oscar aside, I thought we were overmatched too (you can't be out-rebounded by 17 and not be) physically.

                            Can't give up 41% from 3 and shoot 67% from the line on 30 attempts and 31% from the field and expect to beat anybody decent (WVU had a lot of say in our bad shots though). We did take care of the ball better than WVU (only 9 turnovers vs 13) but that's a bit misleading as they had 5 steals vs our 3. They gave us several freebies and only shot 60% from the line or the score could have been a lot worse.

                              WVU's best players were Culver (6-10) and Tshiebwe (6-9). Our lineups are small and our bigs are not amazing defensively, so we got burned. It was a bad matchup for us on that side of the court, and inexperience on the other side also hurt us. Doesn't make us mid-major, just undersized for a matchup like that.
