    This appears to be a "must win" kind of game. We really do need to get a W. It will be interesting to see how many butts are in the seats.

      This one is hard. Part of me says we should win this; then the other part of me reminds myself that this team has played like dawgshit pretty much all season.

      I like Hunter and think he's a fairly good coach. Tulane isn't the easiest of places to recruit to, but they've shown some improvement and from what I can recall, they play hard under him and they're going to give max effort.

      I'm going to try and be positive and say we win this one.

      The Fighting Hunter's - 62
      The Lackluster Brown's - 65

      Win or lose, I just want to see changes made. Be it the starters, the rotation, the offensive game plan (assuming we have one). Less dribbling. More passing. Better shots. Attack the ****ing basket more. Those things will make me at least a little happy.

        For the love of Pete can Monzi get some more playing time over the other guy?

          How did I not know that Coach McCallum was Hunter's top assistant? He had a few nice teams in his time at Detroit. Not a bad 2nd chair.

            Well if there’s every a chance we lose for the first time ever to Tulane, this is it.

              Not feeling good about this one. Until HCIB decides he actually wants to make some adjustments (bother personnel and in game) the Shox will continue the slide.

                  They have wins over Memphis and Cincy......don't see us winning this one either, sadly...

                    Tulane definitely trending up...good 'ole boys not so much. But this is an opponent I'm hoping to get one of our 4 conference wins this year. Might as well so...

                        Jalen Cook 6-0 G Covid Freshman - Played at LSU last year. Averaging 19.4 PPG.
                        Jaylen Forbes 6-5 G Covid Sophomore - Played for Alabama 2 years ago. Averaging 15.1 PPG and 4.5 RPG
                        Kevin Cross 6-8, 240 F Covid Sophomore - Played for Nebraska 2 years ago. Averaging 14.3 PPG and 6.2 RPG
                        Sion James 6-5 G Covid Freshman - Averaging 7.2 PPG and 4.2 RPG
                        RJ McGee 6-5 G Covid Sophomore - Averaging 6.3 PPG and 3.2 RPG

                        The primary reserves are as follows: Scott Spencer Devon Baker Nobal Days, Jadan Coleman 6-4 G Covid Freshman, Tylan Pope
                        Scott Spencer 6-6 G Senior 2.8 PPG in 13.4 MPG - Played 2 years at Clemson and 2 years at LaSalle - Reportedly at Rival Top 150 out of HS
                        Devon Baker 6-2 G Covid Junior - 3.5 PPG in 13.2 MPG - Played the previous 3 years at UNC-Asheville
                        Nobal Days 6-9, 220 F Covid Sophomore - 0.9 PPG and 2.5 PPG in 11.5 MPG
                        Jadan Coleman 6-4 G Covid Freshman - 4.4 PPG in 10.6 MPG
                        Tylan Pope 6-6 F Covid RS Freshman - 2.6 PPG and 3.1 RPG - 9.7 MPG

                        I am really not seeing the size advantage. Perhaps Tulane having a bunch of 6-5 guards that can hound Tyson Etienne. Other than that not seeing it. Might be one game where the Shocks can actually match up size-wise at the 4 and 5.

                          I used to think we would win every game...even though I knew there would be losses. There just wasn't many games that I thought we would lose going in.

                          Now I go in thinking we lose just about every game. Even though I know that likely wont be the case either. Even with a decent record right now, I just never feel confident anymore.

                          I hate that feeling. Forgot what it felt like.

                          Right now, I think it's a better than 50% chance we lose to Tulane.

                              I'd say this is a must win or else the first chance of implosion.
