Fresno State?
« on: November 13, 2017, 12:36:01 pm »

Little mention of Fresno State on here, but, after all, that is our next game.  Can someone tell me anything about them? Are they supposed to be any good?  How would they rate compared to our first two opponents?

It would be another top 100 win that the NCAA committee would see in March. They are listed just a little bit behind Bucknell.
Interestingly enough, LSU is 88th, and Fresno St is 89th. So it could be like playing LSU. They are a good team.

I know Fresno State.  Expect a better defensive team than what we have seen so far.     They have 6 players scoring in double figures, decent rebounding team also.  Not sure about charity stripe (FT).

One player I know in particular is a senior transfer by the name of Ray Bowles Jr who can flat out light it up and did so while at UOP in Stockton, CA.  He was the tigers leading scorer past 3 years before transferring because the head coach got into some trouble with the NCAA (UOP Probation).

The Hogs can't afford to be thinking of the Tourney (Bobby Knight) with Oklahoma (?) and take this team lightly.  But all things considered if the HOGS play their game.........they should win.

Fresno hit 7 straight 3-points in their first game against the Banana Slugs.  They finished 5-17 after that for 12-24.  They allowed UC Santa Cruz to shoot over 50%, but generated 23 turnovers on 12 steals.  They had 23 assists on 36 made buckets.  Only shot 57.1% from the free throw line. 

UC Santa Cruz went 12-13 last year in DIII, so they are horrible.

The Gaels are probably a little bit over ranked. But also, its an instate matchup and probably a bit of a rivalry because of it.

Fresno State's defense was virtually invisible against Cal State Northridge. 

The Matador's were able to score 73 points on 46.3% shooting and went 8-16 from the 3-point line. 

The difference in the game was the Fresno State shot 62.5% and went 10-17 from the 3-point line to give them 89 points.  Cal state turned the ball over only 9 times, but 7 of them were Bulldog steals.  Fresno only turned in 7 times but 5 of those were Cal State steals.

Only one Bulldog shot under 50% for the game, and that was transfer Ray Bowles Jr. who went 2-8 and 0-3 from 3.

The bulk of their 3-point shooting came from Jahmel Taylor who went 6-7 off the bench.

Ahhhh I see you mentioned Bowles, was that a swipe at me perhaps ????   Just so you know anyone can have a bad game even our HOGS.   But this team is not to be taken lightly despite your subtle jab at my earlier post.  That's fine, hope you enjoyed yourself.  lol

No jab. If it had been any other player on the team, or maybe two players on the team, I probably would've called them out. 

It's super impressive to have all but one player shoot 50+% for a game.

No problem.  I'm a fan of UOP Tigers in Stockton, CA and so I follow them along with Fresno State mostly because of my Semi-pro baseball career in Modesto.    I know how people get excited and think we going to beat every opponent we face but this team does have some weaknesses and can't afford to get to cocky.  One game at a time I would tell my baseball team, back in the day.   ;)

The 6'11" 290 LB Center that Fresno has is reason for concern. Can Thompson bang with a guy THAT big??

Not super worried about a guy that averaged 5.6 ppg in his best season last year.  His 1.0 Blocks per game average in 2 games against absolute scrubs doesn't scare me either, and neither do his 4.0 Rebounds.

Guy's about the same size as Trey. I doubt the team is going to give us Trey's updated weight number. He's gained weight without question.

I'd say more than likely.  There's always some floating around.  Could be some turn backs at the window.  I think attendance is going to be really good for the game based on what I'm seeing on secondary sites.  14k would be a very good crowd for week before Thanksgiving.  Should still be decent numbers of open seats in lower bowl.  If you can only score upper tickets I'd get them, get in, sit in your seats and then wait for about 5 min into the game and look for open seats in lower section.  Pick one that has a decent number so that in case the people show up you can just slide over.

They are our next opponent, and are sitting at 2-0. I made it to both games last weekend, but won't be able to make it tonight. My seats will be filled by a couple friends though. I look forward to a good game tonight and watching the second half from home later.

I was very excited for this season before it began, and my excitement level has only gone up!

Fresno State has some very good guard play with experience. I think the Hogs will be leading by at least 4 points at halftime with Fresno taking a 4 to 6 point lead early in the second half and then the Hogs regaining control at around the 10 minute mark and closing out with a 12 point win. I would be very happy with that outcome.

Maybe, Fresno State has a decent team, but I see the Hogs blowing them out by 20 points or more after a competitive 1st half.

I could see that too but maybe we have an off night and still win. That's something they are going to have to know how to do as well.

If a good crowd shows up and I think it will, look for a fast high scoring entertaining game.  I'm hopeful on attendance based on the fact that there is a FB game tomorrow so a lot of out of town fans will take the opportunity to see these guys.  They are a high energy/motor team and I can't wait to see what they can do with a full or even 3/4's full BWA behind them.  Barford and Macon love to get the crowd going and if it ends up being lob city like the Samford game the roof could come off.  Long and short of it, I'm stoked and after the season/week we've been having the SA's and Razorbacks need some love.
