Brutal Schedule Coming Up
« on: November 21, 2012, 08:28:33 am »

Ok we have gotten past all the weak "Sisters of Charity of Nazareth" type teams.  Now the schedule hooks up with Arizona State, either Wisconsin or Creighton, #6 Syracuse, Oklahoma, and #4 Michigan.  All of these teams are still undefeated.  I'm not sure any of the teams we have played so far have yet to win a game.  We will now find out what we are made of.

Can we win 2 of those games?  I'm thinking if we go 2 and 3 to move to 5 and 3, we should be happy.

I think we go 3-2. However, if we win both games this weekend I would not be surprised if we knocked of Syracuse and OU.

3-2 and I'll call that a win.  2-3 will be ho-hum.

It really is more about how the team competes against those type teams than it is that they win, at this point.  I'm really looking forward to seeing how this team matches up with ranked teams.  I would expect at least two wins out of the upcoming five games, and hope for 3 or more.

If you want to know how far we can go into the NCAA tournament, these next five game should tell you quite a bit. 

We will learn a lot about this team in a hurry.  Should be fun to watch.

I'd take 2-3 right now and run into conference play.

Certainly will answer a lot of questions after this stretch.  I personally am stoked we are playing teams like these.  Kids love these games and our team will grow from it.  Go hawgs!

We'll have our work cut out for us. I marked this one as a -W- on my schedule though!

Not beating Syracuse ... I don't see it
I would be willing to bet I know more about Syracuse than anyone on this board. I have been a fan of theirs for over 10 years, and can count how many games I have missed in that time. If I don't watch them live, I watch the replay online. While I will not say we are going to beat them, we definitely have a good shot if we control the pace of the game.

If we get in a half court game, then we are in trouble. Boeheim rarely takes his teams away from home. This will be their first true road game of the season, and they have a lot of inexperienced players. Carter-Williams and Christmas are Sophomores, but didn't get much PT last year. Keita and Southerland got valuable minutes in the NCAAT when Fab Melo was ruled out,  but they didn't get a ton of time during the season. We don't match up with them size wise, but if we can control the tempo we have a good shot. Boeheim doesn't like to use his bench a lot. They typically will only play 6 or 7 players 10 or more minutes. They are guard oriented. Their bigs are not near as polished as they have had in the past. Keita, Christmas, and Coleman have some work to do. Southerland is a 6'8" forward that is lethal from deep, though. If we are playing fast and able to press then we will have a good chance. The biggest key is making sure we knock down shots so that we can get into the press. If we have a poor shooting night and never get to set up the press then we will be playing a half court game all night and it will be tough for us to score against their zone.

We will definitely be the under dog, but if we are sitting at 5-0 with 20,000 Razorback fans in the BWA, we will have a good shot to shock the nation. I wouldn't rule anything out when BWA is packed like it will be. The energy from the crowd alone should be good for an 8 or 10 point difference.

Don't see us beating Michigan on the road.  Would like to say we can beat AZ State on Friday but we would have a tough matchup if we play Creighton on Saturday.  Think we should beat OU with our pressure defense at home and Syracuse is a tossup.  So would think 2-3 at worst and maybe 3-2.  Anything more than that and I would be ecstatic.

regardless how it works out it's a great test that should serve us once we reach conference play.

If we don't be ASU, we may be in for a long season.

I like the having the tough competition coming up. Not only will it keep our players on their toes and give em good game experience, it will also help towards the end of the season if we are a bubble team.

Yeah...not looking so good.  Can you say 1-4 or 0-5 on this stretch?
