SUU

Post by CelticCat » Fri Mar 12, 2021 11:45 am

Well, here we are in the semi-finals! If we can get a win, we'll be in the championship game for the first time since 2009.

SUU is big - not just tall, but thick. They are an extremely athletic bunch, they attack the rim and they can run a full court press when needed. It's going to be a huge challenge to stay out of foul trouble as they love to drive to the rim, but if the game turns into any sort of shootout the Cats will also have a hard time keeping up. They've scored 81.8 points per game in their last 5 outings, with an average margin of victory of 14.4 points while holding teams to just 67.4 points per game. I do think this is the most winnable game between the top 3 (EWU, Weber (RIP), and SUU) but it's going to take a hell of an effort, and the guys have to be gassed and beat up after the dogfight with ISU.

Let's go Cats!

My vote is for the Cat - griz game to be played in Boise this season.

SUU wasn’t all that impressive when we played them. Lost by 1 point both times in their gym. 2nd game we would have won had the ref not decided to call a foul on a desperation put back from about 18 feet that decided the game. I think you guys can pull it out. Which would mean if the Griz can upset the best team in the Sky imo (EWU), it would be a Cat Griz final. Or we could just end up with EWU vs SUU. Who knows. Both the Griz and Cats seem to be inconsistent teams who can beat anybody at their best.

Looks like about 25 Suu fans in attendance. Not much support for the #1 team.


While registering my vehicles the assessor stated "I have had both Cat and Griz students and alums work for me and the Griz end up working under the direction of the Cats."

They'll enjoy the closer trip to the WAC tournament the season after next.

Looks like we are packing in the lane with kirby and belo to try to stop SUUs big drive in threat. Might work great! So far he hasn't even tried to get in there.

Sprinkle has to seriously retool things in the off season. We are so limited offensively.

Regardless of how the game turns out, the good ‘ol boy announcing certainly will make the game an entertaining one.

We need somebody to be hotter than usual. Gazelas airballed a wide open three...so I guess it isn't him.

Yup, stoppin' SUU is about as hard as nailing Jello to a tree.

The difference that half was their multiple mini runs. They scored in bunches (and fast) several times.

Patterson's minutes are down to about 5-10 per game now. I doubt it'll be him

Slipped away at the end of the half. We might as well be behind by 100.

Better figure it out quickly. That 10-point deficit is a big mountain to climb.

When Xavier was on point and Belo was being a beast we were right there. Xavier needs to balance putting it up and kicking out, too many times he got blocked in there. We can do this!

SUU is a fun team to watch. Lots of weapons on offense.

Every time we get to one score we give up an open three. Every stinking time!
