How in the world did KIm Aiken end up at EWU? The guy should be in the Pac-12.
He is a real good player. It will take some luck tomorrow and some big time shots to fall, in order for the Cats to win. If EWU plays inside out like they are doing right now and rebound like they are right now, the Cats won’t have an answer. The snowflakes on here might get mad, but EWU is by far and away a better team compared to MSU. I’m hoping for an upset and a bad shooting night from EWU, so I can eat medium rare crow.

Working on getting a group to head over tomorrow, will know more later tonight.

Don’t see how anyone could get mad. Simple fact for a UM or an MSU this year is EWU just can out talent them. And in UMs case, out experience them as well. Not a good combo. Team to beat in the Big Sky and will likely be next year as well.

The only glimmer of hope I can see...EWU lost at home to ISU last week. That's what gave SUU the #1 seed. So they aren't perfect. Groves got owned by ISU's center in that game. EWU turned around and blew ISU out the next game. We're going to have to have one of those Villanova vs. Georgetown kinda nights. It would be one of the most improbable wins ever if it happens.

There was something a couple weeks ago about the griz having one of the worst losses in program history. "Hold my beer " Griz down 34, 53-19.

Now where did I leave my tinfoil hat?

Interesting listening to the two coaches in the presser. Sprinkle praised the refs for letting them play. SUU coach Simon whined that his team usually goes to the line a lot more than today. Basically, the key to success for the Bobcats is Jubrile Belo being allowed to play. He got 8 blocks. For some Big Sky crews those 8 blocks would have been 8 fouls.

I think I'd pay to listen to Joe Cravens call BB games. Good announcing crew on the men's side.
Am wishing they called the women’s.
I think Joe did the women’s the first year in Reno. He knows his basketball and the league like nobody’s business, and keeps up with all the new players, too. I thought his comment on Sprinkle was a classic — “I sure like him better now than when he was playing against us!”

It was fun and intense to watch. I loved the “Choate” take them into to deep waters analogy! You learn good grasshopper!

This game, I believe, will be looked back upon as the game that turned the corner for Coach Sprinkle and the program. Proud to be a BOBCAT!!

What a great win. A lot of people on this board have been complaining for weeks about a late season collapse. Have a big bite of crow! Way to go Sprinks!

Yup. I have been as frustrated as anyone. Happy to eat a big plate of crow on that one!

Well, when the Cats go through their yearly late season swoon and give an Idaho team their ONLY victory of the season, I think there was good reason to be skeptical.

Yeah, the swoon did happen and we backed into the tournament like we always do. That is something Sprinkle needs to extract from our DNA and toss into the burn barrel.
