Bik Sky Quarterfinals:. MSU vs UNC

Post by MSU01 » Mon Mar 09, 2020 3:45 pm

The Bears are absolutely destroying Sac State, who lost its last 6 conference games in a row. Seems like UNC could be a tougher than normal 8 seed, as UNC looked pretty decent against MSU on Friday. The Cats should be able to use their depth and offensive firepower to pull away in the second half, but you never know what could happen if they go cold and let UNC hang around or get a lead.


Go Bobcats! 24-17 31-23 29-25 48-14

From what I've seen, this Bears team is my preseason 2020-21 conference favorite. Very athletic, big and YOUNG!!

The Sac State vs. N. Colorado game was pretty much a forgone conclusion. I know Sacramento has had a lot of injuries to their veteran players, but I still don’t understand how you hope to win a lot of games without playing a lick of defense. N. Colorado can be a dangerous team, as they have plenty of size. But they aren’t Idaho or Idaho St. in the danger category because of coaching. Go, ‘Cats!

Always nervous come tourney time. The first year in Reno I saw #1 MSU lose a game like that to ISU at the buzzer. Really put a damper on that trip as the men also lost out their first game :(

Also lost a couple hundo in the casino. Good thing the weather was just good enough to golf at least one day :)

That’s why you don’t give up on your inside game. We're a balanced team with Smith and Braxton on the inside. We can go cold and still pound them inside. This will be fun. Different game when not playing at home.

Strange team...those Bears. They went 4-9 at home and 8-8 on the road, so I'm not surprised to see them play well today. This game could easily stay close longer than we would like.

To me comparative scores the absolute best metric to use when predicting future results... :^o :wink:
So... we beat Sac State by 44 points last time out, UNC only beat the Hornets by 18 today? So yeah-it'll be a cake walk.

Okay I'm lying. I'm terrified for tomorrow. I'm just not used to the Bobcats being this heavy of a favorite in anything. I just have this sense of impending doom. That's just me though. I'm sure our outstanding team is doing just fine.

Excited to watch the game today. If the cats can win these next couple games, I think they could flirt with a 12 or 13 seed... which would be pretty awesome.

Let’s go cats!!

Thanks...and that's probably on ESPNU? I don't think it's on either ESPN or ESPN2...right?

Missing about half the game because of Pluto. The quality is the same as usual- crappy.

Not sure where that foul was. It was all ball. Big sky refs at their best. They suck

Only up 3 at the half. Missing too many bunnies, too many turnovers, getting blatantly hosed by these so-called refs. This one has big upset written all over it.

So why do we have to watch the Grizzlies play the last 3 minutes of their game against Sac St. during every half time? They played the same thing last night during halftime of the Weber vs SUU game. Probably because that was the last game they won at Dahlberg!

Guess I will have to check the schedule closer. Thought the game started at noon PST.

Interesting game. The Ladies are struggling a little and now are up 7 starting the 4th. There are some calls that make you say hmmmmm.

MSU trying to lose this one, UNC with a 4 point play after a missing a FT rebound and -one. Then a turnover by the Cats, up just 61-60 with 2:07 left.
