SFA (3-1) vs. Quinnipiac (5-0)

WHEN: 11/25 (FRI) 1:00P.M.
WHERE: Northern Classic (Montreal, Quebec)
WATCH: Be The Beast ($25 for the tournament access)


Heading out of the country for a Thanksgiving tournament is beginning to be something of a tradition for Keller's teams as the Lumberjacks head to Canada for their third foreign tournament in 5 years. They are going coming off of the high of beating South Dakota St. on the road. It was the only Quad 1 game on their schedule to start the year and they made the most of their opportunity.

Now in Montreal, the team will get to learn how to say "Howdy" in Quebecois. They have three big midmajor games in three days. The first (on paper the easiest) is against the undefeated Bobcats of Quinnipiac University. Like Alcorn St., this team is stronger than their KenPom ranking having run through their schedule so far knocking off a decent Rhode Island team along the way.

The Bobcats are smaller than SDSU but they are led by a strong pair of seniors Matt Balanc (Sr., G, 6'3") and Ike Nweke (Sr., F, 6'7"). Five scorers average double digits. The team is balanced offensively and defensively but they take 25 threes a game connecting on 40%. They are atrocious at the line.

The Jacks take almost the fewest threes of any team this season. Playing up tight to the basket has been our strength and expect that to be similar in Canada. Defense on the perimeter will be a priority as well as speeding up the game play of the Bobcats.

The next three are tough, but the Jacks have the talent to make the most of their trip.

Axe 'em!

Looked at the Quinnipiac lineup. They have a coupe of PF that are listed at 6'7". Right now that's a little more than we have 1X 6'9" (Nana). The defense has been stifling so far. Keep that up and we can win another one against a solid mid-major.

Watching the warm ups and court looks oval. Hope that's not the game camera. Lol

Yes it does look oval. Strange.

I think the Jacks will win big today. Just don't think Quinnipiac has played a team as good as SFA yet.

Thirteen turnovers, 0-4 three point and getting out rebounded by five at halftime. This game very winnable by we have to play better.

Turnovers, Nana not showing much, not hitting our shots. Jossell not at the game.

Looks like this is going to be one of those head-scratching stinker games.

Getting outrebounded 41-24. Our three leading rebounders are all guards with 4 each. Their leading rebounder has 15.

We shot 32% from the field and 10 from three. How the H*** did we shoot lights out at SDSU and can't throw a rock and hit the ocean today???

Playing like this we will not win many games. Going to be a long season. Just shocked.

We scored 9 points in the last 16 minutes of the game.

With the limited options we have inside, you got to figure that one of these was coming.

. Wondering the same. We clearly missing some post presence. Missing Jossell. Day Day is about 40%. Just a bad game. Got to get better

I guess we mis calculated the exchange rate from American points to Canadian points.

A peek at our next month. A lot of solid basketball teams ahead. There's no sleeping on a single one of these teams. WAC play is long and difficult but these next 8 D1 games are where this team builds its identity. We need 5 wins to tread water. 7 or 8 and we know we have something special. 4 or less, it's going to be a long year.


Well bringing this back up. So far we're 1-2 through this right game stretch. We've lost to two of the three lowest ranked teams. Of course we beat the highest ranked team too…

MTSU is tough. Up tomorrow.

Unless you know something I don't, which is probable, DayDay is much better than 40%. According to him anyway.
