Must. Win.

Both for tangible SLC ranking reasons and for player/fan confidence levels.

I can't believe that we're having to call this a "must win" at this stage of the season. Unbelievable what transpired last night!

Not sure how I can be so down on a 11-3 team but we need more than a win. We need a convincing win. Losing to SLU was awful.

I'm ready to play now. I'm eager to get the SELU game in the rear view mirror. It's haunting me.

If Shannon Bogues only sees the court for a freakin' SIX MINUTES like in the SELA game, this game WILL be close. I STILL don't understand how one of our best offensive weapons was used (NOT USED) like that!! That still steams me!!

Time to dust ourselves off and keep on trucking.

Honestly the loss to SLU reminded me a ton of the second conference championship season under JC Harper where we blew. 28-0 lead at halftime to lose to Texas State. About as ugly.

Until we regain confidence (winning 4-5 SLC games in a row) this team will be fragile. Our defense is good enough to beat anyone in the SLC. Period. We've got to have more variety in our offensive sets. That is why we lose "some" of these type games. We are predictable.

Nothing beats the embarrassment of losing to McNeese State last season

I've had family in town, went to Vegas etc, so haven't been on much. I'm putting SLU behind me and moving on.

Nicholls can light it up. There's no such thing as a "must win" game at this point, but this is a crucial game in my opinion.

Agreed. Getting a game on Nicholls would be a good start.

I hate Wednesday games because I can't attend them (at least not in the first half). Every midweek home game this season is on Wednesday. Totally blows.

Defense needs to come ready to play for 40 tough minutes. Nicholls is all about playing fast paced on both ends.

I thought Keller made a really good point in his press conference today. The fact that Nicholls plays on the Louisiana side and SFA on the much stronger Texas side (where most teams face the other side's teams only once instead of twice), they have to be thinking if they can win this game, they're the favorites to win the league.

I think it might be a little early for that talk but this is as big a game as it's possible to have in the first week of January.

Good point by Keller. It's huge. Nicholls looking very tough.

I did catch a good portion of the previous game. SELU looked good and took advantage of SFA's many mistakes. The officiating was pretty awful and one-sided, but SELU outworked us for sure. I am uncertain of what this team is doing to start off the season but they deserved to lose by that margin. They looked terrible.

G-A-M-E D-A-Y!!!

One game in the last 10 days (a stinker at that) has been rough! Amazing to think we're going to get 17 in the next two months. Ready to kick some colonels in the privates.

Looking at the Prediction contest I may know the answer, but do you think there's a better chance for us to win by 15+ points or the game to come down to the last possession?

Nicholls is the top scoring team in the league, but also in the bottom half of every defensive category. While averaging 15 turnovers per game.

We can win this game if we can control the fouls (Colonels shoot 72% as a team from the line) and play good perimeter defense.

I think so too, just making sure he will see enough court time to get that many.

Not complaining about his lack of playing time btw. If Keller sees something, I'm happy to see him take charge of the situation. A lot like Leon last year...

Been a while since coming to a game at WRJ. Last time was probably 2011. Man, this court looks awesome. And the screen is amazing.

Shannon Bogues, best player on court.

Makes his 6 minute outing at SELA all the more strange

Solid pace so far, attacking well. Haven't found our three point shot but haven't needed it yet.
