MBB: App State at S.Alabama 8PM Tonite Mobile

Unread post by asu66 » Thu Jan 03, 2019 12:35 pm

The Apps at 5-8 face the USA Jags at 7-5 for a positive start in the 2018-19 Sun Belt season. These are presently teams headed in opposite directions.

USA, under the leadership of new head coach Richie Riley, opened the season with a 43 point drubbing at Auburn but slowly feasted on cupcakes, built their confidence and now own wins over Chattanooga and Tulane and nearly upset a strong Richmond team on Saturday evening.

The Apps on the other hand, have struggled mightily against everyone with a D-I pedigree and completely collapsed in a Sunday afternoon game at St.Louis.

Unless the Apps have had a complete makeover in the last four days, this one could get ugly. The Jags have found their game; the Apps not so much.

Watch on ESPN+ at 8:05 PM tonight...

If it happens to the Apps, it happens to me!

Keep feeding Seacat and let's hope S. Alabama stays under 40% shooting.

Well, they're starting to look a little more familiar. 2 pts in the last 7 minutes or so, lead down to 3. Make that tied after a lame attempt at a defensive rebound leads to a three pointer for the Jags. *sigh*

Now Jags up by 3. Ugh. 1 min to go in 1st half.


This is my very generic signature added to each post.

14-0 Jag bender to close out the half 36-31 Jags at the half. This is a team that just can't get out of their own way.

Poorly coached. It’s obvious.

Why has USA owned us in b-ball since we joined the sun belt? They are never even in the top half of the conference. The Jags and the Cajuns are the only teams we haven’t been able to shake.

The Shabazz green light costs us in every single game. He had cut the lead to 4, then dribbles down and jacks another 3 without a pass, the long rebound goes the other way, and USA gets an and one...then we don’t guard the 3 on 2 straight possessions. Gotta get active hands on d

Forrest needs to sit and let Delph have a chance. JF is in a slump and has cost us several chances. Let AD have a shot.
