Re: 11/13 | Nevada Wolf Pack | 11:30PM (ESPNU)

Tough game last night. Nevada is a good team and playing at 11:30 eastern time after travelling cross country was no easy task. A lot of good comments in this thread. My main concern is with Langevine. For us to be the team we all hope for, he needs to be much better than he has been in the first 2...

Re: 11/13 | Nevada Wolf Pack | 11:30PM (ESPNU)

I guess we can forget the talk of Hurley using zone more often. A game where URI was getting killed down low and the bigs were in four trouble was the perfect time for a zone. Ramster: i can't see a scenario where Fatts starts. Instead of Dowtin and Jarvis at PG? The refs weren't great but URI foule...

URI suspended Boswell pretty much immediately, before the charges were resolved. But with Stan, they say no further comments until the legal process runs its course. Interesting.
