Just a reminder that this game will be shown locally on cox sports CST (Ch 37 or 1037 HD) in the New Orleans area. Not sure about other stations.

Anyone feel like this game will be any different from the first? Will they find a way to tone down the Russian guy who seemed to alter any and every shot underneath? Gotta hit from outside to keep him further out. Gotta pass clean.

If no CST, you can download the Southland app on the Roku and stream it to your TV via that.

Coaches obviously ignored last weeks game and never made any defensive adjustments.

Fouls: UNO 6, UIW 1 (and we missed both of those FT's).

We seem to have held them down for quite a few minutes but didn't take enough advantage of it offensively. Besides those FT's missed by Green, we had a bad pass by Travin and then some good outside shots by Charles and Robinson. Gotta get a bit more room.

Getting a little cushion while the russian is out.

Keys to winning: Zeno, shoot less. Charles, shoot more.

8 pt lead with 2 mins left in the half and we go scoreless only up by 2 at the half.

Not sure how but its not their big guy giving us fits under the basket in our offense. One guy has 4 blocks. Yet they seem to get to the basket fairly easy in spurts when UIW has the ball. Interior D mostly just not handling them or fouling (which seems to be heavily favoring UIW).

Also, sorry to say that Zeno has been a deficiency on both sides of the ball in the first half. May come down to FTs and our outside shooting staying hot.

On another note, GOOD NEWS: UNO women CRUSH UIW, 72-45. contrats to them, now lets go get 2.

Things I don't understand: how UIW can easily get under the basket and make point blank shots and UNO can't. UIW comes out of the half break very confident and quick.

Things I don't want to see again: Travin and Rosser yelling at each other at the 16 min timeout.

UIW seems to be changing their offense to get the big russian involved again. Don't like the way this half has started.

Mike Zeno is just not having a real good senior season.

Good Zeno is a really nice asset for a winning team and was a critical part of winning the Southland tournament last year, but we've seen a lot more of the turnover machine, jump shooting Bad Zeno this year.
