Lumber Jackers of North AZ. Cats should beat em raw.
« on: November 19, 2017, 05:44:36 PM »
Should be good preparation.  From Topeka Journal:
"“Our four guys have been through all our drills and understand our system,” Weber said. “Now, for the rest of them, how do they continue to improve? Habits, technique, desire, understanding, being in the right place. If they can continue to improve and see it, that’s going to help us as we move forward.”

Northern Arizona is 0-3, coming off a 97-62 loss Friday to Arizona State, which is the Wildcats’ opponent Thursday in Las Vegas. The Lumberjacks also have losses to Arizona (101-67) and Embry-Riddle (82-70).

The Wildcats’ strong start has been fueled by defense, which produced 21 points off 17 UC Irvine turnovers in the 71-49 victory. Northern Arizona had 24 turnovers against Arizona State, leading to 24 points for the Sun Devils.

“Their scores have been a little lop-sided,” Weber said of the Lumberjacks, “but as I said, this is about us getting ready, executing and doing the things we need to do.?

This is the worst team we will play this year. They lost to a team called Embry Riddle last week by 12. Seriously.

But still, this one still has some importance to me as revenge for taking Adam Lopez from us.

of note: nau lost to ASU 97-62. ASU also beat UC Irvine 99-78. So, weirdly, by the time we play ASU this week, we will already have played two common opponents. i know transitive property doesn't apply and all, but at least that gives us some sense of where we stand before we play the odious sun devils (my undergrad is ua, so i'm allowed to hate them, ha). best guess for 11/23 is a dog fight and a lot of points.

I saw this too.  Irvine has been on the road a lot.  I hope the means AAU doesn’t play good defense. I am not sure how we can keep up with a high flying offense.  I think it would be good to let our guys play faster this game.

You can't tell much by comparing scores but I don't know how UCIrvine scored 78 points against anybody.

FYI, Irvine and Northern Arizona are part of the same Vegas tournament that we are in with Arizona State. Xavier and George Washington are the other side along with Rider and Hampton. The bigger schools play the smaller schools on their home court. Then in Vegas us, Arizona State, Xavier, and George Washington play in one bracket and the small schools play in another bracket.

Currently teams are allowed to schedule 27 games (OOC + conference schedule) and then can choose to play in one "exempt" tournament (like this one), which will add up to 4 games. Or you can decline to play an exempt tournament and schedule 29 games.

Arizona State plays at a much higher pace than we do and they don't play nearly as well on defense.

kenpom says we should win by 7 and gives us a 72% chance currently to win the game.

Northern Arizona was so bad its hard to take much away from this. Cats forced turnovers on over 40% of NAU possessions and played just hard enough to win by 20.

Fan your last sentence concerns me.  I was expecting better.  I guess Lumberjacks ineptness affected the flow of the game.  Sounded like a good crowd listening on the radio.  Romello White for ASU may eat Wade's turnips.

I can tell you it wasn't a good crowd. Barely any students.

ya looked on tv like there was about 3 people there tonight

playing shitty teams in the non con, like we have all season, isn’t fun or entertaining and does very little for our team other that to help prop up a bullshit facade that the team belongs in an end of season tournament which they have zero chance of competing in

We look sloppy on offense but it honestly looked like we were too jacked up from getting NAU to practically turn the ball over at will.

NAU is yes, easily the worst team we'll play, it's shocking they could hold onto the ball as much as they did, we had several chances for other steals that we tipped out of bounds/couldn't fully keep a handle on.

We just seemed to keep pressing the issue too much on offense, my  :th_twocents:

Bringing that sad sack team to Manhattan should be enough in itself to get Oscar fired.
