Win or lose, I love the fact that this game is at home on a Saturday at 4 pm. I get my morning to handle chores, the little guy gets his afternoon nap, daddy gets to QC the beer supply at The Well beforehand, and we don't need a sitter since we'll be home before bedtime. Boom.

Awfully nice to get UNI in Fairfax two years in a row.

Look out for Chip Rank (another good name) coming off the bench for his 16 ppg

I'm feeling good about this one contingent on Allen and Arledge's health.

We took this team to OT last year. Plus they had 2 starters graduate.

Crowd prediction? My guess is 7,000.

Actual prediction that matters:
GMU: 71
UNI: 63

Moore with 6 assists.
Edwards with 6 water bottle re-fills on the bench.

They play Iowa State and VCU after our meeting. Should give us an idea of how we may fair against those teams.

I think the team wants to put on a better show for the home crowd this weekend after battling with AU. We win at home -

Mason: 65
UNI: 59

If Allen and Arledge both play, I say we win by 12. If neither play, I say we win by 7.

I think Moore starts in place of Edwards.

Biggs, you really think Arledge and Allen are only worth a 5-point difference? I don't see how we beat a good team like UNI without those two and Copes. This isn't Lamar.

I'm in this camp....no Allen or Arledge...means its a pickem at best...and that's giving us home court advantage.

I think our horizon is higher than the past two years thanks to growth and maturity....but missing those 2 and Copes? Too much missing....

Any MVC team has great shooters on their team and can burn us deep. HAVE to play perimeter Defense to pull this out. Sherrod needs to realize he is the best player on the court and drive at hoop and get fouls. Marko needs to assume UNI is Nazi Germany and hit them with some sky rockets! BOOM!

The mid-major term is more useless today than it was when it was first coined. Way too many exceptions, especially now that the big east is basketball centric again.

It's a total guess, of course. Spotting 7 points without them means it's a close game that we pull away from by a couple points in the last few minutes. 12 points means we're in control in the last 10 minutes and we win by double figures. I think that's the difference between having those two and not having those two, and it's just my personal opinion on how much depth we have combined with playing at home on a Saturday.

Hopefully we'll hear about the status of those guys soon, but I'm guessing it won't be until Saturday.

According to Sagarin, we're a slight favorite (~1 pt) although it's early in the year so that would be pretty unstable and the spread wouldn't factor in any injuries. We're ranked 108 and NIU is at 66.
