Sideline video of last play:

Not to overlook Cornell (1-4 on the season) on Saturday, but next week begins an important stretch for the Cougars:

Nov 29 - at LSU
Dec 3 - PVA&M
Dec 6 - at Arkansas
Dec 10 - Rhode Island

  • LSU is 3-1, but got absolutely decimated by Wichita State yesterday 82-47. Still, they’ll be at home and looking for revenge.

  • Arkansas is also 3-1 with their first loss coming Tuesday at Minnesota where they lost 85-71.

  • #21 Rhode Island is 4-1 with their only loss coming against #1 Duke on Sunday, 75-65. They played the Blue Devils close and are going to be a load when they come to Hofheinz.

Honestly, coming out of that 4 game stretch 3-1 would be great and show that we are for real. 2-2 probably marks us as a bubble team come Tourney time.

I’ve seen Rhode Island against Duke and they’re big time! Even though they lost to Duke, they are a solid team. Only reason they lost against Duke is because they started to play a lot of one on one instead of playing as a team on offense. Arkansas has a pretty good team as well. And LSU is ok, but they will be a challenge at their home.

Great win vs Vermont. Announcers think they (Vermont) have a shot at the NCAA’s this year. UH was playing their 3rd game in three days and Vermont brought their A game in a neutral court. Plus, Vermont has size up front and can rebound well. Nice win for the Coogs!

Vermont is the favorite in their conference and ESPN has them projected for a 14 seed this week so they aren’t bad. Nice win as they just hit their shots as CKS said; wasn’t bad D.

I think we beat LSU, Arkansas will be dicey, and Rhode Island could go either way. Need a big crowd for that one; hope we get it.

Someone needs to show Rob how to properly do the Go Coogs hand sign.

He tends to go with the Houston sign a lot.
