Yep. Tulane is a dangerous team and the Coogs need to be focused even with the game against WSU this weekend.

Reminds me of some of my high school days where we got off the bus after a long trip, got changed quickly and started warming up


Trap game, indeed!

First thing I thought of was the days of high school . Being from a rather rural school, we had to make several trips that were in the 1 1/2 - 2 hour range, mostly Silsbee,Jasper and West Orange. We would leave mid-afternoon and arrive just in time for the JV to warm up for about 15 minutes. Back then they didn’t have much in the way of protein bars or meal replacements so might have a candy bar before the game. Not too many visiting teams came away with wins.

Fun fact: We heavenly recruited Melvin Frazier. 247 had him going to UH in their crystal ball predictions.

Coogs move to a 3-2 zone seems to be working. Hopefully some shots will start falling, we are cold and Rob isn’t getting calls at the rim.
