I didn’t realize all 5 players are the same height.
Only because Rob’s man-bun makes up the difference…
I guess Galen had a growth spurt to catch up to daddy.
Branham says that tonight is the first time this season that the Coogs get to watch their intro video (H&PE arena didn’t have a video screen). Says the team is excited that they can see it before the game.

rockets down 3 5 seconds left our posession
Pace and scoring favors us big time so far. I know it’s close but there is no way UCF can keep up with us if we keep shooting like this.
Definitely. They aren’t going to shoot 75% from three the rest of the game.
People arent here to hear about the rockets.
