they are on a 9 game win streak, zero percent chance a coach like sampson overlooks them
but as a fan:
this is going to sound cocky…but its hard for me to get too worried about sdsu
at first i was extremely worried about them too, but after watching tons of film on them, i think we should be able to handle them
i know they say they return a player from injury in their streak but teams beat them with him numerous times before his injury…and as much as they talk about their injuries no one mentions Nevada lost one of its best players for the season right before sdsu went on its streak.
they are tall, but their 2 main bigs are boney/stick thin. there is no way i see them getting post position over our guys… i think post points will be there all game …they are similar sized to temple and we had a plus 30 rebound margin on them.
Nevada plays all guards, new mexico has a shooting pf as it’s big…they only played 1 good team in their streak that actually had bigs, boise, and boise out rebounded them and Boise’s bigs aren’t athletic or game changers
their guards arent fast and arent great from the 3 (1 is decent thou)…they like to dribble penetrate but galen/corey can handle that
their bigs can shoot, but we have handled shooting bigs well so far (cincy/temple)
i think they can contain some guards, i don’t see them containing all of them
there are 2 legitimate ways we lose: we get in deep foul trouble(their bigs are frail)…or their bigs shoot 5+ from 3…at that point if bigs are hitting shots like that, the bball gods decided who was going to win before the game.
