    Tulsa 2/18 12:00ET ESPN8

    Noon starts how I loathe thee. Tulsa comes to town this weekend. Currently 12-13 and 7th place in the AAC. Junior Etou is the guy to stop still. I think if we can contain him it might be an easy one. If he goes off it'll be close. Tulsa is on a 5 game losing streak.

    I don't agree with the Big East middling thought. I believe we are much better than that. We have depth, an inside game, an outside game, and a variety of guys that can have a big night on any given night. I think a Sweet 16 run is very achievable.

    As far as I know Cumberland will only miss today.

    Sweet 16? I want way more than that!

    Is Cumberland only out one game?

    Tulsa's really back-sliding, but a pretty good game for the Cats, especially without Cumberland (curfew violation). A key for this team in the tourney will be to hold onto big leads and not let the opponent go on big runs - but limit them like they did today, otherwise they are going to get bumped early. Another issue is their perimeter defense, and lack of creation from the guards (including passing). The Cats really lack a dynamic PG who can create and defend. Just a lot of one-on-one guys who can take it to the rim.

    I thought this was Cronin's best team, but I'm not so sure now, this team would probably be a middling Big East team at best possibly.

    Any ways, if they play like they did today, a Sweet 16 appearance isn't an unreasonable goal.

    The very next game, the Cats hung 82 on UConn. Of the other three games, one was at SMU, who extended their sub-70 defensive streak to 19 that day. The other two, UCF and USF were just weak shooting games. I wouldn't get too worried about it.

    Too often, fans view lesser shooting performances as bad performances overall. That's not necessarily the case.
    This is a good point. I am not worried or down on the team. I just wondered if something may have been found against us. The SMU game seemed like SMU had six guys on the court the whole time. Their defense that day was so quick.

    I just can't remember a UC team giving up so many wide open 3's as they have this year.

    Just wanted to point that the game is not on ESPN "The Ocho" It's on ESPNU. Can't believe no one spotted that.

    The last Tulsa game is where I started worrying about the rest of the season. I don't mean in a "the sky is falling and we stink" sort of way. Rather, prior to that, we were scoring at about an 80 point clip. Then, we got to that game and what should have been an easy romp, and all of the sudden, it seemed like Tulsa had found a chink in our armor. I told a friend after that game that we might be in a bit of trouble moving forward as future teams were going to study the heck out of that tape to see if they could replicate Tulsa's success. Sure enough, now we can't get out of the 60's. Hopefully, Cronin is able to do some mid-course correction or the rest of the season might be sluggish and cumbersome.

    Tulsa is staying at the Westin Hotel on the 7th floor. 2/3 of the team crammed in on one elevator.

    When we played them they did not seem that bad. That is a tough 5 game stretch for them though, UC, SMU, @Memphis, Houston, @UCF. Hopefully UC can be rested for the game Saturday.
