    Yeah... For finishing the season 4-7 and 1-6 on the road, we sure stumbled bass-ackward into just about the best bracket possible. UTA on the other side of the bracket, along with a stAte team that couldn't possibly recreate its awful shooting that allowed us to beat them. Also on the other side are low seeds like Coastal and South Alabama that seem to be a bad matchup for us.

    This will come down to shooting. In our three other games in NOLA over the last two years, we haven't been able to buy a jump shot. We'll have an offense-minded opponent for our first game, no matter what. If we would get GaSt in semis, look no farther than the box scores for our two games to see how we do against them on a good shooting day vs. a bad one.

    I would think GagST will have to beat ULL, no easy task.

    It would be amazing if someone could knock off UTA early

    The ESPN announcers for the GaSt game said we were leaving straight from Atlanta to New Orleans, is that true? Are we going to be there all week?

    I heard that and was wondering the same thing.

    I hope UTA makes it all the way, unless we make it to the championship game. UTA has the most complete team in the conference and would be the best rep. for the Sunbelt (other than us of course)

    If so, is that a good move? I mean, this is a team that does not like being on the road. We lost the second game in 3 of our 4 SBC road trips (and the one we won was only by 2pts early in the season against a very weak ULM). These boys like home cooking.
