I think every home game is a "must win" game. If you lose at home, you have to win one on the road to take its place. I'm guessing we need at least 10 SEC regular season wins to be invited to the NCAAT. It would be great to get the first one tonight!

Hopefully, Myers and Beatty will be a little more prepared to play the PG position tonight than they were at Ole Miss. We should also have Evan Hinson back, which gives us more depth on the wings. If Gravett can play, maybe he can help some.

Kotsar must recover from whatever he had at OM that made him play badly. He has to be more productive for us.

We're going to need to do a lot more than win 10 games to get in the tourney. This team doesn't have the horses.

I said ten SEC regular season games. Not counting non-conference wins.

I know. We're going to need a lot more than 10 SEC wins. They won't let us in at 19-12.

Not so sure about that. Ten wins will put us in the top half of the SEC. Depends on how many SEC teams get invited.

And then, the SEC Tournament will be played before the selections are announced, so there will be a chance to pick up more wins.

Missing the NCAAT will be a disappointment. At least for me. Just winning more than they lose will be a bad year.

There is no way this team is making the tournament. Hope I'm wrong though.

Is Gravett playing tonight? If he does, how effective will he be on the healing ankle? This will be key in a game where turnovers will make the difference. Missouri does not do well against a tough, pressure defense.

I don't think we can get 10 SEC wins but if we do I think we have a chance of getting in. The SEC is much stronger this year from top to bottom.

There is no chance of us making the tournament this year. I hope I'm wrong, but based on everything I've seen this year I just don't see it. NIT would be a great season in my opinion with the personnel losses from last year. I just hope we continue to give these guys our support this year.

I'm right there with you.
Just don't have the guard play.

Gravett is good off the bench, but he is not a starting PG. Myers is quick, but seems more like a 2G. Beatty also strikes me more as a 2G.

The team does have some decent shooting with Minaya and Booker, but lacks a guy they can go to when they need a bucket (a al Sin Thornwell/Devan Downey type).

Bigs are good, but not dominant. The loss of Holden also hurts, he at least gave you a leading scorer type guy to pair with Beatty in the backcourt.

NIT would be a good step, maybe win two games to get some post season experience for the youth.

Next year's team has promise if things go to plan with Felder. Pair him with Holden and Beatty and that has the potential to be a good Guard trio. All the bigs are also set to return. Hope Martin can bring in two guys to replace Booker and Myers.

(Hoping for Jermaine Cousinard and Jairus Hamilton...not on the Zion train like many people).

Don't forget about the pure athletic potential of Doumbia also.

Its early. Every team is a work in progress, or regress. Frank thinks this team can be better than they have shown, and he's around them all the time, so he should know. Need Holden back asap! He has the potential to be our best PG. But PG isn't our only problem. Kotsar has to play better. He has to score more and rebound more for the team to reach its potential. I also think Gravett and Myers can be better than they have shown so far. Sometimes it takes a while for players to hit the right gear. The danger is that we will lose too many SEC games before that happens. We really need this win tonight.

I personally haven't given up on this season. I don't think the the NCAAT is out of the question yet but unlike previous years we have to finish the season strong. The potential is there even with our current PG woes. I think the next few games are crucial to how our season ends up.

NCAA is absolutely not happening. We'll be doing good to make the NIT at this point. I don't see us winning more than 5 games in conference

The media said during the CC game the Evan Hinson is the only player that Martin said he trusts in a one-on-one matchup.

I expect Hinson to get some PT tonight and be a solid contributor on defense now that FB is over with.

Frank needs to play Evan a lot more than he has been. Hinson can help this team.

Gravett and Holden out for this game. Holden is now walking without crutches. Both guys are improving.

Myers will start at PG. Beatty will back him up. Having had a couple of days practice since the Ole Miss game, I would expect both of those guys to play better tonight.
