Ft. Lewis is 5-0 and also won 77-69 In OT at Wyoming in an exhibition a few weeks back.
For real? Yikes...
Nobody listed over 6' 9" on their roster, Morse (Jr. Guard) is hitting almost 50% from 3. Top 5 scorers are guards all 6' 4" and under plus 6' 9" F Haldorson (local Highlands Ranch kid transfer from Wyo).
Finally making a home game!!!
The boys take care of business and this is a win. They start looking ahead to CSU and they will have a very unpleasant week of practice.
Awesome. Defending the three just happens to be our specialty.
My prediction for the game is something like this:
The Buffs start a little slow, Dom picks up a foul, throws the ball away, Wes travels, and Morse hits a couple of threes. The Buffs are down 9-4 and Tad still hasn't called a time out with 17:27 remaining in the half! PAHI, syco, and the gang start calling for Tad's head, wondering why Dom and Wes are still on the team, screaming for Yaz and predicting a loss, telling us all "I told you so, we're gonna lose to frigging FT LEWIS!".
The Buffs then go on a 22-4 run and coast to a 87-53 victory and all is well in Buffland for a few more days.
Opportunity to work on perimeter D. We need every opportunity we can get to develop there. Post should do what was done to UNC.
If I am not mistaken Haldorsen really wanted to go to CU. His grandfather was Burdette Haldorson who was a significant part of CU's basketball history. There were some hard feelings when a scholly offer didn't come.
He then went to Wyoming and from there transfered to Ft. Lewis.
You are not mistaken. From his bio when he was playing for the pokes:
Personal: The son of Brian and Karen Haldorson, Austin was born on Jan. 30, 1994, in Littleton, Colo. He has two sisters, Marisa and Brooke. Austin is the grandson of University of Colorado All-American Burdette Haldorson, who was named to the 1956 and 1960 U.S. Olympic teams. Burdette is a member of CU's Athletic Hall of Fame and his number (22) is retired. Austin is majoring in business administration at Wyoming. He was also recruited by Nevada, Air Force, Denver, Saint Louis, Princeton and South Dakota.
This could be a great game for Wes to gain some confidence snd get on track offensively. I could see something like 18-13-6 from him tonight.
Doesn't look like I'll make it to the game tonight. Will be able to watch, though.
These guys LAUNCH 3's to the tune of more than 20+ in a half on occasion, they also play a lot of zone defense. If they are hot and we sleep walk things could get interesting.
Darth's post changed your plans too, ehh?
Roast? That mustache is glorious!
Sometimes Jelly's facial structure reminds me of Hellboy
I'm loving Dom tonight
Dom playing really well. Wes = no show
I can't wait until we play some consistent competition. This team plays to their opponent in the worst way...so flat tonight, especially after that initial line shift.
I do appreciate being able to hear Tad well during this broadcast though.
some lazy defense and rebounding
Yeah Salcido's 'stache game is on point.
if we lose to these assholes... im gonna lose my mind... **** fort lewis
Up 2 at halftime. Holy ****. I cannot believe those threes at the end of the half. Geez.
FLC playing like they have nothing to lose (which is true, game doesn't count on their record), CU forgetting to adequately defend the perimeter.
Yikes. And this is an exhibition for FLC.
The only thing keeping me sane right now is knowing that Tad is more pissed off than I am about this defensive effort.
Expected a look ahead type of game, but this lack of effort on D is not cutting it. Tad needs to tear this team a new one.
They are shooting 55% from the field and 54% from three.
