    How do we stack up against Bama in basketball?

    Alabama is a great defensive team....but they can be spread out and be less effective. I didn't like CU's spacing early against Kent State...I thought Levi ran to the basket too soon on some breaks...he needs to get outside on fast breaks and give Alec and Cory more room to drive.

    CU's biggest problem going into the game will be stopping the Green kid inside from Alabama. The good thing is that he gets in foul trouble, so if we attack the basket I like our chances. We will have to shoot better than we did against Kent State.

    I like our chances if we defend better. If we get over 70 points, we win.

    As long as the team gets over the flu bug thats going around and everyone is near 100% I say we pull out the win. Big nasty defending team but like Texas was in the second half they are susceptible to the drive which we have three very good players who do that. Roberson is going to have to keep stepping up and play like he did against Kent.

    As much grief as people give Nate, I hope he recovers and can come back. I like LK off the bench better than as a starter.

    His numbers are way better off the bench too. Be it a mental thing, or whatever, he does really well when he plays limited min off the bench, that is where he has his 20pt games.

    Keep them off the offensive glass and avoid turnovers.

    If we do that, we should win comfortably. We're a lot more skilled than they are. Most teams haven't been able to do that, though. They're tough and very athletic.

    I'm no expert, but after watching Bamm v. UNM, and last night against Miami (FL), I think they just might be the team to beat in the NIT.

    How will CU play on the road? That is the key metric. CU has not done well away from CEC.

    Might be the same key for 'Bamer.

    Watching them last night they look big, fast and athletic. CU is going to have to play very well to beat them.

    my Vandy buddy says they have really fast hands on D. this says to me that one factor will be how the refs call hand-checks on the perimeter, on the PG starting the O across midcourt. have to be careful in the passing lanes, work hard on contested rebounds and loose balls.

    he also says they are a bad FT shooting team.

    But they do a bit better on neutral sites.

    BTW, I wonder where the refs will be from?
