    They are ranked poorly in ppg, rpg, and fg% nationally but they did win 19 games this year and went 16-3 in their conference. Had several road games against big conference teams. Got blown out by Oklahoma, Oregon, and K-State, played close games against Baylor, Arkansas, and Iowa St, and beat Oregon St. They have decent size with 4 guys 6'7 or over who play regular minutes. They have 4 players who avg double digit scoring per game, they dont shoot the 3 paticulary well, their best player is is a 6'8 forward who averages 16 points and 7 rebound per game, their a veteran team with 9 guys who seniors or juniros. We should win the game easily especially playing at home, but I wouldnt be suprised if Texan Southern made things interesting.

    Most famous alum: Congresswoman Barbara Jordan & NY Giant DE Michael Strahan.

    TSU was established in 1927 as the Houston Colored Junior College, through its private college phase as Houston Colored College. On March 3, 1947 the state declared this to be the first state university in Houston, Texas State University for *****es. In 1951 the name changed to Texas Southern University. In 2009, 85 percent of the 9,500 undergraduate students are African American.

    We have to play well to win this game. They're a decent team that got better as the year progressed. I'm surprised they're only an 8 seed in the NIT. If not for an upset in the conference tourney final, they'd be in the NCAAs. Lots of upperclassmen (mostly JUCO transfers). We can't sleep on these guys.

    Texas Southern could be the yin to Boulder's yang...or the yang to Boulder's yin.

    Not being racist nor much of Chinese philosopher, I have no idea which one is white and which is black.

    All I'm saying is that there must be a hundred different ways in which Southern Texas ain't Boulder.

    FWIW, the "yin-yang" is not about opposites or extremes. The important thing is that didactic concepts blend into each other as part of a whole. In fact, the line that encircles the symbol is most important. It represents the "superior unifying principle" and defines the morality of the system.

    But, yeah, Texas Southern has a higher percentage of black folks as students than the University of Colorado.

    Can we talk about the game now?

    And the sound of one hand clapping for the TSU Basketball team sounds like what?

    When you grasp the meaning of yin and yang, it is time for you to go talk basketball.

    Ya sure. They dont have any white players. This might expain their difficulty hitting 3's. Although their probably more athletic then us.

    Understatement of they year. Im taking 4 classes, litteraly do not have one single black person in any of them.

    It would be odd if the Wiki entry for CU Boulder was structured similarly as Texas Southern:

    Why do you think that? Go back and look at all of my threads and posts, most of them are not negative. And even the ones that are negative usually have some logic behind them. It is possible to be a fan but not be homer. And im not sure how telling you what classes im taking would prove anything. Anyone could just find that info online.

    Not really if you gave the specific course and level of it, which you probably can't because you're a troll who hates CU.
