RE: The Road To The NCAA Tournament [Men's Basketball]
There's much work to be done by March. I thought by now we'll be rocking and rolling ... I'm not pleased with what I saw after the SU game.  As a basketball (sports) self-proclaim expert, I see many basic fundamentals still missing. Mike get these boys together and while you at it please stop wearing that same ole black striped suit lol ..... I know you have the coin to diversify your wardrobe at Jos A. Bank or at the very least K&G Fashions, I know how much you make sir.  You making TxSU look bad and uh that ain't gon work boss.

What I saw Monday was problems on the defensive side, No defense in the paint., Godfrey had his way 27 points and Murray got no help.  The lane was a freeway to the basketball. It seems like Defense is being sacrificed for offense. TSU has plenty of guys who can score but no guys to play defense. In 14 games Rodrigeuz who plays the 4 (power forward) has 2 blocks & 4 steals.  Southern defense is what made the difference in that game. They double & triple teamed Murray in the paint and contested everything coming down the lane. TSU 's defense has to get better if they want to be in March Madness!!

RE: The Road To The NCAA Tournament [Men's Basketball]
Yes Murray played no defense in the paint Godfrey went berserk scoring at will.But then Murray had his way as well scoring 24 pts which is his average vs Godfrey.Murray's problem is rebounding a player of his size should be averaging in double figures not single figures.When they meet JSU West will destroy him on the boards unless he straightens out that part of his game!!!!

Who will be the dark horse candidate to play in the SWAC title game I say Mississippi Valley St saw them play in my backyard (NJ) vs Monmouth University losing 81-79.The Delta Devils also played well in a loss to the University of Washington Huskies 90-85 recently.

-Murray barely got help, but he seemed more bent on scoring than anything else.  Right now he's 3rd in the nation so I think that's his priority more so than being a complete (offensive and defensive) player. You know Murray is playing good D when he gets at least 3 to 4 fouls .....

-I thought Rodriguez was the 3.  But either way, what got me is that he misses uncontested free throws and still feels comfortable enough to shoot 3s.  No sir, only person I like shooting 3s are Aaric right now.

-Rebounding is scary. They need to get it together. So many unnecessarily missed rebounds are hurting us. BOX OUT GUYS! EVERYBODY PUT A BODY ON SOMEBODY AND WE WON'T MISS SO MANY ... I LEARNED THAT IN 4TH GRADE.

-TSU's offense didn't seem organized. Basically SU came to play and we didn't ... dudes taking forever to run down the court, not moving their feet, lack of energy, bad ball movement, we can do better (no excuse) etc.

You know what ... I think the SWAC bball field is more competitive than I anticipated.  These SWAC schools have a few surprises under their sleeves.

But I still am expecting to hear Texas Southern University's name on CBS's March Madness Selection Sunday this year Smile

RE: The Road To The NCAA Tournament [Men's Basketball]
I agree with you TSU FWD Tiger SWAC basketball among the men is very competitive again my pick for a longshot is Mississippi Valley St saw them play in person in my backyard NJ pesky defenders but lost a close one 81-79 to Monmouth University also Alcorn might sneak and surprise ppl as well.Julius Francis at 6-11 255 must play like a NBA prospect if he wants this team to advance!!!!

Tron44 the major area that Murray needs to improve on is rebounding no player of his size 6-10 245 should be averaging under 10 boards a game.He averages between 7-8 boards a game that is unacceptable.Brandon West of JSU who is among the nation's best in this category 11.1 rebs  will eat him alive when they meet 1-13 hope that game is televised.If I were a pro scout that would be a major red flag against him!!!!
