    UC Basketball

    I've been able to watch bits and pieces of the UC hoops game tonight, and while UC is playing a nobody in Texas Southern, I like what I'm seeing. This squad is young and is going to have its ups and downs, but it's becoming apparent real quick that we should start to see a whole lot more ups than we've seen in the last two years.

    Yancy Gates and Steve Toyloy look like an excellent combo in the paint, something UC has desperately needed for a couple years now.

    It'll be nice to get a few early wins and head into the Las Vegas invitational against Florida State playing well and with some confidence.

    They're much, much more talented than last year. So far they look like they're way ahead of where they were last year, but it's tough to get a good grasp on how good they are until they start playing some better competition.

    This should help people get in the mood for some UC hoops:

    It makes my browser (Firefox 3.0.4) crash. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come.

    As the video gets along I am thinking 'how in the heck did they not show Y clip' as its going in chronological order.... of course, come to find out, it ends the video. I was really confused how it was omitted until the end.

    Yep, I thought that too the first time I watched it.

    I was in the student section directly behind the basket for Logan's shot against Memphis. I could probably pick myself out standing in the bleachers if I could ever see that view in high def on a 50 inch widescreen.

    BTW, this is one of the videos UC plays before home games this season. Great stuff, IMO. Too many current UC students are probably unaware of great UC hoops, but hopefully that'll turn around starting this season.

    Re: UC Basketball

    Yep thinking the same thing I know we have not played like this for awhile but just to see blowouts is nice. every game last year was a grind them out type of game. I am hoping the way we play early gives us the energy we need to thrive once big east play comes around I am looking forward to it and plan on going to a lot of games with my cousin! GO UC FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL!!!

    Re: UC Basketball

    UC is participating in the Global Sports Classic this year, and the tournament has kicked off already. UC started with their victory against Western Illinois, and up next is Coastal Carolina down at the Shoe.

    The two games I'm looking forward to are the Florida State game on November 28th and the follow-up game with either Cal or UNLV on November 29th. While none of these teams are going to be powerhouses, it'll be nice to see how UC's vastly improved talent can do against teams that are a bit better than Texas Southern and Western Illinois.

    UC is a real sleeper. They have a ton of talent, and it's all young.

    Re: UC Basketball

    The talent level is an order of magnitude greater than last year's team. However, I'm not sure it's going to materialize this year. UC is really going to struggle to contain some of the quicker guards in Big East play. Playing without a point guard will really hurt this team.

    Nevertheless, it's going to be a joy to watch this team grow. I believe they have the talent to make it deep into the tournament, we just may have to wait another year to watch it happen.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
