    Who would have thought Troy would be in the running for the top spot of the east division of the Sun Belt Conference? How about that, Chris. You're one game behind WKU. This coming Saturday night is a big game when WKU visits Troy. I will remind you that WKU shellacked Troy at WKU 99-76 earlier in the season!

    I think Troy beat FAU tonight too. And in case you missed it, WKU had a national TV game against South Alabama--and won, of course!

    I know, I know--you all only care about football. But in some ranking services, WKU's football recruiting class for this year ranks #1 in the conference. Aren't you all building a new arena for basketball?

    You maybe sorry you created thread after the next game. :elmogrin :tongue

    I had no idea Troy was playing that well right now. It will be interesting to see who pulls this game out. :elmogrin

    Yeah, I probably just jinxed it! WKU plays goofy on the road--at least this team does. We lost like six seniors from our Sweet 16 run from last years NCAA tournament and are some what inconsistent.

    And even though we beat number 3 ranked Louisville by 14 points this season, it seems like sometimes this team forgets how to play.

    I didn't know Troy had turned their basketball season around. After you mentioned it, I went and looked at the result of their schedule. They have won like 10 out of the last 11 games. This is not the time to play Troy. They started the season in bad shape, but they have rebounded. Whether they have enough to beat WKU remains to be seen. I guess we'll know in 5 days. :elmogrin

    Well, you guys still got the conference tournament where you can seek revenge. I don't think the home court advantage will come into play there. We still got a couple of weeks to see how things pan out. :woah: :idunno:
