Tass is from Estonia, which is kinda funny since TASS is the top Russian news agency...

I like our chances here...Kuhse will have XJ or Rob bird dogging him, and Tass is the kind of center Trayce has success against...

They have 4 guys that average in double figures with no one over 13 ppg, so they're balanced...

2 common opponents, Notre Dame who they beat by 3, and Wisconsin who they lost to by 5, both on a neutral court...

This will be the best defensive team we've played by far.  They are #9 in DE in KenPom.

Common opponents:

Wisky beat them 61-55 at St. Mary's.

They beat Norte Dame 62-59 at ND.

How have they fared vs other top defensive teams?

I agree we should match up fairly well. Hope we have our tournament jitters out of the way and come out playing some better basketball. They will not be able to handle the athleticism of Geronimo. I see a close game but think this team has learned how to win over these last few weeks and feel more comfortable getting over the hump and emerging with the W.

You beat me to the punch...

Both the ND and Wisconsin games were part of the Maui Invitational (which was actually played in Las Vegas)

I am pretty sure that ND win was in Hawaii?

I'm super concerned for our energy and stamina for this game. 

These travel issues are not a small thing. I don't know about you all, but I've taken red eyes before and was a complete mess the next day.

Looks like we’ll have another close one! Or at least hope so. Their top rated D scares me as we have trouble scoring sometimes regardless, but this team fights and doesn’t give up. Let’s get it done. I would bet my arse they aren’t as good as Michigan, Illinois, or Iowa.

Just curious if their D is so good statistically because of the level of competition they play???  I know they beat the Zags once but I’m not sure how good the rest of the conference is.  It’s going to be a tough game either way.  I like what Woodys building here, and these aren’t his recruits yet.  Exciting times ahead!

If the travel doesn't take our legs we're going to beat this team inside-out. Our money line-up + Geronimo is defensively capable of shutting them down. They're a soft team and for whatever reason I think Kopp will give us 12+ points.

Good point. I just assumed the statistics take into account SOS a little bit. And all the analysts act like they get after it on D. 🤷🏻‍♂️
