Perfect, now find a spot for Eastern Michigan on the 22nd or 23rd and the puzzle is done.

Agree - as long as Bona attracts 1,000 students and three times as many alumni fans to the Dome for what would usually be another empty December home game, SU should keep sending them a guarantee check to stay on the schedule.

Hoping for a better showing from both the team and the fans this year.

Letting a few thousand Bonnie’s fans own the building for 75% of the game was a joke, and the game was just horrendous basketball.
Hard to get on the fans when SU shot like 13% in the first half and Howard and Battle missed at least a half dozen great looks from 3 in the second half that would have put SU ahead. Was a brutal game offensively, that and the ND game last year were unwatchable. Luckily we saw the offense start to come together a bit in the second part of the season with Oshae's and Marek's development and we should restore order to where it belongs this season.

3 SBU fans were throwing chairs after the game. They were sitting in the floor section right behind the SBU basket. Classless.

SBU and ND were so frustrating last season. We didn't even have to play well - just one step above ridiculously ugly - and we couldn't do it.

those two things are connected.
Agreed to an extent. But I’ve been to the Dome enough times to know that the crowd isn’t going to really get into a game like that until it looks like Cuse might lose and there’s 10 minutes left. Being such a reactive crowd in games against non name opponents certainly doesn’t give the team much of a lift.

Hopefully the crowd comes into this one fired up and gives the team a lift and drowns those Bonnies weirdos out right from the beginning.

the boners always play us hard.
Most of the games against them are competitive and close at least for much of the game, but at the same time they’re 3-24 against us. Last year was a perfect storm situation for them to finally knock us off.

Their coach seems to be able to get them to play tough defense, so I would expect they’ll hang with us for awhile. I think this one ends up a solid double digit SU victory by the end though. We look to have quite a bit more talent and experience than them.

And even with that we still could’ve beaten them while playing horrifically if OB just made an easy layup that should be a bucket 100% of the time.

I won’t even get into the charging call in OT because those always seem to go against us.
