Re: 12/5 A-10 Games

Dayton obviously needs to play much better against Alabama. I don't think a win is out of the question (although the line is certainly +9.5 for a valid reason). Tuscaloosa is not exactly the world's most hostile environment for basketball.

On the other hand, it looks like Temple is going to be my Lock of the Day pick unless there is a non-A10 with a more compelling line, which doesn't seem likely.

Big test for the Niners tonight, if it was in Halton, I'd call an auto-W, but Davidson has played well against us in Belk. The crowd should be close to 50-50 though.

It would be a big win for the 49ers.

Re: 12/5 A-10 Games

Charlotte is 6-5 all time at Davidson, series is 27-11 all time in our favor. Would be a big win for the Niners, we'll need our guards to rebound well on their long shots to help prevent 2nd opportunities. This will be a physical game, should be a fun one to watch.

First Temple game since the season opener that I'm legitimately excited about. We're going to learn a lot about our Owls against Nova.

We seem to be in a early season tournament or facing a few good opponents early every season so this season has been very odd. Been hard to really get excited but the next two games are finally going to ratchet it up. It's been hard to talk about Temple because I don't think many know what exactly we have right now, I really will be interested to see how they perform this week.

Worst level of early scheduling of compitition that I can remember in the Chaney/Dunphy era.

And the worst OOC home schedule since the late 70's.

The crowd won't be even close to 50-50. I think we might get 1000 niners in the building, but I'd be surprised if it is much more than that.

More BCS scalps on the line in winnable games for LaSalle, Dayton, and Temple. Let's do it!

Re: 12/5 A-10 Games

This is a nice test for Dayton. Alabama has terrific guards, but overall an undersized and young roster. I'm not sure you could pick a better place to play a road game vs a tough opponent. People may show up, but half of them will be working on the script for their next Finebaum call.

Hopefully we see a Dayton team that matches the intensity of the home team, and plays loose. If that happens, they can win.

Re: 12/5 A-10 Games

I agree with Adam, its a good test for Dayton and a chance for a decent road win. The crowd will probably not be a factor, which should help ease some of Dayton's players into life on the road.

Re: 12/5 A-10 Games

I'll be very impressed if Dayton hangs tough, but I've had a bad feeling about this game since the first time I looked at the sked. Dilliard has to play great and Vee, too. It won't matter, though, if all the young guys get a little anxious in their first true road test.

Re: 12/5 A-10 Games

Alabama did give a very good Cincinnati team all it could handle here in Cincy, so I agree it will be a tough one for the Flyers to win. However I look for the Flyers to "shock the world", and beat a very inconcsistent Alabama team on their floor.
