well, lets start with the good news. The Bows san their record to a perfect 5-o, but it took the right opponent to get there. Ark Pine Bluff came in 0-4, having lost their games by an average of 30 points. They had been blown out by each opponent, but weds night they actually let at halftime before eventually losing by 7.
The Bows played poorly for most of the night, obviously missing Bill Amis big-time. The outside shooting was missing in action until the second half, and if not for the play of Thomas and Joaquim's 16 rebounds this would have been a loss to remember.
now it gets harder, much harder. The team leaves for a 2 game road trip to Cal Poly and BYU ( that game will be played in Salt Lake). Cal Poly came into Arena last year in a bracket buster game and beat UH easily. And BYU is a top 20 team. Dont be shocked if the Bows come home 5-2.
The good news is that the two games after that are against HPU and Chicago State, and UH should go into the Classic with a 7-2 record, hoping that Amis will be back ( dont count on it).
My weekly radio show devoted to college basketball, co-hosted by Jackson Wheeler, begins next thurs night after wahine basketball at 7pm on ESPN 1420. It will be fun, and i hope you all can be a part of it. Happy Thanksgiving and give thanks that the team is 5-0.
