Man, I was hoping that after a summer of working with the Dream and Okafor, Thabeet would have improved some. It seems that he is still a little timid out there.
I still can't believe that people were thinking of drafting him. Or they had him going high in the NBA draft last year, wow.
Yeah. I hadn't actually watched the guy played until the tourney. I mean, usually these freaky skinny guys have some novelty claims to actually being coordinated. Like how Bradley allegedly hit .400 in high school baseball. I'm sure I've heard Thabeet mentioned as a lotto pick. What. The. ****? Pure hieght makes him good enough for college, but the idea of him in the NBA is comic.
Have not seen MSU play. How do UCONN & MSU match up ? Spartans will be playing at home which is usually worth a few points .
I get to see a lot of MSU and other Big Ten teams play, since I live in Big Ten country. I think that the Spartans match up well ( on paper) with us. Having seen them play a lot this season, their key is Kalin Lucas. If he struggles, like he did against Purdue, the Spartans will be defeated.

Talk about a stroke of pure good luck. We played and defeated Purdue, a team that gave Michigan State a huge defeat earlier in the season. If we can come out with the same level of intensity that we had against Purdue, and not let up, we might have a chance to beat Michigan St.
Yeah, I'm very confident about the Michigan State game. UConn is simply a better team...and UConn has been excellent on the road all season, so the fact that the game is in Michigan makes no difference.
Im interested to see if Nova can knock off Carolina. I doubt it, because I think they will end up getting in foul trouble guarding Hansbrough and the other bigs and bigger wing players from NC.
Defensively I think that we can defeat Michigan State the only person Im worried about on Michigan State is Suton because he is a big that can step out and hit the perimeter Jumper and he is stroking it with confidence which could cause problems but other than that Im looking for UConn by 10 Not scoring over 75.
