Always a fun game to go to, it's the first time we're getting to see the Racers live this year.

There's generally 400-500 Tech fans at this one so plenty of great seats always available lol.

Tech almost always plays us closer than they should at their place.

Not tonight!

They turn the ball over a bunch so if we don't press and trap the whole game, I'll be disappointed.

I will take any kind of Racer victory. Just hope the Racers make wise shots and keep the turnovers to a minimum.

Saw UK, UL, and SIU highlights on the 6 o'clock news. They video all looked great. Can't wait to see the "middle school mom on the sidelines" video which makes us look like a high school team that Channel 6 will provide tonight. Again.

Those first 8.5 minutes were depressing to watch. Turnovers and low percentage shots. A good team would have us down 12 by now.

I'm seeing more slouching shoulders and heads dropping this game. Also seem to have more frustration out of Ja showing.

Ja has 6 t/o’s. He’s got to learn to be more patient and RUN our offense (whatever that is)!
