    Nebraska Omaha prediction...

    First Post Banner
    Looks like they are 0-2 so far. Losses to Montana St 89-80 and Oklahoma 108-89. They have some good height but that does'nt mean much. I think the Lobos run them into the floor. After the half it should be a slaughter.

    Lobos 105 Nebraskans 75

    Omaha likes to play at a similar pace so I think this will be another high scoring game... 113 - 78 Lobos

    115 - 81 Lobos. I think we’ll have some sloppy play near the end of the half, which will make a 40 point game closer to 30.

    I think this game will be closer than some think but I think the Lobos will win. I am looking at something like 92-85 Lobos. The score really doesn't matter much, as long as we win of course. The real benefit to a game like this, just as it was with BYU and NNMU, is getting these guys some significant minutes playing together, adjusting to D1 for our JC guys, and working on this new style. I think people are looking to much into these early games. Get the win, work on stuff, and plow towards conference games.

    Someone said something similar with Northern New Mexico, but if they had bothered to look at their record this year, they would have seen that they are really bad and give up a ton of points. So, let me ask, why do you think the game will be so close?

    109-84 Lobos

    First, who said that with respect to NNM? It wasn't me, as far as I remember. Omaha is a D1 team. They have good size and a couple of guards that can score. We have 4 JC guys that, while good, are still adjusting to D1. We are still working out the implementation of a completely new system. If Connor doesn't play we will have 2 guys bigger than 6-7 and one of those guys is a freshman. I could go on but I think you get the point. Now, if Omaha doesn't handle the pressure or the altitude, then it could be a bigger margin of victory. My real point here is not the score. My point is that we, as fans, shouldn't really get all that caught up in margins of victory. They really do not tell a whole lot other than one team put more balls in the basket that the other.

    No, I don't believe it was you, and overall I agree with your contention that we should be more focused on the intricacies of the game than margin of victory. However, I was genuinely curious why you believed the margin of victory would be so little. Omaha is a D1 school, but probably a bad one. They do have some height, but those players aren't the most skilled. Over the course of two (2) games, only one of their four (4) forwards averages double digits. In addition, our fast-paced style of play can work against taller players, especially one's like Daniel Myer, a starter for Omaha, who is 6-9 and 250 lbs. And, although we may have many new players trying to mesh and figure out a unique system, Omaha is likely in a similar position — only returning a single starter from last years team. I do agree that margin of victory is much less important than the individual facets of the game (e.g., how well did the team execute their press; when the team was forced into a half court set, how well did they defend; was team chemistry evident on both sides of the court; ect...), however, I do believe that the margin of victory will probably be bigger than you imagine (your prediction even undercuts the betting line by 4 points).

    Part of my thinking was also that Weir said Omaha plays a similar style so I would assume, to some extent, that their bigs are used to the style. We haven't been a very good D1 team the past couple of years either so I am not going to disparage Omaha. When it comes to the betting line and the Lobos, I would be careful. If we learned anything from football, the line is crap when it comes to the Lobos.
