I'm headed to the game with my family tonight. I'll have some thoughts and opinions afterwards. And probably more stuff tomorrow as well. If you are not at the Knott and want to post your thoughts on the game, feel free to do so.
I am excited to see how the Mount plays tonight after snapping the losing streak at Sacred Heart on Saturday. I think that win can be the start of something very good for this team. I also may get the chance to say hello to former Syracuse guard Allen Griffin, who is on the Terrier staff for a second go-around.
The Mount has controlled the series recently with the Terriers, but this team can not be taken lightly. The Terriers have won 2 out of 3, including a conference game with St. Francis PA last week, and a non-conference tilt with Columbia earlier this week.
This is a guard oriented Terrier team, so it will be interesting to see if the Mount can get anything going inside from the likes of Shawn Atupem or Raven Barber. Also, St. Francis likes to play a half-court game and if the Mount gets out and runs and gets some buckets in transition it should be to there benefit. I expect to see improvement for the Mounties tonight - and I expect to see a win. I'll take the Mount, 70-57 in this one.
