Air Force vs SJSU with a win; Next up CSU

Recommended Posts

Tough AF loss vs UNLV but on to SJSU today
More at www.ricksfalconreview.blogspot.com

A very tough loss by the Falcons in a game they should'a, could'a, would'a won home at Clune Arena vs UNLV but did not in the final 30 seconds losing 81-76. Our cadet student athletes are playing better each week and get another chance this afternoon vs San Jose State University on the road, another team 'aching' for a win.

On to San Jose State: Bottom line a must win for the Falcons. They have two good 3 pts shooters with Welge and Baumann and want to pound inside. But they, like the Falcons, are winless at 0-5 in the MWC and have not put a whole game together. Expect little to no fans in their arena and a game the Falcons must mental come out prepared to win. Key for me is for the bigs to keep doing what they are doing, the GUARDS must find the bottom of the net both outside and inside, take care of the ball and, very important, we must continue to shoot well from the FT where we have a distinct advantage over SJSU.

Air Force Men's Basketball break 24-game losing streak next up CSU; Bitter loss for the Ladys

More http://ricksfalconreview.blogspot.com/

 

The Air Force men jumped out to an 18pt lead over San Jose State University on the road, lost the lead early in the second half but come back to break a 24 game road  MWC losing streak winning 78-71 behind Ryan Swann's 19pts and Pervis Louder off the bench scoring 14pts.  Swann was 1 rebound away from a double-double with 19pts and 9 rebounds.  Click for full stats and storyline http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/undefined

 

The Falcons jump right back into it in game 2 of three of four games on the road as they head up I-25 Wednesday to Ft Collins to face CSU (10-9/3-3) who won on the road at Wyoming 78-73 today.  It will be an interesting game with a CSU team that shoots the ball overall with a better percentage than the Falcons but shoots the three near the same from the arc both at 32%.  CSU will have a slight size advantage but nothing like the last three teams AF has faced (Fresno/UNLV/SJSU).  For  AF to win they must:

-Keep going inside out and keep the pass going with minimal dribbling

-Don't let Nixon or Jenkins get hot from the arc

-Value the ball

-Drive and Cut, Drive and Cut, Drive and Cut some more and force CSU to defend or foul on the cut.

-Whoever wins this game may well do so at the FT line.

 

Go Falcons Beat CSU

I checked the SJSU board as I sometimes do. One of the regular posters said Pilopovich can't possibly be a good coach since he's 31-65 in the MWC. Typically ignorant comment from so many fans of that school. I'm sure the guy who so stated has absolutely no idea about the physical and academic constraints placed on Pilopovich's players.

Let me guess when the last time Air Force had a 3-star or higher basketball recruit, a foreign player, and/or a transfer.. Never.
