massey ratings sez...

Samford is rated #253
KSU is rated #285

But...with the home convo advantage...his black box says KSU has a 52% chance of victory and somehow comes up with a final score of 62-60.

KSU hosts mercer wednesday night; the owls have lost the last 4 meetings and have an overall 9-12 record against the bears. mercer won last year in macon 64-48.

massey's black box says that mercer (#151) will beat KSU (#267) 69-59. however...he says KSU has a 23% chance of pulling the upset...and this year gianolla is healthy....

...and gianolla played 39 minutes and scored 29 points on 12/18 shooting and 5/5 from the line. street played 37 minutes and scored 23 points. johnson (39 minutes) and poole (28 minutes) each added 14 points.

owls in a rout; 92-64 (outscoring mercer in every quarter) and move to 3-0 on the year in games i;ve attended.

mercer has made it to the ncaa tourney the last 4 years, so this was a big victory.

next game at the convo is dec 8 against ga tech...will history repeat itself?

Feels nice to have one basketball team above .500 for a few days. What’s Massey’s black box saying for the Georgia Southern game on Sunday afternoon?

LADY OWLS ROLL 95-69 -- REWRITE RECORD BOOK.

Owls go 39/65 (60%) from the field. 39 field goals beats the previous record of 37 set back in 2011. 60% field goal percentage beats the record of 55% which was set back in 2012.

The Owls have now scored an incredible 95 and 92 points in their last 2 games; record is 96 points set in 2017.

This team is starting to remind me of the glory days of Colby Tilley.

Next victim -- UNC Wilmington.

Nice little winning streak the women have going here. UNC Wilmington and Campbell are certainly both very winnable. Would be great to head into the Navy Classic on a five-game winning streak.

KSU (3-1) vs UNC Wilmington (2-3; 2 game winning streak).

Massey has this as KSU (204) vs UNCW (250). However...his black box gives UNCW a 64% chance of victory with a predicted score of 68-63. Must be one heckuva home court advantage (see below).

Last year KSU (9-22, 4-12 -- and 1-14 on the road) vs UNCW (18-12, 11-7 -- and 13-1 at home). I think those road/home records are quite revealing.

Last year the teams had one common opponent -- NC Central. KSU won at won 78-54 (with 5 players scoring double digits and another with 9) and UNCW went on the road and came home with a 89-82 victory.

This will be a tough one -- GO OWLS!
