Expect more zone than previous games.

The biggest thing the Birds have going for them is that our game yesterday wrapped around 12:30 PM (Cayman time), while there's was around 7:30. They are on very short rest.

Burford, Sandage, Knight, Lewis, McChesney starting.

URI played a close game yesterday and only goes 8 deep. They had 5 guys play 25+ minutes, 3 of which played 29+.

One guy went off for 34 (7-10 from 3), another had 18, no one after that had more than 9.

I like Lewis in the normal course of the offense versus running isolations

7-5 almost 8 minutes into the game. Two heavyweights going at it.

Why Petrakis always flip the ball to the guard before he reaches him for the pick

We are getting into a habit of dumb fouls

Reach ins, poor positioning, and offensive screens

Brutal .. simply brutal. We gave up 9 offensive rebounds and had 8 defensive rebounds

He had position and then snow plowed him out of bounds that's why he got the foul
Guess I missed that part. Didn’t see anything to warrant a foul. My main problem with the refs this entire tournament isn’t what they are or are not calling, but how slow/late the whistles are. Way too much watching the result to decide if there was a foul.

Lots of dumb fouls but more than a few head scratchers. DB getting called for a proper box out??
Yeah, there was another one where Sandage was on the ground and the URI player was going up for an offensive rebound and landed on him and Sandage got called. Shot two FT to their nine. 12 fouls for the Birds, 5 for URI.

2 fouls for Lewis, Poindexter, Kasubke, Knight, and Sandage.

Pretty solid defensive effort, but man, the offense remains nowhere to be found.

A positive: Only four turnovers and I believe just two of them were the Birds just throwing the ball out of bounds, I'd call that extreme progress since Monday.
