I agree about the 09 MU team making the Final 4. It was heartbreaking that they had to play the postseason without James, but I think their weakness in the front court put a ceiling on how far they could have gone.

I was already bearish about Nova this year, but losing Gillespie would make it real hard for Nova to make the second weekend, much less the Final 4.

Since 2009 Nova's only strategy is lose in the first weekend or make the Final 4 anyways so it's one or the other.

I don't think the 09 team had the defense to make a final four.

The courage to change the things I can,

Top 10 offense, 52 in defense.  Would have been a bit of an upset to make the Final 4

I agree, especially interior defense. Tall teams generally beat them up.

Would have taken some luck, but they had a gear offensively that few teams in the country had that year.

The thing about the 2008-09 team is that yeah CLEARLY losing Dom hurt.  But they had a tough end to the BE season - they ended up losing their last four.  Do they beat UConn with Dom?  What about @Pitt, @Louisville and Syracuse?  They're still losing at least two out of four IMO - at best.

They missed him so much defensively against Price and Flynn that I think they win those two home games. I think they beat UL too.

Definitely take down Cuse. The others are debatable but that game against cuse was prime for taking just needed that little extra push

Clearly Wright is unable to make adjustments to that "strategy".

Nova in the BET beat us at the buzzer and we shot horribly.

Dom you gotta think shifts that.

He was already worked over by Scottie Reynolds in the second game so I was unsure if he'd change that. Forgot we beat them the first time

I would love to have taken my chances with that team.  FF?  Who knows?  But it would have been nice to find out.

These two plus Nova were

4 pt game, OT, 1 pt game.

Can't call them locks. But with Dom, its pretty safe to think we would win those games.


Well, I wasn't including Nova in the first BET game.  So we are in agreement.

What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Touche.  I'd take my chances as well.  Dominic would have killed quite a few heads of the snake in the tournament.  They were small but tough, experienced, and played with a chip on their shoulders.  That was a dangerous, dangerous , team that caught one of the worst breaks (no pun intended) in MU hoops history.  And do not underestimate the leadership of Dominic James.  Tremendous human being and a phenomenal ambassador for our University.

Injuries are part of sports ... but that doesn't mean anybody has to like them. Sucks for Gillespie and Nova.

UCONN might be better than I thought.  If both of their guards play well maybe they could make a run in the tournament?  Creighton and Nova are going to have probs imo.

UConn is my pick to win the BET. They are 9-2 with Bouknight. Might be the league's best bet for a second weekend team, too.

That’s a good call, brew.

But only if they can get past MU, of course!!
