Anyone worried.....

#1
About Wendell White?? I was really ready to drop a nice chunk on UNLV, but after seeing him wincing at the end of the GT game i am def worried.
I know he's "probable" and def gonna play, but sore ribs for a BBALL player aint no joke. W/O White, UNLV has no chance in hell to beat Wisconsin, Especially if Kruger shoots like he did last game.....

Re: Anyone worried.....

I totally agree... I don't think we will know how bad that injury is affecting him until at the earliest a few minutes before tip when they are warming up.... if he is healthy I love UNLV as well....

Re: Anyone worried.....

Another question i have is with Umeh, This dudes been on a tear the last 3 games...Can he continue carrying the team... i honestly think its gettin inside Kruger's head. Last 2 games he's
2-19. Bad time to run into a funk, against this Wisc defense.....
I'm slowly talkin myself into goin with Wisconsin. Damnit.

Re: Anyone worried.....

I have loved UNLV since the line came out.... Not because they beat my Jackets, but because they are playing IMO the worst #2 seed in the tourney... I think Wisky should be a 3/4 seed, but that is just My opinion...

UNLV has the athletes and the quickness to win this game, and Lon Kruger is a very good coach. He does not get outcoached in game by too many people.... This may end up being a stay away game and play it at the half....as I have already played the Nevada Wolfpack to cover against Memphis....

Re: Anyone worried.....

Wisconsin will have to score more than 45-50. I have hated them since I lost on them against Ohio St. last weekend. UNLV I hope wins by 15.

I think Umeh can and will do what it takes to keep UNLV in the game... I have been looking at the season stats all night on these 2 teams and Kruger has hit a few stretches like this where he couldn't hit water if he fell out of a fukkin boat.... but he always responds with a few good games in a row as well.. very streaky shooter... when he comes out, he takes fewer shots and hits for a high percentage.. that tells me he is a smart player and knows his limitations and is willing to work the ball and dish it to teammates unless he has a High percentage shot, then when he starts feeling it he opens it back up

Re: Anyone worried.....

no doubt, Lon Kruger is a freakin fantastic coach. One of my favs.
I'm not sure what seeding has to do with anything...It's just a factory number handed out so people can talk about it.....hasnt got anything to do with the game.

UNLV def has some athletic kids. But Vegas knows this isnt gonna be a track meet. The O/U's 125, thats gotta tell ya something about the expected tempo of this game.....well i'm talkin myself in circles. Think i may hit the first half under and choose a side at the half. If Kruger still has problems with his J, and White doesnt end up playin 100%...and Wisc controls the tempo like Vegas is tellin me they are....This Under is a solid play in my mind. Too many things have to go against me for this not too cash.

Re: Anyone worried.....

And it is at the United Center with those tight ass rims... No shot how soft it is will get a roll... Makes every shot a Clanger.... I swore after watching TEch/UNLV and seeing every shot that didn't swish Clang off the rim, I would never take another over in that building... never seen anything like it....

And when I brought seeding up, It was meant to be in general terms cause if Wisconsin was not overrated IMO then UNLV would have to play a better team like a GTown and Not a Athletically Challenged Wisky team that relies on Physical defense and a Methodical offense... They are very beatable and UNLV got a Great draw by having to play the weakest of the #2's IMO instead of Memphis, GTown and UCLA

Re: Anyone worried.....

Pops69 has some buddies who are big UNLV fans and are in chitown for the game today. this is what they said...

"from those that have talked to white today, he's in considerable pain, will be shot up for the game and will try to play. play unlv at your own risk. they are not the same team w/o him at 100"

UNLV +220 on the ML is what i have in my pocket

Wisky -6.5 for the 2nd half and i can possibly cash BOTH tix

Re: Anyone worried.....

lol:LMAOI probably will get backdoored!

But thats why i think ankle injuries are worse than say a rib. A rib injury is basically pain management, and with the cortizone shots they get it is bascially just dealin with pain...an ankle actually hinders a bball players most important assett, laterall movement,speed and vert jump...

Re: Anyone worried.....

Carmines is fantastic!! The Trop really stepped it up over the last few years.
Excellent night clubs, shops and restaurants were added. They had to so they can compete with The Borgata.
