    As for the game, we have got to hit the defensive glass HARD and we have to make our shots.

    Make shots lets our defense get back and set.
    Grab defensive rebounds doesn't let UNC score easy buckets against an out-of position group.
    We will have to win this as a group, not by trying to match up talent individual by individual.
    You may be right Cat----maybe you know him better than I do--- but honoring the player that is the only reason Roy brought his team to Cedar Falls is certainly not a "Gimic."

    Agreed. I was a pretty surprised. Thought they'd open -12 or so.

    Roy could name him as a starter, have him introduced, not send him out and live with a 1 FT Administrative technical, I would imagine.
    Better idea: We line up for the center jump and intentionally allow Paige to score a layup then they allow us to do the same.

    At least he didn't sign the letter first. Sorry, are we past that?

    Well said. Would have been a fun atmosphere for him, too. Plus side is he got to see his family.

    Just reading through some of the UNC boards they seem to be a nervous bunch. I guess I would feel the same if UNI was ranked #1 in MBB. Hopefully we can do some sort of recognition for Paige even though he will not play. Feel for the guy. He's had a heck of a career.

    That really stinks. Feel terrible for him and, selfishly, I really wanted to see him play in person.
