    I like our chances in this game. Neutral site and Louisville could possibly lose 4 quality players. Russ Smith and Luke Hancock are gone for sure. Harrell and Behanen could be gone as well. We'll lose Austin and Malik. Hopefully Dre stays. We could be potentially starting four seniors. If somehow we landed Vaughn we may actually be favored in this game.

    Wow didn't even think that the public wouldn't be able to get tickets. I was already looking at rentals on vrbo in San Juan. Anyone know if the public was available to go to the air carrier games or similar games?

    I think the first carrier game was military only. Not sure about some of the follow-up ones the next year, I didn't see those on tv. The games in Germany and South Korea looked to only have soldiers there, but to be honest how many people would go to Germany or South Korea just for a basketball game?

    I do recall this though...I remember the announcers discussing it during the game in Germany, but Connecticut had a few players from Germany at the time. I recall the announcers saying the Connecticut players were all given a set number of tickets to the game to give to family members, but the basically all gave them to the German players so their families could see them for a change.

    But then again, with this one being within US territory and close to the mainland, it might be a different story.

    for me this is year not getting Reid really hurts, if we would have gotten him and one other top recruit that we were trying to get i think we would have been actually favored in this game

    I think Josh Martin is going to make us forget about Reid very quickly. Hopefully Carlos Morris is at least as good as Austin next year. If that happens then I really like our team.

    I hope for that as well, but I don't think Carlos will be anywhere near as good as Austin NEXT YEAR.

    That very well could be, but I'm still hoping. He was a top 150 recruit coming out of high school so I think it is a possibility.

    Morris is a 4 star on scout

    I hope so. Would make the progression of this team next year be very very nice, and elevate expectations for year 2 to where I would expect us to be in like year 4.

    Positives: nice exposure for the program

    Negatives: if the Gophs don't play well, that will color the national media's opinion of the team for the rest of the season.
