Am I the only one watching this game like I'm scouting Iowa?

Nice defense. Switching it up. Hey we know its gonna be tough with either team. I just hope we have the motivation especially when the media already has these teams blowing by us

Cady on D vs. Iowa scares me. They are too quick. Only thing Iowa has done wrong is foul, Tenn was in the bonus quick.

Neither of these teams scare me. I think UMass can handle them both...at one time.

I don't like Iowa's different zone looks. We'll need to score against it.

I do think Iowa will embrace a fast game, and I think we can compete with them well in that regard, just have to make shots and rebound.

Was Iowa playing zone prior to this game? Tennessee doesn't look ready for it

Defense reminding me of GW, which gave us fits.

Tenn's strategy makes sense. Iowa blows their load early. Tenn will make a huge run in second half of second half, mark my words.

Agree about Cady. That's why its paramount Putney and Samson come to play, solid and smart. Maxie will play right along w these guys

Before watching either teams I wanted Iowa but after watching both play so far, I think Tennessee is a better match up

We are so much better than either of these teams. I really hope we come to play Friday.
