and what I like about this matchup.
So got a little way close to that.
Um, he's a stud.
He's gonna be great in the tournament, but I feel like Rockets is the formula, you know, on defense, like he's Lamar seems 68 small forward who been walking mismatch.
But we have a quasi is bubble and Ron Harper given Caleb McConnell.
Um, there we go.
We're throwing bodies at him.
We got bodies to go up again.
So I just I think, will be below his point.
Average things, actually 18.
I expect them to come in around, like, 13 tonight.
And then there's the third player, the big man walk ins, who he was like, six for 6 15 points.
The first half he was e only had, like, two points, and I accept not have, like, two points, but not to have the 15 in the first.
I will probably get like, you know, probably around 10.
He's a 69 big, but but, um, shack Carter, since you've been in the starting line, is playing with a lot of swagger.
And then Miles Johnson.
His scoring hasn't been there, but he is just He's playing great.
Defense is of late.
He's not, hasn't been a couch with a lot lately.
Planes and sound defense.
So I believe that Myron Jones probably going to get his three pointers off Lamar Stephens.
Keep him under his average.
And then there's the big man walking.
So there's three main players I'm cool with against Penn State.
I mean, it's it's a road game.
It's their five point underdog for a reason.
It was six and 1/2 Open Rocket is not, You know, I just supposed to win this game.
I just really like our chances tonight.
Um, Geo Baker has returned to form Geo.
Bigger is playing some great, volatile eat this past month.
I feel like is one of the better stretches, and then you team that I would.
Ron Harper, who gonna say in the last three games, probably dropped that like 50 55 points.
We need that tonight.
Ron Harper's been a great player and a closet full of senior year knows what it takes Kingpin Stony Brook small school, but knows what it takes.
And he's been having big shots.
We have three players who are playing great balls of lead.
And when Geo Baker was out and Rutgers had that little run, they did be Penn State when Joe Baker was out.
And why did they get those winds A D? Penn State and almost beat Illinois on the road? Almost beat ill on the road because their role players stepped up and their role players in this two for seven or 2 to 5 stretch of disappeared.
So I don't know.
It's just therefore Qi scores role players.
Only one has been going off at a time.
It used to be two or three.
That's Jacob Young Spark off the bench.
Caleb McConnell, who was a mid range God but has been just struggling as a leader.
I call first half Montas because it seems like you only scored in the first half, but he hasn't been doing that even lately.
Um, he played well at Maryland, but that's really it.
Legally, he's struggling cable.
McConnell's give me Like what? One for five.
It feels like it's game.
If this is even making a bucket and Miles Johnson's offense, he's never been like that gifted.
But he's missing dunks and stuff as lovely.
Um added those four players.
We need two or three to step up like they were in the middle of the season, like this isn't something new.
This isn't something I'm asking you to do. Have the blue.
They were playing well, and in this two for five stretch, they haven't been playing well.
Hi and then you factor in shock.
Carter, another big who has been starting as a leak to keep Miles Johnson out of foul trouble.
He's getting you 4 to 6 points, and that doesn't really sound like a lot.
But then it's just 46 extra points you're not expecting.
I'm expecting six from him to me.
Um, and every point counts.
And then there's Palm.
Okay, the only freshman who was coming a long way.
As of Lee, he's really taking charge.
He he still looks weak defensively, man, but I mean, he has the size.
He's taken it to the holy being more aggressive.
Um, and it's just Rutgers Role players were playing good and their stars were lacking and they were winning.
Now they're stars are like shining, and I'm calling Joe Baker, Ron Harper and a quasi stars because they're good players in the national level.
And if those three continue to play the way they're playing, they just need the role.
Players step it up a little.
If they step it up a little, they'll be fine.
They'll get these winds.
Um, yeah, I mean, they could have.
They became close with Wisconsin.
They played a horrible first half.
Same thing with Ohio State.
Like those air to bona fide tournament teams.
Michigan got the best of them. Maryland.
Rutgers was in it like till the end.
I think it was tied 50 50 and ended with two minutes left handed, 55 50 miles at Kingman.
They just the first half while they were winning by, like four, he didn't even play that well.
That's the thing like the They gotta capitalize on opportunities.
So many turnovers.
With this Rocket team.
There's so many miss layups.
But I mean, I just feel like they're due to play a complete game to return to form.
They have Penn State's number.
They won in Penske like two years ago, and this is a completely different Penn State in pencil on, the Rutgers used to be bottom tier of the Big 10 but, like Penn State is fighting for one of those double buys.
And Rutgers is fighting against the torment first time since 1991.
So I just think it was a different team, like this Rocket team has some swagger they have.
They know what it takes.
They've won at this building.
They came so close, they barely they could be in minutes.
I mean, a Maryland on the road.
They couldn't be in Ohio State on the road.
They could be in Iowa underworld.
They could be in Illinois on the road.
Those air four opportunities really just missed it.
But that's not just any different, because tonight I just I think they take care of the rock.
They make their layups.
I just think they could limit Lamar Stevens, who's gonna be the best player on the court.
But I think if they just throw body that he's not me or the bully ball People.
Rockets are size they have now.
They keep pounding nails.
I just want to put this video out there cause a lot of Rutgers people bugging lately like an I t.
At first when the season started, told me we're making the nights He signed me up.
Now we make the N i t I'm almost gonna be, like, slightly disappointed because we're right there.
We should make the tournament, but you make it stormed by winning road games and you win tonight.
You win on the road against a ranked team, I think.
Pencil trying 16.
You went on the road.
Look, I didn't need, like, the players also to relax the fans to relax.
Um, we can't turn the ball over.
We can't play scared.
This is This is our time We came the Rutgers we believed in Coach Blake, and we're gonna pound them.
So I just wanted to say that I want to touch upon one.
I let you all go.
Um, I like this firm in team getting getting four points going to UNC Greensboro.
We're going to the Southern Conference hash tag to bid.
So con, I like this conference a lot.
Lawford, with my team last, you actually had them in the Final four.
Just cause why not like it's a bracket.
I get to decide what I want and Walker with the ball and experiment.
This team's a pretty good team.
They're going to U N c g who u N c g beat Furman about a month ago in ferment.
You know it's hard to sweep the team.
It's senior night in U N.
G. So just added pressure.
This firm in team their bigs are like 67 60.
Put their lengthy ish and Greensboro wants to like dominating the post.
So we're gonna spread out UNC Greensboro, and Furman's gonna take advantage.
They're going to shoot.
Um, they play slow.
But Fermanagh nly on Lee runs fast, breaks off steals and they get a lot of steel.
So we're going to get some easy buckets.
We're gonna take the crowd out of it.
We're gonna spread them that we're gonna shoot.
And I like this firm in team plus force.
That's two dogs I like tonight, like Rutgers plus five.
Um, you know, we're in the rugby shirt, So what else do you expect? But I don't usually make it public when I like the Rutgers matchup because I feel like it. Buy it.
And I like Herman Plus four.
Um, I think these two evenly matched teams and the that for to be like, you know, plus two plus one or something.
I think for me the better team.
So, um, we'll let you all go.
Thank you for listening. My raspy voice.
I'm just getting off.
Maybe like a cold or a Sinus infection or something.
I don't know, but I'm gonna get better.
Um, it's gonna start tonight celebrating dub.
So, uh, piece Al y'all at Cole's Korner k o w a L s corner with the k, k o r and e r.
Give me a follow. Give me.
Send me a tweet or something.
I'll link back up with the All in? Yeah, goose out.
