i think CJ Henry is more of a forward, but I could be wrong on that.
I don't think he's going to be an answer to our problems this season...he'll be so far behind on the learning curve once he gets totally healed (his foot is still not right, from what I understand) it'll be tournament time & not the time to test him out.
I just want some consistency. The team we saw in the 2nd half against UCF can get it done...the 1st half, notsomuch. If we come out against Tulsa like we finished UCF, and maintain it the whole game, we won't have a problem.
If we're lazy with Tulsa, though, they'll probably beat us. They're 2nd under us in CUSA, and you know their crowd will be just as ready.
We've been SO spoiled the past couple of seasons, that we're not willing to accept a single conference loss...it's a good problem to have; I just hope that people don't totally give up on them if we do drop one this year. It doesn't mean we suck, it just means we're not last year's team.
This is still a second round, if not a sweet sixteen team (once they gel some more), and with a lot of luck, they could still get to the elite 8. A lot of luck is what it took for the '06 and '07 teams to get to that point, remember.
None of the teams this year are as great as they were last year - unc keeps dropping games, and they were the only ones who didn't have to basically start all over. If anyone shouldn't have an excuse this year, it's them & their whiny-ass hansbrough.
