A homecoming for a couple Cats (UK pregame notes)


Where and when: Madison Square Garden @ Noon

Where to watch and listen: ESPNU & UK sports network


With game day closely approaching, Nick Richards & Hamidou Diallo will be back in their own playground. The two will have family watching and will surely be a great experience for both players. So, how will the Cats play tomorrow?

If you look at Monmouth’s record it couldn’t be any more deceiving. Monmouth’s record falls in at 2-3, but if you look at the scores to the game it tells the real story. All of their games are generally decided between 2 and 3 points which means that they are always right there but just cant quite punch it home. The most notable loss, if you can have one, is to #23 Seton Hall @ Seton Hall. Only losing by 10, this team won’t put up a huge fight, but I don’ t think it is anything for a very young Cats team to overlook too hard.

What to look for: 

  1. Zone or man defense 
  2. Nick and Hami big time homecoming? 
  3. Sacha & Gabriel growing quiet? 

I think that at the end of the day the firepower of the young talented Cats will be too much for the Hawks to overcome and the Cats end up winning big tomorrow. This team always does its best when people are watching on a bigger stage, what is bigger than MSG?

Score Prediction: 86-65
