But we beat both handily.   Canisius wasn't even that close until the end and same with win over UTM.   I think we got a good shot at upsetting ND Sunday.   They lost lost to Radford last nite.
I think you meant to post "almost lost" to Radford last night, which is an accurate a$$essment. The Fighting Irish only won the contest by 3 points.

If we can avoid thescoring droughts, which have been an issue for Calhoun's squads in these Power 5 games, then I think we can keep it close.

Be the Irish!

YSU is 188 in KenPom rankings. They’re the third team in the Horizon League behind Purdue-Fort Wayne at 156 and Northern Kentucky at 180. All other Horizon league teams are higher than 200.

The Penguins did quite well for a mid major in the transfer portal and the team is still meshing/building cohesion and flow. As long as that happens (and that’s still an if) - arrow would be pointed up for us when we enter Horizon League play.

Notre Dame at 4pm.  Did you see they had to hang on to beat Radford the other night.  So i believe YSU has a chance for the upset.  Any thoughts?

Canisius beat St. Bonny the other night! Not that comparitive scores matter, but ask yourself was Canisius really that bad, are we that good, or is Saint Bonny worse the Golden Griffs team we played!

The game was on the ACC network so if anyone gets that Spectrum has it.
