TitanCentral.com's Key's to Winning: Play the exact opposite as they did against USF. That means put the ball in the basket, play perimeter defense, set some picks, make some free throws and not turn the ball over. A lot to change in five days but all this needs to happen or the Titans fall to 0-3 and their confidence will be shot... even more.
Make or break game? We don't think so. It's a long season and it's way too early. The Titans need to look at the next five or six games as a chance to improve heading into conference play. In this game improvement can only be based on a win or a loss. There is no moral victory against a bottom-of-the-barrel WCC team such as Loyola. If they win, they've improved. If they lose, they haven't. The Moral victories will have to wait until next week when the Titans face Baylor and Wyoming on the road.
