TitanCentral.com's Key's to Winning: Stop Varnie Dennis. Try to get him into foul trouble. I saw him last year and he was a good looking player then. And if the Poly boards are a good source of information they say he has improved tremendously over last year. Someone must have improved because this team should not be better than last year... but they are. Babacar will have to do better, scoring-wise because I'm sure the SLO coaches know who they need to stop. The good news is Pape can pass. We just need someone to catch it.
We need to continue to crash the board, cut down on turnovers (15 or less) and play some defense, we have a shot. We can't let them shoot better than 45%. 40% and under, we win.
