I hope Dashawn McDowell, Jonathan Wilfong, and Leo Kontopoulos get a lot of minutes for this game. They need some more seasoning and the starters can use the rest. I believe we will need them in the tournament, even if its to give a foul and defend for a few minutes.

I love it, 4-0 in the AAC, we should absolutely destroy them and give the starters plenty of rest for the roadshow in UH and UCONN. PonyUp Fellas!

Who thought adding Tulane was a good idea again?

So this game isn't on TV? Does espn3 archive games to be viewed later? ie: the following morning?

This is definitely going to be an RPI killer, regardless of how many we win by. We need these bottom teams to step up and elevate their programs. No reason that Tulane, USF, and ECU cannot be at least a top 100 program.

Having to play a team sitting at #275 this late in the season is real gut punch.
Probaly won't happen...BUT...maybe it will!!

At this point, I'd be happy if ECU, Tulane, and USF could just be top 200. In the long run, top 150 for everyone in the conference.

I just don't EVER see Tulane or ECU being even decent. Tulane was such garbage add to the conference....

If they keep sucking [deleted], I hope we can boot them ala Temple form the old Big East.

I think Dunleavy was a great hire there. Former GM of the Clippers, father of current NBA player. NBA Coach of the year, coach of the Lakers, Blazers, Bucs... lots of ties to sell players.

Sound familiar?

Word from Tulane fans is that he thought that the current players were a big heap of trash when he arrived - he just needs to bring in his own talent.

He is starting from a worse place than Larry. But nowhere to go but up...

Dunleavy has three sons: Mike Jr., who plays for the Atlanta Hawks in the NBA, Baker, an assistant head coach at Villanova University, and James, an NBA player agent

Yeah, but Dunleavy hasn't coached a team with a winning record since 2006 and has an all time record of 613-716 at the NBA level. He is not even in the same solar system as Larry Brown.

I've give Tulane credit for a creative hire, but I just don't see a high ceiling for that program playing in a high school gym.

How is Dunleavy's recruiting going?

In a word: tall.
