Green Bay basketball, will you be my Valentine and deliver a big home win? If not I am going to need a lot of the $2 Bud Lights that they will be selling!
OU has their big guys rolling. If GB tries to guard them wing plays again I might scream. Also, I think they owe Mr. Newman an up close and personal 40 minute visit. You can't let that dude go off again, stay right on him and contest everything. A little defensive pride might go a long way.
This is a big opportunity to take control of their own destiny. The team plays everyone they are chasing and 4 of those games are at home. If they have any fight in them it needs to come out now.
Getting to Detroit opens up a chance to salvage the season. The arena is going to be EMPTY. The league has pretty much given up on this tournament and tickets are down to like $30 for both days as general admission only. That tells me the crowd will be light and nobody will have an advantage. Crazy stuff has happened in Detroit the last 3 years, get in position to make it 4 for 4!
Nice win! Keep climbing those standings! But on a negative note, the Resch looked really sad tonight. Wasn’t tonight Bud night too? Looked completely empty. Perfect example of why a majority of the games should be at the Kress.

Thank goodness they had cheap beer because that was not a well executed game by either team. Don't get me wrong I am very happy GB won but that was a tough one to watch.
I will say that I thought GB played hard and well on defense especially in the first half. In the second half Oakland went JV practice mode and was just making dumb plays and GB didn't have to do much defensively.
Three straight charges and Sandy going ice cold at the line kept the game much closer that it should have been.
GB had plenty of clean looks, need to knock them down on Saturday.

A win is a win. That was ugly. The game had no flow whatsoever. At least it was Bud Night. It was nice to see an opponent struggle to make shots for a change. GB did a great job battling Hills-Mays and Brechting underneath. Nice to see Patterson finish around the basket and build some confidence. A win on Saturday vs Detroit will keep us in 4th after the weekend- time to frustrate both Davis' and get it done.
