Coming off a big win over BYU, USD has now paused activity due to a positive COVID test and has postponed its next 5 games.

Picked to finish 4th behind GU, BYU, and UP, the Toreros game at UP on January 23rd, that was to have been televised, is one of the postponed games.

The season is looking less and less feasible with infection skyrocketing to new heights.

It’s not worth killing players or staff so we can watch video.

Call it until vaccinations are available.

The makeup date for the postponed UOP game that was originally scheduled for January 2, is Monday, February 8 at 2pm in the Chiles Center.

(I'm told UOP was in town for the originally scheduled game, but 90 minutes prior to tip-off they informed UP they would not be playing.  They played at GU two days later, and lost 79-59).

As a result of the postponed USD game that was scheduled for January 23, the Pilots have scheduled a scrimmage with St. Martin's College on Sunday January 24 at 4pm.

Still no makeup date for the USD game, and it's possible there won't be one with USD postponing at least six WCC games after canceling two preseason games.  

All UP men's and women's games are streamed at https://wccsports.com/index.aspx

It should be a nail biter on the road in San Francisco this evening at 6pm. The Pilots (3-1) are favored over the Dons (1-4) by 5 points.

I think they can do better, but only if they can overcome the stingy USF defense and score some points...something UP could not do against GU.

Well the team shot 33% as a unit, with Andrew the only one is double figures, and 7 of her 15 points were from the line. Usually  prolific Fowler only got 6 points from the field amd 3 from the line.

Nobody else scored more than 2 buckets.

USF shot 43% and had three players in double figures. Those three only got 6 points combined from the line.

UP had about a 4:00 minute drought with no field goals. USF couldn’t get a bucket for the last 5:15


I’d call this the encyclopaedia definition of winning ugly.

This game was so ugly I put the more enjoyable to watch men's game up on the big screen while watching the women on my laptop.

Two games in row now where the Pilots have had no offense...opposing coaches will not be caught flat-footed this season.

For my money the women's games remain the more watchable, even if the recent games have been ugly, with random brick after brick bouncing off the rim. Regardless, there is something to mattering, to being a factor of sorts, something to winning
The pall hanging over the men's program is too much, and that need not be elaborated.

Oh I hear you, but I was getting much too worked-up and was yelling at the screen while watching the women because they were playing awful but still had a chance to win.

On the other hand, it was obvious the men were going to lose, so I could just sit back and watch some pretty good basketball without my blood pressure rising. Rolling Eyes

Not impressed by the Pilots play over the past two games, those who make such predictions are favoring the Broncos (3-3) over UP (4-1) by 10 points in today's 2pm game.

Don't expect to see the fancy Leavey Center floor today, the game has been moved to the Kaiser Permanente Arena in Santa Cruz due to COVID restrictions in Santa Clara County.  The Golden State Warriors G League team plays there.

Today's game was the encyclopedia definition of a trouncing!

SCU had only 38 points in the paint? Seemed like more!

We gave up after three quarters. SCU was playing the way I expected the Pilots to play this year.

It appeared Santa Clara was doing a good job beating our press. They got a number of open shots. Santa Clara's point guard was making a number of plays, untroubled by our press. I am not sure that we have the speed defensively to continue to press full court as often as we do.
