Know your enemy- Toledo Rockets

I keep wanting to call them the Mudhens for some reason... anyways, here's a writeup from their site regarding the game tonight.

The Rockets come into this game winning 3 of its last 4 after starting the season 0-9. They're AUful... got beat down by UNC Wilmington 64-42 on December 30th. To their credit they have played some good competition in Illinois, Temple, College of Charleston, and Cincinnati.

Here's a link to their season stats.

Bottomline: they're not a good shooting team (41.5%), can't score (59.5PPG), and turn the ball over a lot (16 per game). Leading scorers Malcolm Griffin and Delino Dear average 10.2 PPG. If you're looking for a positive on this team they do hold opponents to 44.3% from the field and are about even in the rebound war.

Prediction- destruction. This should be another beat down. Green should dominate inside, Hines should come close to another double-double, Davis should continue his hot shooting at home and Releford should be able to e=penetrate with relative ease. Bama by 27.

Game time is 8PM EST (7PM CST). Be there, find a radio, or find a stream online to listen to it. I'll be honest... I probably won't as the beach is calling.
