The Hogs (25-9) remained hot down the regular season stretch, and after their trip to the SECT championship game, secured a #8 seed in the South regional. The Hogs will play #9 seed Seton Hall on Friday in Greenville, SC. Game times to be announced later this week.
It is exciting to get back, and making the tournament annually needs to be the minimum.
Despite the loss to Kentucky today, the way that that we are sharing the basketball right now is impressive. Inside-Out, spot up, motion offense…you name it, they are executing at a high level right now. This team is not lacking for confidence either, and Mike has done it before at UAB as a #8 seed…advancing in 2004 past #1 overall seed Kentucky.
And for the record, we are not opposed to a little ‘chippy-ness’ like we saw from Dusty and Moses today in Nashville to spice things up a little.
Let’s make some noise!!! Should be a fun week…enjoy it.
