I know this is just one of many games going on in college ball over the next week. But for us bruin fans this means something. VIllanova is ranked 7th while bruins are unranked. villanova are getting their hype and pub while bruins are under the radar. But lets see who wins in a week form now when they meet up. Both teams are gonna go into the game with 3-0 records. Its on a neutral court. Who do you guys got and why?
We'll beat you like we did 2 years ago....Fisher, Stokes, Pena are all back from that team. Your guards have no prayer at stopping Fisher and Wayns. I know you have Josh Smith and besides that I don't know you're other big men, but we'll probably just run Smith to death. Truth hurts, but you have to live with it.
also we play Lafayette on the 20th.
when you beat us in the 2009 tournament, Nobody on this current team was getting pt. Let me reapeat. Nobody on this team played when that last game happened. And if you dont know about our bigs like reeves nelson and tyler honeycutt, then it should be a rude awakening for you.
didnt know aout the laffayete game. SO it will be 4-0 vs 3-0.
lol, nobody is worried about those clowns.....UCLA is still too soft for them NYC, Philly and Jersey boys....
i cant wait until reeves nelson says whats up to you guys. It will be little different then nikola dragvic who was our starting big last time we met. Thats like switching from vladamir radmanovic to ron artest.
I think Nelson is/will be a very good college player, but I don't seem him doing well in the pro's. As for the game I'd go Villanova just because I know more about them at this point, wouldn't surprise me if UCLA won.
He can say hi all he wants, I just hope he doesn't try to bang with Yarou because he might break....who are UCLA's guards? I know Lee who is garbage in his own right, but who else do you have. I'm seeing some records breaking from Fish and Wayns.
haha, check out this guy named lazeric jones. He was the number 1 juco pg in the nation last year from chicago. He is currently averaging 12 ppg and 4 apg while shooting 52% from the field. He's arguably better then lee. ANd to think our backcourt is our weak point. Our frontcourt will clown you guys.
Reeves Nelson is going dominate
reeves nelson is averaging 19 & 10 while shooting 75% right now. He is hungry for somebody who wants to bang with him.
I have UCLA winning this game. Yarou hasn't played that well so far and he will struggle against Smith and Nelson.
I love how this Nova clown is talking smack about one of the best programs ever. LOL how about win a few titles and talk smack. Btw not even a UCLA fan (UNC fan).
Fisher is shooting 40%
Wayns shooting 42%
As far as I can see, Villanova guards are garbage.
I feel bad for Lazeric, no chance for him trying to guard Wayns or Fisher. He might foul out in the 1st half...
lol oh no Reeves Nelson dominated CS Northridge, Pepperdine and Pacific.....wow this guy is a force lmfao
And they're shooting those percentages against Bucknell, Marist, Boston U
Tounge-Out-Like you just proved you were an idiot by only showing FG percentage......why do all the idiots do that? there's more to a game than shooting..
Ok you take the great Lazeric Jones and Malcolm Lee and i'll take Fish and Wayns...we'll see who wins
Fisher and Wayns will probably play with the UCLA guards like their little brothers. You notice I say UCLA guards instead of names because they are that irrelevant.
UCLA could sneak up on some people but Nova's guard play is too good to bet agaisnt
your gaurds had better outplay the ucla gaurds by a WIDE margin becasue we are a front court dominated team. Tyler honeycutt>then anyone on villanova
Hahah, always takes one kid to start making it personal online and start name calling, I'm not going to argue with children, later bruh
remember Darren Collison and Jrue Holiday were both better than anybody on Nova.....hmmm care to answer on how that worked out for you?
wow, 1 game to live off. How about, oh i dont know, the last decade, 2 decades, 5 decades...
Listen to this kid...he's trying to compare Nova basketball to UCLA? HAHAHHAHA this guy is funny.
your better off focusing on next wednesday then bringing up the past if you want to compare ucla vs villanova.
wow, thanks UCLA for letting little ole Nova play with you guys and all your history....bless your hearts
i wish this game was tommorow.
maybe one day UCLA will be good again....the past is oooooo soooo long ago....
I like UCLA fans because they brag about their teams 20 years ago because the ones in the present aren't worth talking about. lmfao..truth hurts.
Nova is overrated to me, but I still think they beat UCLA by double digits.
"the past is oooooo soooo long ago...."
Oh, you mean in 06 when we were runner ups?
or do you mean 06, 07, 08 when we were in the Final Four?
Or do you mean 8 ncaa tourny appeareances in the last 12 years?
Let's see, Villanova
4 tourney appearances in the last 12 years
1 final four in the last 24 years
1 championship in the last 25 years
atleast you guys made the elite eight twice in the last 16 years, not bad.
yeah, so long ago. ANd by so long ago i mean we were in the 2008, 2007, 2006 final 4's. The WHole 2 years since we have merely won 1 tournament game while producing more nba players then any other college in america. And dont bother waiting for us to bounce back, becasue we already are back right now. You'll see in 7 days.
good stuff Tongue-Out-Like too bad it's in the PAST.
UCLA fans live in the past - Nova fans live in the present.....one day...oneeee day UCLA will be ranked again, it might not be this year, but somewhere in the future you guys are sure to be top 25 again...trust me
All right, the line is drawn, people claim where you at right now. UCLA or Villanova next wednesday. Pick your side.
Man I can't wait for our Big 5 rivalry game with St.Joe's.....i'm already looking past this one....*yawn*
Nobody is dumb enough to pick UCLA besides you.......people might say UCLA but if there was money on the line they'd put their life on Nova.
Villanova is probably going to beat UCLA. I expect them to win by about 6 or 7.
Villanova's guard play is too good, and even though they don't have any low post scorers really, Yarou, Sutton and those guys all are outstanding post defenders. I think Fisher, Wayns and Cheek on the perimeter will just be too much in this matchup.
UCLA. So-Cal all day
You know how you know your team sucks, you have the screen name "draftDanteCunningham", LOL. We only taling about stars over here on the west coast. Thats like me calling myself "DraftLucRichardMbahAMoute"
TOL is picking UCLA because I called him a name....sorry TOL you can now pick Nova....
perez nice 2011 mock draft.....you know deep down
my 2011 mock is pretty much crap right now outside the top 10, but what about it you dont like, speak your mind?
Nah, I'm a cali kid. Anything Pac-10 I'm going for. Especially UCLA and USC
No I like it you have both Wayns and Fisher on it.
my current mock means nothing. I dont even know whos on it. The only thing updated is my top 10. The rest is just whatever i uploaded form the site. DOnt think i actually like your villanova guys as pro prospects. Allan ray is the rep of villanova guards in my book, all college nothign in the real league.
I see the great Honeycutt is 8th.....whewww i'm starting to shake a little....tell him to take it easy on us please.
I hope you show up after the game is over to man up and admit your team aint on ucla's level. Ratings are so overrated the first few weeks. We'll see whats up on the court. But do yourself a favor and keep your eye on honeycutt so you can see what a real nba prospect looks like. Gotta be hard when kyle lowry is your best example of villanova excellence.
I know i'm going to enjoy watching the great UCLA program vs the weak and mediocre Nova program.....I will be there, i'm going to try and touch Honeycutt so I can know what greatness feels like. I wonder if we can cancel, because we have no shot. I might just go for the VCU/Tennessee game to see who we're going to play in the consolation game.
I think the game will be down to how well the UCLA guards play defensively. And i believe in Ben Howland's D will show up, so im picking UCLA. UCLA front should dominate Villanova's front court because Josh and Nelson are just simply too physical. Tyler Honeycutt is a good all around player that would create problem for Villanova's D. Malcom Lee might not be the player he was hyped up for when he was in high school but hes not bad defensively. If he comes back next week, and play good D on either fisher or wayn, UCLA should have a very good chance.
I'm obviously biased but come on Nova is a laugher. Theres a reason Villanova is ranked as highly as they are and I think they are only going to rise. They had a talented roster last year too and if not for the problems in the locker room, they would have been back in the final four. Novas guards are so much better than UCLA's. I used to be a big time advocate of Malcolm Lee but he continuously disappoints. Nova also has depth at the position outside of Fish and Wayns with Cheek and Stokes. All four of those guards are better than any guards on UCLA. I think the bigs are pretty even though. As far as the bigs I don't think there is a big difference. Honeycutt is a nice player but he's too skinny to hang with the Nova bigs. He'll get his though. Reeves Nelson is better than Antonio Pena only because he can extend the floor a little further with his shooting ability. There really isn't that much else different about them. Yarou is a more advanced version of Josh Smith. Sutton adds extra depth to the bigs with another 6"11 body. He can have periods where he takes over but for the most part is forgotten about on the court. Overall its not close due to the guard play which is huge in college basketball. If UCLA had a huge advantage in the Frontcourt I would think it would be a closer game but I think its going to be an easy Nova win. Once JayVaughn Pinkston is back with the team and James Bell starts going, watch out for this team. Oh ya and don't forget Russell Wooten, 4th year senior, straight beast.
If ucla losses, i will retire my account and never show my face on here again. Thats how confident i am. Those nova gaurds better shoots lights out becasue they are getting nothing easy in the paint.
just kidding, i will still show my face on here. But its more fun if we talk smack
I heard Josh Smith dropped like 50 lbs.....is that true???? cuz he used to be nice until he started he started training with Eddy Curry....
