Re: Big Sky Conference Play

Another nice win for the Bears going 2-0 in conference. Those home wins are super important and it seems they are getting a decent turn out at Butler/Bank of Colorado "arena".

Big Sky Conference Play

Nice win by the Bears at home against Montana State. Sketchy at times and they still need to improve at closing games out (OT should not have ended only up 2) but it's great to start off with a W.
Knecht was a beast at the beginning of OT.

Re: Volleyball in the Big Dance!!!!

The Bears had set 3 but really let it get away. Would have been nice to take one from them (we had it in us) but having the coach at home with COVID really hurt. Just another outstanding season though and a lot to be proud of. Certainly our best D-I team sport at UNC, consistently competing for conf...

Re: Volleyball in the Big Dance!!!!

Man, this Washington State team has some outstanding blockers up front. The 1st set is getting away from us. Hopefully the Bears can bounce back.

Volleyball in the Big Dance!!!!

I think we actually got a favorable seeding/draw lining up against Washington State in Waco. The bad part: "Due to COVID-19 protocols head coach Lyndsey Oates will not travel with the team to the NCAA Tournament. Associate Head Coaches Pi'i Aiu and Jon Haruguchi will serve as co-head coaches.&q...

Re: Congrats to our Volleyball team - Tied for Big Sky Champs!

Yeah, that was a heck of a comeback. This teams shows a lot of heart, will be interesting to see what seed they are (hopefully good enough that they are not matched up against a 1 or 2 seed in round 1).

Re: Congrats to our Volleyball team - Tied for Big Sky Champs!

Just watched the semi-finals game against Portland State. UNC is on to the Big Sky Championship game for the 3rd tournament in a row. I hope Lindsay Oates is the highest paid coach at UNC, she really has been tremendous for the last 16 years.

Re: UNC @ Abe Lemon Classic (Texas)

Hey, we got the back door cover with a strong 2nd half against, what I assume, was their bench but kind of cool none the less.

Whelp, the 1st half didn't go so well but not shocking going against one of the best teams in the country.

Congrats to our Volleyball team - Tied for Big Sky Champs!

The ladies won the regular season Big Sky championship (along with Weber State). Both went 13-3 in conference play. Unfortunately, we don't get the tiebreaker in the tournament so we will be the #2 seed which may mean a tough semi-finals matchup with 12-4 Portland State.

Re: UNC @ The Rainbow Classic

Holy cow. 20% from 3-point range and 39% FG rate overall is a recipe for a loss regardless of who you are playing. Our star players were really off (by looking at the box score) so I assume the UH-Hilo defense was all over Hume and Kuxhausen which would be my strategy against us.

Hilo is not D1, so today should be 3-0.

Another nice thing about beating Hawaii:

"I don't even know what State Northern Colorado plays in." That is hysterical.

Re: 2021-2022 Women's basketball thread

Watched the 2nd half of the CSU game and it was a disappointing loss (aren't they all?). They had the lead the entire way (but only slightly) but it got away for them in the 4th quarter when CSU started bombing some 3's and we couldn't respond. We went away from going inside and I think that cost us.

Our Bears are at CSU tonight. Hopefully they can take out the Rams (or keep it close) as they got throttled at Arizona State in their last game.

Re: UNC @ The Rainbow Classic

It was worth staying up until 2:00am for that game. I wish it wasn't as it would have meant that we buried them instead of Hawaii really turning it around on us. Let's finish off this lovely trip to Oahu by smashing UH-Hilo and get home.

Amazing first half for UNC. Super strong defense and solid shooting. I have found the Hawai'i TV announcers to be really good and fair.

Re: UNC @ The Rainbow Classic

Hume with a sensational block to end the game (as called by the Pacific radio guy). Hopefully the Bears social media presence (which has been completely absent for basketball) posts the highlights.
