Weber State (Curse of the Purple Palace)

Post by bearodactyl » Thu Jan 09, 2020 6:35 am

Tonight in Ogden where we've NEVER won. Zero wins in 13 tries.

In 2018 the CIT champion Bears destroyed Weber in the Big Sky Tournament 80-55. But that was in Reno. Earlier in the season, at Ogden, we lost by 6, going 2-15 from 3, and a cold Spight missing 17 of his 22 shots.

The Curse of the Purple Palace must end tonight!

Great first win ever at the Purple Palace!

And we weren't the only ones to vanquish a road demon: Clemson was 0-59 on (the other) UNC's court, a record streak that started in 1926. But last night, as we did versus Weber, the Tigers found a way.

We are now only a half game behind first-place Montana, who has played 1 more game. Would be great if PSU can upset the Griz tomorrow night.
