NU AT CUSE/ Gazette Article

Disappointing that this game is set for 7pm in the midst of the CFP semis and as a storm is expected from the lakes.
2pm would have been better for all.
Expect a 20 point spread in the morning.
Wonder if the 35k capacity dome gets 5k!
At least coach Paulus should receive a warm welcome as Cuse QB after his career at Duke.

5K would be by far the worst crowd of this season. Many low level games have drawn 15K. I am hoping NU can shoot 75% from the 3 line and have a chance. If we had a better team SU would be in trouble.

NU gets 22 points per Vegas. We will need to shoot the lights out to win.

Respectable 41-29 deficit at halftime in the Dome.

Why do I put myself through this? . Tuned into the stats 5 minutes ago. Being out rebounded by 10 at half. And shooting only 2-12 from 3 pt land. The undersized team needs great outside shooting which they rarely have. MacDonald needs to step up one of these nights . On well.

Only comments during the game have come from 70 yr olds: Does our University have a future following in athletics?
Don't see it!

FINAL 71-57 and as was in the press this weekend, NU has the smallest team in D1.
Don't know if that is accurate or not.

What an effort by our purps. We outscored Syracuse in the paint! Imagine that. Paulus had the team playing hard and fundamentally sound. You can tell we are a well coached team. Just didn't have the size to rebound consistently, and our small guards really struggled while driving. Lots and lots of blocks. A very respectable effort all around!

Went to the pre-game and game, and both were well-attended by NU alums.
No question, this team will run through walls for GP. A player's father also told me that.
If SU played with the intensity of the NU players they would have beaten us by 40...
Paulus out-coached Boeheim, Boeheim just had better talent and much of that was due to a significant height advantage.
GP is going to have a very good career at NU and we will be in the upper half of the MAAC this year.
Once we land quality big men, NU will be very good.
The team has great hustle and is in great shape, outran SU on numerous exchanges.

Noah did not play and no longer has a boot.

I missed everything as we are on the road traveling. Good to hear this team will run through the wall for GP. NU must have done something right because according to the box we played SU to a draw in the second half. PB assembled this smallish roster , it’s not on GP. Good write up on espn re NU.
