    That's probably what he's referring to. I think that's the last time we played them.

    Distinctly wrong. If you don't know, just say "I don't know". I put one jelly bean in that large jar. The answer was "it's an odd number". But if you don't know that one is an odd number, just say "Distinctly, I don't know".

    Hopefully this season finishes like that one did with a trip to the tourney.

    Negative ghost rider. That was a week night game when there was 9k against WKU


    The only time I've ever sat in the 3rd level. I remember that game very clearly. (Brad Boyd had a missed dunk) it was an awesome atmosphere

    Not only was it a weeknight I think I remember it being a later tipoff due to the game being on ESPN, and still pulled in 9k+.

    Is that in regards to The Thursday game or the Saturday game? Hopefully they show up to both.

    That's the only reason I get to go. Bring the kids.

    I was at that one!

    Also at the early 90's huge crowd for UNO.

    Lost them both. Maybe I should stay home.

    Me to. I never seemed to miss the big losses. Still ____ed I was not at the Lakefront Arena when Sydney Grider went off against UNO.

    Also had a 9+K game vs USA in SBC tournament. Thinking we lost that one. Sat in the nose bleed that night.

    Ah, yeah you're right. I must have had it mixed up with another game. Nice catch.

    That crowd was closer to 11k. Umass was ranked 4 at the time. That was one of my highlights as a ball boy sitting with Marcus Camby on the visitor bench while all the kids asked for his autograph. He was injured and didn't play. They still beat us by 30

    In the past - I remember most hyped up big crowds were letdowns that we lost - many vs. UNO - 9-10K plus... Dang Tim Floyd.... Seems like most Cajun teams would press and not play their game... I do think we beat Loyola Marymount in front of a big crowd - as an exception...

    But - for this team - I don't see that happening. I think they will handle the surroundings just fine, use it to their advantage and take care of business...

    GEAUX CAJUNS!

    My now wife and I were at that game on the 1st row of the student section but behind the goal (basically where the band used to sit). We were basically the 1st seats where the team comes out from. Yes, we lost. I remember that being the championship game of the tourney we were hosting. That was what began my hatred for USA!!!

    I remember that game also... Cajuns were down by a lot and made an AMAZING comeback with a 3 point barrage... the Dome was rocking... ended up having a chance to win and fell just short. Came down to free throws as I recall.
