UL guards resemble 1997 NCAA Champs Arizona wildcats Part 2



I wrote a post after the UL vs Pitt game in January. In my post I talked about the Arizona Wildcats 1997. They had a record of 25-9 and were a #4 seed in the 97 NCAA tournament. They got hot late in the year and they were lead by two scrappy guards NBA star Mike Bibby and Miles Simon. OUR GUARDS Peyton Siva and Russ Smith play a similar style as those Arizona guards . I went on and talked about Arizona flying under the radar and stealing away a Championship in 97. That same Arizona team was upset and ousted a couple years before in the first round, just like UL did the year before. Arizona beat a heavily favored UK team that year coached my none other than our Rick Pitino. Mike Bibby and Miles Simon ran circles around Pitino's press. Mike Bibby had 18pts 8 turnovers and great free throw shooting, Miles Simon had 30 pts a bunch of steals and also shot some clutch free throws in that championship game. Peyton Siva and Russ Smith when playing their best can also play like those guards and can steal a championship away in 2012 for this UL team. I could also compare Kyle Kuric to Arizona's Jason Terry. I know Im getting a little far fetched but I can see this UL team taking a similar path, making a the same run, with a similar record the same seed that the Arizona Wildcats did in The 1997 NCAA tournament. Ironically Rick Pitino is coaching similar guards like Peyton Siva and Russ Smith in 2012. Im going to finish my post by saying we also have future All Americans Chane Behanan, Wayne Blackshear, and Gorgui Dieng who holds ULs Shoot blocking record. Remember last time UL had a shot blocker. We won the championship 1986. All Im saying is although everybody is counting us out it is very possible for UL to WIN IT ALL IN 2012. When we are.playing like a veteran team with good guard play and making good decisions and making clutch free throws. We CAN BEAT ANY BODY, I DONT CARE WHAT ANY BODY SAYS, WE HAVE A GOOD TEAM. AS GOOD AS ANYBODY! We just have to believe and let our leaders and our guards steal us away a championship. We have to be in a zone a "Cardinal Zone" UL and its fans have got to believe. UL can resemble the 1997 Arizona Wildcats and win the championship just like they did.
