Final thoughts: I believe the Miners are now starting to play like the team we expected them to be. It is awesome to see that more fans show up every game regardless of the opponent. If we can stay hot shooting tonight, I don’t believe that being out rebounded will be a problem. The main thing for the Miners tonight is to keep playing like a team and not a bunch of individuals. I expect to see more of Hooper Vint and Twymond Howard tonight and eventually make their way into some decent minutes down the road in conference play. I don’t see the Miners losing at all tonight and I really feel that the fan base will continue to be a problem for visiting schools.

Prediction: Miners 69, Huskies 52
