Runs, runs, runs

This year’s team has made it a point to hit teams in waves.  Unfortunately, the Cats have taken a couple tsunamis as well, making it even more impressive they sit at 10-0 right now.  Take a look at the amount of 8-0 or greater runs the Cats and their opponents have had this season:

OPPONENTS
Morehead St.: 9-0 (28-14 lead into 28-23 lead)
Morehead St.: 12-3 (72-47 lead into 75-59 lead)
Miami (OH): 16-0 (16-14 lead into 30-16 deficit)
UNC-Asheville: 13-2 (80-36 lead into 82-49 lead)
Stanford: 11-0 (19-11 lead into 22-19 deficit)
Stanford: 11-2 (30-27 lead into 38-32 deficit)
North Carolina: 10-0 (45-28 lead into 45-38 lead)
UCONN: 10-0 (12-0 lead into 12-10 lead)
UCONN: 16-2 (16-10 lead into 26-18 deficit)

Now, up to this point in the season, the Cats runs have outnumbered those of their opponents, and I feel like that will continue. But, if the Cats are the slip up and loss a game, look for the deciding factor being a big run from the opponent and the Cats lacking a big run.
