Random thoughts on the game:
-Burke-played nice game again vs Bucky...couple big boards, helpd shut down Landry, hit some big throws again
-Free Throws-We made more than they shot...repeat...we made more than they shot.
-Swing-Extending our defense (and not the soft press like we thought) really caused issues with theym running their offense. Bucky looked very timid with the ball and very timid about taking shots except for the first 7 minutes of the game.
-James-Kept us in the game in the first half
-McNeal-Absolute fucking stud in the second half. They kept running the double screen for him and they couldn't stop them.
-Krabbenhoft and Landry-Thanks for coming...combined 9 points. Way to be team leaders boys.
-JayBo-You really fucking suck but I love how you made another pointless shot at the buzzer to toally fuck over Reid and his wager with Curtin.
-Refs-Yeah the refs had some questionable calls but I think they went both ways. Atleast they were relatively consistent with the charge calls.
-Coach Buzz-Game started out rough but overall had a great game plan for today. Burke on Landry was huge, kept running double ball screen on Rel (if it aint broke don't fix it), kept switching defenses to keep Bucky off guard. Also think he's a class act...after the game instead of the obligatory fly by hand shake we've seen from our previous coach, Buzz stopped and talked to Bo for atleast 10-15 seconds and did the same to several players.
Overall a fantastic win for the pysche of our team and some of our players. Let's take care of the rest of the cupcakes and put up a good showing against NC State and Tennessee and get a win in one game and bring on the Beast where we can get off to a nice start in conference with the 2 home games against Nova and Cincy.
