Any win on the road is big. I don't care who you play.
Some quick observations right after the game.
Wes Matthews... Man! Anytime Rutgers was getting rolling he would hit some floater/leaner/pretty Wes-type shot.
Dominic James... Absolutely outstanding game. 2 threes that shouldn't have been taken... maybe, but oh well. His court vision is that of legends. Some of those passes are ridiculous.
Jerel McNeal... A seemingly pedestrian effort by him. Still some big shots including big throws at the end.
Dwight Burke... Way to start off big buddy. Too bad they didn't keep feeding him.
Lazar Hayward... Not a great game. His shot wasn't there. One stupid charge foul. Not a horrible game but not helping himself as far as D3S's theory goes.
Jimmy "Legs" Butler... Great to see him do what he did in the first half. A very dumb charge (just like Lazar).
Buzz Williams... Well he even admitted in the post game that he didn't have his greatest coaching effort tonight. He said he took chances and put guys in at spots where he normally wouldn't and left guys out longer than he normally would. At least he is learning. Gotta like that.
As Zone says, "Survive and advance."
Oh yeah... and could that R at center court be any bigger. I'm sure you can see that from space.
