Cooby must have had Seton Hall +13...

Why else would have thrown up that shot with the shot clock off at the end of the game which allowed Hazell to hit that last 3 and make it a 12 point game? Just another reason why I don't bet on lines.

Nice second half last night...glad to see it looked like the stepped up the intensity. Always helps to have a 5 point play. There were some pretty nice stat lines last night:

Wes-24 points, 4 boards, 4 assists, 1 steal and 1 turnover
DJ-13 pionts, 8 assists, 6 boards, 7 steals, 4 blocks, and 4-4 from the line
Jerel-13 points, 6 boards, 7 assists, 5 steals
Zar-14 points, 6 boards, 2 steals, 2 blocks

Too many turnovers as a whole, but I attribute that to a lazy first half and overall a poor shooting night, but things improved in the second half.

Jimmy Butler continues to impress and as long as we don't get into foul trouble there's no reason why our the big 4, burke and jimmy don't get 95% of the PT.

Overall, we are 11-2 and tied for first heading into murderer's row. Steal the G-town game (which is very doable) and we are in good shape.

Legs' dunk last night was fucking ridiculous. Like Buzz said on the post-game show, in the last two games, Legs has shown: (1) that he can dribble; (2) that he can hit the mid-range J; and (3) that he can throw down a dunk on a lob from half court. Not bad for a guy whose job, up until now, has been to grab a board every now and again. He could be an X factor in the post-season.

Also: if anyone doesn't think Junior Cadougan starts from Day One, Mo Acker would like a word. Three minutes, one back-breaking turnover, one terrible shot (a 28-foot three? Really? You thought that was a good idea?), two fouls. Ugh.

I completely agree with Butler and was thinking the same thing last night. He has been very impressive/solid of late and seems to improve and gain more confidence with each game. If he continues to provide some offense he can prove to be very important in our tourney run.

In regards to Cadougan.....who doesn't think that he is a starter? That's ridiculous! I suspect "starter" was Buzz' main selling point to him.
