Son of a Bitch!
I came into the game with such low expectations, but I came away feeling much better about our chances going forward. They played their asses off and in my opinion (and that of many others) they left everything out on the court. Mo and Cooby played awesome and really stepped up, handled the press very effectively and even hit some shots...not having DJ was not the reason we lost this game. Our piss poor shooting, especially from our best player, was the reason we lost. Jimmy had 10 boards...wow...wish he could finish some of the boards off. The first 3 minutes of the second half really killed us as we battled pretty even the rest of the way we just didn't have enough. rel got raped on that steal and dunk during that run. That foul call on Zar on the moving pick was very ticky tack. He made contact on the pick, rolled to the hoop bumping into the guard who went under the pick as he rolled. Rel hits the 3 but its get waved off. Absolute horse shit call as that happens millions of times during the game. Thabeet got away with that shit atleast 5 times when price hit 3's and rel was late getting through the screen. Wes almost hits that last desperation 3 after he tired to draw the foul. I guess I understand you can't reward Wes for that, but damn he jumped. Fucking Edgar Sosa drains that late 3 with Rel in his face...you have to be kidding me. Wes and Jimmy not blocking out Knowles (#2?) on that free throw. How can you let that happen...well on T'will's throws right after that he's fucking pushing Wes in the back (and even forced the ref to walk over and warn him). ah, I'm so pissed off, not from our effort just the fact that we shot like shit and still had a chance to win. I do think that people realized today that we are still a force to be reackon with in our conference and the NCAA's and think we showed the loss of James shouldn't affect our seeding.
