(Wait....wrong fight song) Anyways, MU finally got the Big East monkey off their back by beating the #11 ranked Georgetown Hoyas in the friendly confines of the Bradley Center last night. Big thanks to senior David Cubillan for torching the nets last night in going 6-6 from beyond the arc, and Jimmy B for finally hitting some free throws in the clutch! Whew!
2 things of note here:
1. PT - Erik Williams was first off the bench and played 7 minutes in his first Big East performance; Yous Mbao saw 10 minutes and actually showed some confidence after corralling his 1st rebound.
2. Not only did MU come back from a slight deficit late in the 2nd half, they also were able to hold onto the lead in the final minute and earn a much needed victory
That being said, Rubie, does this now make Buzz Williams a great coach? Afterall, you seemed to pin the last 2 losses squarely on him for not coaching his team up in the final minutes of the game. Just curious.
