"I GOT A FEVER AND I NEED MORE COWGILL!!!!!"
Another Gutty victory for our Top 10 team. Man are these kids gutty. Man do I LOVE watching them play the game.
Couple late-night hits:
- Gonzaga has a chance to be really, really good by the end of this year. That Daye kid is really going to be something and they STILL do not have Joshey. They could really be special by tourney time. REALLY special.
- Baynes makes us a real force to be reckoned with, but he still leaves his feet too much on defense. If he keeps that up in Pac-10 play, a guy like Kevin Love will have him saddled with 3 fouls in the first 10 minutes. IF he can keep his feet better, he will still be a force defensively. And with his soft touch from the line, he will be a hero a couple of times this year.
- Cowgill is a cool version of Mikki Moore. Long and lean with a nice midrange game. But Cowgill is much more physical. And he has hops to go with timing. What a nice player.
- IF anyone can tell me who they have seen that recovers quicker than Kyle Weaver let me know who it is...I'd also like him to jack it up about 15 times a game over the next three. HE NEEDS that perimeter game to become the NBA pro that he should be.
But I tell you, Cougar Nation, after watching the last two games, our boys are seriously legit. As many of us know far too well, contenders ALWAYS have the way of breaking your heart. Whether or not its by coming back and stealing one at the end in a game you should have lost (e.g. Baylor) or the ability to sustain a late game surge in a game you should have won (Gonzaga) our boys come through with poise AND aggressiveness. Seriously, a top 30 team loses one if not both of those games. But not us.
The ONLY thing we lack is a reliable BIG TIME scorer. But, IF we could have a game where a couple of guys could get off (especially Baynes or Harmeling), we WILL beat anyone.
Enjoy this season, Cougar Nation. This is a once in a lifetime group of kids.
