I don't care what anyone says, last night's win was a thing of beauty in my book. We hold the Beavs to 31-odd-percent shooting, get good offensive play out of our backcourt, Robbie Cowgill showed his increasing aggressiveness and confidence--all against a really scrappy team that had NOTHING to lose and wanted that game bad.
No matter how you cut it, a win is a win is a win is a win. In addition, sometimes playing games like that in empty gyms are the most difficult to play.
So, on we go to the mighty Quack Attack who, once again, seem to have found themselves JUST in the nick of time to play us (what the heck is up with that?).
But, even with a raucous crowd tomorrow at MacCourt and even as the mighty Quack do their utmost to scrap and bomb their way back to the upper division, it won't be enough.
You could see it in the offensive sets last night that this team is FINALLY putting it together, finally getting playmakers the ball in situations where they can do something with it, and we are starting to see our x factors (Rochestie, Harmeling, and kinda Cowgill) start to show themselves.
Granted, we could have an off shooting night. Granted, the Quack can put on a 14-16 three point barrage akin to what we saw last night, but this one is going to be ours. Granted we could return to that horrible trap and watch them dish and drain all night long.
But it ain't gonna happen.
Cougs 69 Quack 62
But we'll make it interesting by missing some FTs down the stretch...
Enjoy the weekend, because next week is going to be TOUGH!!!!!!
