Ah, Mr. X factor, you were SSSSSSSOOOOO big tonight...Hope you saved a few of those bullets for Saturday, cause we sure are going to need you again then!
Yep, Harmeling's dagger to put the game away was the difference tonight. That and Baynes' HUGE steal and stuff when you could feel that things were starting to slip a bit.
Overall, we played pretty darn well tonight. Our problem was that we just didn't shoot the ball very well, and part of our spacing on the zone was a bit off which made it hard to get the ball to the weakside baseline quickly enough.
But I loved our patience and the energy of Cowgill and Rochestie: the former who played pretty darn well and the latter who just couldn't find the jumper. But the effort and scheme was there.
Time to savor this victory in a major way.
We now head into the three game stretch that WILL define our season's fortunes.
In the meantime, as we sit at 21-5 and 9 wins in conference, know that we are now a virtual LOCK for the tourney.
And with Kelvin getting the axe officially tomorrow, time may be short on this little dream.
