Thanks for the kudos. We had one stolen from us at Cal. The Bears had only 8 fouls called against them all night and we went to the line twice - and we didn't take a free throw the last 34 minutes of the game. The Northridge game is what surprised me. They're a Top 125 team and we just smoked them.
You guys are playing well too - thanks for beating HC - we've got them later this month, and I'm hoping they're on a downer. Good to see y'all played PC close as well, we have them on the 22nd down in Providence.
The funny thing about Shawn's game was that he had to play a bit cautiously as he was in foul trouble. I haven't seen the game tape yet, but I heard he had some good offensive moves on some big Cal players. He had like 16 blocks in the two games out there.
We're 4-1 which is where I thought we'd be, but we could easily be 5-0 going into our CAA opener at JMU. I'm hoping we can play well down there. The CAA folk boast about how hard it is to win on the road in that league, so a strong performance is a must against the Dukes. After that we have Towson at home, and they're not that good. Then we have exams, and return at Providence, at Wright State and home for Holy Cross.
I think we'll enter the new year 8-2.
