    Q is really feeling it- not just shooting it better from behind the arch, but he's finishing like a man at the rim. What a stud.

    He and Naji and Scruggs have really taken their game to the next level and are gaining more and more confidence each game. They are playing with some serious swagger. A beautiful-beautiful thing to see as they are the future. We're gonna have some great leaders over the next couple of years.

    It's even more special seeing them play the way they are at this point of the season... with the BE regular season title on the line and the BE and NCAA tournament coming up.

    I love this team!!!!

    You notice that once SHU pulled within 10 points under three minutes to go I know we had Naji and Scruggs in and I think Q as well all at the same time?

    I believe Goodin and Naji were in at that point but not Scruggs.

    One thing for sure is that those three played very well yesterday and they make X much quicker on offense and defense.

    Nine guys?

    Nine guys.
    The superb thing is that CMack is putting the 2 frosh on the floor for our best defensive team. The offense/defense subs at the end of games has been a secret reason why we've won the close ones. Not often that Freshman buy in to your defensive Philosphy so quickly.

    Also, will we ever play a 1-3-1 again? (Thread hijack in process)

    Naji and Scruggs get it done on the defensive end, and with those two playing like grown men, ala exactly what we expected pre-season out of them, Mack feels comfortable with them, and honestly, I feel comfortable with them too, we're winning close ones because everybody knows their role and how to contribute. I'm very pleased at the progression of these guys throughout the season.

    As for the 1-3-1, who knows, maybe throw it in as a wrinkle in the tournament, but we haven't really needed it much. Seems like we get the stops when it matters without it.

    HUH??? Worse?

    If Kaiser really helped him learn to shoot, that could be his biggest contribution of the year. And I LOVE Kaiser! You just can’t back all the way of Q anymore with impunity.

    Quentin Goodin is an emerged force. Go ahead and gameplan to shut down Bluiett and Macura.
