    Exactly.

    He is just one of the examples why I point to how silly it is when XU fans write off X players who havent done much after only two years.

    If I recall correctly Love was the one who fouled a Miami Ohio player shooting a three at the end of a close game that cause us to lose. He didnt have many fans his first few years but he is now looked back on with very fond memories.

    Congrats to Mr. Love!

    IF that was the game at Millet, then I was at that game with a young alumni group bus/trip. I recall it was pretty quiet ride home but they staill had beer left so we took out our frustrations.

    Jason was a student in one of the grad school classes I teach at XU. He was a kind, humble gentleman and I can only hope that he returns to XU b-ball some day. If you remember, Jason went to a Quaker School for H.S. and had a lengthy commute to get a fine education. At X he got better each year and was an outstanding player his senior season. Quality guy. I also had the pleasure of teaching Anthony Hicks a grad school class after his XU career. Another man of character.
