    I hope to see more of what we saw in the last 25 minutes.

    Yeah, switching to the zone made all the difference. Ty and Zach were able to be effective defensively, which allowed for them to stay on the floor together and KILL it offensively.

    Jones also provided much needed leadership. He gets the game ball in this one. We get no "W" without his tenacious energy and hustle. His laser focus from the line was a game changer and real momentum killer for the Hoyas.

    My game ball goes to Jones... and Naji and Hankins and Scruggs and every X player who stepped on the court last night... and coach Steele.

    They all stepped up to do something crucial that helped the team come back and win.

    I have advocated trying both Bigs all season. Finally we get that in Game 17. Until Game 17 I don't remember both on the court at the same time all season. I congrat Coach Steele for trying it, but wonder what our record might be if we had tried it in 1st couple of games. We are still pathetic at 3's, but there are games we probably can't win without jacking quite a few. Last night I literally saw us score 3 straight 2's at start of game only to be losing by 3 cause GTown scored 3 straight 3's. Somebody wrote that Creighton & Marquette went 33 for 61 combined from 3 pt land. We would have to shoot 50 of 61 from 2 pt land to beat that. Regardless if we start 2 Bigs in the future, I hope we continue to slash to the rim & get fouled. That's the other way to get 3 pt plays.

    I’m not sure having two bigs on the floor at the same time is the answer for our poor perimeter D.

    This was strictly matchup orientated. Running Hankins and Jones our there against the better perimeter teams is not going to result in good things IMO.
