    The encouraging thing is that X won while playing just ok. Very up and down against a good/hot team, didn’t let the drought beat us. It is March, survive and advance.

    Imagine, starting tomorrow, if our three transfers continue playing at a high level while Paul and Naji, in particular, wake fully up, and Q takes a few less 3 attempts.
    Would be immense, and a great formula for success. It's been promising the last few days, so I'm happy to see them sorting out ways to win. Winning tomorrow would be absolutely huge, and strangely I feel confident that these guys have the ability to do it. Pulling out a 20 win season while we were dead in the water is mental to me.

    The coaching that Steele has done since the team was 11-13 has been absolutely incredible. There was a real chance with the remaining schedule that this team could have fallen off the map and had a twenty loss season. Simply incredible job to now have gone 7-1 against the schedule. Really gets me excited for the future and claiming the final 2%.

    This is where I am right now. The current run and wherever it takes us this post-season is fun and exciting, but it seems like homemade sausage gravy slathered on a week-old store-brand biscuit. I just hope the gravy outlasts the biscuits.

    But my outlook on the future of this team has changed dramatically in the past month. Next year's core players have proven a lot to me, and I think they have finally settled into their roles without Tre, JP, Kanter and Kaiser. Now, add KyKy et al to the mix and we start addressing areas of weakness, such as ball handling and shooting depth.

    The future looks bright. The present is exciting as hell, too, but no matter how this season ends, I'm way more eager for November than I was a month ago.
    It's winning time.

    Good defense kept them in the game. The current defense we now see is light years ahead of what we saw even 6 weeks ago.

    in contrast to our game, the post game line between ST Johns and Marquette looked like the "good game..good game" of a 6th grade girls Catholic school game. In fact I think the girls get madder..once you are "in" I guess you are happy
