    Good stuff. I'm rewatching the game as we type.

    Seeing Triche go to the rack early, knowing that would be a good sign and a mismatch we could take advantage of... and Keita's maniacal yelling on that one play going back down the floor.

    Your second to last sentence was the key, Mike for whatever reason cant make 2 of 2 but he was at least getting the first ditto for Keita who went 1-2 late as well. When you have a 10 pt lead like that you just have to get something on each Ft trip, its the Goose eggs that kill you. SU getting 1 of 2 three times down the stretch was a huge help.

    the one that keeps sticking out to me is the one that said the story for the game. Zeller tried to elevate, the only problem was Jerami Grant was already there and 2 hand blocked the ball right back at his face. Both Grants arms were easily 8 inches above Zeller when he let the ball go. And for good measure if he missed it Baye, and James were there just in case.

    My favourite play we didn't even score on. First possession, MCW gives the ball up and immediately posts up on IU's guards. Missed the bunny but could see Jimmy's gameplan and loved it.

    My favorite play was the charge Keita drew on Zeller.

    Really set the tone for Zeller not getting on-track the rest of the game. Anyone who watched the Temple game knows how much momentum changed when the team started making a concerted effort to pound the ball inside to Zeller over that game's last few minutes. Having Zeller drift around in the high post and not get to the free throw line was a big factor in our win.

    My favorite play was the one where the IU guard was rushing down the court trying to beat SU's zone setup and MCW made a bee-line for the ball and got the steal before the kid had any clue what even happened.

    there were so many, but I'll throw in a nod to Triche's driving layup that pushed the lead back to 16 with under 6 to play . . . you could virtually see what was left of Indiana's spirit leaving their bodies

    Mine was the triple block on Zeller. Welcome to the Big East, mofo.

    And yet he had exactly 1 assist for the game.
    Virtually everyone has been adamant that we could not win games with MCW scoring but not assisting.

    To be clear, people were saying it was a problem if MCW was "shooting" instead of assisting. At the time, his shooting percentage was in the 20's. I don't think you'd have gotten those comments if he was shooting 50%.
