- The best team won and we weren’t the best team. Colgate just picked up where they left off in last season’s game, doing basically the same things with basically the same result. They hit 18 treys last year. This year they topped that with 19. They took the lead early, expanded it quickly to double figures and we never got it back under 11. The Red Raiders were clearly the superior team from the beginning and nothing JB tried to do raised any question about it.

- Joe Girard, our “big gun”, went 4 for 15 from the field. He couldn’t out-shoot the Colgate sharpshooters Tucker Richardson, Ryan Moffatt and Oliver Lynch-Daniels , who hit 15 of 25 treys. Our other good outside shooters, Chris Bell and Justin Taylor, were 0 for 3 in 14 minutes of play. They were limited to that by the fact that all they did was shoot. The rest of their box scores are nothing but goose eggs.

- Jesse Edwards was facing some big guys: 6-10 250 Keegan Records and 6-11 270 Jeff Woodward. But he should have been able to out-quick them. Instead, he let himself get surrounded by them. He got off 6 shots in 34 minutes. He wound up with decent numbers: 10 points, 7 rebound and 5 blocks, but most of that was in the late-going, after the game was decided.

- It was a battle between a team that played team ball and a group of five individuals, each trying to get their own shots, with predictable results.

- In all of these double figure loss seasons we are so sick of, there’s been an early ‘wake-up call’ game that, in fact was a predictor of the troubles ahead. It didn’t take long for this season to reveal itself.

Other than not playing D and not having patience to take good shots everything is peachy.
