When Cooney he hit that ridiculous high-degree-of-difficulty three, the dagger so to speak, at crunch time, he had the greatest bad-ass, one-eye-almost-closed-Popeye look on his face comin' back down the floor. Great all-around game, too. GMac and Devendorf's love child … he's well on the way to being a better all-around player than both. Love this kid, even when he's missing, love this team!

Cooney had some crazy swagger last night, that's for sure. He looked goofy as hell, as the pic in the OP demonstrates, but I loved it!

JB said he's one of the most confident kids on the team (I'm sure they're all very confident kids). Posts in other threads that question his confidence are silly.

Cooney may not make us forget GMAC, but his play is more and more apt to make us remember Gerry. Similar tenacity, similar daggers late in the game, although with Cooney they may turn out to be defensive daggers. I'm liking to see Cooney drive to the basket early on in games and draw a foul, as he did last night. Those made free throws can be a good warm-up for finding his rhythm and confidence for the three. Previously, he's been looking to shoot first, drive later. Imagine how good he'll be in a year or two when consistency kicks in.-VBOF

There was some great What eyes, during this exchange, from some chick sitting behind the SU bench.

You know when that face comes out it's no longer Trevor Cooney... it's his evil alter ego Terry Cooney aka Shaky Potatoes

As I'm a relatively new poster, but longtime lurker, I've been waiting to find a suitable avatar for a while.

Got it last night.

Evil eye, emphatic face, and chest pump all in one... and following a slam dunk no less.

Air Cooney.

I love it! Congrats for a great avatar!

I have a question. How come when I try to copy and paste pictures in these posts and send them through email, the email recipients can't see what I copied? I would love to send some people that Cooney pic, but unhappy experience has proven that although the picture shows up for me, it doesn't for my friends.

BC worked liked hell to take away CJ and to make life miserable for Tyler. What they were saying in effect was, "Let Cooney beat us"... guess what, he did! If Trevor doesn't play well last night, we get our asses kicked...Great job Trevor!

Dissagree,

Fair came out slower, not ready to go, and his shot was hitting back rim with alittle less arc then usual. Alittle strange though hes a senior and should have been more into it from the getgo maybe he was playing with alittle to much iq in the first half and not enough freeflowing art like he is capable of(this is the guy who is shooting a jabstep jumper over the defender now or blowing by for the layup.
Tyler didn't have a great game but a decent one, didn't really score to the second half but had a 3 pointer and a layup when we were down 7 to cut it to 2 during what sounded like a thets go orange chant, HUGE!

As for Cooney, Cooney had 2 3 pointers and one baseline drive in the second half, I think a short pullup from the left corner, but by no means did he beat BC alone in the halfcourt with only 10-12 halfcourt points.

The majority of his points came off of good defense getting out in transition(atleast 8 of them). I think 10 with 2 freethrows. thats leading by Defense not offense. And he had a nice 2nd offensive rebound of the possession in the secon half where he drove baseline and scored.

BC's strength on defense in the first half came from good timing on their help defense when we drove this happened to grant mostly but fair and ennis on a play or two also. We made a few drives in the first half, where a simple headfake could have fooled the help defender (especially by grant).

Not disagreein, to stir up contraversy but I see it differently. Cooney wasn't a offensive leader in the halfcourt by any means outside of 3-4 plays, but that being said he was still a beast , a hustle expert and atleast 25% of the reason we won because he was the one who got it done(let it be known that other guys maybe Gbinije could have done the same though).
