wow! tonight was a reality check...I figured the new players and lineups would experience growing pains and I hope that's what we saw again tonight because it was painful!...our effectiveness against the Shocker's zone defense in the first half was difficult to watch...I'm confident things will improve by A-10 time, but we've got further to go than I might have expected...
the second half comeback strategy was exciting again tonight, but once again came up short...we couldn't sustain it for more than five minutes...once the Shockers got themselves back together it never felt like we had a chance to win down the stretch...our defense at the rim disappeared and when we were able to get a stop critical turnovers took away any chance we had to catch up...
highlight clips were hard to find tonight, but there are a few on the link from the 14:42 mark of the 2nd half to the 9:35 mark...they include Isaiah Bigelow's dunk which brought down the house, giving us our first lead since the first seconds of the game...
it could get real ugly for the Spiders on the three week road trip, but that's three more weeks of practice and competition to solve some problems and improve for the A-10 battles...I'm still hopeful!
Beat William and Mary!
