Nice set out of the timeout. Didn't think we were allowed to do anything but throw it up to our biggest guy after watching the last decade. Nice

You beat them at their own game, you overcame a lot of adversity, and you beat a team that Can't lost to by 30+ a few days ago.

 

Good. Win.

Were there any records set tonight for missed layups?  Total: Both teams; Total: Each team.  Horrific team basketball.

Well, if it weren't for the Marshall loss, we'd actually be undefeated at home. Is there any way we can play the rest of our games within the warm confines of the JAR? Haha. Gutsy win tonight, though. Hopefully they can shake their road woes in Oxford.

I will take an ugly win.  I thought the momentum might swing and the game go the other way when Minnie had that alley oop dunk with about 16:30 left, but the Zips responded quickly.  Daniel wasn't a huge presence on offense tonight as Eastern seemed committed to keeping a big in his face, but he worked his a$$ off on defense fronting their big men, especially Thompson, who I believe only took 5 shots.  Still perplexed that the Eastern coaches couldn't figure out how to take advantage of the size disparity.

Wow.  We squeaked out a victory.  Not pretty, but I'll take it.

 

Great effort on defense, for 2 halves! I am very relieved. I liked Groce's postgame comment that the team was coachable tonight.

 

Let's duplicate the effort at Miami!

watched the replay at home of the last few minutes.   Basketball gods on the Zips side.  That missed lay up with5.1 was a bunny only a Zip could miss:champs:

From my seat in the JAR it looked like Riak passed up what looked to be an easy path to an uncontested dunk with about 30 seconds left. Instead he passed it off then settled for a 15 footer at the end of the shot clock. We got lucky that layup got missed after that Riak mid-range jumper. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Overall, I was happy with the 40 minutes of effort.

So where is K-Lac, that is the question.

Could have used his height in this game.

Have you been out of the country or something?????

NO

He was on the bench and played after the assault. Have not seen any explanation of why he was not present last night.

Wonderful

At least the old KD guys had the decency to play out the season.

Pittsburgh=2 hour drive give or take.   Get over it and move on.   Or continue to troll ... Keeps us active on here.
