Most people turned this one off at halftime.
Yes, there really hasn't been any reason to think that the Cavaliers would come back down 10 at the break. But for some reason, Tony Bennett wasn't going out like that again. Not with the sour taste of the opening round loss to Washington still lingering over this program. No way.
I would have liked to have been the fly on the wall for that speech, as the Men's Basketball team scored 58 points in the 2nd half to upset No. 13 Minnesota 87-79. On the night the Hoos shot 10 of 13 from three (thats 76.9% folks) and 22 for 26 from the charity stripe down the stretch to keep the game out of reach. Impressive was the play of Mike Scott (another double-double), Mu (who came off the bench to score 23), and Lambeth Field's Preseason ROY Joe Harris who but up EA Sports numbers (24 points on 8-12 from the field, including 4-6 from behind the arc).
Two issues that linger over this win. First that was a very impressive effort, and if we are going to play small, whether by choice or by force, we will need to keep up the impressive shooting. Secondly, the status of Will Sherrill is still in doubt, but everything we are hearing, it is not good. Paging Mr. Johnson. The phone is for you. It is destiny.
Well enough of my ramblings. Let's get some much needed rest before Sunday's tilt at Virginia Tech.
