I heard that - and how he said "If you want to stop this guy (Malachi) just run one man after another into his face." That sounds like an interesting defensive system (especially with so many players already in foul trouble).
Also, each spoke of "bounce passes" by Holy Cross...when the screen showed the ball flying over the defenders' heads. I wondered if they knew what a bounce pass actually was.
Better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.
Just got home. I'll take any win we can get at that God-forsaken place. The boys did a good job bringing the noise in Dave's absence. Malachi was obviously huge. Foul trouble definitely hurt us but happy to get a W.
I just KNEW you and the boys were there - a couple of Sacred Heart free throws gave it away. You guys all did a great job supporting the guys; as Tom alluded to, it also probably took some steam out of the home team,
The boys were bummed you weren't there but did their best to carry the torch. They have school tomorrow but might bring one or two depending on what they're actually doing at school.
I am not familiar with the play by play announcer, however during color commentary was a former basketball player that I am surprised that our long time New England basketball historians did not recognize the name.
It was Chris Smith from Uconn, who also played for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
