Well that was Fugly, but a win is a win.
They let Peay hang around way too long but thankfully they held on for the W.
Maybe I'm just old but it's hard to watch college hoops these days.
#4 for Peay needs a hair cut BAD!!!
Finke gets my COG!

Monte....he plays so smart and his defense and composure on offense won this game. Lucas with a great finish tonight.

BTW, Alstork and Jordan were no shows tonight.   Finke could have easily had 25 tonight if he just hits shots and puts back 3 or 4 of those offensive rebounds.  I know he led scoring but he has to do better IMO....couldn't give him chief for the misses.   If you want to be the man, big time players step up and make big time plays all game

In an effort of choosing the lesser of the sucks tonight, I went with Williams.  His steal and layup lit a fire in both the team and the crowd.

In all fairness I didn't know there coach and Brad were together 7 years as huggy bear and Martin assistants. They know each other like a book and they play our type of defense.   I give the team a little slack for that but they have to stop the dumb turnovers.  We created most of our own turnovers.

Again as I said in the game post. OKie State was 0-6 to start conference play last year and then it clicked.  I don't want to go 0-6 but I trust at some point that it is going to click and we will put some teams away decisively at some point.

I went with Williams. He made some key plays when needed, like the steel for a bucket that I thought was big. Finke had a good game also.
Still crazy

I gave the chief award to Lucas

He was strong at the close ... something we have been missing lately

Finke for COTG.  Ugly win > Ugly loss so I'll take it.  Turnovers are bad, but I expect a lot early in the season considering the pace BU wants them to play at.

I thought of Te Jon as well.  Honestly I think he has been pretty strong the end of the last 3 games.  He didn't make some shots and in the NW game he had to take over as PG because nobody was getting open to score.  Yes he missed some shots in those situations but I like the fact that he isn't afraid of the moment and the that those last 3 games where we as a team didn't finish didn't scare him away from being aggressive in clutch time.
