That was as well as Black has played since he's been here.

I thought the game was tonight so I was out and missed it. Sounds like Leron had a monster game and then good games from Kipper, Mark S and Trent.

Black for COTG by a large margin. Good work by everyone else. No Finke still and only a couple minutes for Williams.
Still crazy

Has Monte been sick or did he tweak his knee.  On Friday I heard that "he was able to practice a little on Saturday"....but I didn't hear why?   I hope he didnt hurt his knee again.

It's good to see Mark out there putting the ball in the basket.  8 points is a solid effort for him.  I didn't expect him to come out and average double-figures every night, but at the same time, didn't expect him to average so low.

Thanks Bud.  Hopefully this was just a one time issue and the knee doesn't continue to be an issue. He is very talented and has a Basketball IQ through the roof.

Smith has had to make quite an adjustment. I'm sure a big part of his game was to drive the lane and use his body to overpower the opposing center and his coordination to make the shot.  He sortof had a shot like this in this game.  But he has to adjust to bigger athletic centers in the B10.  He is such a good shooter imo that he should develop the 10 foot step back jumper.  This will totally change the way he is guarded and will open up the rim for him a bit.  He makes open shots and that includes free throws.  He also is a good passer.

Black was off-the-charts good yesterday!  Smith came up big in the second half - that bodes well for next year.
