Good post 65, we all should and I think are pretty happy with where this team is at. We’re halfway home and are 6-1 in league play, pretty solid record. I believe, if CJ was healthy and we were 6-1 with him and that 1 L included a tough L at BU against a really solid Bison squad, that we’d be pretty happy with where we’re at. Being 6-1 and having won there, mentally allowing our guys to know they can atleast compete with Bison sans CJ is a great thing. Let’s not forget last year we were 11-3 in league play. I had thought 10 wins minus CJ was probably the peak, but this team looks like it could atleast match last years 11 win total and without CJ. Clearly the biggest thing post CJ has been our team defense, really holding opponents down as the team knows this has to be their identity, hot shooting comes and goes but if you bring 4o minutes of D every night good things usually happen….Mackey and BJ have stepped up big from guard spots, Mackey is the best PG in the league and BJ has filled in for some of the missing CJ points but elevating his offensive game while still focusing on the D end….and Greiner does a bit of everything for this team, rebounding extremely well and scoring the ball better than in teh past…depth has been good, seems every night someone from the AD CS SC camp steps up and contributes in a big way and JG has been a good addition to frontcourt..of course good starts are meaningless if you don’t finihs, so its time to finish the 2nd half strong..and it starts in our personal house of horrors, a place I’ve sen countless Ls at, Hart Center on Saturday in Worcester…let’s get this W.
