    Am I the only one who looked for Tim and couldn’t find him on the court when you’d might have expected to see him there? Only 26 minutes this afternoon? Stat wise, you get 30 out of TK and you, far more often than not, walk away with a W. True in that 4-game stretch with BU, Army, Loyola, American a few weeks ago and probably true in general.

    No, I’m not looking forward to going back to Hamilton next Saturday. That is, of course, should we get by AU on Thursday and assuming, too, that the Raiders get by the winner of the Army/Nave game on Tuesday. With my military background, you know who I’ll be rooting for in that game. Remember, the Raiders are 1-1 against each service academy this year. After all, they do say, “Anything is possible.” While we’re making out our “wish List,” be sure to add Holy Cross over Loyola in the 9 vs. 8 gamae and follow that with a HC upset win over Bucknell. Hey, it happened earlier in the year. So, why not? Must see TV on Tuesday while we await our turn to play.



    Having missed the whole darn second half, I can only go over the box score for some insight. A few things jump out:
    1-11 from 3 in the second half. Ouch.
    4 assists – total – for the game. I’m spoiled, but that’s often about 20 mins of work for KR by himself.
    4 total FTAs for the entire game.
    2 total FGAs for Goldie, for the game.
    Looks like AP was the only solid constant for the whole game; nice line for him. 6 for 11 from the field, 4-6 from 3, 4 boards, 2 assists, and 3 steals.

    Making assumptions from those numbers, it looks like gate must have disrupted our O pretty well in the second half. That’s an unusually high % of 3 attempts for us, and clearly they weren’t going in. I have to guess that gate clamped down in the paint and forced us to shoot 3s. This seems to fall right in line with our discussion here, before the game: how do we react when the D clamps down on TK? Also make me wonder if gate took away the drive-and-dish.


    Gate did indeed. Just look at TKs shot % .
