This is a MUST win game for Linc. I don’t think he’s on the hot seat just yet, but it is certainly getting warmer, and with the up and down season he’s having, he can’t afford a loss to 1-10 CSU. Usually I am satisfied with a split on these conference road trips, but at this point in the season, they need a sweep. I’m confident they can get it done and hope we’ll be celebrating a couple wins!
I know it was just a scuffling CSU team but I have to give credit when I think credit is due. That was a well-played game from GB. I thought all ten guys who played made an impact on the game.
Some things that stood out to me include the offense having a ton more movement. I thought Cody looked very aggressive on both ends. On offense that spinning drive for a mid range jumper was tough. I thought Sandy did a great job of contributing even when he wasn’t scoring. As the game went along then he took on a bigger scoring load, he was very good last night. I think GB had 5 or 6 dunks, that is RP40 at its finest. Going end to end for easy buckets. I also thought GB showed its maturity over CSU. When Appleby had a big dunk to cut it to 3 points the entire CSU team was celebrating. GB had the ball back up the court and scored with an “And 1” in maybe 5 seconds. Even when GB had big plays the guys hustled right back into position. They scored 82 points in a game that JayQuan never really got rolling. This team is loaded and just needs to keep playing this way.
On to YSU who has won 3 straight but needed a miracle to win last night at home. Still they haven’t been a good matchup for GB in the recent past.
The team is 6-5 in the league. Detroit is scuffling a bit, a top 3 seed is within range if they keep it rolling.
