This group really has some "stones!" I love their never give up attitude, their drive, and they are working pretty well as a team. I do wish we could finish some of those layups that they keep getting. ;) jc

There is a lot of good young talent on the roster. We need to finish at both ends by getting Defensive rebounds and getting layups. To many times we're driving looking to get fouled instead of looking to score. The good news is we won't play many teams with post players as big and skilled as Bradley. Really like that JD has gotten T'd up two games in a row shows he has the players backs. In the past he probably backs after the warning instead of continuing to go after the officials.
