Re: Who has been the most pleasant surprise of the season so far?

This thought popped into my head, and I think there's a case to be made for nearly everyone on the roster. I am leaning towards Andre Berry. I think he's truly been unbelievable in terms of expectations going into the season versus the reality of being our best inside scoring presence. He may not b...

Re: Who has been the most pleasant surprise of the season so far?

I would have to say Andre. I'm not surprised how good he's been on offense. I am surprised how much better he is on D. He has worked his ass off and clearly earned that starting spot.

We are lucky Berry has been so good since Cyril has not progressed as much as I expected.

Re: 1/3 | La Salle Explorers | 7PM

I'm very confused on how this was a "much closer" game the last 5 minutes. We were up 67-53 and LaSalle went on a 5-0 run to bring the lead down to 9. We immediately brought the lead back up to 72-58 after a nice layup from JT and a three from EC.

We win that game with or without Johnson.

We were in the game against Virginia. We just had tired legs and no energy left.
