Re: Who Can't Rhody Beat?

I also like the fact that when Andre starts and plays the first 6 or so minutes of each half, it keeps Cyril out of early foul trouble. He can be very aggressive with a clean slate.

There is no way he's only 165 lbs at 6'8. That's the weight that Fatts is listed at (soaking wet probably, but still).

If we play the way we did for the first 7 or so minutes of the 2nd half, especially on defense, I think we can beat anyone in the country. I think we outscored them 21-4, or something like that. That stretch was just beautiful to watch.....as was the whole game....and the whole season.
