Re: URI Record Book Update, New Link

Only three players have had more assists in a season than Jeff now...Parfait, Silk and Tyson (three times). Most likely Tyson will be the only one when the season ends....or if we play in 7 or so more games, maybe none....

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.

Bad 3 point shooting and bad free throw shooting are caused by tired legs much more often than lack of focus. Occasionally, in pressure situations, it's nerves. I think our poor shooting right now is more physical than mental. We have to get our legs back in the next 2 weeks for tourney play.
