Re: 2/20 | La Salle Explorers | 7PM (CBSSN)

First half observations... - Since when do we get outhustled for loose balls? Finally got our act together after the 8 min timeout. - Our usual excellent perimeter D was nowhere to be seen for the first 12 minutes, which led to a ton of deep drives for easy looks or quality shots. - Then LaSalle did...

The most annoying thing about this game is having to listen to a delusional former co-worker and SBU alum texting me pre and post game that Mobley is “clearly the best player in the A-10.”

Would have been nice to run the A-10 table but the downside (if you can call it that) would be that it came in a one bid league. This is what on the road in college hoops is all about.

It's #24 vs EC and JT. All 3 are balling out.

No foul underneath there?

JD has personally given them 8 points off of bad shots, missed FT's and turnovers.
