Re: Interviews with PC Bloggers

really sean, as you were posting about the prowess of PSU vis a vis the A10 they were taking a beating from a middle of the road team in our league.

but i know, they were missing their all conference player who would've made a 30 pt difference.

Re: Game #9: @ Providence College

doesn't make sense to rush Dunn back for this game, he has a long career ahead of him and he has 2 weeks of rest and practice before their next game.

if cotton can walk he will play, and i am betting he plays. still like our chances as he wont be at 100%

We arent going to win many games if we dont get more out of Malone and Malesevic, its that simple. Even with the poor FT shooting, if either of these 2 guys gives you an average game we win. Nik is seemingly regressing. Andre just lacks aggressiveness and for an off guard is very weak off the dribble.
