First time out to the NCCU campus last night to check out the future of Wolfpack and UNC hoops. Although my beloved Pack came up 10 points short on the scoreboard, I did see several positives both expected and not. GB's disappointments other than losing included:
Tracy Smith did not show up even though he was the lone premier senior on the court.
CJ Leslie had a mistaken day dream that he was Bill Lambier and was trying to hit 3's.
If the ball ever made it down low, it never came back out, no matter what.
Harrow showed solid ball handling in the face of good pressure without turn overs.
Zo Brown may be a No Doubt Superstar in the making. Calm under pressure and excellent passing skills.
CJL proved he can get to the rim whenever he wants to.
CJ Williams absolutely has improved tremendously! He was a steady force throughout the game.
Must admit I had a hell of a good time as I got to the gym early and was able to plunder a front row bleacher spot for the action. I do plan to be back next Tuesday for the rematch if....and only if....all NC State participants commit to show. Otherwise, I'll just stay in Johnston County.
