-- Florida State isolated Toney Douglas with Javi Gonzalez twice in the final minute. The first time, Douglas drove around Gonzalez and scored an easy one. No one rotated to help. Just another example of how we shoot ourselves in the foot either by failing to understand or failing to execute the basics. After we got the ball back and called timeout, Sidney Lowe walked up to JJ Hickson and asked, "where are you?" Hickson didn't make the same mistake the second time around, Douglas had to pull up, and he missed. (Javi actually bumped his elbow during the shot, and I was shocked at the no call considering the way the second half had been officiated.)

-- We allowed a mediocre offensive rebounding team to grab almost 45% of its misses. Nothing makes me want to hurl objects (or just hurl in general, really) at the television like our defensive rebounding.

-- At this point, Brandon Costner's mental state is as big of a concern as his physical one. We need you and we're pulling for you, BC. Please get through this.

-- The Noles made only 14 of 40 (35%) two-point attempts.

-- According to a Pack Pride poster, the News and Observer had an insert or box or whatever in today's print edition that compared Gonzalez/Johnson using per-40-minute stats. Can anyone confirm that? Awesome if true.

-- If you rearrange the letters in "Courtney Fells," you get Score Fluently.

-- I anxiously await Lenox Rawlings's piece on how Javi Lopez led the Pack to a thrilling triple-overtime win over the Seminoles in the opening round of the Jack Daniels Classic.
