Box Score

Tracy was Tracy, scoring 17 points on 8-12 shooting; Richard Howell did his usual thing, grabbing 10 rebounds in 16 minutes; and the freshman impressed, scoring efficiently and flashing some of the athleticism we've been expecting from them.

I only caught the last ten minutes or so (if you attended the game, please share any and all thoughts), but I saw enough to know that these kids are going to be a hell of a lot of fun.  They'll make frustrating freshman mistakes, but mostly they'll be fun.  There was one play where Ryan Harrow broke the ankles of his defender with a crossover along the left wing, dribbled into the clear and banked a shot home...I nearly cried tears of joy right there.
