Weekend Reflections: Dec. 17-19

  • Okay, so this one really isn't about the weekend, but it's clear that the 'Cats are getting excited about their own play. Everyone's just out enjoying the game, giving chest bumps, pounding away when a great play (like a dunk) happens. I just love watching this team play. 
  • Purdue suddenly looks like a very beatable team. I originally believed that a road win against the Boilermakers would be a very Herculean task, but now-- not so much. Sure, they're back to their winning ways, but who have they beaten? So far, the only scorers are E'Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson. No one else. Zip, zilch, nada. I bet if we manage to shut down JaJuan in particular, we have a real good chance of taking home a quality win on the road.
  • Illinois has a few chinks in the armor.  Okay, okay, I'll admit, their jump-shooting just looked uncharacteristically awful against UIC on Saturday, but still. They were having a hard time getting past the Flames' 1-3-1 defense. And we run it better! Now the only thing we need to figure out is how to break the full-court press...
  • I'm stoked about the 'Cats playing back-to-back games tonight and tomorrow, except for the fact that they're not on standard digital cable... at least, not here. $&@#*%^ Comcast. Someone keep me posted!
