What a big run at the end of the first half. Down 14 with under 2:00 to go, to cut that lead in half was huge for sure. Reed hits another trey as the clock winds down (I believe his only shot of the game?) and we take momentum into the locker room.
Travis Releford getting mucho minutes. HCBS liked the defensive matchup, yes? He played arguably his best basketball of the season last Saturday. Man, he has a chance to be a good 3 man.
Cole Aldrich has been up and down all year. He played great on Saturday when we needed him. Here's my thought on the Cole Train: he has yet to develop a "go to" move that will make him virtually unstoppable. All great post players have that. This is the sole reason I believe Mr. Aldrich will be back in Lawrence for his junior year and not test the NBA waters.
What is G? Sherron Collins. 21 points, 7 assists and 2 steals, leading the team to the Big XII regular season title, just phenomenal. Yes, you'd like to see him shoot a better percentage, but hey, 10 days ago he was in the middle of a tear that we haven't seen in Lawrence in quite some time offensively. DO NOT be surprised if he puts the team on his back in Oklahoma City this week.
The Morris twins are wreaking havoc in the Big XII. Yes, they foul too much. But can anyone discredit the fact that they are HUGELY improved even since, say, January? I don't think so.
Free throw shooting is going to be a big factor in KU's success in the postseason - any dissenters? I'll take 23-26 any day.
Got to be excited for this week. Hoping to take on OU for the title on Saturday and playing for a top seed. Rock Chalk!
