We got 2 tix, $10 each, from some scalper at game time. It was GREAT! First half was pretty sloppy and Witherspoon was carrying them, but after the half they came back and had obviously listened to the coaches breaking it down for them as it was an entirely different scenario. Now, if they could all just step it up a bit more on D and DEFINITELY rebounding, we have a nice team this year; certainly not as budget as everyone was expecting.
I didn't know it sold out, but it was packed and we were on the very last row, center court. Still, that arena really doesn't have too many bad seats from my experience. Drew Barnham AND Preston Laird both came in too towards the end. Drew's first move was a dumb foul, but he followed up immediately with a 3 and the next 2. Will Coleman has potential to be a killah. Spoon and Williams are closer than Will to that stage already. It is actually really a relief to have no expectations this year. GO TIGERS!
And someone tell me, was that fucking ED HIGHTOWER reffing? I would not be surprised given some of his BS calls.
