Happy March, Posse. Coming back from 18 down is fun, no? The Eagles average just under 80 points game and so when they had 54 at the half, things looked bleak. I’m not sure how much we could have done about Tyrese Rice, but it lead to our most inefficient defensive performance of the season. Of course, when someone shoots 93% eFG in the first half, that will happen. I don’t think our defense played well, obviously, but I doubt that was actually our worst effort. At any rate, it was a good thing we had our most efficient offensive performance of the season. I’ve heard some chatter about Q not responding well to Lawson being back. I think he was fine though. A few too many turnovers, but pretty solid play overall from the senior. I think he’ll do a fine job spelling Tywon and if Lawson gets into some foul trouble, Thomas has proved he can come in and do what we need. I’m looking forward to the loud reception he and Surry get tomorrow night. If Danny Green plays that well, Carolina will be a very tough out. Jeffrey Goodman now says we are the team to beat. Robbi Pickeral notes how important Tywon was on Saturday. Adam Lucas writes about how unlikely the game was. David Glenn explains selection criteria. 5 days until Dook, and 12 days until Selection Sunday!
Moneyball counter-intuitive? Premiership recaps and highlights. The rat gets his 800th kiss. Gus is in March form. 10 worst kits. Classy Brummies. Best Hockey names.
