Tough Win

What a performance by JDunc. Lavender and Burrell had the kind of games that spell 'l-o-s-s' but he steps up late in the game with a charge taken against Goldwire that nullifies his basket and prevents the 49ers from going up with less than two minutes to play. The he drains a 25' three to put it out of reach. Most will say we were 'lucky' to escape with a victory but I feel this team is finding ways to win and refusing to lose. Last year we would have dropped those games at SLU and Charlotte. Another tough one Monday night at Rhode Island but for now X can enjoy their #11 RPI rank. I expect one or both Burrell and Lavender to have huge games Monday and I think Duncan continues to play on another level.

Goldwire joins my all A10 team. We are now up to Christmas, Lisch, and Goldwire. A little guard heavy but those guys kicked our ass and deserve the recognition.
