Miami Recap

We will take a 60-53 win especially after being down by 11 in the first half. DBrown is the first X player this year to score over 18 when he poured in 23 last night. The trio of Anderson, Raymond, and Brown has willed us to 6-0. With Holloway out and Dante' suffering from leg cramps (too much holiday wine?) Raymond played point the last 10 minutes of the game. Yikes! He did hit the go ahead 3 but remains in a shooting slump. We were only 22-38 from the FT line and that poor shooting has to improve soon. Miller said it best "It's all about surviving more than anything". With Auburn coming in Wednesday we will need either Redford, Walsh, or Frease to step up. McLean was solid again with 5 and 5 off the bench but he needs to watch some Rick Mount tapes on free throw shooting, geez louise some of his 'attempts' yesterday were gawd awful. But hey we are still in the top 20 and Miami is always a good 'rivalry' game.

Also it looks like Jordan Crawford will not be playing this year. Expect an announcement early this week from the NCAA. Again I have accepted this for some time now and I remain excited about the potential of this team.

One last note: I would be remiss if I didn't mention the UD Flyers nice 89-75 win over #15 Marquette on a neutral floor last night. They ran with Marquette and went 12 deep for the win. Juco guard Rob Lowery had 21 off the bench and Wright had a double double. Hopefully that is the last nice thing I post for the Flyers this season. :) Top 25 love anyone?
