-- A W. Not pretty. An opponent with serious problems. But a BCS win over a program that had beaten us the last two years. Thank you sir, may I have another?
-- Whoa. I had layup nightmares last night. I think Vandy just drove right by a Wildcat defender to score another easy layup. And did Davidson just miss another layup?
-- Jordan Barham had a huge impact on the game. How is he not playing 25+ minutes? Barham and Brooks (and Mann) are the only players Davidson has who will take the ball to the hole without being totally intimidated. I hope that Jordan (the 6-4 freshman) will show Jake (6-11 senior) what it takes to be strong around the basket. Jake put up some really weak stuff yesterday.
-- What's up with the turnovers? Vandy didn't force any. The Cats made some really, really dumb ones. Nik, DeMon -- c'mon guys.
-- I haven't checked the replay yet, but initial reports are that Bob McKillop was NOT back in the locker room when Davidson employed this new-fangled zone defense thingy. If true, this may be evidence that Bob has been kidnapped and replaced by an imposter. Or maybe he had a high fever. Or maybe, just maybe, watching his defense allow guards to penetrate at will for the last 3 years and seeing that this season looks to be just as bad or worse caused him to decide to do something about it. Long-time Wildcat fans are still trying to come to grips with what they saw.
-- Vandy fans at Vandymania are depressed. They have good reason. The Dores are bad.
-- Davidson got a win. Badly needed. We'll take it and gladly. But we'd better be a whole lot better today against West Virginia.
-- Last time we played WVa, we won in Madison Square Garden in a strange game. We gave up a world record 293 offensive rebounds, but the Mountaineers shot a negative percentage from the free throw line to allow us to hang around. Steph Curry missed a ton of shots, but came up with a steal and two huge 3s from downtown in the final moments to lead the Cats.
EDIT -- oops. The last time we played Huggins was in PR and a loss two seasons ago. The MSG win was four years ago.
-- Davidson and West Virginia at 12:30 today on ESPN2. Go Cats!
Oops again. game is on ESPN.
