In the second half we were a completely different team. We shot over 70 percent. We locked down on defense. We turned that 11-2 run into a 30-4 run. The Johnnies basically gave up, and it ended as a blow out.
But the story of the game was Jeff. He finally played agressive and he finally looked good. I guess he must have felt some pressure after Roy had a career night against Cincinnati. So he went out and did the same. Jeff had a career high 24 points. But in true Jeff Green fashion he really did everything. A quick glance at the stats for the game leaders in last night's contest tells the whole story:
|Points||J. Green 24||A. Patterson 16|
|Rebounds||J. Green 8||A. Patterson 8|
|Assists||J. Green 4||A. Mason Jr. 4|
|Steals||J. Green 2||E. Lawrence 3|
|Blocks||R. Hibberts 3||A. Mason Jr. 1|
On to Lousiville. This game will be our biggest challenge in quite awhile. The Cardinals are one of the hottest teams in the conference and are tied with the Hoyas for second place in the Big East. If we plan on making any real noise this season it starts with going into Lousiville and stealing one from them at home.
