I'm assuming that those VBB who live in DC are making their way home from the Verizon Center at this point. I'd be curious to know if the 'Cuse fans were as loud in person as they sounded on ESPN. Sounded like it was a pretty good mix of folks.
While I can't say I watched all 45 minutes, I can say that I watched enough to know that the better team didn't win tonight. As much as it pains me to say, the 'Cuse out played G'town for much of the game. I'll take the conference win and first place in BE, but no reason that the game should have been that close. I missed the opening 3 minutes of the 2nd half so I can't say if it was our poor defense / offense or if the 'Cuse stepped up to try to go for the upset. Based on what I saw, it seemed like a little bit of both.
Jeremiah had some big plays as did Sapp. River's played some great defense down the stretch. Wallace hit the 3 in the pinch. For those who were at the game and didn't hear the ESPN commentary, Wallace got a lot of kudos. While I can't remember who said it, one did refer to Wallace as a "great college player". He got a lot of props for hitting the 3 and playing overall smart ball. Of course, as they said this he created a nice turnover.
Is it me, or does Roy just not really seem to show up until the last minute of the game. He sort of reminds of me of Eli Manning - plays blah for 3/4 of the game and then spends the last 1/4 trying to dig himself out of a self created hole. I must say that despite the points & boards tonight, I have remained unimpressed with Roy this year. When the game is tight, I'm just not comfortable which Roy will show up.
Another solid game for the defense. Unless I was confusing the stats as they went by on the screen, 'Cuse has been averaging about 85 points a game. If that's the case, tremedous effort to bring them to the GU average of 57 points a game.
