    Wow! Faried has 2,000 pts and over 1,600 rebounds.

    Has anyone been 2,000/2,000 ??

  2. Smitty   March 19, 2011 at 3:32 pm

    Adrenalin seems to be getting the best of both teams. They are all long on their shots.

  3. Smitty   March 19, 2011 at 3:38 pm

    Answered my own question – Tom Gola from LaSalle with 2,462 points and 2,201 rebounds.

  4. Casey   March 19, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    I’m kinda surprised at how Richmond is attacking the Morehead zone. The Eagles are extending their 2-3. The Spiders are basically matching up with it. Go 1-3-1. Get someone on the baseline going gray to gray.

  5. Casey   March 19, 2011 at 4:05 pm

    Smitty – did you find the Gola answer in the A10 Media guide? 🙂

  6. Smitty   March 19, 2011 at 4:09 pm

    Casey, I should have but I didn’t know it would be A10 isolated. 🙂

  7. Smitty   March 19, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    This is a really tough match up for Justin Harper having to guard Faried.

    Just picked up his second foul – will Mooney have to sit him for the rest of the half? Probably should since they have the lead.

  8. Smitty   March 19, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    Dan Geriot is doing a great job on Faried.. so far.

  9. Casey   March 19, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    Is that Jack Sikma? No, it’s Dan Geriot. Great catch, pivot and jumper from the free throw line.

  10. Casey   March 19, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    That’s the Justin Harper that I saw last weekend. Catch-pivot-BANG!

  11. Casey   March 19, 2011 at 5:02 pm

    It’s about time the Spiders started to exploit the gaps in the zone – there is a lot of space at the foul line.

  12. Smitty   March 19, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    Agreed. They were getting good looks early – now they are finishing. The Spiders are putting on a clinic on how to break down the zone.

    “A little touch-a-roo!”
