We let another one go. Free throws and failing to get stops did us in after coming back from a 10 pt. deficit. Someone posted before tha Jones has FOH's number and they may be right. They did a nice job of keeping us off the 3pt line and denied back cuts. The guys played hard, but, can't seem to finish. Some of the young guys are starting to show promise. Zalys and Klinewski did some good things. The froshman, Evans, brought the crowd to it's feet with a block and a baseline drive that he finished with a hard jam! Sweet!

Painful loss, for sure, but still glad we made the trip.  I'm proud of the kids' effort to come all the way back to take a 6 point lead. If the Bostons thought our kids were gonna pack it in - wrong! At the end of regulation done in by a missed 1 and 1 and then leading by 2 with about 40 secs left a disastrous shot clock violation, giving them 12 secs to tie. And that was it.  Yeah, when was the last time we saw 2 dunks, let alone 2 freshman dunks, as Zalys followed Austins'.  Looking forward to 3 more years of those guys. Nick hit some loong 3s and Matt had one of his best games. Team very cold first half.  Back to Easton on Monday.

I can be critical of losing on this board but I love this team's effort and heart. We are going to be alright and we are going in the right direction. Having a guy like Klienewski who hates to lose is going to be fun going forward. These guys will not go down quietly.
I see good things going forward!!

Looks like Sam had his surgery on 12/3. Get well:


They will be a dangerous team in the PL tournament. They could beat any team on any night.
