    Anyone has a number on how many lay ups South Al missed? After missing one towards the end, their coaches were laughing because it was one of those nights that we all know too well.

    They missed a lot, but made a lot too! LOL!

    I don't think we played well. I just think South Al was very bad offensively. Couldn't buy a bucket.

    Having said that, I appreciate the effort. Team is still playing hard. It still matters to them. That's a good sign for next year.

    Team played much better defensively than recently. Stalcup and Brown playing more is reason. Someone asked why i have had few comments recently and reason is there has been little positive to say recently and others have pointed out problems that all see. Big question i have is why has Stalcup not played more before tonight. Miller knee issues limit him on defense and he has been playing too many minutes recently. He will do better on defense if he does not have to play as much

    The reason they lost the game was that they made, I recall, one of nineteen three point attempts. We are going to not let them get second chance points of most of those missed three points. There were indeed a lot of uncontested layups. They often made the defender look silly.

    I'm very happy with the victory because I definitely did not think they were going to win three more before last night. Still a big mountain as I see 50/50 vs Tx St, and the road rest 40/60 chance. Don't think they can beat Arlington.

    Mike, I think Stalcup had a great game. Someone had posted some time back that our losing started just after Scott Plaisance transferred out; the more I have seen us play the more I believe this is more than coincidence. Scotty would and could get into foul trouble but he was a big athletic guy that could have helped.

    We need Stalcup getting some minutes; I hope Brown is able to lock down better defensively; he's got good hops and can help with the rebounding for sure.

    Stalcup had his best game, by far. My favorite thing he did last night was provide presence on defense. Also a lot of activity on the offensive glass.

    He had a couple of very nice passes as well.

    ---AND

    -I finally saw him get PIZZED OFF---after one call he kinda slammed the ball down on the court and as the guys in the hood of our section agreed ---he is now getting to be an intricate and much needed added part of the Ragin' Cajun basketball team!!!

    There were few uncontested layups when Stalcup was in. In addition to four blocked shots, he altered several others. Other factor last night was Jay Wright holding Ken Williams to a 3 of 14 night. Williams is an all conference guard. Give Jay credit for doing this while playing with a hand injury. Jay does not always make the right decisions but the kid always plays as hard as anyone on the floor.

    I'm very happy with the victory because I definitely did not think they were going to win three more before last night. Still a big mountain as I see 50/50 vs Tx St, and the road rest 40/60 chance. Don't think they can beat Arlington.

    Defense was fine at rim with Stalcup in game. I bet he plays more going forward. Agree it will be tough to get three wins following Saturday game. At least we have one at this point.

    Mike, I think Jay should avoid the lay ups. He is rejected far more often than being successful. Cleary he should do it sometimes, but really he simply should be sure he can get the shots. He really does not get fouled often enough to do it so regularly. His drive to the basket should be with the intention of passing to another player.

    In referring to jay being unsuccessful driving and trying layups....he is far more successful when he has driven the lane and passed or pulled up for a mid ranger

    I agree that Jay should shoot more mid range shots when he drives and pass to the wing when challenged inside. Still, you have to admit the kid plays hard.

    The bench contributed 31 points in 89 minutes. I didn't check but I would guess that is the most points and minutes from the bench in a conference game this year. If we can continue to get production like this I hope it translates into a productive run down the stretch.

    ---Over the last (WHAT) 4 years I have shouted "NOOOOO" so many times as he is about to release a 3 point attempt or takes off driving for the basket

    and I have to say it has been sorrow and joy

    -"NOOOOO" and the 3 point SWIIISH

    "NOOOOO" and the contortionist movements that end with a banked in lay up

    But the have been all "YYYYYEEEESSSSes" for his motor and just unreal hustle and no fear performances!!!
