    He hurts us as much as Simonds (GAST).

    Then, we need to run a playground defense!

    Gant did not play much due to foul trouble and that was a reason the Georgia Southern guards were able to score inside, especially late in the game. He is key to protecting the rim. Note, the two minutes he played late in the first half is when we retook the lead. That gave us momentum to finish strong in the half. He was also a key to us stretching out the lead in the 2nd half.

    Here are a few other positives. Dominated the boards after struggling the other night there. Also, Stove had an outstanding game in many facets. I think he had a career high in points. He scored from the line, from the three, and by driving to the goal. He also had several rebounds. Good for the senior. Also, our bench did contribute well. Just talked about Stove. Miller had a solid game, Russell hit a big three late in the half, and Davis was more than solid in his time. 6 points from him were huge in his time. Good to see the team handle disappointment as well as they have handled success.

    Louisiana is one of five schools nationally (as of Feb. 8) that have won seven or more games on the road and are undefeated at home. The Ragin' Cajuns are joined by Virginia, St. Mary's, Montana and UC Santa Barbara.

    Louisiana has now won 8 games on the road.

    If fans like offense then they should like the Cajuns.

    Since the 2013-14 season, Louisiana has recorded 86 games with 80 or more points scored - the fifth-most by any Division I school during that span and trailing North Carolina (101), BYU (98), Gonzaga (92) and Duke (92).

    It is now 87 games.

    On the other hand, I wonder how many times Louisiana has scored more than 80 and lost!

    Mike, I watched the game. You can't defend the same way when Gant is not in the game defending the basket. You have to make adjustments .

    I imagine that our blocks were minimal without Gant?

    They literally got called for fouls for breathing on an opponent. Additionally, refs would let a "foul" go, but when it was advantageous for the defense, they would blow a delayed whistle. I noticed that more than several times.

    We did, and that is why he drove to the basket at will in the second half.

    As the conference leader, we're going to get everyone's best shot. Maybe the refs best shot, too. Especially on the road. Looking forward to next Thursday's home game.

    With apologies to Turbine, Johnathan's performance was in a Hot Stove League of his own.

    Agree with that view. We should play more zone when Gant is on the bench. Coach just does not like to do that very often. Worked well for us at Nicholls early in year. Coach has a philosophy though that he wants to limit threes from whoever we play. Countless times he has said the game plan was to run the opponent off the three point line.

    Senior Johnathan Stove enters today's game 25 points shy of reaching the 1,000-point mark.

    Congratulations Johnathan on reaching 1,003 career points.
    Good game!

    You always want consistency from officials. They were consistently lost from the little I watched.

    He was outstanding today. If there were a 6th man of year award in league, he would get my vote. Glad to see hom having more success finishing at rim this season. Hard to believe regular season ends three weeks from tonight

    ........getting back to the announcers, I liked the way they knew so much about their team and projected their different scenarios for the year....also kept referring tp us as the best team in the league!!!
