Josh - he kept the HamSan(dwich) out of the game offensively, got his on the offensive end, and made the best attempt of a Zag since Calvary at destroying a backboard.

Josh.
Double-Double. Took a key charge. hit foul shots.
Matty a close second, but those two missed free-throws at the end closed the deal.
Josh. Josh. Josh!!!!!

For playing heads up hoops when he had three fouls, for his hustle on the boards, his free throws ( we needed every one of them tonight ) and for what looked to this TV viewer to be a great sense of POISE under PRESSURE:

Josh !

HM: Matt B.

Josh for the entire game. Big Will for minutes played. We have got to play him more. He totally shut down the inside. I loved it when he and josh were on the floor together.

I think this was Josh's best game all year. He was everywhere.
10 rebounds 1 assist 3 blocks 20 points.

A beautiful game. MB = Stud!
Foster made a huge difference.

Josh takes it though.

And I liked his post-game interview too.

Josh had a good game too, and I particularly liked his rebounds.

Kudos to Big Will Foster for his extremely important minutes!

Josh. Josh's best game, easily. I think his second half against Memphis is going to give him a lot of confidence. Josh made play after play to keep us in the game until Matt got his game going. Once Matt found his game he played awesome. He shot very poorly from the line though. I think he needs to take more time at the stripe.

Yes. Will played great. He's easily the best guy down low after Josh. When he is in we have no problem with rebounding at all, compared to when Austin is in. I hope Few really reconsiders what he is doing.

Good point about Will being GUnit based on stats per minutes played.
And Matt had another great game with his driving.
But Josh did it all - defense against Samham, blocks, free throw percentage, and a double-double!

Easy for me. Heytvelt with the double-double, outstanding post defense, and 11 FT's made.

Bouldin a close 2nd with his consistency and answering every one of St. Mary's big shots or runs.

Josh player of the game.

Micah needs to learn how to block shots other then completely hitting the ball with no body contact. Well except for the other guy pushing off with his left hand. I don't think the officials will like how terrible those 2 foul calls were. I think if Micah was in the parking lot, they would have still called the fouls on him.

Josh gets the nod - his play on both ends was solid. Matt had a shot until the charity stripe bricks in the endgame, but still a solid effort.

OT - What is up with Josh's FT shooting lately? They have been looking fantastic. Smooth rhythm, great touch - am I missing some new development?

Josh has always had a good shooting form. Kinda surprised that you're surprised.

Josh. Had a terrific all around game. He was active defensively and really helped take the paint away from SMC.

Josh and Austin - 29 points
Simpson, Samhan, and Walker - 23 points

Our two starting 'bigs' beat their three starting bigs.

Matt & Josh were the dynamic duo, but I want to give a game ball to "Big Will" who gave us 13 good & useful minutes. The big kid deserves a pat on the back.

Josh was awesome on both ends.
Matt carried us offensively from when we were struggling to close that 49-44 score to the end. He needs to make those two free throws at the end.

Three Stars:
1. Heytvelt
2. Bouldin
3. Pargo

I'm picking Josh, but for a different reason then what has been mentioned.

Sometime in the first half, Daye picked up a cheap foul. It was one of those he should've, could've, would've prevented in retrospect. I could see on Daye's face the welling emotion. The head wagging, shoulder shrugging bouts of frustration was about to spew from him....until...

Josh slid over a slapped his shoulder, made eye-contact with Daye and gave him a reassuring, but stern head nod. It was almost to say "Hey we discussed this. You're okay and we are going to fight together. Shake it off" Daye was emotionally level throughout the game and JH's influence seemed to be the trick.

Did not see, so thanks for pointing it out. This is awesome.


Gotta go with Josh also, but for a different reason then anyone has said. Josh really was focused last night. From the beginning of the game to the very end. If everyone had Josh's focus last night every game we would be hard to beat. Here's to Josh remaining focused the rest of the year. He could help go deep in the dance.

Bouldin shot the ball well but I have to vote for Heytvelt. He played great for 40 minutes; he stayed aggressive the whole game. If only he could have played like that with any consistency throughout his career.
