    Norvell has to be the best top speed finisher ever. I am gonna miss his breakneck drives and spectacular finishes.

    Pretty cool to think that we beat the national champs.

    Wow! That was a fun game to watch! I liked Coach K's press conference too.

    No doubt.

    Zach showed off his ability to drive -- and finish -- in workouts and combine as well.

    Still can't figure out why we didn't see more of it, especially when a dribble-drive threat was the missing element from our team this season.

    We saw glimpses/flashes, in a few marquee OOC games, yet Norvell became a full-time 3pt specialist in WCC and post-season play.

    I felt a perimeter dribble drive threat, beat your man to the hoop was precisely what we needed vs Texas Tech. Zach was the one guy who could do it at a high level, and we just didn't see enough of this part of his game.

    It is also one of the primary reasons I feel he needed to return next season -- to show off this ability, and also prove his PG skills from time to to time.

    My WAG....Snax took hard hits making rim runs...I feared for his health (knees specially) I'm guessing he went hard early and backed off for preservation of his health...good business decision IMO

    Thanks for posting that.... was a heck of a lot of fun to re-watch. Still got nervous even though I knew the result.
