Very disappointing finish to the season for this SLU squad. Controlled the game to about midway through the 2nd half and then just collapsed in the paint defensively. Allowed almost 40 SJF bench points. I counted about 12 uncontested layups given up in the 2nd half. They battled back down 6 to tie it with about 30 seconds left, but committed an HORRIFIC foul at half court with 27 seconds left that set off an implosion. SJF made the first free throw, missed the 2nd and then SLU turns the ball over in the backcourt. Another quick foul sent SJF, and they again made the first and missed the 2nd but SLU gave up an offensive board which sealed it.
Very disappointing way for the seniors to go out. They had a good season, and outperformed most expectations. This program still has yet to exceed that 08-09 squad.
Nice to see Skidmore and Union get wins and continue to represent the league!
