GL to everyone tonight. And by that I mean good luck to pretty much just Whitworth  ;)

I'm confident Whitworth is as good as we've all led you to believe, but there is a reason McMurry is in the tourney. A 2,000 mile road trip can cause funny things to happen...Should be a good one!

Well, if you really want to have a discussion, I'll throw this out there:

Chris Barnes should not have won East POY, and it should have gone to Jeremy LaGarde of ETBU. Statistical case to follow later tonight/tomorrow when I have my data available (I hate closing shifts at call centers).

It should be a good one.  Will be interesting to see how these two match up.

I like to imagine this McMurry-Whitworth game in terms of a chess match.

Even the knight can capture a queen...not likely but possible.

I'll be driving up to Belton shortly.   There should be someone there to support Trinity, after all.   8-)

Whitworth 41 McMurry 37  at the half. McMurry led 20-19 at the 10 minurte mark but it has been a 2-5 point Whitworth lead for much of the half.

McMurry has not been shooting well at all. Don't know if they've hit a shot outside of 5-10 ft (other than FTs). But defensively their guards are all over the place. 11 Whitworth TO's in the first half. The big reason this one has been so close all half.

Friedt has 16
Perez has been impressive down low, leads McMurry with 9

We were down 78-74 with about 2:18 left and had a chance to cut it. We had a turnover that broke the momentum.

This was a 2-possession game until the last 2 minutes.

Good performance by McMurry. I hope that we have taken something out of the Whitworth legs.  I know that Whitworth was substituting liberally at the end of the game. Those may have been situational substitutions.

Best guard play Whitworth has seen defensively. And it's not even close. 21 turnovers, 15 of which were steals! Unreal. Perez was big off the bench. Just couldn't get shots to fall from long range. GL in DII

EDIT: Just heard Whitworth outrebounded McMurry. Don't know how that happened, a ton of offensive boards and second chance shots absolutely killed Whitworth for most of the game.
