They definitely called the 2nd half tighter than the first... Benefiting the Cru who ended up with a 2:1 FT advantage, somewhat expected due to UMHB's stronger inside presence.

The play where it appeared Lambert was fouled on a three, only to get only 2 FTs, then have them wiped out and the screener get sent to the line, was indeed odd.  At least with both guys only hitting 1-of-2 there was no impact on the outcome.

Does Trinity always play zone on D?  Thought that was a smart move by them as I'm not sure they could've matched up very well in man to man.

Last night was the first time for me to see them this season, but I think Coach Cunningham adapts the defense to the opponent.    No doubt that the Cru were a quicker, more athletic team so the zone was pretty much a necessity.

I would like to express my appreciation to UMHB's announcer, who did a great job announcing both teams respectfully and with sincere enthusiasm.     That's what D3 should be all about.  The spirit band also did a fine job of supporting the Cru.

Congratulations to both UMHB and McMurry on their fine seasons ... I'll be back tonight to see how Trinity deals with what appears to be a larger version (six players 6'6" or taller) of themselves.  Another huge uphill battle, and you can't depend on shooting threes at a 60% clip for a half too often.

I'd take the five of Addison/LaGarde/Miller/Jones/Barnes against any other D3 five. That would be sick.

Can someone closer to the UTD program please tell me why Barnes gets this kind of nod, but Kyle Schleigh does not even get honorable mention? Not that Barnes is bad by any means, but statistically they are so close (or better in Schleigh's case) I'm just confused.

Who do you like at point guard?

And HPU's Brandon Irwin, too.

Out of that group, probably LaGarde based on a better turnover rate than Addison, though it's really a toss-up between the two. I envision LaGarde running point, Addison rubbing off defenders on Steven Jones screens, and Barnes/Miller cutting and generally moving without the ball to maintain spacing. I'm not a coach though so that's about as specific as I can get. The group would probably be a little undersized defensively, but if you're quick enough you can make up for it.

I've often though it would be neat, though probably not nearly cost-effective, for there to be, say, an ASC-vs-SCAC all-star game using the 1st/2nd/3rd team selections as the rosters (or ASC West-vs-East). It'll never happen though, because of money and time.

To finally finish reporting the men's and women's individual numbers for 2011-12, I give you the steal and block rate leaders on my blog. Now, if I could just get around to starting on detailed historical numbers...

Looking forward to the new basketball season. As I understand it, UMHB is supposed to be strong again. Can't wait, but one thing I miss is the old gym. That place got loud with the close proximity to the court. Loved it! Go Cru!!
Watch out for the wreckingCRU defense!!
