I guess Andy Bernard is right: Corne-e-ell is not to be f*cked with. Can I call a trap game or what?
All the ingredients for a KU loss were there: a senior-laden, tourney-tested opponent shooting over 50% till late in the game; Self drawing techs; Tyshawn and Brady fighting over defensive assignments; and every KU player other than Sherron and Cole going 0-fer on two-point attempts (yes, you read that right).
One thing seems clear: This team doesn't have the overall balance that the '08 group did. Our most talented guys are Sherron, Cole, and a bunch of underclassmen -- all of whom played like underclassmen last night.
However, this team has one thing that the '08 team did not: Sherron Collins as a senior. I'll paste from Yancy's earlier comment:
9-16 field goals (including 2 of 5 from 3);
13-14 from the line (!);
and only 1 turnover. Damn.
Wasn't exactly fun to watch that game, but there's probably something good about having to struggle once in a while...
See highlight reel for some great plays by Sherron -- and Cornell's Wittman. They could be this year's Davidson.
