that's unfortunate, but at least the interest is there on both sides
One positive of this is Nik Stauskas. He was named the most outstanding player of the 2013 Puerto Rico Tip-Off and was one point shy of setting the tournament record.
What a difference a year makes. He really did make good on his promise. Hopefully some of the freshmen follow his lead.
Looks like that 6:30 start isn't going to happen as the FSU vs Northeastern game still has 8 min left.
Anyway, here is an open thread for the game.
I found this site through Uncrate and I think these posters are pretty cool as I like graphic design and new ways of visualizing information. This is the link to the 1989 NCAA tournament poster but they also have posters for NBA, MLB, NHL, etc.
I have no connection to this site - just thought it might interest others as it did me
Props to a young man who recognized his deficiencies last March and worked like hell to be the leader of the team this year. Stauskas was emotional and honest with the fact that we needed more from him after the Title game last April. He vowed to hit the weights and work on his game. He did and the improvement in his game is pretty vivid. I called him to be our best player this year and am proud as hell that the kid kept his promise and put the work in. You're the man Stauskas! Go Blue!
A game like that deserves a postgame thread. That 16-point comeback was pretty impressive. Has a Beilein team ever come back from more than that? (Were we down that many to Kansas?)
How does Charlotte look? Are they a good matchup?
