I'll keep telling myself that was the case and not PSU folding like a cheap suit. M looked BAD the first half. There was absolutely no defense down low. JB even put Gibson in for some Gumby minutes and yanked him when it was obvious that wouldn't help.
Not sure what was up with Manny in the 1st half. He seemed confused and was constantly making bad judgements on defense as well as not taking a lot of shots that he should have taken.
The one constant was Novak. I think he was the only player on the floor all night and he was there frequently. The PSU fans were even giving him some love and a few asked me his name then would say he plays really tough. That was at halftime when they thought the game was a walk.
It seemed that LLP was the spark that set them off tonight. He was doing a lot of cheering and yelling from the bench, then when he did get in he was knocking down 3's in the 2nd half. 1-3-1 also helped a bunch in the 2nd half.
Even though we're not half through this year, I'm really excited about Morris. He's a really big PG and plays over his defender. Simms on the other hand seems to want to play small.
I think you should be able to see the pics I took at the game...
The best part was that my son got to see his idol, Novak. I wish we could have gotten an autograph for him. He must have told his buddy 100 times, "Now you see why I want my jersey number to be 0"
