1.) Welcome back Gabe. Mr. Knutson, battling a knee injury, really showed some heart in his season debute to the tune of: 27 minutes, 4 rebounds, 3 blocks. That is why we call him Captain Knutson, gutty effort, love the heart on this kid.
2.) Well rounded effort – The big 4 that have to carry LU this year played like stars tonight, in CJ, Gabe, Holden and Mackey. All ended up in double figures, totaling 58 points, nice well rounded effort.
3.) 19 assists on 31 made field goals, pretty sure the staff is happy with that statistic. Mackey with 7 dimes and Corey with 4 and another solid game from the soph guard. Corey had 4 points, 4 dimes, 2 steals and a rebound.
4.) Dead-Eye Cvrkalj – 3 from 6 from deep, 11 points, instant offense off the bench. You have to account for him once he crosses half court, a nice weapon off the bench for Lehigh this year.
5.) Nice rebound effort by the brown & white, clearly the team was disapointed with the Baylor showing, nice to see the focus and well rounded effort off the bat tonight. You can learn a lot about a team in any sport by watching how the follow-up a tough loss, and clearly this team was ready to play. Kudos to the staff on prepping them to play on short notice.
Just a few reminders of a few things to do tonight before bed folks: Load the fridge up tonight with the best beverage of choice and get it nice and cold for tomorrow night. Set the DVR for 9 PM ET on channel ESPNU. Another shot at a BCS conference team, on the road, should be a fun one.
