They've really done a great job thus far. The main level bathrooms are really nice and very large. It's enclosed now, so it looks more like an arena and you don't see the crappy looking corners on TV in the background. And you're still as close to the court as anywhere in the country. It's also air conditioned now, and it doesn't feel hot and cramped like it used to. Also, from what I've been told, the locker rooms are as nice as anywhere else. So based on those factors, I can see what teams are more likely to schedule games here when they may have shied away in the past.

The DAC is not finished though and still has a lot of work to do. The still need new scoreboards and better lighting. But I'll say that I'm not embarrassed by it anymore they way that I used to be.

Crowd looks sparse, especially the students. Would have hoped right after finals there would be enough around and excited over this game.

First media timeout 17-6. Playing very well. Getting open looks from 3 and making them. Rodney is working and being aggressive, which is nice to see.

RE: St. Joes
Forced to play zone due to a lot of fouls piling up. Iceman and Mojica with 2

RE: St. Joes
Tough break at the end with that shot falling. 38-34 up at half. Lots of fouls that will be a story in this one. Moran and Iceman with 3 fouls each. Foul shooting has been very poor led by Rodney. Hopefully we can start moving our feet and reward ourselves with made free throws. 9-16 in the first half just won't cut it. Despite our back against the wall with fouls, it is nice that we led the entire first half and kept finding new ways to keep scoring even with a forced rotation. Green's 5 points was a nice push off of the bench

8 minutes left Mojica fouled out, but he brought it on himself when he picked the early technical in the second half.

Under 8 timeout. 57-54 St Joes. We are losing our composure and making a lot of unforced errors many which are turnovers. Self inflicted mistakes.

Rodney's carrying this team for sure. Up to 27 points and a double-double
