Three Ws in a row. This team is playing much better and remains tied for the lead in the West.

Huge road win! The Rockets never trailed in the game. Great to start 3-1 in MAC play! The Rockets have won 6 of their last 7 games

It’s really starting to look like this team has what it takes. Confidence, moxie, and shooters galore. This could be fun to watch.

Was otherwise occupied so couldn’t listen to the game or even keep up on the Board here, so just getting caught up. Nice road win—we need to ge able to sweep some teams in the West and this is a good start. I give credit when due; looks like the Rockets could have faltered a few times and almost giving up leads, but they didn’t. Good trends the last couple games.

RE: MBB @ CMU
Strong win.
Team came out like they were top 25. Fast, precise, moving the ball, draining open shots, in control on defense.
Midway through the first half we went cold and then they started getting a lot of calls and making some free throws to tighten it up. Second half started out the same way. We were called for 5 could in the first 4 minutes and weren't even playing that physical.
But over the second half we eventually re-established ourselves as the better team.

Fletcher was as good as I've seen him. Great in the midrange using a dribble to get space and then height to shoot over slightly out of position defenders.

Willie Jackson had his best game and finally seemed to find a home on the offensive glass. He is too quick for most MAC forwards around the basket and seems to be pressing a little less and realizing where he has an advantage.

Sanford again started slow but had a great second half. Had a pretty vicious dunk at a time when we needed it. Not quite JD Weatherspoon sports center kind but close.

Justin Roberts was sharp and shot with confidence. Ditto Navigato. Both really benefitted from good passing that allowed them to comfortably step into shots. Team did a lot pro style driving the lane to pass back out to open 3 point shooters.

MAC is down at the top-besides Buffalo. League probably has a better bottom third than it's had in a decade but is so-so from below Buffalo. Rockets have a real chance to win the West and finish 2nd in the league. Need to see continued improvement on defense and this recent crunch time confidence to continue to hope for a league title-we aren't quite as gifted a team as the better Coach K teams- remember the one with Juice, Boothe, Pearson, Weatherspoon, Drummond, Jonjon, Lauf, Matt Smith that couldn't make the ncaas? that team had some talent, but this one might be developing better chemistry. Need it to peak in March. Go Rockets!

RE: MBB @ CMU
Had some good times going to watch UT play at CMU. They used to do a whiteout where on their first made bucket EVERYONE threw rolls of toilet paper on the court. They'd have to stop the game to clean up the mess. Then there was Joey Baggadonuts - a rotund fan who would stand under the basket and raise his t shirt when we were trying to shoot a foul shot.
