What a difference in the 2nd half. Tightened up on defense. Drove the lane and took advantage of UBs foul trouble. Terrific effort.

A lot of intensity out there tonight on both sides. When UB has it rolling, they are amazing. Offensive powerhouse. Flashes had to weather a serious storm in the first half.

Man. Had to leave the house and we were down double digits. Checked the score once while out and about. Appeared it just wasn't going to happen. Got home clicked on the board and before I opened the thread checked to see how many we ended up losing by. Boy was I surprised! Great evening.

In more recent history Shayne Whittington played 2 years in the NBA out of WMU. His Jr year was very comparable to what AD is doing right now. He improved some in his Sr. year but not a crazy amount. And both of those guys stints were before the invention of the 2-way contract. If I was an NBA scout the big thing that would stand out to me is he's not blocking shots the way you would hope from a 7 footer and he turns it over too much. Other than that he checks off a lot of boxes scouts look for, size, length, moves well, free throw shooting, can hit mid range jumpers, plays with intensity. I'm not saying he's a lock by any means or that he'd ever get more that a cup of coffee. Just that I wouldn't be surprised if he's on the radar for teams this time next year.

I hear you...personally I think Whittington was much better than ADL but I certainly see the compairison to Big John. ADL's stats this season are probably significantly better than Edward's were as a Junior (John had Gates doing a lot of scoring and rebounding). The thing that made John stand out was his shot blocking...Very long arms, decent timing and a pretty hops.

ADL is gaining confidence and is getting better! He tends to play better against teams without much size in the post. Thought Toledo's post outclassed ADL. Let's see how he does against EMU. Should be interesting. Thank God we've got a big man worthy of discussing the NBA or P5 schools!

This was a great game for ADLR - he was at center most of the game, wrestling with either Ikenna Smart or Nick Perkins for the whole game. Smart fouled out with 4 minutes left, Perkins got sent off with a double T in the last minute. De La Rosa ends up with 20 in 38 tough minutes. There were a bunch of bad feelings and stuff that didn't get called.

Pippen also had 21 points and 13 rebounds.

It was sloppy defense and wild shots in the first half. In a previous post, I said I didn't think Senderhoff was preparing the team well this year, but he pushed the right buttons tonight, and got the team playing well at the end. The game started 43-25 Buffalo, and over the last 21 minutes it was 57-36 Kent State

Some thoughts. Buffalo is really good. That last 15 minutes or so is the best I've seen Kent players all year. Pippen was an absolute monster. Buffalo did a really good job of taking our top two perimeter scorers away for most of game. Credit to Avery and Pippen, they stepped up when needed. When we were down big and it was looking bad Perkins from UB might have helped us out a lot. He gave a two hand shove to AD mid play that wasn't called. It got the crowd really fired up and it seemed the team as well.

Amazing. Walker is shut down for 25+ minutes and ends up with 13, Zabo only has 8(although he did have a big three late) and Delarosa, Pippen and Avery carry us to 80+ points. Who would have predicted that. That was the most exciting game from start to finish in quite awhile.

All I have to say tonight is, if you were at the game tonight, you deserve credit for the win. I know attendance isn't what it once was, but tonight really felt like like the good old days in the old barn.

RE: Kent State vs Buffalo
Oh, and this one deserves a post of it's own... The big shot AD made late was huge in so many ways. He went to his left hand! His left hand! He literally never goes to the left. Guys over play him to the right and he still works his way back to it. The left is usually wide open for him. If he starts scoring with his left he's going to be so difficult to defend. And it was clear he wanted everyone to know he did it with his left. He held his left hand up the whole way down court a la John Wall.

Loved how we took advantage of Buffalo's foul trouble. I wascritical of Sendy's offense for years. The plays are running smooth now and the team looks like a well-oiled machine.
Can't wait to head to BG Saturday!

YES! I almost didn't go because of a rough day at work. That crowd was fun from the student section to the rafters. The way things were 15 years ago!
