I'm glad we got this one, but I'm not sure about the return trip to dallas, that's gonna be a tough battle up there, especially if they get their top scorer back.

Speaking of... maybe Sampson needs to let Brooks start getting some of Gray's minutes... dude was on fire and then Rob Gray would go and try and put the fire right back out tonight. I know he's a senior and trying to be a leader, but leaders don't let your guy sneak by and get the dish for the slam, and then act like it's someone else's fault. He did get that steal late to help ice the game, but at least hit your free throws. I think he was 3 of 5? Well, all will be forgiven if he shows up against cincy but they smothered him so bad up in cincy. I dunno.

Ok, I feel better. GO COOGS!

ummm nooooo

brooks is spot shooter...
rob is a drastically better all around player....rob hasnt hit a shot longer than 4 feet in like 5 games and he is still doing 18 a game...
if brooks is off he is getting nothing, he went 0-8 vs usf

and ever thought the reason brooks was getting wide open looks is because they were focused on stopping gray?
brooks is a great compliment player, but you don't take minutes from your star for a spot shooter

I agree with everything you have said. Gray was slicing up the zone in the second half and either dishing to Brooks for a wide open three, or taking the ball to the rack and scoring. Rob closed this game out for us. You don’t take minutes away from the AAC player of the year.

The Bearcats are paper people for panic. I trust he will dispose of them properly.

OK, very valid point.

I checked the minutes after I got home and saw Brooks got a good 32 minutes in the game. It felt like much less when watching the game.

Now that I can look back at the replay, it seems we were missing the usual scoring effort from both Davis' last night. That's 3 scoring punches we were missing in the first half and might have cost us if the 3rd one (Gray) didn't get it going somewhat eventually.

I will try to contain my concern for Gray's continued shooting slump (by his standard) and just hope he shows up for the games we'll really need him.

Grey was not much of a factor against UC. The Davis guys you have were very good against us if I recall correctly.
