I couldn’t watch the game, but either the radio post-game or news highlights mentioned that we “wore down” UNT. That seems remarkable to me, given our 8 scholarship players. I’ve watched highlights this am, we were playing very aggressive defense (blocked 2 3-pointers?!?!?).
So I guess we are in phenomenal shape, these kids have really been working hard this off season.
On the other hand, in the middle of conference, playing 2 games a week, with travel and all the teams we’ll play that are sooooo much taller than we are, it’s hard to imagine us maintaining this effort. At some point bodies just wear out.
Very interesting season, but so far I am really impressed with our team’s effort, conditioning and defense. Should be fun to watch how they attack better teams.
