I have to agree his late game FTs have been HUGE so far.
At my house we were begging Musselman to get him on the court in the final 90 seconds.
Once he came in and got fouled i said “Lykes for the win”
And I was thinking “The Iceman cometh.”
Plus it’s not that easy to come in ice cold off the bench then immediately go to the FT line. He was dialed in tho.
It takes a man of unusual grit to accomplish what Chris Lykes has at this level of basketball. He is fearless and smart. Sure glad we have had him this season, 11/11 free throws in this tournament. ICE MAN COMETH means you other guys are at the end of your rope.
Coach has done a great job of developing Chris’s role on the team.
beat Vermont by 4
beat New Mexico State by 5
beat Gonzaga by 6
beat Duke by 7?..are we going for a straight?
Sounds good to me.
Chris had to accept the role too. He could have sulked and been a cancer, but he seems to relish being in this position on a team that’s rolling.
Chris’ nickname should be “The Closer.”
He is MONEY!!! way to go Chris!
Most importantly he is a Razorback that takes the air out of the ball for the opposing team at the edge of their rope. As Dandy Don would say, “Turn out the lights, this party is over.”.
I’ve gotten to know Chris and Stanley more than the other transfers this season.
Both seem like great young men.
Happy to see Chris getting some love after being ragged pretty hard earlier in the season - especially on Twitter.
So true Dudley.
Dad hammered in my head “if you have nothing good to say about someone, say nothing at all”. He was a smart man.
