Yes actually. The offense isn't pretty and looks much too effortful most of the time, but the defensive effort was fantastic. They scored nine points on their last four possessions, which means to that point we had held them to 54 points on 64 possessions. We were out on shooters, we were tough in the paint, and Josh was even blocking shots and forcing turnovers again. Similar to the ODU game, the team showed some chest to take a late lead on the road. Then they showed some a** to squander it all away.I'm not trying to constantly be a downer but did anyone really watch the first 38 mins thinking "wow we're killing it!"? Like Oduro certainly had his moments and we had flashes but the whole time I was thinking "man, both these teams are trying to lose". It's nice we were in it until the end I wasn't exactly overawed by anything.
The team needs a road breakthrough in the worst way and yes I really thought this was going to be it on the strength of the excellent defensive effort for 37 minutes and 45 seconds.
