Have to go with Garcia. Nice to see him finishing a bunch inside and off drives. Early on in the season it seems he would get stuffed on many of those due to getting smaller (ala Joey H)  rather than going up to the bucket and finishing strong.

Great contributions from Koby, DJ, Justin and Theo tonight. Loved the effort all around.

Great point, SW. He had one move in particular where he went full steam ahead to the front of the hoop and dared PU to stop him. They couldn't, and he banked it home.

Looks like Garcia is learning about head fakes as earlier in the year, he would go straight up and get the ball slammed down his throat.   Garcia even though is tall
plays somewhat small as he has no vertical yet.  That will come when he gets stronger and more mature.  Tonight, he showed great versatility inside and out, it
was nice to see.  Much like Lewis finally hitting a shot or two, but that dunk was the play of the game, even though the 3 he hit from the corner was more critical.

Close but Koby.

More complete game on both ends. 5 assists to 0 TO has to be about his best performance on that metric ever.

Koby.  Close over Garcia, but felt him making Duke work so hard was important.

Koby showed senior leadership and toughness. There was a lot of positives in this game. Justin plays and looks 6'9". Carton can score at will on layups with his quickness similar Dean the Dream. Garcia plays with more authority every game. Theo played strong. We needed a good game like this to get back on track.

Dawson Garcia. He's really developing into a leader.

McEwen honorable mention. He was good, but the defense on Duke was a team effort, with Carton & Cain having good defensive possessions on him as well.

J Lew. Got called for a foul, teammates and bench give him the stay straight up motion. Next time he is in that position, stays straight up, we get the ball, tip dunk, three soon after. Ballgame.

Dawson and Koby should put up good numbers, and nothing against their fantastic better than expected games, but I always look to the guy who does more than expected and impacts the win a little differently.

Okay, fine, Dawson!

Regardless of who is selected for the Providence game, Koby has been a Warrior all season. Unlike last season and perhaps most related to his hand injury, he is now a threat from 3 and can finish at the basket. He guards the oppositions best perimeter player yet avoids foul trouble, critical based on our lack of depth, and has taken a true leadership role with his talk and actions.

This is huge, because you need someone who can steady the ship. When things get tough, Koby is probably too emotional, DJ tends to force it, and Lewis' effort ebbs and flows. But so far Dawson has shown the ability to keep calm and make the right decisions.

Agree on all of this.

It was sad to see so many supposed Marquette fans not just bail on Koby last season (and into this season) but be very mean-spirited and downright cruel in their assessments of him. It reminded me of the way some went after Lockett, but it really was worse. Very personal attacks.

Koby is not a star. But he is a legit P6 player with some definite strengths and a lot of passion for the game. Love having him on the team.

Agree with this. DJ's aggressiveness has paid off a lot at the end of big games but it won't always work out. Dawson has been the steadying force.

That is the correct spelling. Actually my grandmothers last name on my fathers side.

My dad went to college in San Antonio and had a fraternity brother with that last name that pronounced it "Garsha". 
Have some patience, FFS.

The whole accent thing is something that gets whitewashed by computers/printers that don't always include the special characters.  My students complain that their names are "spelled wrong" on our official school portals and there's really nothing we can do about it because Powerschool doesn't recognize those characters.  There was a big MLB campaign a few years ago by players (like former Brewer Hernán Pérez) to get uniforms to include accent marks.  As far as I can remember, no MU players have used accents or special characters (like the ñ or that French ç thing) on uniforms in the past.  None of Marquette's official websites use the í in Garcia's name, nor does the JS, though it is common.

LOL people are getting a little too serious. I was just pointing out the correct spelling in Spanish. The accent tells you the way to pronounce the word or like "este" and "esté" are two different words with two distinct meanings.

For what it's worth, I'm watching coverage of the House proceedings right now and the last two Congresspeople to speak were both named Garcia.  One was spelled Jesús García and the other was Sylvia Garcia.  Both can be correct.

We don't know if Dawson spells his name with an i or and í because Marquette's publications don't say.
