1SE - are you doing this again this year?  If so, 2 yrs in a row should be denoted somehow.

Yes! And good idea - but rather than duplicate everything I'll just add a [x2] to each.

Lots of fertile ground for Shaka to uncover - especially in end of season accomplishments. But a top-25 kenpom offense in season is something new already.

Winning at effen ND is always an accomplishment. Embarrassing them is even more of one!

Pretty sure "Having the walk ons play at ND" wasn't on the list, but I will happily add that to the list!

In-season no matta, but wouldn't have expected a t-10 Kenpom O coming earlier in Shaka's tenure than a t-10 D.

     anyone feel their sphincters tighten a bit when SH went on that little 9-0 run with 3:40 cutting our lead to 10 with 1:38 remaining?

     kinda, but with the exception of the providence game, shaka has been able to minimize these 2nd half runs.  what i didn't take note of however, did shaka call a timeout at that point? 

   you've gotta love the 15-7 turnover advantage and shooting 54%.  the free throw shooting discrepancies (22-11) still bother me although we did make 73%.  someone did mention being at the game noting some questionable calls...again.  being a team on the edge, i hope the inconsistent calls are somehow addressed as we cannot afford too many more games such as providence. shaka does seem to have our guys well composed.

No.  The lead was still 10.  SHU had not shown a propensity to rain 3's and MU was handling their pressure.    Mildly irksome, not panic inducing.

What was irksome was Seton Hall was trying to foul with no calls, and MU wasn't trying to foul, but were called. Clougherty is a bytch.

5 game win streaks (x2) and added T-5 and #1 Kenpom O and D - who would have ever thought we'd have a top-5 offense - much less with this team.

Yeah, he blew Wednesday's game by not letting UConn stay within 2. Loser.

If only Oso and Stevie had missed a few free throws, then Shaka could have proven his close game coaching chops!

I mean, exactly. Goes to how ridiculous that close-game argument was.

Now, our last-second plays -- both the calls and execution -- is certainly subject to criticism.

But the blanket "can't win close games" was so stoopid.

Last season, we beat Nova after Kolek and Lewis fumbled a dribble-handoff but Lewis somehow got the ball back and flung one in for the win. Brilliant coaching and execution, right?

Wednesday is a close game win as was Villanova.

It's been fun bolding new things this season. But still no T-25 road win - let's change that tomorrow.
