    Wow, where has this intensity been since the season started?

    Obviously SOMETHING happened over the Christmas break to bring these guys together because this is the first time I’ve seen them play as a team plus they were hitting on all cylinders.

    53.8% from the field, 40% from three, 76.9% from the line –

    Crisp passing, good ball movement, assertive drives and shots, tenacious D – IS THIS THE SAME TEAM?

    If THIS team was on the floor for all the games so far they’d be 12-2 or 11-3 at worst.

    It’ll be an uphill battle to get to the tourney but there’s still an outside chance based on this performance.

    Happy with the performance, but where was this type of intensity all year? Very frustrating.
