It’s going to be an up and down season. For the first half against La Salle in Cancun, it couldn’t be more down. All of the offensive problems the Friars have been having this season combined with the awakening zombie of last year’s defense to form a super team of invectiveness. Let’s call it the anti-Voltron. I mean, can that be any more fitting — afterall Voltron was the DEFENDER OF THE UNIVERSE . And yes, I realize I just incredibly dated myself.
Despite digging themselves in a massive hole in the first half, the Friars found a way to claw back midway in the second by forcing turnovers and taking advantage of La Salle’s strange sudden lack of aggressiveness. However, the evil arm piece of the super team of invectiveness, aka “Terrible Foul Shooting Force”, took over and made sure there would be no comeback.
It was obviously not the greatest showing for the young team’s first road game, but unfortunately there are going to be games like this all season. Let’s hope for a nice bounce back against Wyoming tonight.
Let’s hit up the recap after the jump.
