Poor Colgate, you guys. That wasn't fun. I mean, I'm not complaining, I'l take an easy, breazy CoverGirl 86-51 win any night of the week. But seriously...
Halftime score was 43-13. I was expecting the teams to break apart and re-pick rosters at the start of the second half.
I said earlier today that the game shouldn't be close even if Paul Harris played the entire game walking on his hands. Now I kinda wish he had, just to keep things interesting. He played the game from an upright position and led the Orange with 22 points along with 5 rebounds.
Question is, though...was it is his ever-improving playmaking ability or was it the hair? I think it was hair. I really do...
The lone double-double of the night belonged to...Rick Jackson? With 10 and 10 in only 13 minutes, Jackson provided a nice cushion for the starters. Can't move on without recognizing he was 4-4 from the free throw line. With this team, that deserves a golf clap (The Orange shot a very solid 16-21 from the line for the evening).
Jonny Flynn had a low key evening with 12 points and 7 assists. It's the first time Flynn hasn't led the Orange in scoring this season. Arinze Onuaku added 10 points and 6 boards as well.
With the blowout, it was the perfect opportunity to give the freshmen some ample PT and they took advantage. Mookie Jones had 9 points and Kris Joseph added 7. Both saw over 15 minutes of action.
One note of concern though. What was up with 6'8'' Alex Woodhouse and his 7 blocks? Is that something I need to be concerned about? Maybe I'm just looking for issues where they don't exist but...seven blocks???
Seriously though, Colgate. If you want to take a break for a season or two, we totally understand. Take some time, play Cortland and LeMoyne a couple times to get your feet back under you. We'll be here waiting when you're ready.
