Man, That Wasn't Even Fun

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. 

No Raider scored in double figures.  Mike Venezia led Colgate with 8 points.  Hometown boy Nick Pascale added only 2.

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 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.
