Great start!!!

Gees, the TV director likes to change camera shots alot.

Dutch said...

Any idea how deep LaSalle is?

Do they play 8 or 9?

these are the worst announcers i have ever heard.
i think not having kojo could hurt come crunch time.
i think lasalle plays betw. 8-9 but not sure if they said one of their players was out or limited today.

Need a strong start to the 2nd half to avoid the type of ending we saw at Fordham.

This broadcast has the look and feel of a HS game on PCN form the announcers to the camera angles and graphics.

These refs are a minute or two away from losing this game entirely

I give some credit to LaSalle, they just do not go away. Granted, our shooting is way off today, but they're a fiesty little team.

Hold On Boys!! Hold On.

under 4 to go. dukes up by 9
