It's no secret around here that
I'm a big John Neal man. Again I was impressed with Neal's performance at
Shawn Taggart is slowly but surely getting better. The thing that impressed me about Taggart's performance on Tuesday night was the fact that he had four fouls. That's right, his four fouls impressed me. It means that Taggart is finally getting aggressive. He needs a mean streak to him and I hope that it'll develop over the season. From what I've observed this season on and off the court, it looks like Taggart is slowly but surely getting that mean streak that I'm talking about.
The best thing about Tuesday night's game was that it shut critics like me up. Curtis Stinson and Wayne Morgan both had a lot to prove to all of Cyclone Nation and on Tuesday night they got people thinking positively about Cyclone basketball again.
So where do we go from here? A
solid Texas A&M team comes to town on Saturday in a game that
The team then travels to
Putting basketball aside for a moment, there are more important things going on right now and that's Curtis's Stinson's mother. What a gutty performance by Curtis on Tuesday. No matter what people say, Curtis Stinson does care about his teammates and he deserves mad props for his performance on Tuesday. I don't care how many points he scored, Curtis Stinson proved that he was a winner on Tuesday.
To close I want to offer my thoughts and prayers to Curtis and his family, and I hope that he takes his time coming back.
No matter if he's there or not on Saturday, the Cyclones again will be playing in a huge game, not just for their season but for a teammate's mother.
