I am sure we are all surprised at how tonight's game turned out. I did not think we were nearly ready to win a road game. However, Coach Marlin's teams have generally played better than most would expect in conference road games since he has been here. What is encouraging is that two very influential players in the win are freshman. Long's 27 were a career high while Wronkowski hit the big three late in the game. At the time we were down by one. Payton contributed with 9 assists and big free throws down the stretch. Earlier in the game, Mbamalu hit some big threes to keep us in the game. The whole team must have played hard as the rebounds were about even. Before the season started and I saw two early conference games, I said 1 and 1 would be OK as there are 20 conference games this year.
Final comment for Zeebart, once again the Cajuns are able to minimize the impact of future pro, Tony Mitchell. He had three points, fouled out, and had five turnovers. I can't explain why the guy struggles against the Cajuns. It is one of those strange things sports brings.
