Kevin finished the game 7-15 from the floor, including 2-6 from behind the arc. While his offense was subperb, KP's defense has improved immensely from his freshman season until now. Kevin finished the contest against the Friars with four blocked shots, and at times controlled both ends of the court. If he keeps that up, the better the Mountaineers will be, and the higher his chances of playing in the NBA will be.
It was another gritty effort for Mike, who overcame a poor three-point shooting night (2-7) and was the focus of the Friar defense for much of the evening.
He finished the game with six points and three assists, and was a perfect 4-4 from the foul line.
Tonight saw three contestants in the halftime Papa John's final second shootout walk away with $100 cash in hand. In another promotion, a contestant won a free trip to a club med resort of his choice after nailing a layup, foul shot, and three-point shot.
And after an inconspicuous absence of several years, the Kroger shopping cart shootout returned to the Coliseum floor. The contestant promptly threw the ball in all four shopping carts in the glorious return of one of the greatest Coliseum promotions of all-time. Hopefully the return of the shopping carts is permenant.
But please, I beg of you, do not bring back the inflatable Mountaineer.
