Growing Pains: Miami (OH) Postgame Thread

Full disclosure: I did not get to watch this game, but I tried to follow along as best I could. While this means that I'm not qualified to offer up any sort of analysis, I think a game like this only underscores the growing pains that I mentioned yesterday and what N sort of talked about this morning. I also see in hindsight why N had us all on upset alert with their all upperclassmen starting lineup.

The bottom line is that the Bruins hang on to beat Miami 64-59 (Box Score) behind 16 points from DC. I noticed that Shipp went 1-5 from 3 after going something like 1-6 yesterday. Just something to keep an eye on.

From the box score it seems that our freshmen were looking to our seniors to take the lead. I have to admit I was tempted to push the panic buttons with this game still in the balance, but I'm reminded that one of the best parts about the 2006 season (the closest of Ben Howland's teams to this one that I can remember in terms of experience) is the way the young players grew up in front of our eyes. Now is not the time to lose faith in the young guns, not if we want to do anything significant this season.

Since I didn't get to watch the game, I'd really like to hear others' impressions of it.
