Didn't get to watch or listen to last night's game. We won 54-47. We beat up on a Temple team which always plays tenacious defense and solid half court basketball. Temple's head coach Cheney always the class act (or I guess "blunt" from a Temple fan's perspective) didn't think much of Howland's Bruin defense:
"I didn't think much of (their defense)," Chaney said. "Not at all. You can see by the score. Our problem was that we couldn't drop baskets. What it boils down to is putting the ball in the basket. They're a much better team for sure, no question. But I thought we were getting what we wanted to get."
In my pre-season predictions, I thought we'd lose this game to Temple, so the result in itself was encouraging. Let's see what we can do against an extremely athletic Memphis program, especially if we don't have Jordan or have him at less than 100 percent. In any event, these games will only get us stronger as a unit going into the Pac-10 conference. Howland will get them ready. Oh, by the speaking of Drew Olson, the official site finally unveiled it's Olson for Heisman website this week. Check it out. All right I am out again ... not sure if I will be able to post much, will try though. Meanwhile, you all ... post away. This is your Nation. GO BRUINS.
