A Gutsy Win (plus Happy Thanksgiving)

Well that felt like a little MADNESS. Bruins shot l0.5 percent from the 3 pt line, were ridiculously atrocious from the charity line, and squandered away an early 17 point lead, yet found a way to win. Obviously there is so much room for improvement. Perimeter defense still continues to be an issue, FT shooting is a mess, and outside shooting needs to improve.

But yet Bruins put themselves in position to pull out a thrilling key early season win over a storied program led by a super coach. Mata, Luc, and Collison (again) were the rock starts tonight. AA despite a tough night from the perimeter made some huge plays down the stretch (besides providing his leadership on team defense):

Here is our box score and recap from AP. As I said above our team still has a lot of work to do.

This was a really gutsy win for the Bruins over a Kentucky team which will be much better than it's last year's 22-13 team. So enjoy the win.

Anyways folks I am out of here till this Saturday. Leaving town tomorrow AM for 3 days. I believe A will keep the Island party going here tomorrow night when the Bruins will take on a very impressive and tough Georgia Tech who pulled out a huge come back win against number 12 ranked Memphis Tigers.

For now though I want to wish everyone here on Bruins Nation a safe, happy Turkey Day.
