A Total Team Victory For Ben Ball Warriors

The win against Michigan State earlier this season in which we were without DC (and Roll) was a huge deal. However, tonight at Maples our Ben Ball warriors pulled out what I think may be the most meaningful win to date in the post AA era.

Right from the tip-off Stanford threw everything they had at the Bruins tonight. But it was Shipp, Love, DC and rest of our boys who played the roles of stone cold assassins, who went up to Palo Alto and put together a total team effort through offensive execution and the prototypical inside the jersey, lockdown Ben Ball defense.

The final score was 76-67. Here is the box score. Shipp led everyone with 21 points.

Shipp's effort included 5 money bombs from behind the three point line, which came within flow of the game. But he wasn't the only hero. Love was steady inside with 13 points and 7 boards. More importantly it was the total team effort of Love, Luc, AA2, and Mata Real on the Lopez brothers and Stanford frontline, which left them huffing, puffing, and whining (the whole Lopez family) in Palo Alto.

This was a total team win. DC and Westbrook were outstanding in the second half too.

Enjoy it BN. We will have more tomorrow.

For now thread it up in yet another post game Ben Ball victory thread.
