Darren Collison led all scorers with 22 and was clutch at the end to pull out the 72-68 win in front of the Berzerkleys. My vote for DC's best shot was the 15-foot fling with time running out on the shot clock and 1:26 left in the game. That put the lead to seven points and gave us confidence that we could really pull out the win.
We had another uneven start and trailed by two points at the half.
We started the second half better and eeked out a five-point lead only to lose it and trailed Cal until DC's layup put us ahead 54-53 with under eight minutes to play. Including that bucket, DC would score 11 of the Bruins last 18 points for a tough road win.
PAA continue to be the man with constant hustle plays and nearly had another double-double with 12 points and 9 boards. ND shook off the effects of a stomach virus; his defense suffered, but he managed to hit some clutch shots for 12 points and had 7 boards. JS also scored 12 and should have had more as he missed a couple of bunnies.
We'll take the win and enjoy returning home for the last two games of the regular season.
