This team lost it's top 3 scorers and the guy that ran the entire show in Carson from last year. They were picked to finish 9th in the PAC12. Instead they finished 5th and this was after a 0-4 start. This was done while playing the toughest conference schedule. They had to play the top 3 teams Arizona, Oregon, and Utah twice, while only playing the bottom 3 USC, Washington, and Washington State once.
: : I don't know how good U Conn was, but they are only one year removed from the national championship, and their best player was injured and didn't play, but a win is a win in the books. Strange timeout by Herb with only 9 seconds left, up by 7 points and U Conn having waived the "white flag" so to speak by not challenging the ball. He puts in Gilling and Barnes to shoot free throws just in case? Not something that a seasoned coach would need to do, even the broadcasters we confused.
: Never one to root against the Devils, but I am facing a quandary, namely, if ASU wins 20 games, Herb's contract is extended one year. I would prefer the flexibility of not having this additional year while at the same time rooting for the Devils to win it all.
