  • We needed that. Good job by the guys to finish the game strong.

    • I do like the emergence of AM recently. Hard not to pull for him.

      • ES deserves a shout out too, he had a heck of a game and fought underneath for some tough boards.

        • I'll shut up about AM for a while.

            Why limit yourself to AM?

            Try giving credit where credit is due without making the off hand remark of, "for a while"..

        • Great win!!!

          • That Jones shot wasn’t all that “crazy” if you watch the replay. Especially for a lefty.

            • Wins feel so good this year. Proud of our boys. That was clutch. This is a type of win we couldn’t pull off last year. It ain’t all roses right now but there’s a core of young guys that will form into something special if they stick it out.

              Go Shocks!

              • We’re always on the losing end of last second shots and last second misses on our part. Glad to see one end in our favor. Glad it wasn’t a McDuffie iso as well. 3G still lousy at drawing up last second plays though.

                • With this young team, all wins are great. I hope at some point, they learn to make things easier on themselves by taking care of the little things.

                  2 steps forward tonight though.

                  • Now I hope we can build on this. Guys should have some confidence. SMU is not nearly as good as they played. Some of those shots were damn near half court.

                    • Geez! So hard to get a win this year. But...way to go Shocks!!!!!

                        He had several critical hustle plays

                          Yes, I thought Erik played great. Hustle plays, rebounds and some big shots, including being aggressive driving into the lane.

                          Yes he did, and he showed a lot of hustle out there tonight in addition to looking totally confident with his shot.

                      • I think that was one hell of a game. ! Great job!

                          Watching it in slow motion reminded me of Dr J!

                            Absolutely. Definitely doesn't get enough credit for the dirty work.
