This is so great— I was just searching for this today; couldn’t find it. Ended up watching every game from the Final Four run. Also found a great 30-min documentary on the 1989 College World Series run.
This Shocker team was tough mentally and physically. They had quality depth with mature players who understood their role, were poised, and had 2 quarterbacks that could play point guard in FVV and Baker. Cotton and Wessel both had banner games playing tough on both sides of the court. On the 50/50 plays Freshman Brown outhustled future NBA player Kelly Oubre to one of them for a dunk and Wessel dove on the floor and man-handled the rock away from Perry. Cotton made both 3 pointers and 3 point plays the old-fashioned way. Baker and FVV showed basketball poise and IQ in this game as always. All of our bench with included Brown, Kelly, and Shaq. knew their role which was more limited than it became as they paid their dues in the following Seasons.
Here was a classic to see. Towards the end of the 1st half, FVV drained a 3 and it brought a huge smile to Coach Marshall's face.
Shocker basketball will forever be my favorite team in all of sports.
