This reminded me of the exact same team from last year, just a little more experienced and adding Robinson in the middle clearly helped the defense tonight. So far we are a very high effort team that is clearly playing hard for AAR, we mixed defenses well, made Creighton work very hard the majority of the night. We only had 10 turnovers, which is much better than last game.
Losing to Creighton by 7 looks good on paper, but is Creighton just that bad or did we make them look that bad? They had to come back from a large deficit to beat bottom of the SWAC AR-Pine Bluff the other night. They don't really seem to have any one on one creators that they could go to for offense, and they couldn't buy a shot (neither could we).
Honestly, I'm not even sure Creighton would finish Top 3 in the ASUN. I am thrilled that we were in a real ballgame vs. a Big East team that came down to the final 2 minutes, but I am on the wait and see train as opposed to the "OMG WE ALMOST BEAT CREIGHTON" train.
