Our defense was tough. BB pushed Aldridge way out, like I am sure Aldridge was not used to, took him out of his game. Thomas is such a defensive force, can jump higher than you think, and run the court like a demon on defense, you can't ever be comfortable that you'll have an uncontested shot. The knowledge that Thomas is lurking causes inside players to alter their shots. One thing that gives me hope for the final four, we shot poorly from outside tonight and we still won. I don't think D. Mitchell will shoot that bad again, hope he got it out of his system. Temple missed a bunch from the outside, hopefully he'll find his shot. Lazare made big shots against Duke, off against Tx. I think there is still upside to this team, they have not put it all together yet. If their bio-rythims all coincide at the same time, look out!
