    Big bumpin' - our strength & conditioning coach deserves some plaudits

    What we saw last night was impressive for many reason. The strength of our players was what really surprised me. I wish that I had gifs to demonstrate what I mean, but our guys just looked beefier than ND's, and I didn't expect that.

    Niang, for his lack of height, sure can bump and bang down low. I loved seeing him enter the paint in defensive transition by running right at Cooley and bumping into him. He did this multiple times and really moved Cooley off his base each time.

    Another one I noticed had to do with Babb - he was playing great D and chasing his man around, but didn't see the screen until it was too late - for the other guy. Babb ran into a screen and the other guy went flying. Love to see that.

    Our S&C team is underappreciated!

    They are. What amazes me is that Ejim put on 10 lbs this offseason while seemingly adding inches to his vert. I don't remember his head being up in the rim last year.

    You know, there were all those comparisons of Royce to Barkley last year, but by the time Georges is a senior, he is going to be throwing guys all around down there. Pair that with his incredible bball skills and I forsee the price of my season tickets going way up(which I will happily accept with continued success).

    Yep. We are going to be dangerous next year I think. Our two best players last night are back next year! Hoping to see both Georges and Percy bulk up big time next year.
