Oh my gosh, what a game. Need to see that one on a decent video replay. Ugh, I am trembling as I write this. Can't wait to see the next 3 games.

They took a punch and fought back. Had some heart, need to figure how to rebound.

We had no business winning this game, but I WILL TAKE IT!

Should have been over in regulation if Sam could guard someone.

How did that even happen?

I fully expected us to dribble the ball off our feet on the last possession; having a senior hit a buzzer-beating 3 pointer is something that only real high-major teams have happen to them.

Maybe the Groce Era is different?
