Nice job. Cakewalk wins should be savored. Important for a young team to build confidence.

I love this juxtaposition.
It's so amazing to see a team that can do that sort of scoring when just miserable from the 3. The offense does not rely on any one shot or way to score.

How refreshing not to be on the edge of my seat for a season opener!

Free throws. Holy crap. You can be so tough to beat if you make your free throws

I love winning man, I %^&^%$% love winning, you hear what I'm saying, it's like better than losing! - Nuke Laloosh


I love burying a team that you should bury. Also, 34/37 at the FT line, even B1G defenses cannot stop that!

A team that can destroy someone they are supposed to ... without needing to hit 3 point shots to do it. I'm floating

Welcome to the Underwood era

Some nice things from the box score:

FTs: 34-37
2 pt shots: 28-42
Rebounds: +16
Assists: 17

Pretty sure we haven't seen stats like these, regardless of the opponent, in years.

We shot 34-37 from the line, rebounded well, forced 22 turnovers to our 10, and had 5 guys (almost 7) in double figures. We didnít shoot well from 3, but we got good looks so Iím sure thatíll improve.

The best part about this is we put up all these points and nobody looked comfortable running the offense. Imagine how good its going to be when they actually know what they are doing!

Just a much different style of play and could not be happier about that. Still a lot of work to do to get better but this could not be a better start to the BU era.
