Somebody in the game thread mentioned this as a wake up call. I look at more like a good test of how it will be once we get to the tournament. Things won't be easy and go our way like the first two games. We will face a hot scorer or team and how will we handle that. This was a good test of how we handled it. Won't be the last time we have a game like this for sure.
This is the kind of game you need to put the fear of God into your team. Two easy wins and playing three days in a row is going to lull you a bit. They survived, but hopefully this is an eye opener for this team (particularly our freshmen).
