one disconcerting stretch was at the end- the full court press got to us with 2min left.  twice.

i could look at this as- we barely turned over the ball for 38min, with the press.  so all they got was 2 TOs late in the game against our bench. 

however, the way i saw it, it was two guards down low, and all of our forwards downcourt.  where's the help!  i know, it was late in the game and we were probably gassed... either way, great game boys.

Of the 3 bad TO's I recall, no way Garcia should be bringing the ball up from backcourt...EVER.  Mac is usually very good with protecting the ball, and had his pocket picked twice - I attribute those to lack of concentration by him, with a big lead in hand.  So impressed with how Makale, Elijah, Miles, and to a lesser extent, TPP,  broke the press with ease throughout the game though.   Remember how worried many of us were about the PG position going into this season?

P.S.  Makale threw that ball away once, right after a TO.  Total anamoly, IMO.

How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)
