The Kids Are Alright

If you told me that Triche and MCW combined to shoot 4-20 from the floor, James Southerland didn’t play, and SU got outrebounded by 6 while scoring only 6 fast-break points and shooting under 30% from distance, I’d say there was no way this team won that game. But that’s because until now we didn’t [...]

40 minutes of James

Before moving on to tonight’s epic clash with the Eastern Michigan Fighting DaShonte’s, it’s worth looking back at Friday’s True Road Game, where the Orange came away with another Road Win:
