    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    You're all jealous hypocrites. - Titus on Laettner

    You see those guys? Animals. They're animals. - SIU Coach Chris Lowery, on Duke

    I actually went with Nolan. Zoubs was HUGE on the offensive glass. But Nolan locked down on Delaney in the first half (until foul trouble forced him to switch men) and hit some big-time shots down the stretch.

    I think it was close between Brian and Nolan, but I gave it to Z mostly because of how poorly the Plumlee's are playing all of a sudden....thank God Z has been there to pick up the slack.

    I went with Z but Kyle's double-double can't go unnoticed. Anytime you shoot below 30 percent and win credit has to go to the rebounders. Brian, thank you so much. 23-4 sounds good... really good.
    2009-2010 can't come soon enough.

    Zoubek with Rodman-esque effort, but I'm going with Kyle on this one.

    Forget points. That game was turned by the big fella with great rebounding and great defense. Zoubs saved the day and came up big when it was going wrong.

    Way to go Zoubs, with 16 boards you are the Man Of The Match!


    Honorable Mention to Nolan for knocking in the dagger 3 after the words with Hudson. Shut him up with your game Nolan! Nice answer that was!!

    Eh, but we wouldn't have kept up with them still even with Nolan's D if it wasn't for Zoo's boarding.
    <devildeac> anyone playing drinking games by now?

    2nd Half

    I only got to see the 2nd half (after having to chaperone a rec party with 8th graders ) and from what I saw, Duke went on their run when Zoubek hit the 3-point play...that seemed to ignite them.

    I think he is the X-Factor the Devils...he can take them far if he plays like this!

    Nolan and Kyle were great, but no Zoubs, no win.

    BZ for me. Agree that the big 3 all made clutch plays, especially KS, but BZ had the wow factor.

    I went with Zoubek. His work on the boards was awesome! He has really asserted himself the past few games. I'm listening to Coach K's postgame comments right now and K commented that Zoubek's three point play was huge and his rebounding.

    All of our veterans played great, all were difference-makers.

    As the backbone of the team, Kyle was excellent, he was MOTM.

    Zoubs fighting for every rebound, got us lots of second and third shots when nothing was falling, and in a game with a lot of fouls managed to play smart and avoid fouling out.

    Nolan was clutch, and came up big drawing fouls and sinking FTs. Clearly K has tapped Nolan as our go-to guy in late game situations.

    Jon - Even with a not-great shooting night, he had 7 assists, only 2 TOs and hit a couple of timely 3s.

    Lance - outstanding on defense, the VT big men especially Jeff Allen were kept under control.

    Zoubek

    I voted for Zoubek but also felt Singler had a heck of a game. It could have gone either way.

    Zoubs got us extra possessions when we really needed them. He was head and shoulders above the other players in the second half.

    Kyle

    I went with Iron man Singler.... 40 minutes, 25 and 10 for the double-double, only one close to 50% shooting, strong defense, toughness, two steals, no turnovers, the nasty block, etc...

    It is great watching Zoubek hussle, diving on the ground and drawing offensive fouls this year. He has been a force down low and his rebounding is strong. Thank you Brian for stepping up over this four game stretch.
