The Bills and Dayton EVEN

Recommended Posts

You have to keep the faith.... To those that saw this game as a blowout for the bad guys, they  should have known something was up based on the spread.

This was a quality win and a great team effort..... 5 players in double figures led by Foreman who was supercharged with 18 pts...and missed a double double by 1 reb...French missed one  by  2 rebs and Thatch missed one by 3 rebs.

Let's take a look at the WWN2D2W paragraph.....

"WWN2D2W....Day has a balanced scoring attack with 6 players who can score in double figures.....Stop their big 3....Toppin , Cunningham & Crutcher....No player should score more than 11 pts...with no more than 3 in double figures....We need to have no more than 11 TOs...Dayton doesn't force TOs...they are an F team in forcing TOs...we need to win the TO battle.  We also should win the rebound war.  Make the entire slash ...42/31/60"

"No player for Day  scores more than 11 and not more than 3 in double figures"...Actual top 3 scores had 12...11...11  and there were only 3 players in double figures....The had the exact  number of players in double figures and The Bills were within 1 pt of  holding them to  the triple 11 forecast...an outstanding effort and a definite pass....Win the TO battle....we did by 3 (worth an extra 6pts.) fantastic rate of only 9 TOs...Win the rebound war...we dominated on the boards....SLU  is 3rd ITN  in offensive reb with 12.4/gm...tonight we had 19 Off rebs (maybe enough to move up to 2nd ITN)...and this was the secret to the win...by sweeping the boards we got 26 pts on second chance baskets...Phenomenal. ...And finally the slash...42/31 /60...actual...42/25/ 63....I will give us a pass on this too as we were only one 3 Pt shot off from making the slash....One last thing ...FTs....while we lost the FT% contest  we won overall as we had an extra 9 FTM...nearly the winning spread....btw for those that missed it,  French made 2 consecutive  FTs on one trip to the line.....chances of that happening were only 11%....a special moment.

Bottom line....The Bills played with confidence and energy ...They played as a team...They took the final 2 1/2 min from the Richmond game  and played like that the entire game tonight. We won the game because we wanted it more than Dayton. Our shooting numbers were pretty much Billiken numbers.  However,  from the opening gun , we came at them and knocked them off their heels. They never did recover. We lead the entire game from post to post.

We need to bottle that and use it for the rest of the season.
