This is what Harvard gets for trying to take over Allston

Notice that I didn't write anything about Saturday's game against Bronx College. I mean, that was horrible. Everybody was juiced about Corey's return, there was a big crowd there for the double-header with the BU-BC hockey game... and the team went ahead and sharted out their worst performance of the season. The Jaspers are a team that we should beat. Poor High Roller was actually at the game, and even he didn't write anything - that's how bad it was. I asked him to take a few pictures and some video for the blog, but he told me he had to turn over all his film to the BPD's homicide unit after the game as evidence, because the Terriers got murdered.
(ba-dum, ching!)

So after a series of "Terriers looking for answers" articles in the Freep and a new round of questioning Coach Wolff's continued employment at the University, you might say it was nice to pound the snot out of some smaht kids. Wolffie got the best of Harvard coach Tommy Amaker once again, having beaten him twice while he was coaching Big Blue up in Ann Arbor.

  • Carlos Strong was lights out in the first half, finishing with 22 - over 20 points for the third straight game.
  • Corey Lowe got his first double-double of his career, with 10 boards to go along with those 23 points.
  • Scott Brittain crashed the offensive boards with authority after a half-time pep talk from Wolff, and finished with a career-high 18 points.
  • Marques Johnson was steady at the point - forget about his career-high 11 points.. gimme that 7 to 0 assist-to-turnover ratio any day.

    You could tell there was a difference in the way Wolff ran the offense. Players were shooting only 10 or 15 seconds into a possession, as opposed to waiting until 30 seconds had gone by. On turnovers and defensive rebounds, Marques Johnson was pushing the ball up the court - BU ended up with 16 (SIXTEEN!) fast break points! That's got to be some kind of record for a Wolff-coached team.

    All in all, you can't ask for much more. But the team should accept anything less, either. These guys need to be firing on all cylinders by the time conference season comes around, and this is the way to do it.
