Holland. That's all I wanted to say, just Holland.

Tall-boy already said everything that needed to be said, but I just have to throw my two cents in after BU played their best game of the season.

Forced to listen to it online, it pained me every time the crowd went wild after a John Holland dunk or a Carlos Strong three that I could be there in person to witness the 97-66 thrashing of #2 Hartford.

Boy oh boy.

It must have been electric in the roof as Holland clinched the Rookie of the Year award (I'm wary of jinxing him, but if he doesn't get it after that performance, then that is just a felony) with his 38 points and 11 rebounds. He absolutely lit it up. Completely overshadowed Corey Lowe's 21 points, which I feel I'm starting to take for granted since it happens almost every game. Carlos looked like himself again with 16 points. Scott Brittain got 14 (at home!). Matt Wolff had 11 boards and 7 assists. Not shabby.

Strangely, Tyler Morris didn't play. Is he hurt? Is he resting? Does he have the flu? Who knows, but that meant Marques Johnson had to step up big and run the point, and it looks as though he did a fantastic job.

If this isn't enough, Vermont lost tonight, bringing us one step closer to the coveted second seed in next weeks tournament. Christ, is it only a week away??

We've got a real test Sunday when we head to Albany. If we can do to them a fraction of what we did to Hartford, there's good reason to be optimistic about the tourney, and for every other team in the conference to be scared.

Morris got a concussion in practice I'm guessing.

Either way, he should be back for next Saturday, hopefully against UNH.

Yeah Wolff mentioned it on the pre-game... he hit his head on the floor in practice like a week ago - they thought he was fine, but he starting having some headaches so they are keeping him out as a precaution.

He should be back for sure in the tourney, if not Albany.
