The End of the Tournament Blues

Even though the high from Friday's win over Indiana subsided during Saturday's off-day, many of us were still hoping to end the weekend with a bang against #21 ranked Georgia Tech. For twenty minutes, it seemed as though that might actually happen.

We were down two points after a first half that had all twelve of us BU fans riveted. It was the best basketball I've seen out of the Terriers in five years.

When the second half rolled around, our players were showing the fatigue that comes with the third game in four days, and Georgia Tech finally started acting like an ACC team. We ended up losing by a score of 85-57 as we succumbed to some guy named Peacock who shot 10-11. He killed us.

But that won't stop me from pointing out our bright spots. John Holland broke 20 points yet again, and Corey played with more energy and gave more effort that I've ever seen out of him. Jeff Pelage is slowly becoming a force inside, and I can already tell that BJ Bailey has got some sick moves. He's gonna be good

We played sharp, but when it came down to it, we were simply out-sized.

All in all, I'd say BU had a good weekend. They fought for a come-from-behind win on Friday, and play 30 great minutes against one of the better teams in the country on Sunday. If the Terriers can play like they did in the first half against Georgia Tech, we're going to pile up a shitload of wins this year.

There was a lot to like from BU in San Juan against some very strong opposition.
Where we were found out was a lack of depth and an inside presence, although inside team effort against Indiana made a difference.
If Brittain can come back strong, and Pelange continues to develope (good athleticism, still needs to learn how to get a shot off)than there could be a lot of good things coming down the pike.
Holland showed what an excellent player he is against a high level of competition.
