this was a very stressful game, i trailed by as many as 9 in the first half and trailed 36-43 at halftime, violette stepped up his game big time in the second half carrying the team scoring 18 of the 32 points in the half, with 3 minutes left and a very thin lead i got 2 consecutive 3 seconds in the lane calls but luckily they didn't convert them, both teams went through a 3 minute stretch of scoreless basketball a lot of turnovers and a lot of missed baskets, i'm glad i could pull out the win though, i am now 35-1 and playing kansas in the championship!!!!

i was down 17-26 in the first half but i went on a 18-6 run to make it a 35-32 lead, with a 60-55 lead i ended the game with a 12-0 run to make it what the final score was at 72-55, raivio is the reason i won this game, when i was down by 9 points he got 4 straight layups to pull it within one, turiaf was a non factor finishing with 1 point 1 assist and 1 block on 0-3 FG, oh well, i finished the season 36-1

it felt weird without stepp at the point, what's also weird is that all of my new freshman are lefties, i had no idea when i recruited them it's just a freak coincidence, gilbert made a big presence on the defensive end with those 6 blocks and 18 rebounds, i love having the tallest guy in the nation, it's too bad he's slow as hell, i am now 1-0
