Louisville MAPOG: Who Else, Kevin Jones

Note: This is 5th Year Senior's work, I'm just publishing it.

Kevin Jones had a double-double in the first half and found his mid-range game in the second half. He played 39 minutes and finished the game with 25 points and 16 rebounds, 11 of which came on the offensive end. I thought he had a chance to be the first WVU player to finish 20-20 since the late 70's, but everyone stopped missing shots. 

All season, he has been criticized for not living up to pre-season expectations. He shrugged it off and was a steady performer all season, if not spectacular. Is he ready to make a Joe Alexander type run or was this simply a season best game? We all hope he is ready to make a superstar type run.

 

Some notes:

  • Truck Bryant was crushed -- not fouled -- but crushed at the end of the game. Those that think fouls shouldn't be called in end game situations, also probably think 15 seconds is a long time for sex.
  • Our students rushed the court again after being favored by at least 3. That makes three times that has happened this year. Not only is the student attendance embrassing enough on its own, but the fact that we constantly feel the need to run on the court is absurd. Are we going to have to put fences around the student section, ala Mexican soccer, to keep you contained. Actually, that may create an intimidating environment and make Truck feel more at home.
