Before I do anything else today, I am giving out MAPOG. Granted, the players probably have no clue that we even do a MAPOG, but it is only fair to give them the recognition they deserve for playing a great game last night.
Our guys played their hearts out and captured a huge victory over rival Pitt. Absent two scoring droughts, our guys ran the offense well and found high quality shots. On the defensive side of the ball, Devin Ebanks and everyone else played in your face defense that completely disrupted any offensive rhythm Pitt tried to develop.
Sure, we got sloppy at times, but this was one of our most complete games of the season. Because it was one of the most complete games of the season, I am giving MAPOG to a player that got it done offensively and defensively: Devin Ebanks.
Congratulations to Ebanks for having a great all-around game and being MAPOG. Ebanks' line was 7 points, 16 rebounds, 3 assists and played great on-ball defense.
I’m not going to lie, I really wanted to give it to the Istan-Bull, Deniz Kilicli, but he did not play well enough on the defensive side of the ball. He has soft hands and really soft touch around the basket, and if he listens to Huggs about playing hard D, he could take us to the next level.
Later in the day, we will have a rant about the extracurricular activities and something we can all be proud of, another video by Dougity Dog.
