I had low expectations today, so I'm not all that disappointed. I am a little disappointed that Tyrese Rice tried to do everything himself starting midway through the first half despite being double- and triple-teamed. Based on his ball hogging in the first half, I'm not surprised that BC had its best run in the 2nd half when he was out of the game.
Rakim Sanders was beastly today. He is going to be a special player. I just wish he wasn't so terrible from the free throw line, because he's going to earn a lot of foul shots.
Shamari Spears is not that good. His shot selection is baffling to me. He has no stroke at all from more than a few feet away from the basket.
Oates wasn't bad today. Paris was decent.
All around, the biggest factor today was just sheer talent differential - no more, no less.
I took a few pictures, but of course my batteries crapped out about five minutes into the game and I forgot to bring extras. I'll put up the pictures I have tomorrow.
BC Hockey is playing at Clarkson tonight (the game will be webcast on b2live.com) - I'm pumped for that!
