Villanova Wins- Corey Stokes For American of the Century

If you were monitoring the various Villanova bloggers tonight on twitter, you will notice two things- the first being that Corey Stokes is the messiah, and second that the game against USF was somewhat frustrating.  They ended up winning by 12, but it was still too close for comfort a lot of the game.

Here are my thoughts from the game
  • Stokes now has official license from me to jack up stupid shots.
  • Maalik Wayns does not.
  • I normally don't question the coaches, but there was no excuse for Jay to take Stokes out of the game while up by only five in the second half. 
  • Cheek had a monster game.
  • Antonio Pena should never get the ball with the game in doubt and when free throws are needed.
  • Corey Fisher has finally come out of his funk.
  • I find it awesome when a player on the opposing team shares a surname with a Panamanian Dictator.
  • I don't find it awesome when VU has trouble beating a team the way they're supposed to.
  • Mouph had an anonymous game (to be nice) but the team still won, which is a good sign.
That's it for today, and I'll be back for more tomorrow possibly.

  1. Agree with your comments. The two things that bother me most about this team is (1) their lack of basketball IQ. Villanova teams forever have always been the more intelligent team on the floor -- this team has a deficit here; and (2) the big men are a liability and aren't Big East caliber players. They have flashes but we'll get crushed by Pitt, Syracuse and Georgetown for this flaw.
