It didnt suprise me that ML only had that many guys score, thats how its been all year. Theyre not a high scoring team, they'd much rather have the game in the mid 50's, and Wurm is averaging close to 20 pts a game, not to mention 9 boards a game. They dont have a lot of scoring options and are not deep. Wurm has to play a ton of mins, and if he's not scoring they struggle. I talked to a buddy of mine, who got the scoop from the game on friday and he said ML looked really nervous and played very timid. BBE played really lose and seemed much more composed. He said ML had some really bad turn overs, where they just would lose the ball out of bounds, or throw it at their teammates legs. He said BBE played some good D, but it wasnt smothering, where ML couldnt do anything, the IRish just didnt take care of it, and he said again that goes back to them looking scared. Which isnt a good sign for the Irish, because what are they gonna do come playoff time, if they find themselves in a big game.
BBE pretty much won the CMC on Friday. If they loose again in the conf, that would be a HUGE shocker! The Irish, will need to bounce back, and if they play well they should finish with only 2 or 3 losses in the conf, which would be a nice year for them in the conf, although im sure they would have liked to play better against BBE. Next year should be an exciting one in the CMC with a lot of good players coming back!
