    A shorthanded and fatigued Wolfpack rolled into Mizzou Arena in Columbia, MO last night.  And for the first 8 minutes of the contest they looked every

    Nice win! Really important to have won that game.


    Yes, very important win, and most importantly…we looked GOOD and CONFIDENT for an extended period of time.


    Was glad to see the Twin Towers play with no obvious effects from the ankle sprang. As more teams concentrate on Cat with double team, hopefully Coach Gott will run offense to make quick passes to get our true bigs like Abu more into the offense. Cat will have a bullseye now from all opposing teams game plan. It was interesting that Rowan would actually be a senior in high school had he not reclassified. Thats really young to be thrown into ACC starting role. Go Pack!


    I liked seeing Rowan, not just drive, but also looking to dish the ball and getting a nice drive and dish toward the end of the game. If he can keep getting his shot down, drive to the basket, and have good vision to pass, that will be a nice multi-dimensional element of the team. Not to mention his defense is leaps and bounds above where it was in game 1. Was also pleased to see the bigs involved. Turned into a nice road win.


    2 points: Missouri is terrible. No wins over top-150 rpi programs. Nice to win on the road and win with ease but I doubt we’ll look back on this as a quality win. Not knocking schedule, gott does a good job with it.

    Cat needs to continue to take more threes. Throughout his career, he’s simply taken too few. Look at his percentages. He’s a capable shooter from behind the arc. It helps open up the drive for him and outs incredible pressure on defenses. I’ve always thought cat was too unselfish. Shot selection occasionally has been a challenge for him but he is the best option and he should be getting about 20 shots per game.


    One comment on Gott getting his 100th quicker than anyone except the Father of ACC Basketball:

    He did it without playing an embarrassingly cupcake schedule. I know he had more games in which to accomplish it, but so did other coaches.

    That’s saying something.




    Good game. We took care of business on the road in a must win situation. We can’t have any more non-conference losses.

    Cat’s really blossomed as a player. For those knocking player development, he’s an example of one that has really improved in his time in Raleigh. I know that he put in the work, but it shows you players can and do develop under this staff.
