Not all wins are glamorous, but a win is a win.  The goal tending (non) call WAS a bad call, but those things were happening all game against both teams. The MSU fans acted classless and petty in their booing the refs the ENTIRE game!  Glad to see that the "cream" rose to the top in Over Time though...

Without that ridiculous three-point foul they called on Darius Miller (that I rewound over and over again to try to find ANY contact), the Dogs would have blown that game in regulation.  There was plenty of 50/50 calls that went MSU's way.

On a more positive note, Wall, Cousins, and Patterson all had double-doubles.  Wall was only two assists shy of a triple double.  That's one hell of a core.  Three top 15 picks in the NBA draft (probably two out of the top 5) 

Now if the supporting cast of characters can step up and play with a little more consistancy, they will be set for a championship run.  Bledsoe, Orton, Miller, Dodson, Liggins, and even Harris are all quality players.  I think they will be ready come March.
I can totally agree with all you said man.

Questionable calls were & weren't made. Glad our guys stepped up when we really needed them to. We still need a better consistency among the bench players, more importantly for March Madness. But I am pleased at the end of this one. Tough, true road win.

Last thing I have: Stay classy Miss. State fans

Throwing objects on the court, at refs and opposing players should result in an automatic loss of hosting privileges when those two teams play for the next two years.  In East vs. West match ups- 3 years.    

Good thing Ron Artest wasn't around.   


yeah, that was a discusting example of poor sportsmanship to say the very least!
