I was thinking that last night. But couldn't remember if it was ever disclosed what the surgery was.
I'm kind of with Connection. As young as this team is they need to use games like this to gel and get the ball rolling for league. This team has a **** of a long way to go and really not all that many (fairly) meaningless games to get it there. This team needs progress and I've said it before in this thread, the progress doesn't happen without effort.
Withey played well last night, even though he was about the only one to show up. But at the end when things got tight, he did a shit terrible job at jumping for all the pump fakes and got away with several fouls. He has to cut that nonsense out. This team is fairly boned if Withey gets in foul trouble. Either way, a triple double is a big deal, and I'm glad he got it.
The rest of the team pretty much played like warmed over nutsack. Releford, I thought had a nice game defensively, but missed on some big stops late. EJ hit a couple big shots, but I thought he needed to be more aggressive and didn't do well defensively. Traylor had some decent post position, but never got the ball. Maybe he wasn't as open as I thought. Young did some good things, but really doesn't help this team much. At least he's better than last year, where he was good for 2 points for the opposing team. Wesley is really terrible.
Team needs to get their head out of their ass.
