Re: 2010/2011 UC Basketball official thread
I've spent the past couple days trying to figure out what was different from the team the played Dayton and the team I've been used to seeing the past couple years at UC. The first thing that popped into my mind is passion. UC actually had energy and desire that I haven't seen from them in a while and it started from the tip. Hopefully it is something that sticks around for the season, but it was nice to see for once even if it doesn't show again.
You obviously can't read too much into one game early in the season, but UC seems like a better TEAM this year. Last year was about Lance and Deonta. The best part about the win was the team was able to dominate without Gates. Hopefully they don't have to do that again, but it was nice to see. UC won't get much of a test for a little while again, but they are in a nice position going into the meat of the schedule if they keep it going.
