I've been able to watch bits and pieces of the UC hoops game tonight, and while UC is playing a nobody in Texas Southern, I like what I'm seeing. This squad is young and is going to have its ups and downs, but it's becoming apparent real quick that we should start to see a whole lot more ups than we've seen in the last two years.

Yancy Gates and Steve Toyloy look like an excellent combo in the paint, something UC has desperately needed for a couple years now.

It'll be nice to get a few early wins and head into the Las Vegas invitational against Florida State playing well and with some confidence.
