WOW, monster game for Thabeet. They didn't miss Jerome because of Thabeet's performance, but the guards will have to step it up against Pitt.. Lavance Fields is a really good point guard, he might be the key to the game, he has to be stopped. Keep the wheels turning toward another victory, I hope the home crowd will really get into this game. a raucous crowd always helps the home team. Go Get Um HUSKIES!

Regarding the perimeter guys picking it up a notch: I definitely think we will feel the loss of Dyson. He had improved a great deal over 07-08. I watched them play @ UCF in December, 07. That was a painful game to watch. Dyson was out of control and Thabeet had virtually ZERO offensive skills. This year,m Dyson makess much better decisions, he's active and appears much more focused; centered. I dn't worry about Price and Austrie-they are steady and they will come through.
The one who has concerned me in the past and continues to concern me is Stanley Robinson. I can accept the fact that I cannot see what the experts see in him, I am watching on TV, and he is just back from a layoff, HOWEVER, I still see the same Stanley Robinson I saw last year: aloof, passive, sloppy, lazy & telegraphed passes....He is one I worry about. I am glad he is playing great defense, but his offense has been pathetic.
Thabeet-great player, awesome defender in the paint, but hope he does not get to cocky-he still has lots of work to do offensively. He is definitely more active but, in my opinion-he seems too soft and WILL HE EVER BREAK THE HABIT OF BRINGING THE BALL DOWN RATHER THAN GOING RIGHT UP WITH IT?
Adrien-sure hope he can neutralize Blair. What an improvement Adrien has made this year. He even has some touch-very noticeable difference-even the foul line!
Go Huskies-beat the pants off those Panthers

One-More-Year!!! One-More-Year!!! One-More-Year!!! It's likely he won't be back for his senior season but it still would be nice to hear this chant from the crowd. Go Huskies!!!

Thabeet played great. Adrien was solid as usual. Stanley Robinson is still MIA. Must have more than 20 points total from Price/Austrie/Walker.
There will be games where Thabeet and Adrien will not be dominant. Strong front line of Pitt will be a test on Monday. Robinson and guards need to step it up!
