Congrats on a great win, especially on the road. What makes the victory so sweet was the balanced scoring. Sure beats having Culpepper launching up 30 shots per games and shooting the Miners out of a win. Now it is on to conference play but please do not get a big head and underestimate your opponents.

Oh yeah!! Great to see this win. Balanced scoring even with Stephon not on his game. Amazing what focused defense can do. Where was Cooper? Maybe it's not so bad that he was out...?
