Game Recap: PC vs. Xavier 1/25/14

As I discussed in the keys to the game, Desrosiers would have to come up big today to help Batts out inside and CD really did make his presence known with 7 rebounds and 5 blocks. I believe he was a big key in keeping Semaj Christon out of the lane for much of the day. The other big game today was from LaDontae Henton who finished with 23 points and 11 rebounds despite fouling out with a few minutes left in the game. Bryce Cotton was Bryce Cotton scoring 25 points and dishing 7 assists. I agree with Coach Cooley – “if you tell me a guy in the last month that has played better than him (Cotton) in the country, in the country, I want to know who that is.” I also thought Fortune had some key buckets throughout the game including the 3 and 1 he hit and the slick footwork and adept left handed baby hook to score in the lane. These last 5 games have been nothing short of fun. Some have been more fun during the game (Georgetown and Creighton) than others (SJU, Butler, Xavier) but the results have been fantastic. Now the real tests will come as PC heads out onto the road in 4 of their next 5 contests. The Friars will travel to Milwaukee to take on Marquette on Thursday and then head to Chicago to take on DePaul next Saturday.
