It's difficult for me to accurately comment on how the team is playing for one simple reason: I don't go to many of their games. I have been to two of them - Texas and West Virginia. Other than that, Groves covers them and Felix goes occasionally. I listen to them on the office radio more than anything.
A few things though regarding the weekend. Great win at Boise. Do they win if Jahmar doesn't go off for 33? Probably not, but a win is a win. And that was a big one.
Utah State, I thought the team played well too. The UtAgs seem like a good team once again. Pretty balanced. They got an off night from Carroll and still won. NMSU didn't fold on a handful of occasions when it seemed like they easily could have. The Aggies shot too many 3's - 30 in total. They only shot 35 percent from the field, just point at the 3-pointers as evidence to the poor shooting night.
Still, a split was solid I thought. Boise looks pretty decent and the rematch with both of these teams in LC should be good. The team also played well with an unproductive Justin Hawkins in the lineup. He shot 6-of-30 during both games. They need Justin to be consistent and playing at a high level.
Also, I heard Passos is coming back. Every day is different but that's the word on the street. Could be in the lineup come Saturday.
