I was very proud of the Trojans last night. Rice shot lights out from 3-point range, and still we managed to find a way to win on the road. Rice is not very good this year, but any road win is a good win. Dre Eggins and Stevie Moore had their best games of the year so far; very strong efforts from them both. Dre has had trouble with his shooting percentage, but he hit his shots last night. He attempted only one 3-pointer, which is not his strength. Stevie has turned into maybe our best 3-point shooter, or at least the hottest for the moment.
The Trojans continue to dominate on the boards, beating Rice 39-23. To do that on the road is pretty impressive. However, they have allowed their last two opponents to shoot well from the arc, which is a cause for concern, since Tulsa coming up lives from the 3-point line.
John Fowler had another strong defensive game. He is turning into one of my favorite Trojans, and has been a real steal. Speaking of steals, he had three last night, and won Bobby Vint’s Defensive Player of the Game award.
