Agreed, this was perhaps the first game this season where we didnt play passively trying to hold on to a slight lead. Let the kids play and their confidence will soar.

Hudson, Green and Eddie made free throws and the team continued to attack with the ball when on offense instead of holding the ball and waiting to lose the lead. It was a very good performance and VT seemed prepared.
For full disclosure: I have been critical of Greenberg's over demonstrative actions on the sidelines before. Funny how last night I did not care and loved to see it. So, I don't know what to make of myself. LOL. I appreciated the fact that he let the team play with a lead and trusted them to either 1) hold the lead or 2) pull further ahead or 3) if we lost it would not be because we were standing around and just not taking it to the basket.
