In response to candyfan
I posted videos here so to be easily found. However, in the BU/Lehigh thread, there are SO many good posts re: the game, the TEAM, the highlights, etc.
1. The BIG FOUR of Nana, Zach, Stephen and Kimbal really stepped up and provided leadership, as expected. Two thumbs up for outstanding defense in this game!
2. Bench was huge all season, getting better as time moved on. BU bench outscored Lehigh 14-3 in this one! D.J. and Sestina came in and made big plays up front. Bruce Moore, ditto! ALL ten players, supported by The Bench made significant contributions.
3. BU took 12 more shots, but BU made seven more than Lehigh. Ball control!
4. BU took ten more 3pt shots than Lehigh, but made twice as many as Lehigh, 8 to 4! More ball control!
5. Big time Kempton top game scorer with 22pts, but he has miserable shooting night (9 for 21) thanks to Nana and his cast of backups. Nana offset the former Player Of The Year with 17 of his own.
6.Kempton also led all players with 22 rebounds, but BU team outrebounded Lehigh 40-36. Team and bench!
7. Capacity crowd of 4254 came prepared in orange and LOUD. It made a difference!
8. And, the starting team comes back next season! Kimbal Mackenzie comes back for two more years! Coach Nathan Davis first two seasons a roaring success. Is he even going to shine more than the three previous outstanding coaches at Bucknell?
My .02 on the matter.
