At least the game makes analysis easy: the good guys never had the lead, getting it as close as three to get our hopes up before the Hawks went on a soul-crushing 17-3 run. The Colonials were out-everythinged: outshot, outhustled, outcoached, outdefensed, outbenched, outlayuped, out-any other basketball word you can think of. At least we all got out of the Smith Center by 8:45 pm.
The students who sit under the basket seemed to know what was going to happen: they were all dressed in black and acted like they were at a funeral most of the game.
I brought my friend, a Maryland alum. He got to see a crummy, sloppy game with an angry friend. At least he liked the stadium.
