Not On KJ's Watch
Not here. Not now. Kevin Jones didn't care about Georgetown's 11 game winning streak. He wasn't about to let something happen that hasn't happened since he's been in Morgantown. He wasn't going to let the Hoyas take down WVU.
If you haven't been watching Mountaineer hoops, you need to check them out before Kevin Jones is gone. Yeah it's true. Everyone expects next years team to be special as the young talent on the current team develops. But Kevin Jones is playing inspired basketball that could lead him to be player of the year in the Big East and possibly a national candidate as well. I think of names like Tyrone Sally, Frank Young, Darris Nichols, and Da'Sean Butler. Senior leaders who defined the personality of their teams.
Additionally, the new guys continue to gel. I don't think we're going to see any consistency from the scoring numbers out of any of these guys. But last week, the mistakes were very limited. 32 turnovers in the last two games doesn't sound very impressive, but 18 of them were from our trio of veterans.
Right now, KJ and company have themselves looking like a tourney team. With loads of inexperience and tons of hiccup potential ahead, it's still to early to say they'll cruise on to a successful resume. But we can certainly enjoy and appreciate some magnificent basketball that was played this week and hope that it continues next week against UConn and the rematch with Rutgers.
