I was at the game this afternoon on press row and I must say it was as loud as any I can remember since the Maryland game with Steve Francis in 99. The crowd was exuberant and when Rick Pitino got his technical foul, I really thought that the building might erupt. It was great to watch these players, who have seemed to wear the last few losses on their fact, be overjoyed and celebrate as they did.
Of course I cant go much farther without praising my man Woo. As many of you know, I am a huge Woo fan and think he may be one of the nicest players to ever put on the UK uniform. He deserved a performance like this, and one that would get the fanbase on his side. I give him lots of props.
And in the words of Woo, “It was so loud that I thought the roof would blow off…..but luckily it didnt.”
