USI did a good job of pressuring the perimeter. WT likes to get up 35 or more treys and averages @37% made. That would have been 8 more treys made. Oh, well. It was still a good season, 34-4, considering we started 2 freshmen all year. Buffs will be really good again next year.

    Congrats to NW!

    I still have my doubts losing Hall and Quaid. Gach should be replaced without as much trouble. Not saying they won't be good, just not sure they will be able to repeat the last couple years

    With those 2 guards running the show I could see WT being very successful for the next few years using a Paul Westhead style run & gun offense/full time, full court press defense.

    I have a lot of faith in Tom Brown and his staff. They will replace Quaid, Gach, and Hall with players as good or better. I bet the Buffs win big again next year.

    I actually think yall were better this year than last. The offense was more multiple this year whereas last year, WT would go through spurts where David was the only one getting shots. He was a great player, but I think the team was better this year.
