I was unable to attend today's Gannon victory over Seton Hill, but looking at the box score, I would have loved to have been there to see:
* A 28-3 run. I don't think I've seen that since Gannon used to play Columbia Union and Penn State-McKeesport.
* Allowing a measly 15 points in the first half, and doing so after spotting the Griffins a 5-0 lead the first minute of the game. So -- do the math -- the Knights allowed only 10 points the final 19 minutes of the half.
* Points in the paint: 36-6 in favor of Gannon. Not many teams will be able to beat up Gannon in the paint.
* A total of 37 points produced by the starting backcourt, 20 by Adam Blazek and 17 from Girbran Smith. They also shot a high percentage, connecting on 12 of 22 field goals. That production will win you a slew of games.
If the Knights defend, pound teams in the paint, and get points from their guards consistently ...
I won't finish that sentence. Gannon will finish it for me Wednesday vs. Slippery Rock.
