I'm exhausted, so the full game wrap will post tomorrow morning. This is your post-game celebration thread as #6 Texas moves to 7-1 with their most impressive victory of the season, a 9-point neutral court win over a very solid Villanova squad. Had the Longhorns not been a disaster at the charity stripe, they'd have won by at least 15.
Three thoughts on my way to bed:
- This is the best team defense I've ever seen a Rick Barnes squad play. The help is absolutely impeccable.
- The team offense is much further along than I anticipated we could be at this point in the year -- especially after what we saw in some of the early games.
- Philadelphia sports fans are the scum of the Earth. Living amongst the trash for three years in Washington D.C., I can attest that they are the most disgusting, obnoxious, and classless group of hooligans "fans" in the country. Reports from MSG indicate that a half dozen fights broke out, all at the instigation of the bottom-sucking east coast scum from Philadelphia. The victory is especially sweet in that regard.
