    Default What sparked this streak?

    What are your thoughts on what sparked this 9 game winning streak. I remember my freshman year watching sharp, cj , od and boo playing and they seemed almost if not more talented than the team we have now. Thoughts?

    i think that the team finally learned how to play together. it can take some time when you have so many new players. i also think that there aren't any egos getting in the way either

    I completely agree w/ ya on this point. It did seem that we had a lot more talent on that team than we do now... definately had a lot more flash. which may have been the problem. the guys were more worried about a half court alley-oop than playing defense. it was deffinately entertaining, but we could only hope for a mediocre year.

    The streak started 12 games ago, kinda. The guys starting learning each others game then. We won two then beat ULALA everywhere but the scoreboard (missed 20 free throws & had two no call basket intereference). When we lost that gae and headed to South, everything was already in place, we just needed to finish.

    It's pretty simple really. We stopped living and dying by the three alone. Since we've incorporated driving the lane and improved on our zone defense, we've been unstoppable.

    Who knows, if Troy keeps producing top-notch pro talent like Umenyiora, Ware, McKelvin and Martin maybe it will be Southern Cal that is eventually known as "The Other" Trojans...
