This season started off with a bang as we unexpectedly took down #1 UCLA (who finished up ranked #1, RPI #1 and SOS #1) in an exhibition game 72-69. Since the non-con schedule wasn't too rigorous, we were looking for an undefeated season, but that hope was erased when we lost 97-94 at Toledo. It turned out to be the only loss in a regular season that turned out really well. We finished the regular season 25-1 and ranked pretty high in a lot of categories (#7 in the nation in points, #4 in point differential, #5 in rebounding, #1 (!) in rebounding differential, #7 in assists per game, #4 in the nation in blocks, #1 in block differential, 7th in FG%, #9 in FG% defense, #2 in FG% differential, #1 3pt%). We won our CT and went into the NT with a 28-1, an RPI of 24, and ranked #10. We got a 4 seed, which I was pretty happy with. We beat the 13 seed (Miss. St.) and sim 12 seed UNC, Asheville (9 seniors and 3 juniors running the press) to get to the sweet 16, where we faced 1 seed Miami. Miami was very similar to the UCLA team we beat in exhibition (100 aths all over the place with a bunch of 100 defs, hard to score). We cut their lead to 4 with a minute to go, but they made their free throws and we couldn't make it to the elite eight. I think I'll stick around for next year with a good core coming back, but if I can land the NC State or Georgia Tech jobs (not a chance I think), I'm gone.
