GW Takes Charlotte

Barely.

A final score of 86-85 won on the buzzer in overtime after technical fouls and a GW possesion was called is not exactly a route. GW struggled, the lead went back and forth, three point shots were missed, easy layups were missed, and free throws were missed. The impression by the fans was that one ref was resolutely not calling walks on Charlotte (can't vouch for the truth of that) and missing other violations. The technical came in overtime after Mike Hall yanked a Charlotte player's jersey, and that kid responded with elbows to Hall's head. But in the end, Carl Elliot saved the day when he tipped in Noel Wilmore's missed three point attempt. I didn't think they would miss Pops this much, but the truth is that he is an important piece of the puzzle, and they're going to to have learn to function without him next year.

It was seriously heartpounding, suspenseful and, at one point I was like, "whoa, it's hot in here and I feel a little dizzy." Probably lack of oxygen from all the screaming I was doing.

On to the A10!
