In the first half, the view was of brake lights on the LIE as I was trying to get to a 6:00 tip off on a Friday. Can we not do that again? Anyway, once in CA the view from Section 3 was pretty good. The Johnnies had a lot of energy and it wasn't just frantic energy. The pace of the game would have seemingly resulted in a higher score, but the Johnnies did a nice job defensively. D'Angello looks great. Not only in terms of his game, but his leadership as well. You can see he takes his role much more seriously and it's just nice watching him play. SIR DOMINIC POINTER!!! Look, I'm a big Sir Dom fan. I just feel better when he is on the floor and tonight I had good reason once again. He does everything you want him to. He is great at cleaning up plays and his points always seem to spark something bigger from the rest of the group. Jordan looked like a freshman, but so did JaKaar in the home opener last season. I am still not sold on Sanchez. I just don't see it yet - hopefully I will soon. Two points before signing off. It was a nice crowd for 6:00 on a Friday against a local team. Good energy in the building. Second, while we did a good job defending the three - we didn't make any either. Is Hooper going to be worked into this system, or was it mostly hype?
