They say if someone is mellow they are not to be feared. Insert Fab Melo, no comes the fear. It was said that 'Cuse had no "one guy" that kept the team together. 10 deep they are. All true. Except something funny happened on the way to the game one day. Fab Melo forgot ot cross his t's and dot his i's. Academic 3 game suspension. Record 2-1.Lowest scoring output all year as a team. Insert Fab Melo back into line up. Beat St. John's on their home court 95-70. Fab scores carrer high 14 pts, shooting 5-6 from floor, 4-4 from line. Yes he only had 3 rebs and 2 blocks, it is his presence in the middle that was truely missed. 3 players had 14 each, 2 with 13 each. Team play at it's best and again 9 players with 10 or more minutes each, 10th player had 8 mins.
Dion Waiters said: "Hey, it's Orange nation wherever we go. This crowd was into it but at the Carrier Dome we can get them going to where the floor shakes. Now that's fun."
Imagine playing basketball in a domed football stadium and it is shaking?! Many Alum stick with their school, but nothing like the 'Cuse fans!
Side note as you should already know, Coach Jim just tied Dean Smith for 3rd all time wins and next season will pass Bobby Knight for 2nd. Then it is on to Coach K.
