We ain't rebuilding anymore. But we need a little more to take the next step.

Strange game for me. This is what we will see all year although this time we responded well.

Lehigh has consistently been strong defensively, rebounding and has the one of the best turnover spreads in the PL. We probably have the best quality depth in the league too. Those factors alone should keep us in virtually every game for the remainder of the season. However, we are at or near the worst outside shooting team in the league and opponents know it. BU dared us to beat them from the perimeter. Ironically, 2 of our worst 3 point shooters (HH and MS) each hit 2 in the 1st half to give us a small lead. MW who was shooting at around 30% from outside hit 4 straight in the 3rd quarter and the game was never close again.
Outside shooting may be the determining factor on whether we are just in games or we win them.
Interestingly, we are 1st in scoring defense and 3rd in scoring offense in the PL but have virtually no individual representation in the top 8 in any category. That speaks for our depth.

Need to disagree with you though on the bench clearing. I was a bit disappointed to see all our starters in until the last minute or so of the game with a 17 point lead.

Simply meant that "every" player got into the game.
