Good to see. We're gonna need some senior leadership on the squad next year. I hope he continues to respond to the benchings with a renewed sense of urgency to learn and improve, and not with the "I'm entitled" attitude that so many players seem to have these days. If so, he'll be okay.

...and the roller coaster ride that is the John Bohannon show climbs the hill yet again.
Bo only played about ten minutes in the Rice game last night, but played outstandingly. He was aggressive on the boards, took good shots and made them, played great defense, and looked every bit like a junior playing for Tim Floyd should. The question, of course, is whether he will screw up and get benched again before he can build on his performance.
And the other player in question, CJ Cooper, could easily have been named MVP. The entire team played very well, building an 18 point lead about midway through the second half; but when we took our foot off the gas and let Rice climb back within eight, Cooper coolly hit three treys in the last five minutes to maintain the cushion and close out the game. He played great defense all night, made clutch shots, and proved that he deserves a spot on the roster next year.
I'm really excited about the new talent coming in, but I really hate to lose anyone from this year's team, Bo included. It will be very interesting to see how it all shakes up.

Okay, last post on this topic because I'm sick of this ride...
John Bohannon, yet again, was benched for the entire Tulsa game last night. And that was one of many reasons why we lost to them for the second time. Cedric Lang and Chris Washburn didn't play very well, especially their 5-12 performance from the free throw line, and we desperately needed some inside scoring and defense that Bo could have provided. (We also SUCKED on the defensive end, allowing drive after drive and committing stupid fouls once we let them get to the hoop. But I digress...)
Instead, the only role Bohannon played was apparently saying something in one of the time out huddles that sent Floyd into orbit. The whole crowd watched open-mouthed as a beet-red Floyd ripped Bo's head off and crapped down his neck before storming away, then going BACK to him and screaming in his face for another awkward moment while he skulked on the bench.
We'll never know what was said, but the message is clear. He is g-o-n-e GONE next year.
