To lighten the mood around here, I thought it might be a good idea for everyone to comment on our favorite memories from this departing senior class.
Mitchell Baldwin - I’m only a sophomore but I have seen that Louisville game twice now. Despite his occasional great performances protecting the ball, the way he played in that game was out of this world. Mitchell was always respected for his speed and ballhandling, and was one of the nicest guys off the court as well.
Chris Nance - UAB game, last season, when he made the Top Ten with a dunk. His dunk at Richmond was as equally incredible. You could always count on Chris to give 110% every game, especially last season when he was coming off the bench. Wish his last home game had gone a little better though.
Tripp Miller - I cannot honestly say I’ve ever seen him score any points, but anytime a walk on gets some playing time during a blowout in our favor, its a wonderful moment.
Marcus Bennett - There is really only one memory here, and thats the 29 pt. performance against Fordham this season. It was truly incredible to watch him hit shot after shot after shot.
Curtis Withers - This one is a really tough decision. It is between the St. Louis game last season (39 pts!) or his second half destruction of Dayton (20-20). In the end I will remember the Dayton game more because I got to see it in person. That steal followed by the slam will not be soon forgotten. Overall though, the thing I will miss most about Curtis is his ability to take over a game and lift the team on his shoulders, especially this season.
What about you guys?
Let’s hope these seniors aren’t done yet though, and that create quite a few more memorable moments before this season is through.
