    Bad loss for our resident trolls and morons.

    Love it when we can double dip like that. ;)

    great win and I always love winning the conference. Never agreed with Cal that it's meaningless. We need this for confidence, seeding, and "the list".

    It's insane when you get on here after a win like that and have to defend it against trash

    I agree. Everybody stepped up. Bam played like he's been reading about his stock slipping. Monk was on a mission in the 2nd half. Briscoe played solid D, rebounded, and limited his turnovers while playing within himself. Hawk came up with big plays. And Willis rebounded.

    Best game of the season so far imo.

    So good to see them play at that level. We made a couple of good runs from behind, too.

    The Monk turned it on and it was over. We will need him to do just that every game the rest of the way.

    Won't happen 6 games in a row in Ncaa tourney. He is unreal when gets hot but we need Fox to make a deep run.

    Agreed.

    Bam is starting to round into form.

    Now we need Fox as the third consistent piece of the puzzle, and we can make some major noise in the tourneys.

    Today was a championship type win. Fox out, Florida came out hot both halves. Yet we battled back and won by 10. Just the win this team needed to get rolling, at the right time too I'll add.

    He was, but if winning the SEC tourney is meaningless Id imagine winning an outright is close.

    (I don't actually think Cal doesn't care about winning the SEC. )

    Defense and rebounding was better today. Dom did a very good job at PG with Briscoe having foul trouble. Timely plays in crunch time. Team is trending in the right direction at the right time

    HUGE WIN TODAY!!!!

    Our kids played the Pick-and-Roll much better today. We also OWNED the boards. Monk allowed the offense to go through him instead of just being the offense!!

    Hopefully this will be the start of a BIG run!!

    That's idiotic. Of course winning the conference is important. But he doesn't want his team losing confidence if/when they slip up.

    Agreed, this was big, and conceivably a corner turned. To win without Fox, and to score 76 after taking forever to break double figures, that's something. Bam seems to have seen a light. And the defense and rebounding.....First time we've looked like a contender in some time. Too early to say anything conclusive yet, but very encouraging day.

    Starting to get the idea our coach knows how to get a team ready for March.....

    If you didn't know that before now. Cal gets teams ready for March its been that way a long time now. That's why some of us have brought up some teams in the past to shut up the whiny a$$es but glad you figured it out.

    I was with you right up until the end there.
    The UNC game in Vegas was a classic, though. Both teams playing at an unbelievable level start to finish.

    Agreed.

    The second half was the first time in a long time that I watched these guys and thought "that could be a national title winner out there".
