Sorry to keep crashing this thread, but wanted to post this for lag∞n, an example of how much chaos/disruption a team can cause that it becomes not only an incredibly physical game that also causes brute, unforced mental errors:

LMU scores 8 points in 5 seconds during their first-round upset at the 1990 NCAA tourney

all college teams should play like this

^^^NMSU was #16 in the nation going into the tourney. LMU had already outscored them 20-6 in the 2nd half PRIOR to that 8-0 run.

The physique and fitness of LMU was just beyond comprehension. You'd see it when they'd play really good teams, the game might be close in the first half and then the fog of fatigue and lack of conditioning would cause these great opposing teams to just slowly unravel and fade.

Here's the full game vid vs. Michigan (#13 in the nation):

A 5 point game with 14 minutes left in the 2nd half becomes an absolute bloodbath: Michigan stops hustling, arms dropped to their sides, they start turning the ball over, leaving LMU shooters wide open... LMU would just grind their opponents into the ground.

Final score 149-115 with LMU's second team mopping up for most of the final chunk of the game.

good ones matt. if you dont mind me asking... about how old were you for that spurs/rox game?

No playoffs or anything that significant, but I saw Sixers-Lakers on 01/25/2020 in Philly. LeBron passed Kobe in scoring that game and the Philly announcers made a big deal about it because of the Kobe-Philly connection. The next morning they announced Kobe died.

perhaps I myself was the object of my search (PBKR), Thursday, 4 March 2021 18:19 (two months ago) link
