No matter the tone of some of the posts over ont the Siena Board they really don't want to see us.
The spin is "Marist played their A game, we played or C game, we still won." Well now this is the second time that they have brought their C game against Marist and gotten away with it. Jeesh, maybe Marist has something to do with that. Don't know if they really want to test that hypothesis out again, when they will be feeling the pressure of tournament expectations.
The other spin is "I don't want to hear anything from Marist fans about free throw shooting, Siena missed more." Why should I give a shit how many Siena missed, the more the merrier. The fact of the matter is, if Marist make it's free throws to sustain the lead down the stretch there is no opportunity for Siena run and score quickly off the misses. Which was the only way they could possibly get back into the game. Marist epic display of incompetence fueled the comeback, you can't possibly make a case for Siena winning any other way.
