Meadowlands: Hibbert Out, Foster Sweeoping In

By David Scott - March 23, 2007

Hoya big man Roy Hibbert picked up his fourth personal of the game with 5:43 left, sending him to the bench. Vandy immediately capitalized as Shan Foster hit a 3-pointer next time down and then swept into the lane the 'Dores' next possession to give VU a 58-54 lead, causing a GTown timeout. Hibbert was then re-inserted by Coach John Thompson III (seemingly too early).

On the next possession, Hibbert fouled out of the game with a silly foul on Byars as he was attempting a deep 3-pointer.

Vandy now leads 58-57 with 3:58 left in the game.

Without Hibbert in the game (he finished with 12 points on 5 of 7 from the field), Vandy is going to be able to work ths ball inside and then kick it back with greater ease. You can almost feel the tide turning for the 'Dores, and we are certainly a bit surprised by this turn of events.
