Spokane: Rejection

By Lindsay Schnell - March 16, 2007

Taj McCullough, a junior who comes off the bench for Winthrop, just rejected a shot by ND's frosh Jackson. We're talking a real swat. And McCullough is wearing No. 31, so maybe he was channeling my favorite No. 31 of all time, Shane Battier, who blocked a few shots and played some defense of his own at Duke.

Things are starting to get a little rough on the inside, but the refs called an offensive foul almost right away, so I expect the ticky-tack pushing to stop.

Carter just had a thunderous two-handed dunk off an ND steal. (Come on, Winthrop guards, you should know better than to be throwing over the top of some 6-foot-6 guy in a press.) Brey just grabbed Carter as players went to a timeout to talk with him about his shot, because he's missed two threes and is pouting a little. I suspect his self-confidence is back up after that jam, though.

15-12, Irish with 11:35 left in the half.
