Austin: First Half Cold, Second Half Sanni

By Jean Neuberger - March 17, 2007

Ok, so the pun is a little's all I've got to work with!

Chakhia Cole has been quiet this half, but Olayinka Sanni has scored all six points this half for the Mountaineers, and WVU has upped their lead to 37-22 at the first media timeout of the second half.

What puzzles me is that Xavier seems content to play halfcourt offense. When you're down 15, and you're shooting just 7-30 for the game, why not try to speed this up? If I was coaching XU, I'd have them going to a full-court press and see if the Musketeers could pick up some easy transition baskets to get them charged back into the game.

But that's just what I think, and I'm on the other side of the court.

We've got 15:35 to go as West Virginia has the ball, trying to extend their lead.
