A few years ago BC went down and won the Paradise Jam. It was an unexpected run and announced that they were a team to be reckoned with. I thought this year's Jam would be another spring board. Instead we lost to St. Joes Friday. The big news is that Sanders went down early with an ankle injury. The team hung with Hawks but couldn't take a lead in the second half.
The good news is that the team rebounded well and the PGs were careful with the ball. We also made our free throws.
The area of concern is the porous defense. St. Joes got too many easy baskets and too many open looks from 3.
Instead of facing Purdue, BC will now deal with South Dakota St. in the consultation game.
I hoped for a better result but we've bounced back from plenty of early season stinkers in the past. Let's hope Sanders is not out long and the defense gets better quickly.
