I'm one of the biggest critics, so I feel the need to give credit when due. Despite not having much on the court to cheer for, I thought the crowd was outstanding in the second half. They seemed to instill energy in the team, and the players obviously appreciated it, as you could see them motioning to the crowd multiple times.
I also think it rattled USM. In the first half the crowd was silent (and understandably so). Once things got rocking, they had a hard time running their offense.
I think we lose this game on a neutral court. Kudos to all that were in attendance.
