    Default Thank You Cats.

    Thank you for giving us fans something that most college programs could not even dream of. I'm so thankful that I got to witness a 21-0 start and a #1 ranking for 8 straight weeks. This may be something that we never see again, so I choose to take a step back and marvel at the greatness you have been and hopeful for the greatness you hopefully will continue to be.

    I'm also thankful that you...
    Lost away from McKale.
    Lost without a starter on the floor for 38 minutes.
    Lost with a 0 assist game from TJM as I can't see this sitting well with him.
    Lost while winning almost every statistical category (except for the ones that should fire up our defense).
    Lost while being 16-16 from the free-throw line.
    Lost after showing the resiliency to come back from 9 down in the second half in a hostile environment.
    Lost on a well-defended last second fade away jumper over a 7-footer.
    Lost to someone else not with ASU on their chest to end the streak.

    Our stated goal at the beginning of the season was to win a conference championship and then a birth into the Final Four. If you continue to improve, both of those goals are still well within reach. Being undefeated this late into the season was only icing on the cake...an icing that most never taste.

    I look forward to March. Bear Down.

    Agree with everything and would like to add that tonight, I'm praying. I'm praying that Brandon's injury will not be serious enough to lose him for the rest of the season.

    Bear Down Wildcats!

    Love the sentiment, but it is usually something seen at the end of the year. Hope that isn't the case.

    Thanks for the great post! It was a very tough night for everyone. It doesn't diminish what a great season we have had. Thanks for helping us take a step back and smell the roses. We always tend to learn a lot more about ourselves and others when things don't go well. Best to BA this week and a quick recovery. Go CATS!!

    It's been a great run and the best is yet to come. We will peak in March and roll. Hope BA is a part of that come tourney time. If not we will figure it out. I don't doubt the toughness of this team. We will need it the rest of the way.

    Our offense hasn't really been a problem until the last 3 games. For the most part, we were able to score on anyone for most of the season. I'd attribute our offensive struggles to 25% skill, 25% pressure and 50% Hero Ball. I'm hoping that last night's loss takes some pressure off of us and get's the heros to buy back into what was working at the beginning of the season.

    I'd just like to note for the record that this happened on the same night that Arizona Hockey snapped their 37-game losing streak to ASU.

    So basically this is ASU's fault? I'm good with that. Down with sparky. (JK, but nice OP)
