Notes and Thoughts on arachnophobia

The Richmond Spiders gave the Gamecocks all they could handle last night in the Colonial Life Areana. If it wasn't for Spiders guard # 5 David Gonzalvez getting into early foul trouble this game might not have had the same out come. Gonzalvez was a tough match up for the gamecock guards early in the game. Lucky for the Gamecocks Gonzalvez had a couple of touch fouls early in the 1st half that keep him on the bench for long periods of time.

Devon Downey had probably his best game of the season so far. After a rough start Downey took over the game both on offense and defense. Sam Muldrow carried the Gamecocks in the first half. Sam's post play has come a long way from last season. He can also make free throws which is a giant plus, as Carolina seems to struggle in that department just about every year.

Once again Evaldas Baniulis was ice cold from behind the 3 point line, throwing up a couple shots that didn't have a prayer of going in. He did finally hit a three late in the game from the corner in transition.

The most impressive player of the night was Jr college transfer Johndre Jefferson who had a season high 12 points. The General was getting a little worried that we might have wasted a scholarship on Jefferson, but last night he showed intensity, and a knack for getting on the offensive glass and putting back rebounds with some authority.

Does anybody know where Mike Holmes is? He has not been on the bench supporting his team the last 2 games. If you have see Mike please let us know.

Word is he got in a fight and has a busted face... broke the same bone in his eye that Geathers did.. now how ironic is that???

You don't find it odd that he hasn't been to a game since he go hurt. Archie is on the bench every game.
