Short and sweet tonight after the Blue Devils lost for the third time in 4 games.

The problem has become this: Ken Horton has gone from being able to carry a team to being forced to carry his team. As I said in the post below (sorry it took so long Matt), Horton is playing the best ball I've ever seen at CCSU on a consistent basis. But If he is asked to do it all, he won't be able to. He's Ken Horton after all, not Allen Iverson circa 2001.

Anyway, that said, Central now is locked into either the 3 or the 4. It's one home game, then a trip to the semis, likely in Hamden.

The LIU game is big for Central's confidence if nothing else. But we'll get to that tommorow. Let's suffer through this one one more time first.

Let's go man-to-man.

Joe Efese: You know what? He tried. Six boards, a block and a steal in 22 minutes. Once he figures out how to harness his natural ability and energy, he could be scary.

Ken Horton: The six turnovers can be forgiven because the Devils are now asking him to do everything. And he's delivering. 27 and 12 in 39 minutes. My only fear now is, can he make it three more weeks physically?

Shemik Thompson: His shot is gone and his confidence appears shot. But I believe in this kid, and I think he'll figure it out in time.

Devan Bailey: Maybe another turnover than you'd like, but the team had 24.

Robby Ptacek: 4-for-4 at the line. That's the only nice thing I can say about this performance.

Mark Laporte: If you're gonna get in, launch a couple young man!

De'Angelo Speech: Interesting to see if he's your starting 3 next year.

Chris Baskerville: If he could ever be consistent...

Terrell Allen: Perhaps the best game of anyone not named Horton. Three assists, no turnovers. Two boards.

Justin Alexander: Apparently drew huge raves for a sequence where he got a block and a rebound. I have a sneaking suspicion you'll see more of him Saturday.
