LMU has struggled this season, certainly. But they have a lot of talented
players on that team. I was especially impressed with Hamilton the last time
they faced BYU. Ireland is a pretty talented player as well. But every team
has talented players; and you can't get by on talent alone. But when a
team starts to play well together, they can do good things.After
seeing how LMU played against BYU in that last game, their run in the WCC
tournament just doesn't surprise me. I think they have a really good
chance of getting that semi-final match up with Gonzaga.
You are right. Any really bad team can make a good showing for a game or two
against good teams. Utah did it against BYU only to get blown out shortly after
by another terrible team. That's college b-ball.
Just goes to show that bad teams can make a one game push in crunch time. Look
