Ja's dunk is going viral. It's the first video on ESPNs MBB section. Bleacher Report and the official NCAA March Madness account tweeted it. Lots of others. Too many to mention.

You cannot buy this kind of publicity for Murray State!
I was thinking the other day, if you could put a monetary value on the free publicity Ja provides for the program, how much would that figure be?

I’m a little bit biased. But, in my opinion, Morant now has the 2 best plays of the NCAA season so far. And, they’ve come in back to back games.

Out rebounded by 10. If we aren’t plus 9 on 3’s that might have been a tight game. We have an awesome team. But, we’re giving up 77 tonight. 85 to EKU. 88 to a team that isn’t even D1. And, we we’re out rebounded that game as well. I’ll take a 21 point conf. win on the road anytime. But, the increase in points allowed and getting beaten so badly on the boards tonight concerns me. Sorry if I’m being too picky.

I agree. Some of those rebounds were just long ones that came out their way, but not all. The defense has been spotty for a while now. Sounds like SEMO likes to bomb away from outside, so hopefully they aren't too tough on the inside. I thought UTM quit playing with significant time left on the clock tonight. Not to much toughness coming out of that program.

Hate to be a Negative Nancy after a W. I'm as giddy as anyone over The Dunk, Brown's amazing night, and the Racer offense in general. BUT if we rebound and play D like this vs JSU they will beat us at least once, twice if we see them in the tourney. Shore up the rebounding and defense and we are looking at perhaps the best shot for a sweet 16 to date.

Anyone know why Quan isn't dressed or practicing tonight?
Guessing he’s gonna redshirt. Probably best move as he’s missed so much time. I’m fairly certain you can play a little and still get medical now.
Really hoping this is the case. Look at how much of an impact Tevin is having this year after readshirting because of an injury. We will need that type of impact next year after we lose Ja. Three years from now a senior Tevin with junior Daquan and Chico... the future is bright!!
Not to mention KJ Williams will be a senior then as well.

I totally understand the justification of wanting Cowart to start over Brion. I've heard all the reasons why he starts. But...

Last night Sanchious had defensive breakdowns that allowed Martin to score the first three baskets in the game. He also doesn't rebound very well and tends to turn the ball over in the post too much.

No doubt he performed better in the second half and he's had flashes of brilliance throughout the season, but he's not one of the best five players on the floor - on either side of the ball.

But I understand McMahon is loyal. I'm not on the coaching staff so I just smile and enjoy the ride.
Spot on, let’s be honest here he looked like crap a LOT last night like a LOT of the season in some areas of his game, but like you I’m relaxing and letting the staff handle it. They’re obviously doing something right, right? I was just having a bit of fun with the impressive persistence level I’m witnessing haha. Fun season all the way around.

I think Smidge is politely getting the point across. The evolution has already begun. The minutes are steadily increasing for Cowart and Williams and Brion is "resting" up for his next contested foul.

BTW, did anyone else notice that Cowart was out there until the very end of the game last night even when all the other reserves were in there?
