We actually fell behind early, but were too much for an overmatched Chaminade that plays in a lower division. Chaminade only had 8 players, and after playing an up tempo UNC team the day before, I'm sure they were winded. This win will not help us in the RPI. We went on a run late in the 1st half, and led 40-20 at halftime. So, that means we only won the second half by 2 points, against a tired division II team with 8 players. In fairness, we did empty the bench in the second half. The crowd was much more sparse today. I would estimate no more than 25 Bama fans in attendance, at least 25% of which were related to Coach Gottfried.
Up next, we play St. Joseph's and their arm-flapping mascot at 6:30 pm local time tomorrow (10:30 pm back in Bama) for the prestigious title of 5th place. I'm off to the beach.
