Media Roundup

Nice props for the team here from Todd Rosiak. Rosiak notes MU's rebounding improvement and taking better care of the ball as keys to taking home the GAS title -- a huge step for a young team.

Yesterday's Anchorage Daily News profiled the 2005 GAS MVP, Steve Novak. "It's a real honor," Novak said. "(Miami Heat star) Dwyane Wade got it the last time we won the Shootout, and to come here and keep the tradition alive feels great."

In a tip of the cap to MU's inside guys and overall conditioning, Dave Odom said "all of USC’s big men, including starting forwards Renaldo Balkman and Brandon Wallace, must improve their conditioning if the Gamecocks are to be a force against their schedule’s top teams." This may be true -- but unlike MU, USC did not have an off day at the GAS, playing three games in three days.
