Cupcake Season complete: MU wins big again

MU completed the Cupcake Season without incident this afternoon. The Golden Eagles annihilated a horrendous Savannah State team 77-37 to move to 10-1 on the season, and (thankfully) appear to be healthy after a month of near-scrimmages.

Big East play begins next week when MU hosts Providence on January 3 at the Bradley Center. Finally.

Lazar Hayward and Dominic James led MU with a dozen points each today. The highlight of the game -- and perhaps a big boost for the rest of the season -- was the return of Dan Fitzgerald. Fitz returned to action for the first time in about a month and threw in 11 points in 16 minutes of action. The 6'9" forward was 3-5 from the field, with all of his attempts coming from long range.

Enough cupcakes, it is time for conference play -- after all, MU has played only one good team in the last six weeks.

Happy New Year folks. We'll evaluate MU's season to date shortly-- stay tuned.
