MU clobbers Presbyterian

In its final tune-up before BIG EAST conference action, the Golden Eagles rolled past the Blue Hose 84-45 yesterday at the Bradley Center. Lazar Hayward took advantage of the matchup to deliver another double-double, this time leading the team with 22 points and 11 boards. Wesley Matthews scored 21 points. With the win, MU is now 11-2 on the season.

Coach Buzz Williams used the game to his full advantage in a desperate attempt to develop more depth for the upcoming conference season. Chris Otule played 14 minutes and Joe Fulce played a dozen. Still, Buzz was not impressed calling both players "pitiful" after the game (check out Rosiak's post game blog for details).
