— Slow dancing and no fun, but good to play a team like Miami early. Lots of lessons, maintaining defensive intensity among the most important. Cards prove to themselves they can do it, rewarded with a win.
— Terrence Williams makes fans wonder how Michael Bramos could possibly be averaging more than 24 points a game, not allowing Bramos to take an uncontested breath. Bramos was fortunate to wind up with five points — hitting one three-pointer but not courtesy of T-will.
— Good to see Edgar Sosa starting, hitting the two free throws this time to give the Cards their final three-point margin. Should do wonders for his confidence.
— Earl Clark just won’t be denied when he makes up his mind to block a shot. Just ask Tim Pollitz, not once, not twice but three times on one trip. Same for when he decides to go inside, hitting two straight clutches to put U of L back on top to stay the end.
— Andre McGee can’t afford to get lackadaisical, just can’t.
— Derrick Caracter, always smiling, just enjoys playing basketball. Would be even more fun without the fouling.
