- Jacolby Wells really seemed to provide life and energy on the glass in the brief moments I saw him. But he seemed like the guy that was needed for the job.
- Very impressed with Danny Thompson and how he seemed to inject some life and leadership when things weren't going as well as needed in the first half. I've always liked what I've seen from Thompson, even though we haven't seen a lot, but he showed me something new today. It was a good sign.
- The coaching staff continues to put the players in a situation to win ball games. Kudos to them. They are doing a lot of different things offensively, even saw a set or two of the old Phelan Flex in there, and they must have adjusted to go inside late. Raven Barber and Shawn Atupem are going to be spots where the Mount is better than most of its opposition.
- Julian Norfleet seemed to have his best game (or at least half) that I've seen. He was much more under control than what I've seen in the opening moments of the season, and his shots seemed to come out of the flow of the offense.
- Lamar Trice did a nice job off the bench. He has that Philadelphia desire to always get to the basket, but he did a better job staying within himself today. He also continues to show a jump shot that we weren't always sure would develop.

Observations from win over Florida A&M
I saw the first 18 minutes or so of the game, I liked what I saw, and I told my father before I left that if the Mount kept A&M off the offensive glass it would turn into a double digit win. Somebody tell me that is what happened. The Rattlers had 16 offensive rebounds for the game, I don't see a second half number, but it seemed like all of those happened early.
