...tend to get better with time.
Doesn't mean we're going to win the p12 conference and p12 tournament again, but it does mean that the team is going to play better down the stretch once they both buy into Altman's system, and more importantly, learn to play with each other and to each other's strengths.
I think that's what you saw last night, Trojans. Plus a damned good home crowd atmosphere (the best one I've ever personally experienced at the 6-year old Matt Court) coming off the heels of a last minute win over a #2 team.
I really didn't believe Oregon could go 2-0 to start conference play. UCLA didn't play as well as they can on Wednesday, and I think with Benny Boatright (love that name!) it's a different game last night.
The games in LA in February will tell much about our 3 teams.
I think Oregon is now 2nd in consecutive home wins at 35. Kansas is #1 at 40, I believe.
