Keys to the Game:

  1. Big Lew's Big Day: After watching Robert Lewandowski's performances over the past two games, tonight could be Lew's coming out party as the Gents boast only 3 players 6'9" or taller. Let's see that Lew can do.
  2. Take Care of the Ball: I mentioned it this morning, but nothing would make me happier than to see a 2 or 3 turnover game from Roberson. Value every possession.
  3. Find Cook: Trevor Cook has struggled a bit because of foul trouble and he's been rendered pretty much ineffective the past two games. I'd love to seek Cook get back into his groove from earlier in the year and with a relatively small Centenary lineup, this might be a good time for this to happen.
