Penguins hold Butler scoreless for last 3:51 and score last 10 points of game to win 62-60.  Kendrick Perry with a three to win the game as YSU survives the last 20 seconds.

Wow. wow wow

YSU led 25-22 at halftime despite being outrebounded 26-13.  Butler had 11 offensive rebounds in the first half.  First half key - Butler 1 for 9 shooting 3 pointers and 10 Butler turnovers to only 1 for YSU.

Outrebounded 40-30 for the game and shoot 3 for 9 at the line and win the game.

Nice to see the team get a win.

Kendrick Perry with the game winning 3 and 14 points.  Eargle (16 points and 9 boards) outplayed Matt Howard (12 and 4).  Blake Allen 11 big points.  Vytas in foul trouble all night.

Big big win.

Time to take my YSU flag to work tomorrow - bout time.

Indy--it was almost worth all of those close losses this year to beat that team. Thrilling win to say the least. Crowd wasn't really into it until late--I think most of them came to see Butler and were disappointed they didn't blow us out and wow the crowd. Onr thing you can say about this team--they do have alot of heart.

Disappointing 4 or 5 more of those close games could not have gone our way, but extremely happy watching this game on the laptop.

First half YSU had 1 turnover.  Halfway through second half it was only up to 4 turnovers.  That can make up for being out rebounded.  Seemed like Butler always had 4 guys around basket for rebounds while YSU seemed to be falling back .  D.E. played a superstar game.  Also the team was not as selfish.  Lot of driving to attract double team then dishing off to open man.  Played very strong defense.
