SeattleHoo, in our last podcast, said that he would respond by benching Kihei Clark. Bennett was of the same mind, dropping both Clark and Casey Morsell from the starting lineup. It was a shakeup, but would it work?

Virginia v San Francisco + / – The Baby Steps Edition

San Francisco came to Bubbleville determined to make the most of the offerings, playing it’s third game in as many days en route to a four-games-in-five-days slog.
