All I can say is I'm glad this happened now rather than later. Brandon Davies is an awesome kid. I really hope he'll be back next year. As for the Cougars' loss to NM tonight. WOW. Clearly the team's head was elsewhere. Not only were the Cougars hurting from the loss of the big man, but no one played particularly well, not even The Jimmer, despite his 33 points.
So, while this is a major blow to the Cougars, I think the main task at hand is to regain composure and confidence. With a few days to let emotions settle and try to adjust, the team can do a lot for itself by scraping up a quality win over Wyoming. I can only hope we'll bounce back and regain some confidence in time for the NCAA tournament.
