  1. Czar, enjoy your work, interestig stats.

    It was too bad that BSM's leading scorer came down with food poisoning the night before the Grand Rapids game and needed an IV an hour before the game to play. He was held to 7 points, 3-6 with no free throw attempts, 12 points below average. Grand Rapids deserverd to win the game and made a great run through the tournement. Sometimes stats don't always tell the whole story.
