Loyola -Marymount circa 1988-1990 anyone?
Their teams during those few years were involved in 7 of the highest scoring ballgames in NCAA history. No other team even comes close…
They scored over 120 points( ! ) in two of those games … and lost one of those.
That track-meet offense propelled what might well have been mediocre teams into an Elite 8 berth eventually.
Rick Pitino states he wants his team’s offense to emulate those Loyola teams.
Tonight he got his wish.
The Mocs decided they would run … so the Cards ran ‘em out of The Bucket 106-65.
It was run-gun-fun, with 7 players scoring in double figures, on 25 assists. The Cards popped 15 3 -balls, and shot a blistering 62% in the second half –and 49% overall.
The Cards D put on a show too, forcing 25 TO’s.
Last game was a step backwards…this game was full-on progress.
It was a hell of a lot of fun watching Loyola Marymount in those years.
I think it’s going to be fun to watch this Card team too…
