Mills' Injury Dooms St. Mary's: Box Score of the Day
CHN now features a live scoreboard, stats, standings, etc.. here. Occasionally, we'll be featuring a box score of the day, with some commentary on why the box score is interesting. It might be involve a huge upset, a big personal effort, some odd statistical occurrences, or other intriguing tidbit.
Box Score of the Day:
Today's pick is.. Gonzaga's 69-62 win over St. Mary's.
It's unfortunate that the WCC regular season crown might be decided by a gimpy right wrist. Patrick Mills lit up Gonzaga for 18 points in just 17 first half minutes, before being sidelined for the entire second half. When he left, the Gaels were leading 39-33, before being dominated 36-23 in the final stanza. The classic Tale of Two Halves.
As of the time I'm posting this, there's little further info on the extent of Mills' injury. Hopefully he comes back soon. And for Mark Few, who said, "We beat a very, very, very good basketball team tonight. They are not all about Patty," all you can say is.. riight.
