Chris Moore is a grinder. (and I don't mean that as a knock on Moore... he seemed to have a way of dragging everyone he guards down to his talent level through work effort)

Watters' expressions during a 15 point win against the #4 seed were priceless. Gary Watters coaching 20 years ago would have made the Bobby Knight chokehold on one of his players seem new age coaching.

CSU seems like that team you need to pounce on early if you are Arizona or any school not willing to get as physical as they are. I think CSU would have a tough time coming back from 10 point deficit but is a team you don't want to have to come back on, if that makes sense.

Every mid-major team, even a good one, has a guy like Chris Moore getting major minutes. It could be worse. Some teams have nothing but guys like Chris Moore. Thankfully, the Vikes have only one Chris Moore- and one J'Nathan Bullock.
