Crimson Tide advance to finals of Paradise Jam

Led by Alonzo Gee we take care of Iowa in the 2nd half, pulling away and winning 72-60.
Box Score

It was nice to see many contribute... Davidson had a real nice overall game rebounding, scoring, and altering shots, Steele answered every Iowa mini-run with clutch 3s, Gee with his amazing dunks and overall energy, and Hendrix scoring at will in the paint and picking up some 'garbage' buckets.

It looks like we'll play 9 this year... which is awesome. We won't have tired players down the stretch (hopefully).

My only minor gripe... rebounding. Iowa got a lot of 2nd chance shots off long misses. The good news is we held Iowa to 38% from the field.

Iowa looks to be a team that might surprise in the Big 11. Smith doesn't play like a freshman and Haluska can't be as bad as he's been shooting in the tourney. They might finish 4th in the Big 11.
