    11 points, 4 boards, 4 assists, 1 steal & 0 turnovers.

    Also played very good defense. Probably his best and most complete game as a Buff, especially in a big game.

    Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oye, Oye, Oye!!!!!!

    Threading that pass to Booker on the break was pretty. He also had a couple three's rattle out.

    Concur on the MVP. I know Nate hasn't been viewed by some fans in a high regard as his other teammates, but I think his style of playing made him one of the more exciting Buffs to watch. His transitioning and passing were often spontaneous, which made way for some thrilling plays on the floor- and unfortunately this style also opened the door for more than a few ugly turnovers throughout season. However, he, IMO, commanded the team the best and made several clutch shots during tense game times. Kudos to the Aussie.

    And kudos to Tunks. You all bag on him, but he has shown a little promise. Developing big men takes years and years and by his senior year, he might have a few nifty post moves in his repertoire. At least enough to garner 20 mins, 8 pts, 8 boards, and 4 fouls on the opposing starting center. It's the Wisconsin model.

    brits have a pretty low opinion of aussies...since the country was basically a prison colony for them.

    nate played a great game....hurt, even, according to the KOA postgame. Austin, too, gets kudos from me.

    On that moving screen that wasn't called courtesy of the typical sub-par Pac-12 officiating.

    I spent a week in Perth. Loved it. They really like Americans and the feeling was mutual. I guess we have a lot in common, being former "territories" of the evil empire.
