    43 points on 56.5% shooting to go with 3 assists and 3 steals.

    Craziest thing about the points & shooting is that the Buffs had only 8 assists all night, so those were not assisted makes. Dude was playing 1-on-5 to make that happen.

    Another memory for the ages, courtesy of Ski.

    What a ****ing performance!

    I'd like to take this moment to reflect on all of the hate he has recieved over the course of his career here. Especially from quite a few members on the board. If anyone has deserved more love than he has recieved as a Buff, it's Askia Booker.

    Incredible game, incredible player, all-time great Buff. End of story.

    Looking back, I realize that Scoob is more than likely be facetious here.

    Sorry for the dislike. Realized it after your other post. It's sad, but given that we've had a poster tonight still criticizing Ski, you never know...

    You're really going to need to make posts like that drip with sarcasm (like your one in his 1518 career points thread), because we have had a lot of posters on the board seriously trash Ski all season, (and past years) if you don't want to get Dislikes and/or negrep.

    What I think is most amazing about what he's been doing this year? Nobody is setting screens for him. Or rarely, anyway. He's not coming off high picks and hitting open looks or camping in the corner like so many other shooters do. He creates separation like few people I've seen. And it's not like anybody else on this team will draw a double team and free him up. If his handle was just a little better, I'd think he'd have a shot at the NBA. Right?

    Only thing holding him back from the NBA is he's about 2 inches short. But with the way they've changed the NBA game to open up the court, who knows?

    Wasn't the microwave like 6'2"? #whynotski? I just made up my own hashtag. Is that how that works?

    I thought he was hurting after that flagrant foul and showed real toughness shaking it off - but it did slow him for a while.

    Tad said the team won't practice today/ 'Maybe shoot some foul shots and get a feel for the rims'

    What a gutsy performance by so many guys -even down to Dom showing real composure after those ridiculous late calls against him

    and this is pretty cool:

    In the first overtime, Booker pulled Collier aside “and told him, ‘Now is the time to grow up, right now. Not tomorrow, not yesterday, no other time. Right now.’ He looked me in the eye and said, ‘All right.’”
    Said Collier: “It meant a lot; it boosted my confidence . . . I grew up a lot. I had to suck it up.”

    Would have scored 50 if he came off the bench.

    This right here may just have been the difference between victory and defeat.

    Any chance you'll remain sick and sleepy for the UCLA game?
