This freshman attack player was very impressive. He scored 5 goals and had two assists; two of the goals by beating Epple, an All American defenseman. Virginia has some outstanding freshmen, as we do. I expect Virginia to improve greatly if their freshman goalie can develop and improve. For now, their goalie is their Achilles heal. If their goal tending improves I expect them to do very well in the tournament.
They put it on for Denver with 27 seconds left in the 4th. They put it on for us with 57 seconds left in the 4th. I believe Denver actually possessed the ball for longer than we did, but the refs still held off on the shot clock, so that Denver could effectively take the last shot.
Either have a shot clock, or don't. Letting coaches lobby during crunch-time is crazy.
