Feels good to kick the crap out of a bad team that you should kick the crap of, doesn't it? The team made mistakes and needs to tighten things up on both ends but I love the fact that these guys run and are capable of hitting shots. Hurley's the man.

So who wins the EPIC™ for last night's game? VOTE AND EXPLAIN YOUR CHOICE, OR YOU WILL BE FORCED TO SIT IN A ROOM AND READ EVERY PAGE OF THE UCONN COURSE CATALOG WITH GLEN MILLER.

i wanted to give it to polley, but i went with gilbert because his line was so crazy. 11 assists to 0 turnovers? i really like guys who can affect the game positively without scoring.

Polley for his confidence. If he can level that up to swag, watch out.

It's got to be Gilbert. He was (unjustly, IMHO) destroyed here for the game he had on Sunday. Granted, they were supposed to win, but he came back huge.

Jalen Adams had a highly efficient 21 points in 24 minutes. 6/9 shooting from 2 and 3/6 from 3. More rebounds than Polley, 5 more points than anyone else. Easy pick for biggest impact. 3rd in voting currently. Too many people using their votes to boost players' confidences lol.

Probably not as much of that as a sliding scale. We've seen close to this performance by Jalen, we've never seen anything like that from AG and Polley. Especially after AG's last game and Polley's last season. Playing easy competition, this board wants to see improvement, just too bad it wasn't Cobb's D or Sidney's play.

Polley. Just because of the huge improvement he has made from last year. But the other guys listed had good showings as well. Trophys for everybody. That way no one has their feelings hurt.

Still being a casual fan in CA so I only caught the last ~8 min of garbage time. So happy that garbage time is a regular thing though this year!

Voted Polley because of the “Polley Trolley” thread title

Polley had a very nice game as did Jalen and also Brendan Adams. Alterique though affected the entire team on both offense and defense with his sterling play. Might be the beginning of a more pass first, run the team point guard look from him, especially because the team offense is beginning to mature. It's the next step for the team to get better. I'm just going by comments that Hurley made to the press concerning his discussions with Gilbert.
