We were able to play against him a couple times and we knew when your morning that it is changing you better be ready because his team would certainly be ready. One of the guys that came up big for him last night was former George -- former George Mason Patriots Luke Hancock. He had 22 points off of the bench but how is it for a player to transition from a relatively small school. And to a big powerhouse like Louisville. Well that player player like Hancock has to have tremendous amount of confidence because. You know -- most people say well you're really make a mistake if you go there he'll never play you just sit on the bench and that type of thing but in his mind in -- -- He knew we could play he's going down here and he's probably as important as anyone in the and so -- -- him in terms of Louisville stretch run he just seemed to. Have an incredible amount of confidence in shooting ability and for 65 guys. Really kept his school record against really good defense isn't he -- he was.
