i can't take away from the win last night. we deserved it. but you can't ignore the fact that if St. Louis had those 3 guys in the line up, we would have had to work harder for that win.
we missed Gabby, we missed our 2nd leading scorer from last season for the entire year so far, weve missed cally, the backbone of our team, and we're still playing damn well.
