Not sure what else needs to be said. When the man gets hot, watch out! 33 pts, 6-9 from behind the arc, to go with 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 5 steals. Karl almost single-handedly willed us to the victory tonight over the Mocs. Enjoy him this season folks because a talent like Karl is truly something special to behold.

I saw him do that in person last year at Elon, in the game we had to win to move to the tournament with the bye. It was amazing. However, I think the game tonight may have been even better. It really is not an overstatement to say that this early road game may be the most important regular season conference game of the year-for a bunch of reasons. I will never understand how a team can play as bad as ours did in the first half and as good as they did late in the game. It is what makes sports what it is. The guys won't quit. I really want them to figure out how to get it going a little earlier and make it easier on the fans!

Awesome effort by Karl and all the guys to overcome a slow start, hang in there, chip away at the lead and steal a road win at one of the best teams in the conference. I agree with Boulder that this was a huge game for our season. It sets the tone and starts the ball rolling. Now, on to the next one...

I didn't want to make that big a deal of it, but these guys are bound to be travel weary. From a HARD road trip to WVa and back they all took off for Christmas. Then, after the excitement of being home for a few days they had to come back and take off for a big adrenalin rush to Duke. Then home and turn right around for a long bus trip and four nights on the road to Birmingham and Chattanooga. It takes a toll To persevere and fight through getting the best shots that Samford and Chattanooga could throw is a big deal. Now they have five of the next 6 at home, with a trip to the Holy Land along the way. I hope our home folks will show up on Thursday night for VMI and get behind these guys. They are shining a bright light on our little school.

That VCU transfer for Chattanooga was a monster as well.

He had 12 points and 9 rebounds in the first half but we adjusted

What are chances someone give him a shot professionally. I think he could make an NBA roster.

The commentators on TV last night said the Charlotte Hornets scouting team was there to watch him play. Doubt he would get drafted but maybe signed to a roster practice squad or I'm sure he could catch on in Europe for at least a few years.

Stumbled across this old HS video of Karl tonight. I like how it says "Wofford got a steal with this kid"

Karl could play in the NBA. He is athletic, has a complete game (esp. defense), and has the eye of the tiger.

I have seen number of very good players in my years of following the Terriers (Greg O'Dell, Ian Chadwick, Noah Dahlman for example). But I think that it terms of sheer well roundedness, there has never been a player who was more well rounded than Karl Cochran. Karl fills up that stat sheet (points, rebounds, assists, blocks) and is also one of Wofford''s best defenders ever. He is so valuable to this program in so many ways. He has to be in the discussion for the greatest Terrier ever. And although we have a of great players in the program and a number of promising new guys that give us many resons for optimism for this program going forward, Karl Cochran can never be replaced. He is one of a kind. We need to make sure we enjoy him while he's here the rest of this season.

Cochran has a wide range of skills and a legitimate NBA shot, in the view of many. The rap on him might be the same as the one on Stephen Curry, which is his ball handling, which needs to improve. Curry really focused on that, and is now one of the best ball handlers in the NBA; Karl could do the same thing.

http://woffordterriers.com/news/2015/3/ ... ath=mbball Wish he could have had a big game on national tv against Ark. Still, look at the breadth of his contributions; great player.
