Amen.
I saw a pretty knowledgeable FU guy last night who commented that they were ready for Skinner to graduate. And he had zero offers out of high school. ZERO.
I too like our chances in the last minute of a tourney game if we are close. We saw it at NC State and FU this week. These guys don't wilt under pressure and don't shy away from the big moment. They make plays; some how, some way. They find a way to win. I have seen MY quoted more than once this year: we will figure it out and find a way.
The team has Skinner's mindset: T-O-U-G-H.

His heart has been huge from day one ... it really stood out. He has been the poster child for hard work, enthusiasm, and team leadership. His skill set was not the greatest, but the last half of this season he really blossomed with his moves near the basket and the little jumper, without which we lose to Furman and don't dance. His passing has become very good as well. He is peaking at just the perfect time.

He's the epitome of the Mike Ayers quote:

"There will be times when you're gonna get whipped, stand up and fight again, fight again, and fight again!"
