I know we all love Austin these days. I thought it was particularly fitting that on the day that the Washington Post published the article annointing Chris Wright as the "team leader", Austin provided some strong evidence to the contrary (and I guess Greg didn't care).
While I know that it is hard to monitor actual weight and eating habits, the facts this year speak for themselves. Austin is leading the Hoyas in minutes played, and remains strong at the END of the game where he seemed to fade a bit (or just disapear) last year. Whether it is dropping shots, getting out on the break or getting back on defense, this guy is on the move this year. And it is making a HUGE difference.
For those who remember the endless Jay Bilas comments several years ago about JWall being a "180 guy" (i.e., the mark of a great shooter by adding FG %, 3PT % and FT %), Austin is currently at 189.7 on this scale.
So nice to maybe have someone to rely on game in and game out this year. And no, it is not Chris Wright!!
