The Recovery Game
 
BEVERLY HILLS (MI) – In the previous edition of “From the Swamp” on the intricacies of college hoops scheduling, Saturday’s tilt with Robert Morris was described as a “recovery game.” The idea being for the Flyers to bounce back from a tough road test at UNLV with a game against a beatable opponent. Turns out the word “recovery” was doing a lot more work than originally intended. Not only did the Red and Chapel Blue have to rebound from what turned out to be an L on the road they had to recuperate from various maladies as well.

The most obvious infirmity was the ongoing saga of Malachi Smith’s ankle. The Flyer Faithful have been scouring the intrawebs for any evidence, photographic or otherwise, of Mali’s healing progress and an ETA for his return. The UNLV debacle produced more need for recovery, as Toumani sat out the second half with a tender knee and Deuce played while nursing a cranky ankle. Then on Saturday, it was revealed that AG’s guys were battling a flu bug that is making the rounds on UD’s campus. Koby Brea was definitely out and “Mongolian Mike'' and Tou were both sick but would suit up. Despite all these obstacles the Sons of Anthony Grant were able to produce this:

The idea of a “recovery game” is to afford the team a chance to re-energize itself in preparation for its next objective on the schedule. And what a challenge that is…a trio of tilts in three days, starting with Wisconsin on Wednesday at the Battle 4 Atlantis in the balmy Bahamas.

Bring it on!
