Heytvelt a man among boys


A lot of people thought Josh Heytvelt had a great game against Stanford. I wasn't one of them. I thought he was slow defensively, took a long time to adjust to the Lopez's brothers height and took a long time getting started.

But he's having a monster game thus far today. With Pepperdine only able to put one player on the court taller than 6-foot-7, Heytvelt is dominating.

Not only has he scored in about every way possible (13 points), not only has he already grabbed almost every rebound (five) possible, he's already altered at least four shots by my count.

He's the reason why GU has been able to overcome six turnovers to lead by this 13-point margin.
