• It was nice to see Leon Wright-Jackson finally have a breakout game. He has remained upbeat the past couple of years even though injuries and inconsistency made it difficult to come close to meeting the hype he attracted when he first signed.
• Through most of the season, blog readers have been saying that UH should run more against defenses showing three-man fronts or playing man-to-man coverages. And while UH would have success with the rush, defenses knew they could still remain in a prevent defense because, inevitably, the Warriors would throw. And throw some more. Now that UH shows it can commit to a running attack, defenses have to respect that. There really isn’t any reason UH can’t have a balanced attack.
• Give credit to Richard Torres for working hard to recuperate from a pulled left hamstring. And also to R.J. Kiesel-Kauhane, who played in spite of a broken left hand.
