  Peyton Siva is a different player when he steps on the floor at Madison Square Garden. In the last five games at MSG, Siva is averaging 13.6 points, 6.4 assists, 5.8 rebounds, and 2.6 steals. That’s pretty darn impressive, if you ask me. Siva’s play in the last two nights has made this look like a completely different team. Totals of 32 points, 13 rebounds, 10 steals, and 9 assists in the first two games of the Big East tournament, gives him a legitimate shot at winning the MVP award. He hasn’t played flawless, but he’s starting to look like the Siva we thought we’d say at the beginning of the season. This team struggles offensively and Siva is the only true play-maker on the roster at this point. Guys like Wayne Blackshear and Kevin Ware will be eventually, but not quite yet. Russ Smith can make plays, but it’s more of him creating opportunities for himself. Siva can not score a point, but still change the game by creating for others and putting his teammates in good situations....

  • Siva he's our man. Who would have imagined Louisville & Cincy playing for the Big East title and we are neighboring states. Where's the actual big east schools? Why jumping ship?
