Whether it was an illness or an inhouse decision, Pickens sat in the first half of today's game. On the first play of the second half Pickens was inserted into the lineup.

Geoff Collins' squad has a lot of energy today. Will be interesting to see if the emotions die off as we get later into this contest.
