Can't hold out much longer -- gotta give some BOTD love to the power forward on my ESPN.com mid-major all-star team from last month. The two-time rebounding champion had 23 points and 18 rebounds (his eleventh dub-dub of the season) as Louisiana Tech beat Hawaii at home. Millsap scored eight of the team's first 11, and then hit a key trey with five to go. It's not listed anywhere in the boxscore, but he may have sold popcorn in the stands too.
Remember that "who's going to the Tournament out of the WAC" poll from last week, the one that didn't include Louisiana Tech? Well, they're now 3-0 in the WAC (a first for them), and is now tied with Fresno State for the conference lead. While it may still be too early to consider the Bulldogs a serious contender for the conference's Dance card (considering that they'd have to go through Nevada at their Lawlor Center to take it), Millsap is answering the skeptics and critics the best way he knows how - by dunking on them and outrebounding them.
