The Warrior Beat

The day after: Warriors ranked No. 25

November 28th, 2010

Spend a mere 13 hours in airports and airplanes, you realize the world keeps spinning. The Warriors are ranked 25th in the Associated Press top-25 poll. That's significant considering that media across the country now have to stay up to follow Saturday's regular-season finale against UNLV. 

UH fans should send thanks to "Ferd" Lewis, who voted for the Warriors.

LAS CRUCES — It was interesting to see the emotion when coaches and teammates spoke of running back Alex Green's 327 rushing yards. Green has been such a selfless player — blocking, never griping — that everyone was really happy for his success.

The Warriors were waiting for their fans to gather before doing a pre-game haka. But then they noticed that the Aggies were honoring their seniors. So, they postponed the haka until after the game.

After doing the haka, the players formed a line and thanked the fans who showed up. As Bryant Moniz said: "If there are 10 people or 100,000, we appreciate each one of them."

Haven't figured out how people can walk in with a giant flag:

After the game, the players autographed this sign:

Moniz's two cousins — Mike and Matt — made the 12-hour drive from California to watch the game. Good guys, good karaoke singers.

After the celebration, Andrew Manley came over to congratulate the Warriors. Here are Manley and Moniz:
