Hasn't looked to attack. Would love us to get him the ball on the elbow and go high low

Definitely. All traits of a team who hasn't played a lot together, which is why I've said we may slip up a time or two early in the year but by the end of the year almost all of those items that were weaknesses were fixable and should be by that time.

Both his and Brown's body control at this age is incredible.

Great floater from Akinjo at the buzzer!

Akinjo starting to get into the lane.

Stanford is playing him too tight. He can get by their guards, and hit the floater or dish it out.

Stanford has done a good job of being physical on D, and keeping the ball on the perimeter.

Akinjo- 6 asst 2 seals 0 turnovers and 6 pts.

Villanova is pounding #17 Tennessee, 35-15 at the half.

Might just be me, but I think the refs took away two more steals from him by calling fouls.

Barnes threw up his arms and said the Vols can't stop Nova with man-to-man. They've now switched to zone. Arcidiacano is schooling Kendall Brown's old teammate Kennedy Chandler.

With 15 min left in the game, we have 7 steals and have forced 12 turnovers. Not bad

We look much better to start this half. As long as nothing crazy happens we will win

All Fall Drew talked about how JTT had developed a good little baseline jumper and everyone was gonna be surprised at his offense. I was hoping this would be his breakout opportunity but not so far.

WOWOWOWOW. JTT catches the pass from Akinjo on the run and SLAMS!

Well barring a miracle we're heading to the Bahamas at 4-0 hopefully Flagler can get healthy for that tournament

Did someone earlier say we weren't playing good defense? Is he seeing this game?
DanaDane

The beauty of JTT is that even when he technically gets beaten on D, he's so active that he causes tumultuous conditions under the basket and opponents miss easy bunnies.

You must've missed the first ten minutes. It was not good.
DanaDane
How long do you want to ignore this user?
We weren't playing good D early. Got it corrected and playing much better, although Stanford is certainly helping because they are way loose handling the ball.
GruntTuff
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I did miss the first 10 minutes. Thanks

Bonner's length and quickness provided a defensive spark.

This is obviously a mid-tier Pac 12 team, but this feels great to see how we're handling them easily now WITHOUT Flagler. Can't wait for the games in the Bahamas.

JTT is going to be first team All-American next year. I said it a year ago that if he would just develop a good jump shot the rest of his game is really good and sometimes spectacular. Just needs a lot more playing time. His defense on Timme was so good Timme looked like he just started playing ball!
GruntTuff

Mayer needs to see a few drop. He will.
vanillabryce

No Flagler. Mayer off night. 27 point lead. Life is good.

Akinjo has found his groove.

First 10 minutes of 2nd half: 26-3 BU. Stanford hits its first bucket at the 9:40 mark.
DanaDane

What I love is that he doesn't commit very many boneheaded turnovers. His assist/TO ratio is spectacular, and even his turnovers are usually on good decisions that get defended properly.
