LOVED

  • Unselfishness, 12 guys played, 12 guys scored.  This team loves to share the basketball and make plays for each other.  This is a fun team to root for, they play the game the right way.  Credit great coaching and buy-in.  
  • First half defense, felt like Baylor made Nicholls work really hard to get a quality shot in the first half.   Held Nicholls to below 30% from the field and only 25 points.  
  • For a team where we were worried about 3 point marksmanship, how does #1 in the nation sound at 49%?  It sounds pretty awesome to be honest.  We do a great job of getting paint touches and then kicking out to open shooters.  Langston Love has been on fire (55%) and his teammates have as well.  

NEEDS WORK

  • Defensive intensity in the second half.  We got content trading buckets.  That could bite us in bigger games where there is not much margin for error.  
  • You want to see more active hands causing turnovers on defense but I did love that we only gave up 8 offensive rebounds on 40 field goal attempts.
