MBB: Podcast and Reflections on 84-44 Win Over New Orleans

December 29, 2018

Baylor turns in another dominating defensive performance to bury New Orleans 84-44 as they get ready for conference play Saturday at TCU.  

  • The Bears held another opponent under 50 points and played stifling defense.  New Orleans ended up with only 0.62 points per possession (anything under 1 is good).  The Bears blocked 12 shots and got 14 steals.  Elite defense since the second half of the Wichita State game.  
  • Mario Kegler looked really good in the first half.  He made great basketball decisions, rebounded well and made some shots.  
  • Jared Butler continues to improve each game.  16 points and 6 assists from the freshman PG.  We seem to be better offensively when he is on the floor.  
  • Tristan Clark continues to give steady results.  17 points; 12 rebounds and 5 blocks.  He is now 80% in the paint.  He’s among the nation’s leaders in offensive efficiency, offensive rebounding efficiency, blocked shots and effective field goal percentage.  
  • Three point shooting 10-25.  Big improvement.  
Needs Work
  • Mark Vital’s free throw shooting.  He’s now under 40% for the year.  Went 0-4 tonight.  
  • Sloppy turnovers to start each half.  Need to clean that up against better competition where there is no margin of error.
