To me, tonight was the first real signs that 2 of 3 areas of improvement that could raise our NCAA tournament ceiling actually are possible…
signs of life at backup point guard. Really solid game from Simmons. He made a few small mistakes turnover wise but he also had 3 or 4 nice passes and was more aggressive off the dribble than any game all season.
Hello Duncan Robinson. He shoots like that the rest of the year, or even just his typical percent from years 1-2, this team’s offensive potential jumps enormously.
Now if only we could start making some free throws. Also that MAAR, Poole, Duncan, Livers, Wagner lineup was looking niiiiiice. That should be the answer in late game situations.
Lastly I had to rewind my tv and make sure I heard “Abdur-Rahkman is leading the country in assist to turnover ratio”. He went from 2:1 last year to 6:1 this year. Classic Beilien.
