We shot 60% overall and 13/23 from three. I don’t think we can do any better. That was against one of the best defensive teams in the country. We had a few too many careless TO’s but my god, we would have had to play perfect basketball to beat them. They are really really good.
Despite our fairly impressive defensive stats, I wouldn’t call us a strong defensive team. We had no answer for them. I don’t know how you defend them though if Haas can’t be stopped one on one. Their shooters are lights out. Haas also had some really good passes too.
We have played our best ball against top teams now twice vs Purdue and at MSU. That’s a good sign. We haven’t played that great against the rest of the Big 10 though so hopefully we will be able to play at a high level the rest of the way.
