I'm really glad Derrick and Zak played like this in their last games. Really high level, and a great standard.
Coach B really made some positive strides in the last 2m getting this team together and showing what was possible.
DJ and Mo need to be a lot more consistent. I hope yesterdays game put some of the first round chatter to bed. Definitely put names in for the eval, but the two looked really rough, and hopefully this is a non-issue and both are back. If both can actually contribute significant minutes/points next year, we can probably survive the integration of the freshmen/CM and some X growing pains.
The only thing that hung with me as a critique of yesterday (aside from the blown boxout/rebounds and DJ's lack of physicality) was the lack of a non-iso play drawn up for the last two possessions. The last one, I get with the clock where it was but the prior one where DW drove and got stuffed... Watch Xavier's play from last night. Great play, great execution, and I'd hope we had 3-4 of those sorts of plays we could run to get 2s easier than 1 on 3 iso drives, and step back fadeaways.
Really happy DW got to steer things, and for him and Zak's final performance.
