Shot Charts From The War On The Shore
Class of 2004 member Tello Palacios more than held his own against two of the best in 2003. He had a big second half but Blair would eventually pull away. Many of his makes were of the skilled variety.
Luol Deng's 17 rebounds were impressive. He was forced to handle the basketball a lot in this one and he committed an uncharacteristically high number of turnovers, most of them in the second half which helped fuel an Our Savior rally. He would play most of the second half with leg cramps.
Charlie Villanueva had a "quiet" 19 and 10. In the second half, he started to get on the glass and helped make a difference for Blair.
