Not a bad showing for our first game. Way too many turnovers, and silly fouls. Seely, Vaughn, Yeager, Harris, Brandon, Marquis all can play at this level. Once Nelson is eligible, we can be pretty good, not quite deep enough to play our tempo yet - should be much better in Dec.
Competitive game. Need to be smarter when we get beat. It's better to allow the basket than to pick up fouls. I hope this doesn't become a trend. But we can't reach too much. I wish our guys would be a little better at playing the man on the rebound, it makes a difference. Charles Barkley was 6-foot-4 and could rebound in the NBA.
A smaller loss than the "experts" had figured. So that's nice.
Funny, I read the preview of the game and it struck me we won 20 games last year. And some fans were gleeful we got rid of our coach. Wow, this isn't the Hawking era.
Part of the second half demise was the screens set by their bigs on our guards. Specifically, their guards would drive the key from behind the free throw line. When our guard was cut off by the screen, Deuce Johnson was left to stop the drive. The guards flew by him without issue. Yikes!
