vs. NORTH CAROLINA STATE(change from previous game)
- Jahlil Okafor +12 (-3)
- Justise Winslow +16 (+5)
- Tyus Jones +9 (-25)
- Quinn Cook +16 (-)
- Amile Jefferson +4 (-1)
- Grayson Allen +13 (+9)
- Matt Jones +9 (-6)
- Marshall Plumlee +19 (+19)
Notes: It was a career afternoon for Marshall Plumlee as the fourth year junior scored 12 points on 6-of-6 shooting. The +19 was the highest score in three seasons for the third Plumlee brother and his 12 points was the most he’s ever scored in a game. Of note, Plumlee is now shooting 79 percent from the floor for the season.
Grayson Allen and Matt Jones both produced nice games as well with Allen scoring a +13 and Jones hitting for +9 off the bench. Allen hit for 11 points and shot 50 percent from the floor, and saw his efficiency score pumped up thanks to three assists (vs. 1 TO) and two blocks.
As for the starters, Tyus Jones’ 8-to-1 assist to turnover ration was drug down by his six missed shots and 33 percent field goal percentage. Meanwhile, Quinn Cook scored a +16 and it would have been higher given the high percentage shooting (5-7 FG; 3-3 FT) but for his lack of assists, blocks, and steals (all 0’s).
