    I think MB is another big reason for our increased 2 pt fg %. We seem to be much better at getting easy looks on pick and roll as well. Great podcast fellas.

  • Thanks Sarge!

  • I just looked at his stats and he is shooting .595 from the field, so you’re right. That’s lie maybe 3rd best among those logging quite a few minutes. The reason I looked it up was I had no idea it was quite that high.. It just seemed like every time I really want him to hit one he misses.. I guess that’s just me.. because, overall you are absolutely right. Not shooting nearly as good on percentage as TB, but he is actually shooting great.

    some much needed perspective, and some cause for hope! would love to see them put together a string of games without a plethora of turnovers. i’m very curious to see how we stack up against the top half of the b1g if we can protect the ball

    I think we will do well against the top tier teams anyway, but it always helps not throwing away an opportunity. Players can achieve a perfect performance, but I think as a team you are always striving to improve game after game. Turnovers should still be a huge focus.
