    Did not get to see much of the game. Obviously looks like Sags and Esa were dominant. How did our guards play?

    G’s looked much better. Knapper looking like he’s starting to get into the game. Had 7 assts. 27 mins. Only took a few shots. Didn’t need to.

    Harler was Harler. Solid throughout the game. This kid just needs to put the ball up. Shoot the damn thing.

    McCabe gets extended mins for another game. 18 mins. Didn’t shoot well. But looked a little more comfortable on the floor.

    Haley looked better than he did in the last few games. More forceful under the boards with 6 rebounds.

    The best part was that our G’s had only 1 TO and that was by Knapper.

    P.S. I did see some sort of a resemblance to a Press on a couple defenses. we actually tried to trap behind the 1/2 court.

    Baby Steps.

    P.S.S. Our rotation was still slow. Valpo moved the ball around and when we came over to give back side help or to stop a drive they would kick out. We rotated to the first guy about half the time, but the second pass was usually to a wide open guy.

    On O we didn’t pass the ball as well as we did in the StJoe’s game.

    EDIT:: That’s we didn’t swing the ball from side to side like we did vs StJoseph. At least this is what I saw. We did make an effort to get the ball into the paint much more……. and it worked.

    Why didn’t Wes Harris play?

    #75536

    Huggs said after the game that it was a coaches decision not to play both Beetle and West Harris. While Beetle also is battling injury, he apparently didn’t play today because of a coaches decision. Huggs didn’t explain why, but it was some sort of discipline.
