Quick thoughts:

1 Noah Vonleh is a beast. Forget shots; in the 2nd half he was everywhere: setting picks, steals, blocks, rebounds, putbacks, and help defense.

2 CTC has chosen basketball IQ & chemistry over athleticism. The guys look like a real team with complimentary roles instead of individuals trying to make highlight plays.

3 Troy needs to learn from Stan. Stan plays six inches off the ground and destroys defenses while Troy is flying above the rim out of control. Troy needs to slow down and play quick instead of fast.

4 You can see the progression in the young guys – it’s clicked for Noah & Stan, you can see Hanner & Austin getting it. Time for Troy and Jeremy to have the light bulb go off. It’s taken longer than I expected because of Glass’ schedule but we’re getting there.

5 One critique is still Yogi shooting too much. He needs to make the game easier for the other guys.

We should win at least 4 of the next 5.

Good stuff Aruss…

Im not in complete agreement with #5. I think him being a constant scoring threat attracts extra defensive attention and allows things to be a bit easier for everyone else. I loved the fact that Crean yanked him after 2 unnecessary perimeter shots and sent the message that he needs to attack the rim again. When he returned he was going hard, past the first guy, around the 2nd guy, and over the 3 guy.

He took 24 shots, but I’m pretty sure 14 of them were in the paint. I can live with 20 shots/gm with 14 coming in the paint. That’s a lot of shots for PG, but he and Gordon sort of split those duties now, so it’s fine.
