You knew a Matt Painter team is going to come back at you hard....we are answering. They weren't just going to roll over. They were out toughing us for the last several minutes. We gotta keep answering.

Trent is the catalyst for this team IMO.

GB probably should be a backup to KC....no more, no less. 10-12 minutes per game. He's just not skilled enough to do what they are asking him to do.
Except that we don’t have a better option at the four. It’s Giorgi, Kipper, Damonte, Jones... in that order. It’s really too bad Verdonk didn’t get that foot all the way healed.
 
I like the group of Frazier, Ayo, Griffin, Kipper and Kofi. As long as Kipper continues to play with confidence

I hear it said a lot that we don’t have any good shooters but this kid Frazier looks really good. Is this a one time thing for him?
 
I actually don't think Kipper has played that bad. It's a confidence thing with him. I think he brings more to the game at the 4 than GB.
I think there are certain matchups where Kipper is better than Giorgi at the four. I would’ve thought we’d need Giorgi there tonight for Purdue‘s size. But i agree KN has provided more tonight. Either way, we don’t have 40 minutes of quality at the 4 to afford Giorgi only playing back up 5.

no he’s been our best percentage shooter by a mile so teams guard him tight, so he doesn’t get off as many as we’d like. Because others haven’t hit at a high enough percentage teams can help from other places and make sure they always guard Trent.

Houston is proving that he deserves the minutes. Frazier is making us look like a better team tonight.

Gotcha, thanks Five.

That dunk Kofi through down in the first half was awesome. We look good today.
