I really like what I've seen from the team so far in the first half. They seem to be playing as a unit, looking for the open man, and really clicking. Here's hoping we get it for the second half, too, but I'm no longer as worried about the tickets I bought for Friday night.

What a confident half from a team without it's primary ball handler.

In all a good half, wish the crowd could keep up the intensity.

With Kofi hittin and kickin we'll be fine.
Have to get Kofi the ball each time down, ND has no answer and coach has the refs looking for fouls on Kofi.

Got a little shoot-out at the OK Corral action goin’ on. I love it!
Defense is making some strides…why are we not matching up: basket>out on the break?

Go home Chief, you’re drunk.
Nope, but I am sick of Hawk lobbing post passes and getting picked every game. I think Goode and other players should play until he quits making foolish plays.
Dunks against plays against crappy teams means nothing to me, you may be impressed but whatever. Hawk needs to wake up or sit.
I think R Jand Goode did well.

THIS gives me hope (*knock on wood*) … can you imagine this team full strength with Curbelo at PG, Kofi down low and we are this dangerous from three? We obviously still have issues to iron out, but hitting threes changes our offense SO much and raises our ceiling.

This could end up being the best thing that could have happened for Curbelo. He's now seeing that this team doesn't need outrageous plays from the PG...just steady solid ball movement and PAR with Kofi...with an occasional OMG DID YOU SEE THAT sprinkled in for the goosebumps.

Agree so much and we didn't have to ride Kofi too much..it's starting to get easier for him to pass out, I love it! Keep the turnovers down, play D and we should be fine....I'm proud so far.

That was a half of TEAM BB.............passing up shots for a better shot....Kofi unstoppable down low and when he passes out to the open man makes us so hard to defend.....

So glad to see Trent and Jake back on the court................RJ and Luke are playing great for frosh and i look forward to seeing Podz get some minutes tonight........

Very happy with our play tonight and portends well for the early conference games comimg up soon.................

Yeah I think this is more useful than the tape of the other games.

We played better with Coleman out. I like him a lot and I think he can be super in a high low offense if he cleans up the interior passing. But I’m a horse race he doesn’t quite have the ability to Lee up with the guys that were in the court when he went out.
Not dissing the kid I think he can be great and brings a lot to this team. It he’s not our best option in a track meet and that’s what we need sometimes.

Ok… but he’s sitting because he picked up two fouls in three minutes

The passing tonight has been the best I have seen in a while. Melendez has the length we need and Goode passes the ball well.
I totally agree. Most of our turnovers were on the bench that half between AC and Hawk. I am not hating on them but that is the truth
If our squad i.proves and cares for the rock they will be fine. We need to get stronger on D but this is a good start.
