In this entire thread, not much has been said about Tre. Neither of their centers is world class. Eboigbodin gets boards but doesn't score much. Murphy is only 6'8 and doesn't rebound well. They have 2 blocks between them in 2 games. Maybe this is the game he breaks out.

Two guys I took to the Providence game last year are in tonight. Pip might've been our Kyrie. This'll be tough, but I can see them surprising folks like the C's so far this year. Plus, our freshmen played with and against future NBA talent in prep school. We're not going to let their guard look like Pistol Pete.

18 points and 7 rebounds isn't breaking out? Well, maybe if he goes 6 of 7 from the line, that would be worthy of note.

I'm looking (hoping) for a 25/12 game.

East might be the best player on this team.. like MM said.. tre needs to do a better job establishing down low.. he doesn't work that hard for position. we are hanging around the 3pt line too much.. I do think we are wearing them down though.. see how they respond in the 2nd half

Giving up too many easy hoops.

That was a Three Stooges style exit East and Clergeot just made. Simply awesome. Not sure how this will end, but they have done a GREAT job on Roland. Dude has limited touches and forced a few. Diallo (et al) really played him well. Without a couple of bad bounces that led to easy buckets by NE the Minutemen would be up by 5 or 6. Really impressed. Samba Diallo is so damned smooth. Sean East? Damn.

Or not. Overall, looks pretty good to me. Teams are going to score at some point- press or not. It has caused plenty of problems with a few breakdowns. We wouldn’t say “half court d may single handily lose this game” if the score was the same without the press.
