Absolutely ... saw him rallying the troops on a number of occasions yesterday. Good to see him being the vocal leader.

As much as I like RB, the offense runs smoother with SN at this point. Furthermore, IMO, RB really enjoys playing alongside SN. It appears similar to last season with SN and KW.

This team has a very similar dynamic to both the 09 team (Bazz playing the role of AJ, Boat playing the role of Kemba) and the 11 team (Boat playing the role of Bazz, Boat playing the role of Bazz) if that makes any sense. You need one guy that runs the team, gets everybody in position, etc., and then another guy who's job is just to come of the bench and play hard.

Makes a lot of sense and I agree.

Boatright seems to have a great sense for when the team needs him to try to make a play. It comes through as him forcing things sometimes but that is probably just because he is a freshman and can't quite limit his mistakes enough when he tries too hard to make a play. If he can mature a little bit over the next two months his ability to jump start the offense will be huge in March.

Lord know UConn has had its share of PGs forcing the issue. Always seem to have one on the team. You are right with maturity it will change.

RB plays so fast that when he tripped it was because his feet couldn't keep up with him. Funny moment in the game.
